    Test driving the Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel

    I noticed last night on cars.com that several dealerships in my area have the Jeep Grand Cherokee diesels in stock now. Hoping I can get out next week to drive one. I'm excited to see this motor in person!

    I work for the railroad, and every time I go by the unloading facility, I look for the JGC diesels, and for Ram 1500 diesels....

    Keep in mind the Jeeps will have the 9 speed, the Ram will have the 8 speed.

    Jeeps have the 8. The new Cherokees (No grand) have the 9.

    The dealership next to the hotel that work puts me up showed a JGC with the 3.0 on their site. Unfortunately, the salesman said it is not there yet, because after showing him on the site, it doesn't have a stock number.

    I drove one this week. Turbo lag is noticeable but I could squeal tires with the torque. Looked under the hood, it sure is a small engine. Overall I love it. Very smooth engine and very smooth shifting. I did not tow but drove up a real steep hill -- she pulled hard all the way to the top.

    Correct, the new Cherokee has the 9 speed, the GC and Ram have the 8 speed.
