WK2 CRD sighting in U.S.
 
1 Attachment(s)
Took a pic of what looks to be a CRD WK2 today at the dealership I was at. Weirdly, the window sticker showed it has the HEMI, but the metal emblem on the back was labeled CRD. I was too caught up with working out a deal on a different Jeep that I totally forgot to ask about it. Dealer joke or factory flub?

I thought those weren't gonna be available here until 2013.

I hope mine comes with twin pipes, they have not announced the Oz spec yet.

I think the way it was worded is that it would be available BY 2013. Let's hope it is sooner rather than later. Hopefully it will come at the same time the new transmission is available.

I want one.....
Here in Canada, the diesel versions of SUVs generally outsell the gas versions.
Prices at the pumps today are: 87 Oct. gas $1.32/litre
diesel $1.19/litre

(3.78 L = 1 US gal.)

Yeah, my thoughts as well. Someone reaching into the wrong emblem bin at assembly. There was a VW Tiguan "TDI" at a local dealer a few months ago with the standard 2.0T (gas). Same issue.

It would be nice if Chrysler surprised us by having the CRD available to order when the 2012 order banks open up!

Are the CRDs available outside North America all made in US for export or are there other factories?

That's also a new CRD emblem that I've not seen before so it's unlikely the Dealer adding it on.
