Jeep has unveiled their updated European lineup, which will debut at the Paris Motor Show.
While most models benefit from the same upgrades as the US versions, a new 2.8-liter turbo-diesel engine will be offered in the Grand Cherokee, Wrangler, and Cherokee (aka Liberty). It produces 200 PS (147 kW / 197 hp) and up to 460 Nm (339 lb-ft) of torque.
Besides the new engine, the Wrangler gets stop/start technology (manual model only) and an optional five-speed automatic. Thanks to these changes, fuel economy climbs 13 percent and CO2 emissions fall 14 percent.
The Cherokee gains a new multi-media system, revised color choices, and better interior upholstery. More importantly, there is a Jet Edition with bright exterior trim (on the lower fascia, body-side molding, roof rails and license plate brow), chrome mirror housings, blacked-out headlamps, and polished 18-inch wheels. Inside, the special edition has a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power windows and a nine-speaker Infinity sound system.
In the Patriot and Compass, a new 2.2-liter turbo diesel engine replaces the 2.0-liter unit. It produces 163 hp PS (120 kW / 161 hp) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque.
