Why do we have to wait till 2013 for CRD?

If the GC CRD is already being produced and is 50 state compliant, why do we need to wait until mid 2013 for it here in the US?

Re: Why do we have to wait till 2013 for CRD?

The diesel is a must if you want to sell big numbers in Europe, while in the US they are already selling so much.. so I guess that's the reason for keeping the US market waiting, when they are limited by manufacturing capacity.
Another possible reason is the engine is brand new and they won't approach US market before fixing any issue. Think about the disaster if the engine has problems: it's a VM engine developed by Fiat, it has to be bullett proof to be trusted by american customers.

Re: Why do we have to wait till 2013 for CRD?

They will prolly only do a CRD GC in the US for a few years if that and then discontinue it just like the did for the WK. It seems to me that they dont think there is a high enough demand for diesel Jeeps and they are very wrong. The problem is they only offered the WK with the diesel in the US in the Overland model the most expensive model WK so of course not many people that wanted a diesel bought one cause not everyone can afford an overland. But if they offered it in a laredo they might sell more because more people can afford it.

Re: Why do we have to wait till 2013 for CRD?

The 08 CRD my g/f now drives was a Laredo. Though it seems that most dealers are ordering them with a few options, so the only way to get a bone CRD is to do an order.

That may be but ive never personally seen any wk in the US that is a CRD Limited or Laredo. Ive only seen/heard of Overland models. Ive tried to find other models in the past and all i can ever find is an Overland in the US. But they might be out there.
