They just put out the specifications, no 0-100km times but it has 184kw @ 4000rpm and 570NM @ 2000rpm of torque. That is 250hp and 420 foot pounds. She will haul this baby

Don't worry, all the Aussies will come and brag here to tell you how good the diesel is with the 8 speed
The emissions system here may be the issue ... Complicates things

Re: 2014 diesel production

Or, it could be the fact that Jeep is making no profit on the CRD engines (as opposed to the handfuls of cash they make on the old Hemi designs).

Not sure where I read that, I'll try and find the source.

They are making plenty on the EcoDiesel through their "Bait and Switch" advertising! I wont buy a gas burner this time around. I want a diesel. The Mercedes GLK250, although underpowered and having less tech features in the cabin, is available today and get 33mpg. The base price is attractive as well. Yes, its an AWD car chassis....I'm replacing an AWD Murano so the JGC is a big step up, especially in the offroad capability.

You mean the GLK350? We looked at that (petrol-only then) before we bought our Acura. It is a wonderful vehicle but it is tiny in comparison.

No sir. I am referring to the same vehicle but with a dual turbo 4 cyl diesel. They are calling it a GLK250. The 350 is the gas version.

Ah... I didn't know they were using a different model number for the diesel. Still mighty small...

The 250 is the GLK250. Smaller body style, only 4 cylinder diesel, and towing capacity is only 3,500lbs. Think its built on a car frame. I dont think its really worth it. The 6 cylinder diesel is the ML 350, which is the one that is similar the the JGC. Bigger body style, towing capacity, etc.. as the jeep. Not a bad vehicle, but with the price difference, features, and maintenance costs, I would rather get the Jeep. As long as I can receive a VIN number by the end of year to get my 7% off invoice, I'll wait for it.

I just looked it up. The GLK250 is the GLK350 with a diesel engine, and it is actually $500 CHEAPER than the gas version. That's pretty stunning. IIRC it is based on the C-Class platform, yes. It is definitely not in the same class as the Jeep. We test drove the GLK350 and it was smaller inside than our Acura TSX sportwagon.

Diesel is usually the cheaper option with Mercedes. But hey when 70% of your build is Diesel globally except the US, that is easy to do. That and the $15,000 premium on the vehicle to start with on the same platform (ML350)
