Jeep Grand Cherokee Remains Jeep's Flagship
Despite the coming of new Jeep models, the Grand Cherokee has remained to be the flagship for the Jeep line which has been expanding in the past few years. Jeep is offering more models now than it did 65 years ago.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is still a mid-size, four-door, five-passenger SUV with a two-piece tailgate. It is offered in three four wheel drive systems: the Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II and the Quadra-Drive II which boost Grand Cherokee's off-road capabilities with items such as the electronic limited slip differentials.
The edge of the Grand Cherokee over its rivals is not only its top-of-the-line Jeep Cherokee parts but more of its impressive off-road prowess which is unparalleled in the SUV segment. The Cherokee has the highest percentage of off-road use among SUVs although some Jeep enthusiasts think that the iconic Wrangler is the best when it comes to off-roading.
The grand Cherokee is also remarkable when it comes to highway or freeway driving. Its new engine, trim level choices and driveline has made it into the versatile vehicle that it is today. The retail price of the Grand Cherokee ranges from $27,665 to $42,690 and offered in four variants: the Laredo, Limited, Overland, and the hot rod SRT8. All these variants have four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes and traction/anti-skid control with rollover sensors. They are also fully equipped and loaded with numerous option packages.
The new 2007 Grand Cherokee gets a new upgrade in terms of its interior and exterior trims plus it also gets the optional new Mercedes-Benz turbocharged diesel V-6. Its diesel engine revs up 215 horsepower and a potent 376 lb-ft of torque perfect for heavy towing. But the best thing about the Grand Cherokee is its fuel economy which only reaches 18 mpg for city driving and 24 mpg for highway driving.
Other improvements made on the Grand Cherokee includes the addition of curtain-side air bags with rollover deployment and flex-fuel capability for the 4.7 liter V8, which enables it to run on 85 percent ethanol (E85) and in the process reduced emission of harmful C02. Remote start is made standard for the Limited and Overland but offered as an option on the Laredo. The rearview camera is optional for all variants.
