As result of the collaboration with Fiat Powertrain Technologies the engine features the Multijet2 technology for improved performance, fuel economy and NVH. The first applications of the 3.0L V6 are the 2011MY Grand Cherokee and the 2012MY Lancia Thema.
You are the retarded one. You can't even buy a diesel Jeep in this country with that engine in it, yet. The 2014 Grand Cherokee will come with the VM 3.0 V6 but it has never been offered before. In 07 and 08 they sold the Grand Cherokee with a Mercedes 3.0 V6 diesel in the US.

At the end of the day I'd have a 30 + mpg ski (4x4) car with leather (heated) seats, sunroof, kicking stereo and 7,000 lb towing for under 14k.
The tow rating is 5000 pounds. It's not worth $10k, maybe 8k.
