As part of our constant quest to bring you the latest and greatest on all things diesel, we travelled across the hall to see what our friends over at Motor Trend had their hands on. On their latest bi-weekly episode of Head 2 Head on the Motor Trend YouTube channel, MT’s Jonny Lieberman puts the 2013 Volkswagen Touareg TDI up against a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit 4x4 Ecodiesel.
Jonny runs the diesels all over the Hungry Valley State Vehicular Recreation Area in Southern California with the film crew in tow, examining everything from their off-road capability to interior luxuries. He also offers his insight on why more manufacturers should adopt diesel technology (we couldn’t agree more). Which one of the new diesel powered SUVs did Motor Trend dub the better bang for the buck? Click on the video to find out!
