This is a 318 CI (5.2 L) V8, but they don't have that selection on the drop-down menu.
I bought this Jeep used in 1999, and now have more than 288,000 km on it.
I'm in the process of selling it after 15 years of great service.
The only reason I'm selling is because we no longer need two vehicles -- the Jeep is as good as ever.
There has never been any work done on the vehicle except regular oil changes and maintenance, tire and brake-pad changes, etc.
It can tow heavy loads in mountainous areas with no problem.
It burns a bit more gas than modern vehicles with smaller engines, but it's not too bad, in my opinion.
A Jeep like this in decent shape will continue to provide good driving.

I absolutely love my jeep, other than the gas mileage. Unfortunately my jeep was not taken care of by its previous owners. My family has had the car for 7 years now and I've been driving it for the past year. I've put 6k miles on it myself. Everything has been great up until a month ago when everything froze because the coolant system has a leak. This resulted in the end of times.
Unfortunately I have to call it quits and get a new car.
Radiator is leaking, transmission cooler line is leaking, bad coolant return line o-ring.
Essentially the coolant system is shot.
If I had the money and time, I would keep it for as long as possible.
Overall, if taken care of it will run forever!

I bought my 1st new and loved the comfort and reliability of my 1st Jeep. At 286,000 miles I hit a big buck on the way to work. I decided to let it go because of the mileage and damage. I couldn't get it out of my mind after over 20 years of ownership so I kinda kept a eye out for another one. I found one just like my old Limited with only 155,00 miles on it and now it's sitting in my driveway. Other than the lousy (EPA) paint job I think it is one of Jeeps best ever vehicles.

I loved my Jeep Grand Cherokee up til someone ran into me and totaled out my poor car, they bent the frame.
had around 200,000 miles on him and was still running strong for the most part. It was our only car so my husband and I put lots of miles on it driving it back and forth to our jobs and he held up very well.
Did have some issues with mysterious electrical problems.
Sometimes car wouldn't start unless you jiggled the battery wires (battery was good) and the power windows decided they didn't want to work any more.
Also, for some reason the cruise control and overdrive stopped working so I got really bad gas mileage, not it got good mpg to begin with.

bought mine new in 93 and now have 235,000 miles on it. In the life of the vehicle I have only replaced the fuel pump, water pump, and transmission lines. not bad at all for a vehicle of this age. Liked it so much I just purchased a 2011 GC Larado. I loved my old 93 so much I couldn't get rid of it. It now does winter plow duty. Still going strong!

Purchased my 93 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited (V8 5.2 L) in the summer of '02 with 96,000 miles on it from Valley Dodge in Boulder, CO. 2 weeks after I bought it, it needed some repairs - the starter and a couple of factory recall items as well. Other fixes throughout the years - Power Steering, Idle Motor, A/C Pump, Coolant Sensor, 4x4 Switch, Power Window Switch, Battery (2x), ext Paint, and other minor interior items, but overall the engine has continued to run like a champ at 160K+ miles now - and not even an oil leak! The interior is loaded (...with things that can break...) and power everything, AWESOME for city driving or off-roading - would recommend the Limited model over other models.
