The Grand Cherokee is legendary for its rugged off-road capability, sensible size and car-like ride and interior. While most SUVs have grown to near-gargantuan proportions, the 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee remains true to the general size of the original 1992 model. Engine choices, however, have grown larger and include a choice between a fuel-efficient 3.7-liter V6 or powerful 5.7-liter HEMI V8. Jeep also offers a choice of three four-wheel-drive systems, which range from a basic shift-on-the-fly high/low transfer case to a permanently engaged system capable of sending power to whichever wheel has traction.
If you like the idea of owning a rugged SUV that offers a luxurious interior, lots of power and doesn’t fill your entire garage, the 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee should be at the top of your shopping list.
The Overland trim has been dropped from the line, leaving only the Laredo and Limited trims.
The 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee retains the off-road capability of its forefathers, and rates high in the areas of ride comfort, steering and handling. However, on the ones we drove, at least, the brake pedals felt somewhat soft and seemed to need to travel quite a distance before attaining the desired affect. Seating comfort is supreme, with excellent neck protection provided by the forward-leaning headrest. On the road, the V6 feels as though it has its work cut out for it; we prefer the 5.7-liter HEMI, which turns the Grand Cherokee into a drag racer, albeit a thirsty one. Off-road, we were amazed by the grip that the Quadra-Drive II displayed. When so equipped, the Grand Cherokee seemed oblivious to deep mud, extremely steep slopes and wildly uneven terrain.
30-Gigabyte Hard Drive
Standard on the Limited trims, the 30-gigabyte hard drive allows for ripping up to 6,700 songs.
The Grand Cherokee’s Quadra-Drive II is the best off-road system ever to wear the Jeep Trail Rated badge.
