Maybe need to clarify the diesel engine point. Not sure what 2.0 for international markets the article refers to.Allpar News System said:
According to observations of its interior, the 2014 Jeep Cherokee (Jeep Liberty replacement) will have both a parking assistance system and a two-speed 4x4 system, put into low gear using a traditional lever. This would be the first parking assistance system ever used in a Chrysler Group vehicle. The 2014 Cherokee will be equipped with the new 3.2-liter V6, a high-efficiency version of the familiar Pentastar 3.6 engine, paired with a ZF nine-speed automatic transmission made either by ZF itself or by Chrysler. Export “Liberkees” will get the same 2-liter, four-cylinder diesel used in international markets now, possibly due to a long-term supply contract. For more information, discussion of the four wheel drive system, and up to date renderings, see our 2014 Jeep Cherokee page or this forums discussion.

In Europe Cherokee (Liberty) uses the VM 2.8 L4 and the Compass uses a 2.2 L4 which I believe is Mercedes-sourced.
The only 2.0 diesel currently used by Chrysler in North America is the Fiat 1.9 JTD fitted onto the Fiat Freemont (the rebadged Dodge Journey for export to Europe).
My guess is that the latter is the engine that we'll see on the '14 Cherokee (or at least its newer iteration)
