Top ten again for Fiat Chrysler V6 diesel engine

3.0 liter EcoDiesel V-6For the third consecutive year, the Fiat Chrysler 3-litre V6 turbodiesel engine has been voted one of the World’s top ten engines

It is also the second year; in which it is the only diesel engine in the annual list produced by automotive data and testing company WardsAuto World.

“The 3-litre from Fiat Chrysler was one of three types of diesel we tested this year for Wards 10 Best Engines, and we expected a tough fight among them all,” said WardsAuto World executive editor Tom Murphy.

“The FCA V6 proved superior and continued to impress us with ideal measures of power, torque, refinement and luxury-car smoothness,” says Murphy.

In New Zealand, the 3-litre V6 turbodiesel engine is available in three grade variants of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, where it offers a combination of low fuel consumption and high performance says the local distributor.

The 184kW/550Nm 3-litre V6 turbodiesel enables the Jeep Grand Cherokee to deliver fuel consumption on the combined test cycle of 7.5 l/100 km, dropping to 6.5 l/100 km on the open road test programme.

It can also tow 3.5 tonnes with a braked trailer, and without a trailer, the diesel-powered Grand Cherokee can cover the dash from zero to 100 kph in 8.2 seconds.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee 3-litre V6 turbodiesel is available in three models:

  • Laredo from $78,990 plus on-road costs
  • Limited from $89,990 plus on-road costs
  • Overland from $103,490 plus on-road costs
