Jeep gets best-in-class mileage

by David Zatz on
Enthusiast and car salesman Dom Pike, of Guelph’s Wellington Motors, reported that Chrysler has posted Canadian fuel mileage figures for the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee — and that the gas mileage is “best in class.” The figures are:
Imperial mpg
US mpg
3-liter EcoDiesel 10.3 7.1 27/40 23/33 21/30
3.6 liter Pentastar 12.3 7.9 23/36 19/30 17/25
5.7 liter V8 15.6 9.9 18/29 15/24 15/21

Europe and Canada officially use liters per 100 kilometers as the fuel efficiency measure; this number goes down as efficiency rises, which is somewhat counter-intuitive, but many believe the number provides a more accurate “feel” of differences between vehicles and fuel usage. Figures are also provided in miles per gallon (mpg, or as TV commercials now say, “em-pee-gee”), but using Imperial gallons. We have converted to US-standard gallons for United States readers, and provided U.S. official figures as well — efforts by the government to increase accuracy of gas mileage figures can clearly be seen as the U.S. numbers are less optimistic, due to the inclusion of air conditioning and higher top speeds in the tests.
