Saw a CRD WK2 today in Chicago

Is this possible or did the guy just put the badge on it? It was a limited with the clear side markers on the from fenders so I thought it may be an early arrival or someone imported it.

We have the clear side markers on our export model to Australia - but the steering wheel is on the wrong side for you........if you get a chance, ask for a drive - you won't want to give it back!!!
You can recognise them from behind by the twin shiny tailpipes - no soot.
The CRD makes for a very nice truck.

Re: Saw a CRD WK2 today in Chicago

Hummm interesting. From the sounds of it I would say it was imported, but then again there are tons of people that put all sorts of badges on things, but then again, why would someone want to pretend they had a diesel Grand Cherokee? lol Doesnt make much sense, so I would say it was an import.

Re: Saw a CRD WK2 today in Chicago

Did it have a Michigan manufacturer plate on it?

No, private Illinois plates. It must have been imported.

Re: Saw a CRD WK2 today in Chicago

I saw one in NYC few months ago, same deal, regular plates. Spoke with the driver where he got the car from etc, etc. Eventually he told me that its a hybrid and you can put diesel and regular fuel and it knows the difference. (apparently thats what the dealer told him) At that point I just smiled and complemented his car.

Re: Saw a CRD WK2 today in Chicago

There was a thread here a while ago about Jeep putting the wrong badges on the cars.
It is possible this has happened a few times.
