  • Fayetteville, NC (1888PressRelease) July 20, 2012 - With C.A.F.E. standards setting fuel efficiency standards for car manufacturers, Chrysler plans to increase its own fleet MPG by introducing refined new diesel engines. Combined with super efficient new transmissions and constant aerodynamic improvements, even large vehicles can achieve impressive economy ratings. These EcoDiesel branded vehicles will be available for customers at dealerships like Cumberland Chrysler Center as early as January 2014.

    While some manufacturers are trying to increase fleet fuel efficiency through other means like smaller engines, hybrids, and electric vehicles, Chrysler believes that refined, turbocharged diesel engines are the way to go. Diesel engines and turbochargers are by no means new technology and both have been proven and refined over the years. A turbo-diesel setup is also a very great way to get an impressive torque rating and powerful acceleration at both high and low engine speeds.

    Chrysler plans to introduce a 3.0 Liter V6 version of its EcoDiesel engine in the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Chrysler 300 vehicles. While diesel has never been very popular for private cars in the United States, this setup has already proven very popular and successful in European and International models. The European version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee with this engine setup achieves 23 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway. These numbers will only be improved by the 8-speed automatic transmission that Chrysler also plans to introduce in the near future.

    In order to get these EcoDiesel branded models available to the public as soon as possible, the 2013 model year for the Grand Cherokee will most likely be truncated. This would allow for the EcoDiesel option to be available at dealerships like Cumberland Chrysler Center in Cookeville, TN as soon as January 2013. Keep an eye out for more news on these super efficient and powerful engines from Chrysler!
