Goodbye VW, Hello Mercedes: Engine Switch For European Jeep Patriot Diesel
November 29, 2010
By Michael Febbo

If you're going to make it in Europe as a U.S. brand, then you had better have a viable diesel powertrain strategy, as diesel-powered vehicles account for roughly 40 percent of European market. So as Chrysler continues to press the Jeep brand into Europe, it's decided to upgrade the diesel units in its European market Jeep Patriot.

Beginning next year, Jeep will be switching to a Mercedes-sourced, more efficient 2.2-liter common rail turbocharged inline four-cylinder diesel engine making 163-horsepower. On the outs is a VW-derived turbocharged 2.0-liter 140-horsepower inline four-cylinder diesel.

The updated Patriot will come in four trim levels; Sport, Sport+, Limited and Overland, each with increasing levels of luxury equipment. All four models will have an increased top speed of 125 mph with the Mercedes engine, compared to 117 mph with the Volkswagen engine. Also improved is the Patriotís 0-60 mph time which now stops the clocks at a relatively pedestrian 10.7 seconds.

Jeep hasnít announced a diesel version of the Patriot for the U.S. market and we donít know how likely it is given most manufacturers interest in hybrid technology. The Mercedes 2.2-liter CRD is not currently offered in any other vehicles in the U.S., so it would probably need to make its way into other platforms to justify the expense of federalization. Until then, only the Europeans will be able to enjoy a Patriot rated at a combined 42.8 mpg in the European cycle.
