The K&N reusable air filter for 2011-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 models with a 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine is built with 2 extra layers, totaling 6, of our tight weave cotton gauze
The fourth generation 2011-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, referred to as the WK2 in some circles, can be equipped with an optional 3.0-liter turbocharged EcoDiesel V6. The common rail diesel (CRD) V6 engine is produced by VM Motori Cento in Ferrara, Italy and produces horsepower and torque numbers that rival the optional 5.7-liter V8 engine equipped WK2 Grand Cherokee models. Where the diesel Grand Cherokee outshines its V8 powered brethren is in miles per gallon and increased fuel range.
Owners of 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee models can now equip their EcoDiesel powered SUV with a replacement diesel air filter from the authority in washable air filters, K&N. This reusable air filter is designed to fit into the stock air filter box of 2011-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0L V6 turbo diesel models without any need for modifications. K&N replacement air filters are made with specially woven cotton gauze. Because cotton, by nature, is more breathable than paper, a K&N replacement diesel air filter can flow more air than a typical paper air filter. More air can result in increased performance and better acceleration.
Filtration efficiency test results, following the ISO 5011 protocol with ISO coarse test dust, show that the 2011-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0L diesel air filter is 99.28% efficient overall
It would be false to assume that an increase in airflow with a K&N diesel air filter comes at the expense of filtration efficiency and engine protection. K&N engineers place filtration efficiency and dirt retention as a priority when developing a diesel air filter. This diesel air filter uses design elements that go above and beyond our standard automotive air filters. K&N knows that a Jeep Grand Cherokee diesel could be subjected to some of the most extreme conditions on the planet. This is why K&N used two extra layers, totaling six, of our special tight weave cotton gauze sandwiched between wire mesh to form extra deep 1-1/4” pleats. Six layers of 1-1/4” deep pleated cotton filter media allows diesel air filter, number 33-3029, to outflow the stock air filter, hold a lot of dirt for long service intervals, and offer 99.28% overall filtration efficiency.
K&N performs filtration efficiency testing following the ISO 5011 protocol with ISO coarse test dust to guarantee that our air filters will provide high airflow without sacrificing engine protection. Calling this test dust coarse is almost absurd, as 22% of the dust is rated at 10 microns or less. To provide perspective, a human blood cell is typically between 6 and 8 microns across. Detailed filtration test results for diesel air filter 33-3029 are available for viewing.
Perhaps more exciting than the increased performance that comes with a K&N replacement diesel air filter is the fact that they are also a washable and reusable air filter. The ability to wash and reuse a K&N air filter means that it will pay for itself over time. The K&N diesel air filter for 2011-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel models can be washed and made like new using one of the K&N Recharger air filter service kits. Recharger kit 99-5000, includes 12 fluid ounces of air filter cleaner and a 6.5 ounce aerosol bottle of air filter oil for quick and easy application. Recharger kit 99-5050, differs in that it includes an 8 ounce squeeze bottle of K&N filter oil for a more precise application.
