The Jeep Grand Cherokee

Jeep has heavily revised the GAll Used Jeep Grand Cherokee's 4.7-liter V8 for 2008, and this popular engine is now rated at 305 horsepower -- nearly as much as the larger Hemi V8. The company has also given the All Used Jeep Grand Cherokee cabin a much-needed refresh, adding more soft-touch surfaces, upgraded lighting and a telescoping steering wheel.  

New Features

Newly available features for the All Used Jeep Grand Cherokee include xenon HID headlights, the MyGIG hard-drive-based audio/navigation system, a back-up camera, a rear entertainment system and Sirius Backseat TV. For buyers planning to tap into the JGC's utility, technology like hill descent control, hill start assist and trailer sway control is now offered as well. Finally, availability of the diesel V6 has been expanded to the base Laredo model.


 

Refreshing

The always-popular All Used Jeep Grand Cherokee's 4.7-liter V8 is significantly revised. Thanks to a freer-flowing cylinder head design, higher compression and improved combustion, it now makes 305 horsepower -- 70 more than last year. Perhaps more important are the upgrades Jeep has made to the Grand Cherokee's interior, which has always been a weak spot for the third-generation JGC.

Zero to Zoom

No fewer than five engines are offered on the All Used Jeep Grand Cherokee, with choices as disparate as a turbodiesel V6 capable of returning mileage in the 20s and a 6.1-liter V8 capable of delivering you to 60 mph in fewer than 5 seconds.

Trim Levels

A five-passenger midsize SUV, the All Used Jeep Grand Cherokee comes in four trim levels: All Used Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, All Used Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, All Used Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland and All Used Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. All trims are available with either two- or four-wheel drive except the All Used Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, which is all-wheel drive only.
