FARMINGTON HILLS, MI--Jan. 24, 2013:  Bosch, a leading global technology supplier, announced its clean diesel technology will be featured in the new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which debuted January 14 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The vehicle's new 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 is equipped with a Bosch Common Rail Diesel Fuel Injection System, which accommodates the engine's MultiJet II technology.

MultiJet II's Bosch-made injectors can manage up to eight highly precise injections per combustion event. Bosch also supplies the system's high-pressure pump, sensors and engine control unit in addition to the vehicle's emission system, which includes the diesel particulate filter and selective catalytic reduction system.

"Jeep's announcement marks an important milestone as this iconic brand will help make clean diesel more popular in the North American market," said Bernd Boisten, regional president, Diesel Systems North America, Robert Bosch LLC. "The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee features a Bosch emission system compliant with the most stringent emission regulations in the world. From fuel tank to tailpipe, Bosch is pleased to equip this vehicle with top technologies to give consumers a great driving experience requiring fewer stops at the pump."

The clean diesel emission system for the Jeep Grand Cherokee will be assembled at Bosch's facility in Kentwood, Mich.  As a result of this project and other targeted projects, the Bosch Emission Systems operation in Kentwood intends to secure 100 high-tech jobs by the end of 2014.   

This announcement points to a growing number of vehicle manufacturers that have adopted clean diesel as a leading technology providing fuel efficiency, performance and reduced emissions. According to Bosch, there will be 54 clean diesel vehicles available in the U.S. by 2017, which demonstrates the increase in popularity among consumers and manufacturers alike.
