Is the Diesel GC Coming to the USA, with 8-speed Tranny?

I certainly hope so, and seriously want to order one.

11 Dec 2012 JD Power article

03 Dec 2012 autoGuide.com article

Does anyone have more info, especially for California?

Thanks guys, searching on diesel returns almost 500 results so that helped and the first post there was helpful. I'll work my way through that information.

According to Scottina yesterday the 8 speed will not be in the 2014s.

Nobody seems to believe him including me.

That was a different 8 speed. He didn't say it's not getting an 8 speed. It's getting the same 8 speed we always knew it was getting.

Re: Is the Diesel GC Coming to the USA, with 8-speed Tranny?

Jeep's site, jeep.com, has a big countdown timer to some "big reveal" that's going to happen in less than 3 days, on Monday the 14th at 5am Pacific (USA) time.

What's that announcement going to be? Will it be related to the Diesel engine's debut here in the US?

The CRD won't be produced until later, March I believe.

Re: Is the Diesel GC Coming to the USA, with 8-speed Tranny?

I just watched that "big reveal" on their web site, an announcement from the Detroit Auto Show. Half an hour. Besides a new Compass and refinements to the SRT-8 Grand Cherokee (with very cool looking blacked-out LED headlights), Jeep announced the CRD 24-valve Diesel with 8-speed transmission and paddle shifters coming to the US. Yes!

I have to call my dealer in Burlingame, CA today! I want that Diesel.

I think upthread it was said the Diesel won't be built until 25 March, or thereabouts. Jeep's President said it would be built in Detroit.

Thanks for the heads-up on this news story:
Restyled 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee hits Detroit auto show - Autoweek
Will mean a great vehicle getting even better! Not sure on the styling - but may look better in the flesh.

I like the updated styling. I will be ready for a new jeep by the time it gets to australia. Looking forward to it even though some time away.
