It has not been decided whether or not there might be a special six-speed manual shifter offered alongside the W5A580 five-speed overdrive automatic transmission, and an eight-speed automatic is in the works, as well. But the manual with the Quadra-Drive II transfer case on a Trail Rated Grand Cherokee would bring the glee Stateside even moreso.
Sweet! I hope that she gives out as much usable power on the road (passing merging) as the 3.0L WK.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee to get 3.0L diesel V6 in North America by 2013

Very Excited to hear that... right now being tempted by the new Charger... because I had an 06 SRT8 that I traded for the WK CRD. And also being tempted by the new Dodge Ram 1500 with the free Hemi or the 2500 with the free Cummins. Oh what to do? Love my CRD.. but......
