Yep.. Wiki it, pretty interesting actually.

I love my 08 WK Diesel and living in canada I can go about 800km (500mi) on 80 dollars.

being able to haul as much as the 5.7 is a bonus too!

Re: WK2 Diesel First Drive

I want one. Even if mileage is optimistic it will beat 16MPG on WJ with 4.7L V8 by a wide margin. I expect it will be quicker and more refined. I'm holding out until it can be ordered.

Should be 2,500 rpm (may be more rpm)
800 Mile range, may be yes, but if You drive at 50 miles/hour speed into race ring.
No, 1500 RPMs is about right diesel engines aren’t high RPM engines. My 2008 JGC CRD was around 1500 RPM at 80MPH. The CRD just feels faster due to all the low end torque as it will throw you back in your seat. Mine only had 215hp but it felt like 400. At the time the 3.0CRD had more torque than the Hemi of that year. I got the best mileage after 10,000 miles and it was 22-23 city and 25-26 on the highway and that was doing 5-10 MPH over the speed limit and with my foot in it all the time. If they currently sold the WK2 CRD in the States I would be driving it instead of the Hemi right now. My next vehicle will be a JGC CRD or a RAM 1500 with a diesel. I’m just waiting to see which will be sold in the States first.

Re: WK2 Diesel First Drive

I have WK CRD 2006 3liters V6 (mercedes engine)
around 1650 rpm at 80KM/H
not at 80MPH (means 128Km/H
I do 4100rpm at 200KM/H (is top speed)

So there is a mistake somewhere.
Or different powertrain (but I dont think so)

In the States they only sold them in ’07 and ’08. In ’09 they were sold as an ’08 so maybe there is something different in the drive train. Mine was the Mercedes 3.0L and it had the WA580 five speed transmission and it had 3.73 rear end gears.

Re: WK2 Diesel First Drive

Our 2008 CRD ran right at 2,000 RPMs at 55 MPH (88 KPH)

Our new 2014 ecodiesel runs at 1,500 RPM at 55 MPH.
