There’s no diesel option for the new Jeep Cherokee in SA at the moment, but the vehicle is available with an oilburner in Europe and the UK.
The vehicle is available with a 2.0-litre diesel mill that is tuned to develop either 101 kW of power or 123 kW. It is mated to a nine-speed automatic gearbox – the same ‘box found in the petrol versions of the Cherokee.
Auto Express in the UK has posted a video review of the diesel Cherokee, and although they like the vehicle, they say it isn’t the best in its class. Watch the video below to find out how the Cherokee compares to its competition.
