2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Getting a New 3.0L Diesel 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.
