Smile First time Jeep owner

Hi all,

I have always been a Toyota and Mitsubishi 4x4 owner, I recently purchased my first Jeep, a Grand Cherokee WK2 3.0 Diesel Laredo, well what a car, 177kw and 550nm of torque, I dont know the imperial equivalent but I can say its a rocket by diesel standards.
It is also a real head turner here is Australia, I can honestly say its the best equipped and nicest car I have driven, looking forward to many adventures in it , Australia is a 4x4 paradise, thanks for the opportunity to share this with all you like minded people.

Re: First time Jeep owner

Have you owned a diesel before? We have a diesel truck for our 5th wheel and love it. Wondering how you are liking it in a Jeep. I know it runs quieter than my truck.

Yes I had a 3.0l diesel Toyota Prado (pre D4), very underpowered, I have also had 2 x Mitsubishi Pajeros, one with the 3.2 DID and the newer version of the same engine which was common rail, both were quite good and economical, the Jeep though is in a league of its own, on a recent 800km round trip from my home to country NSW town of Junee it returned a fuel reading of 7.1 litres per 100km, quite outstanding for a 2.5 tonne car that had only done approx 1500km, makes me wonder if it will possibly get even better, all that aside though I am extremely happy with all the features especially considering it is the base model, I think Jeep has a few upgrades though in the export Laredo because it came STD with tow hooks, headlight washers, 18"wheels, etc along with all the other STD options, cant wait to get it on the beach and do a bit of fishing, all the best.
