duction of a 3.0-litre diesel V6 that will make more torque and gulp much less fuel than the Hemi, an eight-speed automatic for those two engines plus the base V6 which will increase both performance and efficiency, and the latest generation of Uconnect with bigger screen and modern features. Out on the road, it is evident that this Jeep is no crossover based on front-drive architecture, as it is not what you would call nimble. For more on-road but less off-road capability, there is the SRT8. But it need make no excuses for this; it is what it is, and that is a big, relatively fast, very capable and luxurious SUV that happens to be a good value within that segment. Personally, we would wait for the 2014 diesel, but the 2013 Hemi is a good performer if you can afford the frequent fill-ups.
