Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Thanks for the link, and not a bad story.

However, I wish these dimwit journo's would get it right for once. It's no longer an SRT8.............it's now SRT only, the 8 dropped for the new models.

Now i'm off to dump 300g's of carbon at my local shops

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media



Jeep Grand Cherokee might be getting a new facelift. Mopar which have been working with Jeep for the last few years to create concepts for their annual Easter Jeep Safari. Previously, two Cherokee have already been announced and introduced. Now, they are showing us the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
The Grand Cherokee will join the other two Cherokee and another 3 Wrangler at the Easter Jeep Safari event in Utah. Painted with a Mojave Sand color, the Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel Trail Warrior will be fitted with Jeep’s performance part and also Mopar accessories. This can be seen on the satin black accent, the 20inch alloy wheels that are fitted with an All-Terrain BFGoodrich tires and also a roof basket.
The interior of the vehicle will be covered with black and tan color and will be given other accessories like all-weather floor mats, door sills, a pedal kit, cargo tray and a lighted Jeep logo sill.

The article looks a bit off, but perhaps the next trailhawk?

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Another funny one from the UK, I guess compared to a focus the Jepp is 'menacing'.... lol

Quote:
It is absolutely huge. Not quite as long as the ridiculous Audi Q7 but in terms of road-going threat, which is what people buy cars like this for, it actually out-menaces the Q7 by being nearly three inches taller. Get out of my way, little man in your little car. That's the intention. In reality you'll just annoy normal people in their normal cars.
Vehicles like the Grand Cherokee really make me wonder what sort of person buys them. There's no doubt that it's remarkably practical and super luxurious, but lots of cars are exactly that these days without looking like they're going to eat you.
The difference with an off-roader like the Grand Cherokee is that it's got six different driving modes - sand, mud, rock, snow, crawl and auto - plus a low or high ratio eight-speed gearbox and height adjustable suspension.
That lot would take it a lot farther than parked on the pavement but sadly that's the biggest task it will ever face from most owners.
Given the weather we've had recently, and are bound to get again, there is a new argument for owning such a vehicle because it will get us through some serious flooding.
But apart from farmers and people living in threatened areas I can't understand its attraction or even begin to comprehend what sort of people will spend 50 grand on a top-range Summit model.
Probably idiot footballers or their equally stupid wives who want to out-muscle the posh hair and sunspecs set outside the school gates.

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Personally I think anyone that got upset about this is a dipshit.
Let’s go to the MCG when its half full, and realistically think I will be one of 10 people in the crowd to win. Morons.

I bought a jeep, paid a negotiated price and it came with 100% of the jeep customer service we expect. Those that only paid 25% of the price should feel ripped off that they dont get the same level of customer dissatisfaction.

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Have a look at the Jeep Australia Facebook page - I suspect there are a few people in head office and the media agency that have had a VERY long day....

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Would that not make it a successful gimmick for Jeep to get people talking?

You will get the morons that will go out and buy one just because they have the mentality of - so many people wanted to win one, they must be good

I cant see Jeep being concerned at all about anyone that feels unfairly treated in this, specially when they have little or no concern about customers that have bought their product and not received what they paid for

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

I think the issue here, is not that they didn't win, but the fairness of it. Some had more advantage than others. Jeep did not comply with the conditions they setup for the competition. Apparently they were supposed to receive a text message on the phones. Some didn't get that message until after the competition had closed. I see several complaints have been made to the ACCC, so this might get interesting.
Jeep Australia can't manage their own workplace, let alone try to attempt to run a raffle.
