TheAutoChannel.com has a nice article about how Chrysler Group sales are outstanding overseas. From the article:

Chrysler Group's sales success outside North America continued in October with monthly sales increasing 20 percent (total of 17,393 units) and marking 17 consecutive months of year-over-year sales gains. The positive results in October follow the best September ever for Chrysler Group sales outside of North America.

All of the regions achieved sales improvements for the month, with Chrysler Group's largest volume region, Western and Central Europe, increasing sales by 22 percent. For four consecutive months, June through September, the Chrysler Group has been the fastest growing automotive brand family in Western Europe.

...snip...

All three of the Company's brands are represented by top-selling vehicles for the month of October. The Jeep Grand Cherokee (3,329 units) was the highest volume vehicle this month, followed by Chrysler Voyager, Chrysler 300C, Jeep Cherokee and Dodge Caliber. "We are pleased by the sales performance of the current portfolio, but realize that the competition is not going to get any easier. We still have several products that will launch soon and help to sustain our growth in the global market," said Hausch.

And what percentage of all these overseas sales are Diesels? Coincidence? Maybe not.


Sorry haven't bitched about wanting a diesel for a while so I hijacked this thread. :)

Yup was going to say the same thing. A couple sites (overseas ) had a review of the crd wrangler. It got 24-29 MPG! I have to be careful about the 29 mpg figure since I'm not sure if it was in imperal gallons or in US gallons. But 24 MPG is damn good considering that your moving a porker of a vehicle and the gas version struggles to get 19.

I'd love to know what those sites are for the mileage ratings on the diesel.
Even if they were English miles, that would translate into 20 mpg city and 24 mpg Highway US.
Here is a general review from Yahoo UK.
http://uk.cars.yahoo.com/09112006/45/jeep-wrangler-crd-unlimited-auto-15.html
It indicates the UK version gets the 2.8L CRD. It's ironic that it's a left hand drive model.
Jeep expects 99% of it's sales to be the diesel!

YO! How about us in the USA!
