2014 Grand Cherokee OFF ROAD (video)

Wanted to share this video with my fellow jeep owners. 2014 Grand Cherokee off road test. Damn, I should have gotten 4wd.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee OFF ROAD (video)

Driving finesse be damned, apparently. Almost high centered? Just wail on the throttle until something grips!

Makes me want to go 4-wheelin'. Especially with my new Toyo Open Country AT-IIs.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee OFF ROAD (video)

Good to know my 20" wheels/tires can handle the off road!

...and a set of rock rails wouldn't hurt either.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee OFF ROAD (video)

The video created no new impressions of the car. I've taken mine off-road and I was thoroughly impressed with the car from first hand impressions.

However I am impressed with the idiocy of the driver, especially when it comes to going uphill and over crests at an angle. I'd rather be high-centered than rolling over if I absolutely had to go over that elevation.

I do not think the Jeep in the video is a Quadra Lift -equipped car. Look at the wheel articulation on mine.

Meh, what do you expect? It was filmed in Russia...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee OFF ROAD (video)

Nice to see the Jeep take on what seems to be like a clueless idiot driving and still come through.

Anybody else laugh at him using the blinker to pull into the ditch?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee OFF ROAD (video)

One thing is for sure. The driver has no clue about off road driving. Notice him smashing the passenger rocker when he high centered in his ditch manuver? Not much of an off road test.
