The Fourth Generation Jeep Grand Cherokee
Many of the used Jeep Grand Cherokees that you’ll find at dealerships like Frank Kent Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram will be from the fourth generation. This is the current generation and has been around since 2010. The fourth generation of the Jeep Grand Cherokee made it’s debut at the 2009 New York Auto Show, but didn’t actually make its first appearance at dealerships until the summer of 2010. The designers and engineers at Jeep strove to keep the Cherokee’s many widely-loved attributes in the fourth generation, but to also modernize and update the inside of the cabin and exterior.
The cabins of many fourth generation Jeep Grand Cherokees can be upholstered in premium leather trim with real wood accents to add a sense of luxury to your SUV. Bluetooth and Uconnect systems also became options and upgrades like these improve the overall style and capability of these vehicles, though can add to the final cost. To this day, the Jeep Grand Cherokee makes a statement on the road and is a favorite in households all over America so finding a used Jeep Grand Cherokee will always be a great idea.
Used Jeep Grand Cherokee Body Specs
The body and accompanying four-wheel independent suspension of the fourth generation Jeep Grand Cherokee were updated to improve off-road capabilities while still keeping the steel unibody. An optional Quadra-Lift height adjustable air suspension system became available in this time period, which helps to boost this SUV’s ground clearance. If this is equipped, you’ll find it easier to off-road and clear many smaller obstructions on your adventure. Rear-wheel-drive is standard on all fourth-generation models but 4WD is available, with the available FWD equipped (with packages: Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II, Quadra-Drive II) drivers have increased control on uneven terrain and in inclement weather. Meaning finding a used Jeep Grand Cherokee will be versatile in all road and weather conditions.
For the fourth generation, a new 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine was released and the old favorite 5.7-liter Hemi V8 continued to be available. The V6 was rated at 290 horsepower and 260 pounds-feet of torque, while the Hemi V8 was rated at 360 horsepower and 390 pounds-feet of torque. The Hemi V8 engine was partnered with a Multiple Displacement System that limited four cylinders in low-power situations. The unit is also accompanied with a multi-speed automatic transmission that creates an outstanding 7,400-pounds of towing capacity. Depending on which engine and powertrain option you find you are likely to get 13-22 MPG in the city and an outstanding 19-30 MPG in the city. If you come across a used Jeep Grand Cherokee and have it in front of you, make sure to get a solid understanding of its specific engine’s capability so that you know exactly how much power you’ll have on the road and what the bill will look like at the pump.
