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!
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.
