Grand CherokeeFirst Review of 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee CRD
Posted by Anonymous on 2007/1/26 10:10:56 (1958) reads has the first test drive of the all-new Grand Cherokee SRC - and they have some nice things to say about it:

If you like diesels, you'll love the Grand Cherokee 3.0 CRD. Especially if you're looking for a daily driver that's capable of being 'wheeled comfortably. If you're new to diesels but are attracted to the combination of performance and fuel economy in a good-sized SUV, you have nothing to fear. This is a diesel with manners and refinement on a level that can only come from a connection with Mercedes. One major disappointment is that, due to stricter diesel emissions standards, 3.0 CRD option is available for purchase in only 45 states. Not included are Maine, New York, Vermont, Connecticut, and California. A future Bluetec version could change that.

For everyone that was skeptical about the using the Nitro's 255HP/275ft-lbs aluminum block in the JK...

...Is everyone aware that the adored 3.0L TD Bluetec has an aluminum block & head, too?

Don't diesels last longer because they don't burn as hot as gassers? From what I understand that seems like it would offset aluminum engines not being as durable. The 4.0l V6 would solve peoples complaints about the JKL being gutless though. I'm not one to argue with 275 LbsFeet

Any issues if I purchase this in another state, and then bring it to California?

My guess--and it is only that--is that you won't be able to license it in CA. Check with your DMV or BMV, though.
