Why is the JGC being compared to soft roaders? I would have thought a more accurate comparison would be with Pajero, Prado and the like.

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Price ruled them out IBAJ. From the article:

Quote:
Both start at about $40,000, another entry criterion for this comparison that meant also ruling out the more expensive Mitsubishi Pajero and Toyota Prado that complete the top 10 sellers list.

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Hi All,
The JGC used for VIP duties would seem to be 5.7 LTD's. Do not seem to be 14's but the 13's with the 6spd gearbox. Hard to find really good pictures. Probably not Quadradrives either.
Regards

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Haha, just saw that



Franklin, 27, was driving a Jeep belonging to his girlfriend, television presenter and model Jesinta Campbell, when it was involved in the crash on New South Head Road in Rose Bay just after 7pm.

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Buddy Franklin's car crash may jeopardise Jesinta Campbell's Jeep deal

Does this mean that Forward Collision Warning with Crash Mitigation doesn't work?

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

I see Overland magazine has gone back and reviewed the Disco4 and GC Overland diesels, asking if they got the results wrong for their 4OTY review. Back then the Disco placed 3rd and the GC 6th.

They came to the same conclusion as last time, the Disco has better wheel travel and articulation, a better seating position for offroad, and better air intake position. They also give points to the Disco for it's size..... of course they don't mention this means more weight.
