2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited EcoDiesel Review: Jeep Perfection with Incredible MPGs
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is the bestselling and most awarded sport utility vehicle in the history of the segment so when the Trail Rated brand makes a big move – the industry takes notice. The 2014 Grand Cherokee features the new EcoDiesel powerplant that allows Jeep owners to haul and tow comparable amounts to the 5.7L Hemi while offering nearly 30 miles per gallon. The current Grand Cherokee is a great SUV; adding a 3.0L diesel engine that allows you to tow 7,200 pounds while offering 28 miles per gallon on the highway (not while towing) makes it one of the best SUVs today…if not the best.
My 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee test vehicle was a 4x4 model with the Limited trimline and the 3.0L EcoDiesel engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Luxury Group II added $3,000, the Off Road Adventure II package added $1,795, the premium infotainment system added $400 and when added up with the $995 destination and base price, my test vehicle carried a sticker price of $48,785.
