The Jeep Grand Cherokee was introduced in 1993, and its fourth generation models were released in 2011. The vehicle was completely redesigned but still shows a distinct design connection with its predecessor. Simply put, it still looks like a Grand Cherokee, just sleeker compared to the old blocky design. Those looking to buy used cars in Indianapolis should definitely consider getting the 2011 Grand Cherokee. Read on to find out why.
The 2011 Grand Cherokee is a midsize SUV that's capable of going off-road and has key components that it shared with the next-generation Mercedes-Benz ML, wherein its wheelbase is lengthened by more than five inches while the overall exterior dimensions are just slightly expanded. It is about 2 inches longer, 3 inches wider and a half-inch taller compared to its predecessor.
When it comes to driving, the Grand Cherokee has a high level of capability and sophistication. New to this model is the four-wheel independent suspension that absorbs bumps easily without getting rattled just like a typical SUV would, and it can turn corners without the top-heavy motions. When driving on regular roads, the vehicle has a comfortable ride, good steering, and a quiet interior. It may be an SUV, but it drives like a crossover.
Inside, the cabin uses soft materials, a wood trim, and attractive themes that give it an upscale vibe. Room-wise, passenger space is ample in all seating positions, with the rear seat having an extra four inches of legroom in comparison. There is also no problem with storage, as the cargo volume is 35.1 cubic feet and becomes twice that with the split rear seats folded.
The Grand Cherokee is typically offered in four trim levels: the standard Laredo, Limited, Summit, and Overland. The standard equipment includes cloth upholstery, keyless ignition, auto-dimming rearview mirror, and other nifty features. The standard engine is a 3.6-liter, six-cylinder engine that pumps out 290 horsepower with a five-speed automatic transmission. There is also an optional 5.7-liter, eight-cylinder engine that gives 360 horsepower.
Overall, the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers a stylish look both inside and the outside while providing a comfortable ride. Those looking for used cars for sale in Indianapolis should visit dealerships such as Fletcher Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM that has the Jeep Grand Cherokee in stock, and ready for a test drive.
