A capable SUV
By MS&T EE on
2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
Bought the Limited 4wd w/5.7L Hemi as a tow vehicle for fishing boat. Other than pickup trucks, few vehicles are available capable of towing more than 1,500 pounds - most SUVs are now "crossover" vehicles (station wagons). The Grd Cherokee can tow up to 7,200# w/Hemi and tow pkg. Although my experience is limited(2 wks), I have no complaints. Cabin is quiet, handling is nimble yet stable, body is solid, doors and interior fit very well, Hemi starts easily and runs sm-o-o-o-th. Backup camera great to hitch trailer. Insufficient experience to comment on reliability and fuel economy. Jeep web site is confusing-QuadDriveII (limited slip, skid plates, tow hooks) came standard with 5.7L Hemi.
5.7L Hemi, limited slip differentials (front/rear), Bluetooth hands-free cell phone connection, auto dimming inside and OUTSIDE rear-view mirrors, backup sensors and camera, navigation system standard.
Supply owner's manual with vehicle. Vehicle comes with a short User's Guide and a CD, which contains Owner's Manual, Navigation/Audio System Manual, Warranty, etc. Free manuals can be ordered by calling toll free number. Offer the 4.7L instead of 5.7L V8-excellent engine, better fuel economy.
