Best SUV I've ever owned
I have owned mostly smaller SUVs in the past including Honda CRV, 3 Subaru Outbacks and most recently Jeep Renegade. I finally made a leap to the mid SUV segment and got a 2017 Jeep GC Limited.. What a difference. For a bigger SUV, it drives smooth, very quiet and it is totally not a gas guzzler as I initially worried about. In fact for the power of the engine I was getting 24-25 during the summer time and about 21-22 in our winter so far. Interior is clean and upscale looking better than the Toyota Highlanders and Honda Pilot. I am very impressed with the Jeep Grand Cherokee. It's value at all levels.
My first Chrysler product....and I love it!
I come from a Ford family. If you're not from Michigan you won't get it. Basically, my whole family works/worked for Ford. That means you buy a Ford. I've had a few, and they weren't bad, but I was always told to steer clear of Chrysler products because they were considered "bottom of the barrel". I took the plunge after 1.5 years of meticulous research (I do this for all of my auto purchases). I started to notice that many of my friends were buying Jeeps. I had no clue why, but I rode in a Limited and I was astonished! The fit, finish, and materials were really nice. It wasn't "bottom of the barrel" at all. So my search began. I used to drive a 2009 Acura TL SH-AWD and I liked it but it was time for a new car. After all of my research, I decided that I wanted either an SRT or Summit. In thinking about how long I wanted to keep the car, creature comforts, etc., I decided upon a 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit with the 5.7L V8 (Black on Black). This car is AMAZING! Full disclosure, I've only had it for about a month, but I've put about 2100 miles on it and bought it new. So far no major issues, but I can say that there are a couple minor things I don't like. First, the multi-Cylinder Displacement system is annoying. I bought a V8 for a reason, and yes it does help with gas but I want the ability to turn it off completely or on. It makes all kinds of random "juddering" noises and that's annoying. Secondly, I have the air suspension, which I highly recommend based upon your state's roads. Michigan's are horrible so the air suspension is helpful. My issue is that its sort to of noisy at times, I don't know if that's inside or outside, but it can be a bit noisy. Third and finally, the sunroof shade rattles a bit when I go over large bumps. It comes and goes but it can be annoying. Overall, if you've never experienced a Jeep Grand Cherokee, I HIGHLY recommend testing one out or renting one for the weekend. The trims levels are all different in many ways but also similar as well in others (i.e. the interior to some degree). Take one for a spin, you won't be disappointed! I love my Jeep!! UPDATE: 6 or so months later, I still love my Jeep! Its still-functioning optimally and I have no complaints. I made it through my first Michigan winter and it was glorious. Moving to the snow position makes travel in this type of weather a breeze! The V8 engine is a must if it's in your budget. Worth every penny!! I also had the opportunity to take the Jeep on a road trip and it was amazing! Adaptive Cruise Control makes driving a breeze on the expressway and in normal traffic. Overall I would still recommend this car to anyone. Worth the $$!
My all black 2017 Altitude
This is my third Grand Cherokee. And this by far is the best. I am in love with the updates and the comfort and obvious appearance of the Altitude. A few outward mods and I feel it represents me well driving down the street. Everything from turning radius to the feel of the wheel when driving, Stereo system, seat comfort, etc... Heads keep turning and the positive comments keep on coming in. I am a Mopar- Jeep guy at heart and am truly glad I leased another grand Cherokee. The comments about the engine turning off at stops is a bit ridiculous. All you have to do is PUSH a BUTTON to turn that feature off. C'mon. And this V6 is quick. Very quick with a "Sport" mode which I rarely use. How fast do you really want to go in an SUV ? But this one is quicker than my previous two. Plenty of power if you need to avoid someone or something, or pass another vehicle. I Just love this Jeep.
