Jeep traces its roots to the early years of World War II, when a car company called Willys-Overland Motors developed the Willys MB: a four-wheel-drive vehicle for the U.S. Army that was, as WWII reporter Ernie Pyle said, as “faithful as a dog, as strong as a mule, and as agile as a goat.”
Willys made Jeeps for civilian use — the first sport utility vehicles — after the war. The Jeep brand was bought by Chrysler in 1987. Today, Jeep makes several popular SUVs, such as the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Jeep Liberty, as well as the beloved Wrangler.
About the Jeep Grand Cherokee
Once boxy, the Grand Cherokee has become a muscular SUV with elegant details. Five trims of the 2014 Grand Cherokee are available: Laredo, Laredo E, Limited, Overland and Summit. All come standard with a 3.6-liter V6 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission.
The Quadra-Drive II all-wheel-drive is optional. The higher-priced trims offer a slew of luxury interior features, including a heated steering wheel and front seats, a year of SiriusXM satellite radio and a touchscreen display. The 4WD Limited, Overland and Summit also come with Selec-Terrain mode, which optimizes driving in sand, snow, rock or mud.
While the Jeep Grand Cherokee could be mistaken for a luxury SUV, it retains its Jeep off-roading credentials. “We climbed impressive rocks with the 2014 Grand Cherokee, and it was as easy as slipping into a parking spot at Nordstrom’s,” Car and Driver’s review says. Also available is the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, a faster and more powerful vehicle with a 6.4-liter hemi V-8 engine, 7,000-pound towing capacity and premium interior design. When you buy a new Grand Cherokee SRT, Jeep offers a free SRT Track Experience: a one-day session with expert driving instructors that includes an obstacle course and racing competition.
Jeep Grand Cherokee Environmental Impact
The Jeep Grand Cherokee can’t brag about its gas mileage: 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway. The 2014 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel improves upon that significantly, getting up to 22/30 mpg city/highway.
