During 2012, I'd have to say that one of the top questions in the automotive world was "When will Chrysler Group bring over a diesel Jeep?" Well, that was all unveiled at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show to many folks delight.

You asked for it and now you've got it.

The good news today is that the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee's FULL pricing information has leaked out thanks to Jeep forum AND it was updated to reflect the diesel's pricing premium over the standard sport-utility vehicles.

For the Limited and Overland models, the premium is $4,500. For the Summit, you're looking at a $5,000 premium to get the oil burner in your driveway.

So, how's that compare to the competition?

Well, quite good actually.

If you're cross shopping with the Audi Q7 TDI, that model commands a $5,200 difference over the standard 3.0-liter six cylder unit, meaning it's total base price is $52,000.

BMW's X5 xDrive35d, on the other hand costs a whopping $9,200 difference over the standard xDrive35i. The diesel's base price rings in at $56,700.

Mercedes-Benz's diesel ML350 BlueTEC not so surprisingly is only priced at a $4,000 premium over the standard M-Class. It's total base price is $51,270

And just in case you got a wee bit curious about the hybrid Lexus RX, it commands a $6,650 premium over the standard RX350. Total price = $46,310.

Using the Jeep 4X4 options, a diesel Limited will clock in at $42,995, a diesel Overland will command $50,495, and the Summit will cost you $55,995.

So, is the Jeep Grand Cherokee diesel a player when compared to the ML350 BlueTEC, Q7 TDI, X5 xDrive35d and Lexus RX450h?
