2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4dr SUV (5.7L 8cyl 5A)
After considering many other vehicles, I'm so glad I got the JGC. Smooth acceleration, quiet cabin, great techie tools--the Nav, bluetooth, hard drive for my music (uploaded via USB, about 800 songs fit w/room to spare). Incentives made it more affordable to lease than the Liberty, and when I feel the Hemi respond, I know I made the right choice. Of course, the gas mileage is lousy, but after driving a 4-banger for 3 years, I was ready to get some power....and this Jeep really delivers. It won out over the Honda Pilot, Ford Edge, Saturn Vue, Mazda CX-9 & Mitsubishi Outlander. The incentives plus dealer's willingness to negotiate made it a no-brainer. If you like 'em loaded, look at JGC!
High-intensity/discharge headlights make visibility at night incredibly bright. Heated front & rear seats, nav w/hard drive for music, and the HEMI!
Any way to improve MPG and retain the performance...a pipe dream, I know!
