Introducing The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel:

The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel joins the Jeep Grand Cherokee family setting extraordinary standards for performance, luxury and attention to detail.

What makes our ‘new-kid-on-the-block’ so special?…..a 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 Engine.

Combined with the advanced eight-speed automatic transmission, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel can attain up to 30 hwy mpg, drive up to a Best-in-Class 730 miles on one tank and tow up to a Best-in-Class 7,400 pounds to fulfill whatever your nomadic heart desires.

In addition, it has all of the other great features that are included in the entire 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee family:

On the exterior, a confident and elegant design exudes strength from every angle. From its daytime running headlamps to its power-heated folding mirrors with puddle lamps, the ruggedly good-looking and muscular exterior profile of the 2014 Grand Cherokee is engineered with a style and elegance that’s backed by the confidence of its all-weather capability and Jeep brand strength. For 2014, every Grand Cherokee from Laredo to Summit features premium styling treatments including new, modern front grille and fascia treatments, daytime running headlamps, projector fog lamps and capless fuel fillers.

Confirming the Jeep® brand’s place as the leader in 4×4 innovation and off-road capability, the Trail Rated®badge signifies that any Jeep vehicle wearing it has been tested to perform in five categories of off-road conditions including: traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and water fording.

Trail Rated®badge

The new Selec-Speed™ Control, which includes both Hill Ascent Control and Hill Descent Control, assists drivers with climbing and ascending steep grades. Hill Descent Control helps you monitor throttle, speed and braking when you’re travelling down the hill and need it most. The Hill Start Assist keeps your brakes applied after you’ve removed your foot from the brake; to give you time to accelerate — without rollback.

All of the Jeep Grand Cherokees for 2014 now come with a new customer-configurable 7-inch multiview display with leading-edge TFT technology that let you tailor all of your personal settings and graphics. Detailed information on your vehicle is integrated into the advanced, color-coordinated cluster, so you’ll be able to view: a full speed gauge, navigation system, Selec-Terrain® system, Quadra-Lift®suspension system and more.

The exceptional, new eight-speed automatic transmission provides better fuel economy, quicker acceleration and smoother shifting. Engage the new slapstick shifter into Sport or Drive Mode, and you have full control of the upshifts with the steering wheel-mounted paddle shifter controls. It also allows for a 45% improved crawl ratio of 44.1:1 to aid in off-roading (when equipped with a two-speed transfer case).

Eco Mode helps improve fuel economy by adjusting the transmission shift schedule, idle speed, interactive deceleration fuel shut off, and in V8 models, Fuel Saver cylinder deactivation. Automatically engaged upon vehicle startup, it activates the Quadra-Lift® air suspension system and lowers it when vehicle speed exceeds 55 mph. On 4WD models in 4H, it alters the front-to-rear torque split to increase fuel efficiency.

Legendary Jeep vehicle capability improves with the Selec-Terrain® traction control system, giving you five modes to tackle any condition, including snow. Traction is also enhanced through the available Quadra-Trac II® or Quadra-Drive® II 4WD systems. As well, the Quadra-Lift® air suspension system features five height settings for optimum ride performance.

The new, updated Uconnect® System for the 2014 models features a massive 8.4-inch touchscreen, Full-Feature Navigation, SiriusXM Travel Link / SiriusXM Traffic and HD Radio, plus:

  • HD Radio with AM/FM/Aux/Remote USB/SD
