The Jeep Cherokee will, according to IndianAutoBlog, be build with a diesel version for Europe, using Fiat’s 2.0 liter MultiJet engine. This powerplant, also used in the Fiat Freemont, has been widely praised; IAB called the 1.3 liter version the “national engine of India” because it is used in over a dozen popular models of different brands.  The 2.0 liter version to be used in the Cherokee is available with either 138 or 168 horsepower. IAB believes diesel Cherokees will also be available in India, though no specific announcement has been made yet. The Wrangler and Jeep Grand Cherokee are to be launched this year in India; Wrangler may lead to some buyer confusion, given its resemblance to Mahindra models which have the same ancestry (but have arguably conformed to it more closely). The Cherokee is expected to be imported to China late in 2013; Jeep CEO Mike Manley..

This differs slightly from the DOJ? Info, where the bell housing can accept a 1.8 diesel, or maybe the list had a typo?
Does anyone know if the Fiat bolt patterns are universal and interchangeable?

No, 1.8 is a gas engine.

So, Europe gets 2.0 diesel, 1.4 gas and (maybe) 1.8 gas. China gets only 1.4 gas.

EU will get 2.0 diesel either 140hp or 170hp and V6.
No 1.4, 1.8 or 2.4 petrols for EU countries at least from the beginning.

Now that the Europeans have decided to join the civilized world, and finally enter the world of toxic emission controls, it makes the smog controlled diesels cheaper to be upgraded to meet US T2B5 standards, by spreading the cost over larger volumes of engines.

Maybe in a decade or so, visitors to Europe won't see so many architectural monuments closed, as they have to scrape off the soot from millions of pollution spewing diesel cars.

I'm sure that we will see more diesels appear in NAFTA cars, as these improved and genuinely cleaner Euro diesels proliferate.

Ehm actually in Europe diesels are cleaner than gas engines.

That is merely because the toxic emissions regulations are so primitive for both Euro ICE and Euro diesels. Plus, Only recently has PM10 and PM 2.5 become of concern to health authorities. VOCS are more of a problem for ICEs, as ICE fuels are more volatile than diesel fuels when you don't have evaporative controls.

Thanks, that is what I thought. The engines listed are all compatible with the 9 speed bell, 1.4, 1.8 2.0 .

I stick to official figures, using comparable engines in terms of power diesels are at least on par with gas engines and often cleaner.

Check for instance: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/ford/focus/hatchback/variants#variants.

Norm, are you sure you didn't see the 1.6 diesel for Europe as well? Would seem like a natural fit for the 2wd, especially considering the competition offers something similar too.

The list I have is, 1.4 gas, 1.8 gas, 2.0 diesel. It's over a year old, but the 1.6 was not listed. However if it shares the bolt pattern, it could be used.

Actually car emissions had very little to do with the soot and other atmospheric damage that needs/is being removed form buildings in Europe. The vast, vast majority of it was caused by soot deposition the burning of coal for heat electricity and industrial activity prior to the 1970s and 80s.

Similar damage can be seen on older buildings in cities like new york, montreal and toronto. And it should be noted, many types of building materials used back in the day stain from non-man generated sources simply because of their porous nature.
