If it's the New York Auto Show, it must be time for new Jeeps. For some odd reason the 'merican side of the German-American hybrid has found New York's the place to show off their new rock-crawlers — last year showing off the new Jeep Patriot and the four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. This year the boys n' girls from Stuttgart Auburn Hills have so far unveiled the new 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee. And let's just say — it's amazingly similar to the old one. Except for like, one big difference. This year, the GC is going diesel and it's going low-end on the V8. That's right, the news on the Grand is the addition of the 3.0-liter common rail diesel V6 engine available on the Limited and the Overland and the addition of an all-new 4.7-literV8 engine which becomes the new standard on the Jeep Grand Cherokee limited. We're just happy to hear the SRT8 still gets the 6.1-liter HEMI. Everything else is really just butter. Full press release after the jump.
