2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Getting A New 3.0L Diesel Engine From VM Motori

The new Jeep Grand Cherokee V6 diesel for North America is due to arrive around February 2013. The 3.0 liter VM diesel is a great improvement on the V6 diesel engine supplied by Mercedes for a limited time with the Jeep Liberty. Expect more power and better fuel efficiency with these new diesel engines.

VM Motori started supplying Chrysler in 1992 with diesels for European vehicles. Today, VM Motori powers several European Chrysler and Jeeps, as well as the Chevrolet Captiva. The new Maserati Levante is reportedly to use a modified version of the VM 3.0L diesel. Looks like good this to come with the new Grand Cherokee. I can only hope this engine finds its way into a Wrangler.

  1. Wrong! the liberty had the Italian 4 banger diesel. The Mercedes V6 was in the Grand Cherokee for 2007 and 2008 which was/is awesome smooth and powerful!. Hopefully this Italian motor can compare we’ll see.
