The Grand Cherokee has earned a five-star safety rating in both front and side impact tests from the federal government. It drives like a G500 Benz to me. I have one and it has been trouble free for 90,000 miles. We chose a dark color interior because with our past jeeps the cloth would spot up with just a drop of water. Many features available on the luxurious Limited trim were also available on the base Laredo trim level.
It's also flex-fuel capable in 45 states, meaning it can run on gasoline or up to 85 percent ethanol E85. Though it helps make the big Jeep more affordable, the V6 engine has a tough time moving the Grand Cherokee's weight, especially when loaded and trying to pass at highway speeds. Remember this is only a 3. There's a separate Enter button, which can be annoying because intuition suggests pressing the toggle switch down. If you are familiar with the performance of the 4. The inherent economy of these lean-running machines--and the intriguing solutions engineers are developing to deal with the emissions woes that lean-running compression ignition brings--captivate me. Styling for the base Laredo is simple and clean, while models such as the Limited and Overland have more ornate treatments, including body-colored cladding, fancier wheels and more bright-work.

The rest of the kilometers were in heavy traffic 22. Rentacar industries tend to take just about any car value downhill. The 2008 Grand Cherokee can accommodate four adults in comfort---five in a pinch.
It's just that between the 2008 and 2009 model years, the only things that changed were a new leather interior package and a redesigned Hemi, which the Jeep I drove. The front and rear differentials are both open, with no limited-slip capability. Setting these on most radios is just a matter of holding down the desired preset. The recall began August 19, 2015. Standard on Limited 4x4 models, it is controlled via an electronic shift mechanism.
We were, however, disappointed by the Jeep's behavior during a few simulated emergency stops. The ride is harder then I like, but not bad. The problem I had with it was comfort. Torque is that force that propels you from intersections and helps you tow trailers up long grades, and you can really feel it with the Hemi.

If it were possible, I would pay to have the diesel 3.

This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. It felt especially secure around high-speed curves. That's as much torque as the Hemi, at half the engine speed.
I'm generally a diesel booster. The rear tray that flips over to be a plastic tray that holds items in place is a great idea. As far as front seat room, it's not bad. As far as front seat room, it's not bad. Suprising pickup for a 6 cyl Diesel. Great suspension set up Darkman on 05.
