2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee gets surprisingly comprehensive update, new diesel power

Traditionally, automotive journalists can be heard muttering something to the effect of "Geeze, it's about time!" whenever a vehicle's midcycle refresh is revealed. As we routinely see and drive new models many months before the public even claps eyes on them in showrooms – and then go on to tweeze apart their minutia in our daily writings – perhaps some impatience is to be expected.

Toledo Jeep liquidating 158 2.8L diesel engines, bid now!

Owners of Jeep Libertys equipped with the late 2.8L four cylinder turbo diesel engine may now have the chance to pick up a spare engine at what will likely be a rock bottom price. In fact, why stop at just one when there are 158 engines available at auction? That's right, the Jeep factory in Toledo, Ohio has got a surplus of unused engines just sitting on pallets collecting dust.

Jeep is advertising its new 2007 Compass as a fuel-efficient alternative to SUVs and is targeting non-traditional Jeep buyers. The 2007 Compass gets 30 mpg and will be driven by nothing but bobbleheads (at least, that's the world the commercials will portray). You can kind of feel the youth mark
