I believe that difference between these two is huge. The CRD is actually a Mercedes engine and is really excellent, the CRD Jeep G Cheroke was review in a 4x4 magazine a few months and it thrashed the opposition. It was a landrover magazine and even they said it was better than the disco (though not the new one). On the other hand a friend mine had one with the American turbo diesel, he was so disappointed with it that he took it back to the dealer and swapped it for the V8 petrol, the CRD was not available at that time.

You need the CRD. It transforms the vehicle.
