Jeep Australia has announced a new promotion to run throughout this month, offering cut-price diesel upgrades for its Grand Cherokee 4WD customers.
Called the “$1000 Diesel” offer, the promotion offers customers the chance to upgrade to a turbo-diesel engine for $1000 (as the name suggests), representing a saving of up to $6000 over the regular price.
For the extra grand, the SUV picks up the diesel’s greater torque and improved fuel economy over the equivalent petrol variants along with a 3500kg maximum tow rating (1000kg more than the petrol V6).
Jeep’s Grand Cherokee diesel engine is a 3.0 litre turbocharged V6 unit with power and torque figures of 184kW and 570Nm. Fuel consumption is rated at 7.5 l/100km.
Furthermore, the diesel unit has been tweaked by Jeep engineers for 2016, and now features an improved torque response from the throttle along with smoother operation.
The promotion applies to Jeep’s 3.6 litre V6 petrol-powered Laredo, Blackhawk, Limited and Overland Grand Cherokee variants, but excludes V8-powered models.
The $1000 diesel offer is available until March 31.
In a separate promotion, Jeep is also offering customers who test drive a new Grand Cherokee the chance to win a block of land in Australia (winner's choice) to the value of $100,000. The second promotion runs throughout March and April.
