2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4dr SUV 4WD (5.7L 8cyl 5A)
This 5.7 Liter Hemi really hauls! Unfortunately, this power does come at the expense of gas, where I average 12-14 MPG in mixed driving conditions. This might be more tolerable if the gas tank was larger. The engine is quiet and provides plenty of power, the transmission is smooth, suspension is excellent, road noise is inaudible (an improvement from earlier models), and off-road capabilities are unmatched for its class. This car is the perfect balance of power, refinement, and on and off road capabilities. Dependability will be determined; this has been a sore spot for Jeep in the past. Interior materials could be improved, plastic inside the car is abundant and cheap looking.
Engine, off-road capabilities, back up sensor, navigation, easy fold down seats, tire pressure sensors, on-board computer, perfect size.
GAS MILEAGE/LARGER FUEL TANK! Interior plastic/leather (except suede), bigger navigation screen, DVD entertainment screen is small and doesn't fold all the way down.
