    The new Grand Cherokee remains unmistakably Jeep, but the refresh has softened off some of the bluff edges enough to give the large SUV a touch more Euro-centric appeal. Ok i admit i was not shocked to get one, as i knew it had been launched in the USA and having had 2 Grand Cherokees in my time i was keen to try one out. Refinement is good, too, with road and tyre noise well suppressed, which makes the Grand Cherokee a comfortable place to chew-up the miles. The air suspension can be jacked up through five settings to a maximum ground clearance of mm, compared to the standard ride height of mm.

    Jeep Grand Cherokee Review () | Autocar

    An all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee, a new flagship to breath life into the moribund Jeep brand. Based on the next-gen Merc ML platform, which Jeep has put into production ahead of Mercedes, the new Grand Cherokee is longer, wider and roomier than its predecessor. The styling is more contemporary, too, and the interior plastics and design are a welcome higher-grade. Under the skin is independent suspension — struts at the front and a first for the Grand Cherokee, a rear multi-link axle — combined with air springs.

    There will be a choice of four-wheel drive systems, the simpler Quadra-Trac II featuring a low-range transfer box, the higher-spec Quadra-Drive II featuring an electronic rear limited-slip diff. See pics of the Jeep Grand Cherokee in action. Also new is a bhp 3. The petrol V6 and hemi V8 will be special order-only, although available in right-hand drive. We're about to find The ride in particular is compliant and well-damped, although like many air systems a little jittery over small imperfections.

    A big step forward is the well-resolved steering, which is sensibly-weighted and responsive, particularly around the straight ahead. Hopefully this will transfer well to UK roads and driving conditions. Refinement is good, too, with road and tyre noise well suppressed, which makes the Grand Cherokee a comfortable place to chew-up the miles. Unfortunately the all-important 3. Off-road the Grand Cherokee copes with slippy conditions very well, thanks to the well-tuned Terrain Select system and incredibly grippy Nokian winter tyres.

    We spent a lot of time in the snow program, which locks the torque split at Front, longitudinal, 4WD; Power: Best looking Jeep in ages and from the spec of the diesel, one of the most competitive. Certainly compares well on power, performance and emissions to the likes of the Disco, and X5. I've been waiting for it to be availible!

    Interesting that despite being bigger, the Petrol engine is cleaner on C02 than the Mercedes Diesel in the previous model. I posted this the other week, thought i would post again, for those who did not read it!!!!! Ok i admit i was not shocked to get one, as i knew it had been launched in the USA and having had 2 Grand Cherokees in my time i was keen to try one out. I currently have an X5 so i am looking to change Nothing winds me up more than having to make a car choice based on a 15min test drive, so living with it for 2 weeks gave me a real feel for the Car on a day to day basics.

    Once taken out of the Avis car park i was met with Snow coming down, it was 5pm, getting dark, and ahead of me lay a mile drive to the Hotel. I settled in switched the electronic Suspension and traction control to Snow setting and set off. This car has grip i can tell you. I arrived at our hotel still feeling refreshed. The whole Car is larger and has a much more aggressive front end bonnet reminds me of my X5 as does looking at the back.

    I must just go back to the Suspension, You can raise and lower the suspension, just like a discovery or range rover. Im sure there is more i could write and im sure some of you would of appreciated more spec info but im not a writer, ive just put my thoughts on what is a wonderful car and living with it for 2 weeks.

    I think Jeep will have a Hit on there hands when this gets to the UK. Very interested to read the review! Always good to read "owners" reviews or at least people who have spent some real time with them. I think the Fuel effeciency of the new one with the bhp Diesel V6 is supposed to be roughly 40 Motorway, 30 city and 35 combined, or there abouts. But I think the starting price is just under 30K.

    The price for the Limited like you have in your picture is 35K and the Overland which ads stuff like rader guided cruise control, heated steering wheel,, full length sunroof, cross path detection etc is around 40K. And Spec For Spec much cheaper than the X5's and the like.
