Hello, I'm new here, but this is my 3rd Jeep! Started with an '07 Compass, then to a '13 Patriot, now I'm the proud owner of a 2010 Grand Cherokee. This is a real step up from both others I've owned, but I really needed a step up, mainly for one reason. The towing power of my Compass with a 2.5 engine lacked, and my daughter did a number on the front end. Then the Patriot with a 2.0 lacked power even more, but was affordable. This GC has a V-8, 5.7l and once I add the hitch, will be able to tow nearly any trailer or camper I can find! Can't wait to take it out!
