TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - MIAS 2014: Jeep launches all-out assault with diesel Grand Cher

Jeep is storming the 2014 Manila International Auto Show with a fuel-efficient diesel model, a high-performance variant, and an update of a classic.

Leading the pack is the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 Grand Cherokee Limited that produces 249hp and 550Nm, and promises a best-in-class fuel mileage of 12.754km/L to go with its 1,175km driving range. Helping achieve this impressive fuel economy is a new eight-speed automatic transmission--the same one used by the 283hp 3.6-liter V6 in the Grand Cherokee Summit, and the high-performance Grand Cherokee SRT with a 470hp 6.4-liter Hemi V8 and Fuel Saver Technology under the hood.

And then there’s the Wrangler Unlimited. Building on the heritage of the popular military vehicle of the 1940s, the vehicle's boxy design, tough stance, seven-slot grille and off-road capability contribute to its continuing appeal to customers worldwide. Helping the Wrangler Unlimited go where no other vehicle would dare visit is a 177hp 2.8-liter diesel engine.

Jeep's latest offerings can be seen at the 2014 Manila International Auto Show this weekend at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
