Great Jeep for fun and towing
By Starguy on


2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


I have the limited 4.7L with the towing package and air brake module. This thing pulls a 28' travel trailer like it was nothing. The trailer has the leveler bars which make it possible with this size. The motor strains some while passing up hill or really steep grades. So if you know the limits it's great. Gas mileage while pulling was between 13 if you push it and 16 if you keep it around 60 to 65 mph. but straight driving highway mileage I've gone from 18 to 25 depending on speed and wind conditions. I have everything except the 5.7 hemi and the trim package of the Overland model. The wife and I love it and are going to purchase it when the lease is up. Safety was a big factor also,solid.

Best Features

4wd system lets you explore anywhere, safety is outstanding, towing, handling, fit and finish is ok, buying the bumper to bumper warranty, remote start, heated seats front & back, leather seats, sound system

Worst Features

voice command system needs work,not able to have passenger use navigation while in motion,not having the cruise control on steering wheel its hard to see at night,get bugs worked out of 30 gig hard drive so songs dont dump,faster response time for nav. system.
