The Jeep Grand Cherokee is already a highly popular, quality SUV. When they came out with the 2014 model, we thought, “How could they make this great SUV even better?” Jeep’s answer was simple but genius: make a diesel option.
Enter the 3.0-liter Diesel V6 engine, a beast of 240-horsepower and 420 lb-ft. of torque. Add to that an 8-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel drive, a 7,400 pound towing capacity, and a fuel economy rating of 28 mpg highway, and you’ve got a true winner.
As you can see, we are pretty excited about the Grand Cherokee Diesel. Not only does this model break the mold of gas powered SUVs, it also shatters preconceived notions about diesel cars. The drive is smooth and the cabin remains surprisingly quiet. The car doesn’t shake or have a delayed start like you might expect either. Plus, if you opt for the rear-wheel drive version, the Grand Cherokee Diesel can get up to 30 mpg highway – yet another perk.
As for the interior, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel is fully outfitted. Some unique things to note: a personalized instrument cluster, push-button start, an industry-exclusive Sky Slider sunroof that reaches both front and rear passengers, a wireless charging pad, and extra rear cargo storage.
