"With 420 lb-ft of torque on tap, the Grand feels great around town, effortlessly launching off the limit lines and providing plenty of punch down low. Once underway, the Grand is quiet and poised as the EcoDiesel loafs along, feeling right at home between 65 and 85 mph."
"The torque is great fun; it provides instant punch for day-to-day dicing in traffic. Mind you, it peaks at 2000 rpm and the redline is 4800, but the high number of forward gears means you’ll almost never find yourself wanting for more muscle."
CAR AND DRIVER
"Driving the EcoDiesel equipped Grand Cherokee isn't much different than driving the HEMI model. Both have a comfortable ride, quiet cabin and plenty of power. The one exception is full throttle acceleration from 0 to 30 mph. The diesel's torque provides instant punch and gets there first, with the sound of fury and a feeling of authority."
