About Jeep Grand Cherokee

Jeep has become synonymous with quality, and the 2014 Grand Cherokee is further proof of that.

New Gears and Trim

Jeep Grand Cherokee 0-60Probably the most important new feature here is its use of a ZF 8-speed automatic for all Grand Cherokees, in contrast to the previous five forward ratios that the V6 had. In addition, there is a paddle shifter on the steering wheel and an Eco button that you can use to change the gearbox shift and sensitivity of the throttle for driving on optimum fuel.

This is a very convenient feature, and on the V8, the Eco button is also used for cylinder deactivation. An optional air suspension is available, and you can use that to reduce the Grand Cherokee’s “aero” height when you drive fast.

There are four trims available, the Summit, Overland, Limited and Laredo, with all-wheel drive available for the Limited and Laredo models for $2000, and $3000 for the Summit and Overland. The base 290-hp V-6 and the 360 Hemi haven’t been changed much, except the Hemi is now capable of towing 7400 pounds with the rear drive and 7200 pounds on the 4-wheel.

The V6 however, has been improved significantly as it can now pull 6200 pounds, up from the previous 5000. Furthermore, the gearbox is new, improving the power plants and the fuel economy.

As far as mileage goes for the rear-wheel-drive V-6s, it is now 25 mpg, up by 2, while the efficiency for city driving is still at 17 mpg. As for the all-wheel-drive V-6 economy it is set at 17 and 24 in the city and highway respectively, up 1. The Hemi on the other hand, has a mileage of 14 mpg in the city with an all-wheel drive and 22 mpg at the highway with a rear drive.

The Grand Cherokee Driving Experience

All of these would be for nothing if the Grand Cherokee was difficult to handle, but the V6 makes it easy to drive this Jeep, 2.5 tons notwithstanding. As the spec sheet above shows, the Grand Cherokee provides a number of possible configurations with the suspension and chassis, including the Selec-Terrain, a multi-surface chassis managed system, and there are options for all-wheel drive, rear-wheel and more.

In addition, the Grand Cherokee comes with Selec-Speed Control for rugged driving, and the hill-descent control system handles the brakes and throttle very well. Under this system, you can drive downhill easily, but it’s just as easy to creep uphill, something you don’t see in other vehicles of this type. The basic configuration is all right, but if you want to tinker around, push the button, point the nose up and you’ll be able to manage the ascent rate in 1 mph increments using the shift paddles.

This sounds impressive, and it really is, because in test drives climbing rocks is very smooth on the Grand Cherokee, and it’s no harder than driving to a parking lot. The steering wheel is very precise and accurate, and the suspension moves around in a predictable manner when you drive over a curve.

If you’re the type who enjoys driving in rugged terrain, then check out the Quadra-Drive II all-wheel-drive, an option that’s available for the Overland and Limited and standard for the Summit. If you go with the Limited, you’ll have in your hands an all-weather ride for mud, snow, rock, sand as well as automatic mode.

Design

The 2014 Grand Cherokee has a very nice exterior, with the front part very different from the 2013 version. Furthermore, the headlamps are somewhat shallower and looks more sophisticated. A closer inspection will also reveal lots of goodies, including a profile of the World War II Jeep, with the inscription “Since 1941”, visible. Since the grille is shallower, the fascia is higher, the rear has a very nice design, and the revamped lift gate completes the new look.

Conclusion

Taking everything into consideration, the 2014 Grand Cherokee is really one of a kind. It combines many of the elements we have come to associate with Jeep but also makes good use of technology so that you get the best of both worlds. Whether you’re cruising in the city or want to go off-road, the Grand Cherokee can deliver.
