Jeep Overland review
By Reed Mueller on
2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4dr SUV 4WD (5.7L 8cyl 5A)
I traded in my 2002 Overland for the 2006 model. I have been very pleased. The performance and handling are far superior. The hemi has limitless power but sucks down the gas (10mpg in town and 17 on the highway). Off road ability is still exceptional. Rear trunk appears smaller than previous version but still works well for me. This Jeep is definitely wider that the previous version with less rocking side to side movement.
Hemi power can't be beat. Handling is extraordinary and cab is very quiet. Interior looks awesome if you like the wood motif. 2006 is last year for inferno red pearl coat color. Get it while you can!
Seats are not as comfortable as the previous body style. Also front window is very low, it can be hard to see stop lights.
