You've heard the expression: “If it isn't broken, why fix it?” That statement could be the motto of the new Jeep Grand Cherokee, the flagship of the proud Jeep family, as it just stays the course. Recently the trustworthy organization Consumer Reports did a huge survey of vehicle owners on how they rated their modes of transportation in the area of owner satisfaction.
It was no surprise that the “Grand” ranked high in comfort, styling and driving. But don't take anyone's word for it and just do your own due diligence with an up close and personal inspection of the Jeep Grand Cherokee with the friendly folks at Greenville Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM located at 5401 Interstate Highway 30 in Greenville, Texas or by calling the dealership at 903.454.0283 and take your expectations for a drive. Easy as that.
You and yours will discover that the Grand has a compliant controlled ride, comfy seats and an upscale interior. All of which endows it with a premium substantial feel and a joy to drive and especially to be seen in. Moreover, the Grand Cherokee continues to be rugged with off the beaten path capabilities and yet can be a very civilized five passenger family hauler.
The model lineup spans from a rather basic vehicle to absolutely “Bonkers” with the Trackhawk that is just made for those who can't get enough ponies under their handsome hood. The base engine is a lively 3.6-liter V6 that delivers 295 horses and 260 lb-ft of “get up and go” torque. It is mated with a smooth shifting 8-speed automatic that comes with all Grand Cherokees. The Limited, Overland, Trailhawk and Summit trims are available with other engines.
The 3.0-liter Turbo Diesel V6 punches out 240 horses and an awesome 420 lb-ft of torque which is enough to tow 7,000 lbs. Another choice is the 5.7-liter V8 that releases 360 horses and comes in AWD only. Moving up in more horsepower is the SRT's 6.4-liter V8 that puts out 475 anxious horses and 470 lb-ft of asphalt/dirt grabbing torque. Still want more excitement, then drive the unbelievable Trackhawk that comes with a super charged 6.2-liter that delivers 707 angry horses and an astounding 645 lb-ft of torque in this rocket ship.
Besides all those engine and trim choices, the Jeep Grand Cherokee continues to be a very handsome vehicle with its smooth lines, gentle curves and just refuses to go unnoticed. This theme continues when you slide up into those comfortable and sturdy seats with a cabin that will make you feel that this is a very pleasant place to spend your drive times.
