The German catalog says the towing capacity for 170 HP Diesel is 2475 kg (5445 lbs)

Before I tell You one more thing, You should sit down:

Fuel consumption is 40% less than the pentastar.

I don`t understand US marker which rejects diesel technology. Being from Canada, I am suffering from this US rejection of Diesel motors. Our Canadian marker is too small to have diesel alone without US.

So, Please request this technology to your dealer and to Jeep American.

Yeah, the Diesel engine is a nice thing, but not for everyone. If you drive most short distances or stop and go in the city, a gas engine is the better choice. Under this conditions, the exhaust-filter cleaning-cycle could not be done properly. The result is a plugged filter, which has to be replaced for a lot of money.

Agreed, if you drive short distances and not any real highway miles a gas block makes more sense. I had a '75 MB 300D and a '79 Audi 5000 diesel which I ran around 50k miles a year on each, back in the slow diesel days.
Question I have is are these urea/BlueTec technology or another high-burn like the Vdubs in the Patriots? If it is urea that is another cost to consider.
I'm waiting for the first US jeep diesel for my next ride.

Fiat diesel engines does not use BlueTec technology. They burn regular diesel fuel for cleaning the filter. I don´t know, if this is cheaper, but it´s easier to handle. Just fill in diesel and go.

Hi,
I´m from Germany. (Sorry about my bad english, my german is even better )
We love the diesel engines here in Germany.
The fuel consuption is much better than the gas engine, and by the way
the liter of diesel fuel is about 20(!) cents cheaper than gas.
I could NEVER imagine buying a SUV with a gas engine!
And that´s the Problem:
The Trailhawk is NOT available with a diesel engine in europe!!!
And I like the Trailhawk much more than the others...besides...no liftkits available to put bigger tyres on the car...

greetings
Holger
