The Jeep Liberty CRD makes an appearance on the official Jeep Web site.
The official Jeep site is now showcasing the much-discussed diesel Jeep Liberty - check it out here. Some snippets from the text:
How did we make Jeep Liberty more capable than ever? Three letters: CRD.If you are interested in learning more about the diesel Liberty, be sure to "Register for Updates" on the Jeep Web site. for
CRD stands for Common Rail Diesel - an all-new, second-generation diesel engine that can be found at the heart of the Jeep Liberty CRD, available later this year. Forget everything you remember about the diesels of old.
The all-new 2.8L turbocharged Liberty CRD produces the kind of down-low pulling power that's perfect for hauling, towing, passing and keeping out of trouble.
As the first diesel-powered, mid-size SUV available in North America, Liberty CRD is blazing a new trail so you can go further off road between fill-ups.
Thanks to modern advancements in engine technology, including Multi-Pilot Direct Injection, dual overhead camshafts and gear-driven balance shafts, Liberty CRD runs as smoothly as a conventional gasoline engine.

DC is only going to make 5,000 for the US market. There is no reference anywhere as to what the price is going to be for the diesel version. I also agree that not having a manual transmission is missing the point as to why people are going to buy this SUV - fuel economy and towing power. I think a lot of people in the US ignore diesel engines - they don't want their home smelling like the bus station :-)
Here is a link for the Edmunds discussion group for the Jeep Liberty Diesel - has many comments from Europe about their experiences with it. Engine is made in Italy for Detriot Diesel.
