Yes, the headline is correct - it's just not in the United States. According to Jalopnik.com, a European company recently took a stock Commander CRD and tuned it up a bit:

If there’s a European Chrysler to mess with, you know Brabus’s Startech geeks will show up with slide-rule in hand. This time, they’ve set upon the Jeep Commander CRD, creating an add-on performance processor, the SD6, which — along with a stainless-steel sport exhaust — boosts horsepower to 262 (from 218) and torque to 427 ft.-lbs (from 376).

I saw this tuned Commander and blue Compass w/ the missing rear bumper on Flickr shortly before seeing 'em here. Couldn't help but wonder whether or not this was a coincidence.

But the article doesn't say how fuel economy is affected by the change. I plan on purchasing a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Diesel when they become available, and so might be interested in such a tuning, provided fuel economy is not reduced. I also plan on switching to Toyo Proxes S/T tires with the V speed rating.

Personally, I am not fond of their lower bumper treatment. I also think they need some bigger tires.

Thanks for the tease, Mike. It is a continual reminder of just how third world North America has become. The remainder of world gets high performance diesels, because they had the foresight to pursue ULSD, and we find ourselves with the grocery-getter and minivan-powered versions of Jeeps.
