Having just driven the new Jeep Cherokee I am greatly excited by this mornings news that Jeep Australia is adding the Jeep Cherokee Limited Diesel to the impressive Jeep Cherokee range, the 2.0L turbo diesel packing 125kW and 350Nm featuring stop start technology is claimed to have a low 5.8L/100km fuel economy rating.

Being as I am so diesel friendly I’m looking forward to driving the diesel Cherokee in the future, also check in the next week for my review of the Jeep Cherokee Longitude and while your waiting for that check out the full details of the Jeep Cherokee Limited Diesel below from Jeep .

  • Efficient nine-speed automatic transmission – a first in the mid-size SUV segment
  • Equipped with Jeep’s next-stage off-road technology: Active Drive II 4WD with low range

  • Class-leading towing capacity: braked trailer limit of 2393kg
  • Available only in luxurious Limited trim level and priced at just $49,000 (MSRP)

The all-new Jeep Cherokee line-up has been further strengthened by the arrival of the new Limited Diesel, with its 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine and nine-speed automatic transmission offering impressive fuel economy without compromising on power.

The Limited Diesel completes the already-impressive Cherokee line-up, which is also offered in Sport guise, with its 2.4-litre petrol engine, and the Longitude, Limited and Trailhawk trim levels – all offered with Jeep’s award-winning 3.2-litre Pentastar V6.

Jeep’s 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine delivers 125kW and 350Nm and is equipped with Stop/Start technology that helps keep fuel consumption to an impressive 5.8-litres per hundred kilometres.

The new Jeep Cherokee Limited Diesel also features one of Jeep’s most advanced off-road systems, Active Drive II, which features a two-speed power transfer unit with torque management and low range unique to the diesel powertrain.

The Limited Diesel also features 18-inch aluminum wheels, leather upholstery with heated front seats, Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen with navigation, front and rear parking sensors with reversing camera and an Alpine nine-speaker surround sound system all as standard.

Standard safety features include seven airbags (front seats multistage air bags, side bags, window bags, driver side knee air bag), ESC (Electronic Stability Control) with ERM (rollover mitigation) and ABS (anti-lock brake system) with both on-road and off-road calibration.

To ensure maximum protection, additional safety feature options for the new Jeep Cherokee include new systems  such as the innovative Forward Collision Warning-Plus, ParkSense Parallel/Perpendicular Park Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control-Plus, Lane Departure Warning-Plus, Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection.
Maximising safety and security with the development of the new Cherokee allowed the mid-size SUV to earn an ANCAP five-star rating. The new Cherokee also earned the ‘best in class’ designation from Euro NCAP in the Small Off-road 4X4 category for the year 2013.

This vehicle is also the first mid-size SUV to feature rear axle disconnect, resulting in reduced friction and energy loss when 4×4 capability isn’t needed and ensuring improved fuel efficiency.
