2012 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE
I purchased a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 and all I can say is "giddy up." While I've been driving if for a little under 30 day I am impressed with its 0-60 time for a high performance SUV. While the suspension feels sturdy, I'm not a fine of the racing tires becasue I live in the Midwest (where you need more tire tread). The car is somewhat overloaded with electronics (cruise adjustment, lane change warning light and sound, auto light adjustment). I'm really not that lazy... I also don't care for the gear adjustment lever in the steering wheel (gears can be changed accidently at any time). Otherwise, the car's a lot of fun!

1995 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE
I bought this car for $1600. For being 20 years old this car is in good condition. There is no real body work that needs repair just some minor things inside the vehicle like the hydrolic braces on the back door. Some dome lights, a new batter and a new spare. This truck starts up every time on the first try and has never given me any issues for being a 20 YEAR OLD CAR WITH OVE 200,000 miles. I mostly bought this vehicle so I can go up to the Mountains and down to the River/ Lakes. It's a V8 AWD all the time drive but has options for 4 low and 4 high. Insurance was cheep for this vehicle ($60 and still going down) if you want a truck to get you around off road I'd get one of these.
2014 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE
This is an amazing SUV. It's full of luxury but yet tough as nails. I feel so safe in it. It has an award winning Pentastar engine with a very efficient and powerful transmission. It gets between 20 and 22mpg. I read a lot of very questionable reviews about this SUV, but honestly those are people that don't realize what they have. They aren't used to driving an 8 speed automatic transmission. This type of transmission is very new and only available on other luxury vehicle brands. All you have to do is press the gas pedal and go! It's got a ton of power and drives like a sports car. Absolutely love my Jeep! I traded from a Cadillac, so I know luxury.
Used Jeep Grand Cherokee Information
The Jeep Grand Cherokee was one of the first unibody sport utility vehicles on the market, first entering showrooms as a 1993 model. This midsize SUV is now in its fourth generation, which debuted for the 2011 model year. For more than 20 years on the market, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has been well-received by buyers who enjoy its family-moving capabilities and adherence to the Jeep heritage.
For the last two generations, Jeep has offered the Grand Cherokee with V6 and V8 engine choices and a standard automatic transmission.
The third-generation Grand Cherokee was introduced for the 2005 model year. Laredo, Limited and Overland trims were offered, as well as three engine choices, including a standard 3.7-liter V6 and optional 4.7- and 5.7-liter V8s. A five-speed automatic transmission was standard across the model line. Also available was a high-performance Grand Cherokee SRT8, which came with a 6.1-liter V8 engine.
The current model debuted for 2011 and comes with a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 290 horsepower. A 5.7-liter V8 with 360 horsepower is also available, and both engines were paired with a five-speed automatic transmission at launch. An eight-speed automatic transmission became standard across the lineup starting with the 2014 model year. A turbodiesel V6 engine also became available, which helps the Grand Cherokee yield an impressive 22/30 mpg city/highway.
Two four-wheel drive systems are offered: Quadra-Trac I and Quadra-Trac II. Quadra-Trac I functions similarly to an all-wheel drive system, while Quadra-Trac II adds low-range gearing and includes Jeep's Selec-Terrain system, which features five drive modes: Automatic, Sand, Snow, Mud and Rock.
Inside, the Grand Cherokee has bucket seats up front and a 60-40 split-folding bench seat in the rear. Cabin space is excellent with 105.4 cubic-feet of passenger volume and 36.3 cubic-feet of storage space behind the second-row seat. Fold the second row and there's a maximum of 68.3 cubic feet of cargo space.
The Grand Cherokee comes standard with cloth upholstery, while leather upholstery is available on higher trims, including the Grand Cherokee Limited, Overland and Summit. All models come equipped with a tilt-and-telescopic steering column, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, a USB port and 12-volt power outlets. All models except Laredo have a 115-volt auxiliary power outlet.
Throughout its time on the market so far, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has been well-received and a popular choice for both new and used car buyers.
