From SRT 8 to Diesel, both great.

2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4dr SUV 4WD (5.7L 8cyl 5A)
2006 SRT8 marked our return to Jeep. We found it a blast to drive and were completely satisfied with all aspects of the car. It was trouble free and was reluctantly traded for the 2007 Overland diesel. We ran that car continuously for a little over a year , with oil and filter changes the only work required. After 40,000 trouble free miles we traded for 2008 Overland diesel to avail ourselves of the last great meld of German engine and the best of Detroit. We could not be more satisfied, the 2008 is more refined than the 2007 with the feature list expanded and perfected. The reliability and build integrity is something we have remarked from the 2006 SRT to today's Overland. Love it!
The strong styling without the cute ostentation found in many of the current crop of competitors. Reliability underscores each feature.
A six or seven speed automatic which will not happen as the MB diesel is no longer offered in the Jeep line.
