Re: Should I go V6 or Diesel?

According to Jeep Oz, and these are driveaway prices, so ther factors are included,
Limited Petrol is $59,971
Limited CRD/Hemi $66,513
Since AUD is Close to parity, the US equiv would be similar. i.e. $6552
Diff is only $5,250 for Laredo

Re: Should I go V6 or Diesel?

I have got to the verge of ordering a Diesel this week the wait seems to be about 5 months so I am trying to find out the earliest we will get the 2013 models that will come out with the new ZF 8 speed box. If it is like this year the 2012 models started production by October

Re: Should I go V6 or Diesel?

Redfin - As far as i know, there is no confirmation of getting the 8sp in the 2013 models, so you may be waiting for nothing. I am only going to end up waiting 1 month for my CRD, and thats because i wanted a 2012 and a new colour. There are some other ones around, depends on your options and choices.

Re: Should I go V6 or Diesel?

I doubt if you would see MY13 models here before November.

Re: Should I go V6 or Diesel?

Hi All,
I did the comparison sums when I purchased my 3.6 Loredo just last month.

1. Currently in OZ diesel is 10c per ltr dearer than std leaded.
2. Service intervals are at 10k for Diesel not 15k for petrol,
3. Service costs for the diesel are more expensive.
4. And not forgetting the $5-$6k initial price differential

So when I added all this up I would need to keep the car for about 130,000klms before you get to breakeven with the fuel economy of the diesel. And I don't intend on keeping the vehicle that long!!

Yes I agree resale might be better and torque is also better but they are also subject to other conditions and situations.

So personally I'm happy with my decision to go for the 3.6. I luv the 3.6 it tows my campertrailer as if it weren't even on the back and as for pick-up..... I've betten many a car from the lights..... if that's your thing!!
