Another example is the Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel - which came from Mercedes even after they sold their shares in Chrysler. It had probably been planned before the sale, but they didn't cancel even though it means they strengthen a competitor.

Sadly I think this engine is on Chyrsler's block to be discontinued.
Then: '79 Plymouth Horizon, '88 VW Fox Wagon, '92 VW Jetta GL (DW), '96 VW Golf GL (DW), '97 Jetta GLX - Green, '03 MPV ES - Blue Mica (DW); '15 Hyundai Elantra GT - Titanium Gray Metallic (DW)
Now: '18 Hyundai Tucson - Silver (DW), '10 Honda Civic Si - Polished Metal Metallic blake

It would be sad if Chrysler killed the jeep diesel, apparently in Canada it makes up 70% of their Grand Cherokee sales. All the power (torque) of the V8 with the fuel consumption of the V6.

The article below talks about the 2010 Grand Cherokee and it has small mention that the diesel was quietly discontinued for '09. They weren't clear which market. And they did mention that it could reemerge in the future. But this was before the bottom fell out. Who knows, we may have Fiat back on our shores soon (Chrysler and Fiat are in talks)
