Solid, powerful Jeep 4x4
By jhbremer on
2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
I purchased my Jeep in February 2012.
It was a pretty good find, given it's age...only 34k miles on it when purchased.
Rocky Mountain Edition (nice wheels, leather, sunroof, power everything, heated seats, Boston Acoustics).
I've put 15k miles on it since I bought it...with ZERO problems.
The only thing I can think of was I got a warning about my 4x4 system for about 3 minutes while on the highway, but nothing since.
Handles well for an SUV, plenty of power (love the torque from the
4.7L), and gas mileage isn't terrible (I can get 20-21 on the highway).
Very pleased with this Jeep.
-4.7L V8 (pretty good economy for a V8, and decent power, sounds good)
-4x4 and traction control is unmatched by other brands
-Some complain about the hard interior...I like it.
Simple, tough, and easy to keep clean.
-New steering setup feels snug
-Mean looking Jeep
I'll never understand why Jeep decided to not use the High Output 4.7 from older Grand Cherokees
