The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a midsize SUV, like the Ford Explorer or Chevrolet TrailBlazer, but it offers superior off-road capability comparable to that of the upscale Land Rover LR3.
Outside, the Grand Cherokee is edgy and angular, clean and contemporary, uncluttered by body cladding. Yet it is instantly recognizable as a Jeep.
Inside, the atmosphere is light, comfortable, and enveloping, with lots of seat adjustments, and excellent outward vision around relatively slim windshield posts. Switches and controls are clearly labeled and easy to find and use. In back is nearly 70 cubic feet of cargo space. A wide range of engines is available. The 5.7-liter Hemi V8 is particularly good for towing or driving at higher elevations.
The Limited comes with leather upholstery with heated first- and second-row seats. Also standard: rear obstacle detection; rear backup camera; automatic climate control; sunroof; Boston Acoustics six-speaker, 276-watt AM/FM/CD stereo with MP3 capability; power adjustable pedals; power passenger seat; leather-wrapped steering wheel; Sirius satellite radio with one-year subscription; memory function for the seats, pedals, and mirrors; automatic headlamps; rain-sensing automatic wipers; auto-dimming rearview mirror; HomeLink universal garage door opener; an upgraded tire-pressure monitor that displays the status of individual tires; adjustable roof-rack crossrails; and machined-face 17-inch aluminum wheels. For 2008, the stereo has Jeep’s MyGig Entertainment System, which includes a 6.5-inch touch-screen and a 20-gigabyte hard drive to hold songs and pictures. Limited 4WD ($38,555) gets all that plus hill start assist, hill descent control, and Quadra-Trac II, with Quadra-Drive II as an option.
