2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


This is my 5th Jeep Grand Cherokee. 1st and 2nd were Laredos with the 4.0L 6cyl engine. Jeeps 3 and 4 were fully loaded Limiteds with the 4.7L V-8's. These limiteds were great with lots of power and torque and fun to drive. Without doing much research I decided to get the 6cyl 3.7L in my fully loaded Laredo. Since I no longer had to tow, I thought I'd save some money and get better fuel economy. BIG MISTAKE. This has got to be the weakest engine in its class and because it has to work so hard to keep this relatively heavy vehicle moving the gas mileage is bad too. I get about 1.5 mpg better than the v-8 and at highway speeds the mileage is actually worse than the V-8.Get the V- 8!

Best Features

Rock solid reliability, the best ride yet of any JGC's. GPS, bluetooth and back up camera.

Worst Features

At least 25 to 35 more ponies to at least match the competition
