Jeep model offensive in Paris with four premieres

New, powerful Jeep diesel engines
Subscriptions & booklets

U m jeep in Germany it was pretty quiet. Waiting for the model change to the fourth Grand Cherokee generation, otherwise there was a break in transmission. But now the legendary brand is making a comeback: The Paris Motor Show is being used to present four premieres. Particularly important for the European market: the diesel engines were revised or replaced. In addition to the more powerful Cherokee and Wrangler, the new Jeep Patriot with Mercedes diesel should bring increasing sales figures.

The Jeep Patriot 2.2 CRD has 23 hp more

In the case of the compact SUV, currently celebrating sales records, Jeep had the last to lose with the Patriot. That could change now, as will be seen at the Paris Motor Show. Because instead of the pump-nozzle unit bought at VW and long since retired there is now a four-cylinder from Mercedes under the hood. The 2.2-liter common rail not only increases driving comfort thanks to the lower noise level. The new diesel also provides significantly increased driving pleasure. With 163 hp and 320 Newton meters (predecessor: 140 hp, 310 Nm), the Patriot now storms from zero to 100 km /h in 9.7 seconds (previously: 11.0 s), the top speed improves by 13 to 202 km /h . The standard consumption remains the same: 6.6 liters despite the increased performance. This means that the Patriot between Tiguan, Freelander and Co. is competitive again. As a bonus, the trailer load also increases significantly, instead of the previous 1.6 tonnes, the Jeep Patriot 2.2 CRD can hook a full two tonnes.

A facelift for the Jeep Patriot will follow in 2011

In Paris, the Jeep Patriot has a new engine and an old dress, while in the USA the facelift version will start selling in the fall. The exterior of the Patriot of the 2011 vintage is only moderately modernized, but technically revised. A newly tuned chassis with different spring /damper combinations and a stronger stabilizer should improve road holding and driving comfort. As with the 2011 Jeep Wrangler, the interior is being thoroughly modernized, upgraded with better materials and a more elegant feel. Here, too, the new standard steering wheel moves in, along with the new Jeep entertainment system (see photo show).

More power for the well-known 2.8 CRD in Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Cherokee

In the case of the Wrangler, the new diesels are in the current facelift model, which has been thoroughly revised, especially inside and in the equipment options. Jeep is also presenting a new 'Black Edition' special version of the Jeep Cherokee with the new diesel at the exhibition stand in Paris.

European premiere for the Jeep Grand Cherokee 2011

Still without diesel The fourth generation of the Jeep Grand Cherokee is on show for the first time in Europe at the Paris Motor Show. The luxury off-roader equipped with Mercedes ML technology will go on sale with us in the fall, but initially only as a gasoline engine. The new V6 petrol engine and the legendary 5.7-liter Hemi V8 are used. Market launch for the Jeep Grand Cherokee CRD with the new six-cylinder diesel is only available in early 2011.
