The fact that Chrysler’s Jeep division has announced reintroduction of a turbocharged V6 diesel engine to the Grand Cherokee’s option list for the 2014 model year didn’t come as a huge surprise to fyidriving.com. A similar high-torque fuel saver was briefly available in previous-generation Grand Cherokees but was dropped due to its failure to meet various states’ environmental regs. The upcoming version has received a clean bill of health. But the other big noise in Jeep land is the replacement of the continuously variable transmission (CVT) in next year’s Patriot and Compass with a new six-speed automatic. In a world where the use of CVTs is rapidly expanding, fyidriving.com is downright intrigued to hear that Chrysler is abandoning these units and fearlessly predicts an uptick in Jeep Patriot/Compass sales as a result. Why? Many four-cylinder CVT-equipped cars make very strange sounds.
