Re: Jeep Cherokee Questions

what about official fuel economy numbers for both i-4 and v6?

Will they break out the fuel economy for trailhawk separately from the regular cherokee. I expect fuel economy will be a bit worse...

Re: Cheapest 2014 Diesel You Can Get

Of course I can live with the extra amenities! But, it's the CASH I can't live without.

The only affordable diesel in the US remains the Jetta TDI and it sells like hotcakes. Why can't...

Angry Cheapest 2014 Diesel You Can Get

I am pretty interested in the diesel Grand Cherokee, but I am not interested in a super-luxury SUV. According to the information Milius posted earlier this year, it looked like you could get a...

Re: Cherokee vs Competitors - Price & Stats.

Nice chart. Your Chevy equinox fuel economy numbers are for the 4-cyl engine. The V-6 AWD gets a much more 16 city, 23 highway, and 19 combined.

These days I won't even look at a vehicle if the...

Re: 2014 JEEP Cherokee KL- Reveal...pics...specs etc!!!!!!

I didn't like the front end when it was first revealed last month. I still think the headlights are funky and the tailgate has a bit too much blank metal.

BUT, now having seen the Trailhawk and...

Re: 2014 performance - 0-60 ???

If it is a truck that gets to 60MPH in less than 8 seconds, I call that fast. I know that isn't fast like an SRT8 or Porsche Cayenne, but those are absurd frankenstein vehicles for people with too...

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee KL - Features & Changes

The 245/65-17 would be suitable for a light offroader. There are plenty of AT tires available in that size, so they got one thing right.

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee KL - Features & Changes

When I first saw the new Cherokee the appearance of that front end shocked me a bit. I am not a big fan of the front end. Otherwise it looks half decent, and I must admit, I am not wincing as much...

That's what you get for selling an automobile that is shaped like a brick...a pretty darn cool brick, but a brick nonetheless.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - MPG? Let the speculations begin!

Usually the fuel economy numbers quoted in press releases are for 2WD versions of pickups and SUVs. Subtract 1 or 2 MPG from that number for a 4WD version.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - MPG? Let the speculations begin!

20 MPG highway is no longer acceptable. Also, I suspect real world highway (75 MPH) economy for the V8 is closer to 18 MPG. Finally, 13 MPG city is completely unacceptable to me. Add your optimistic...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - MPG? Let the speculations begin!

I will believe 25 MPG on the V6 when I see it. Right now it is highway rated at 23MPG, I think. With that said, if it does hit 25MPG and the Diesel is below 30MPG, I think the big difference will...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - MPG? Let the speculations begin!

Urea is sprayed into the exhaust during operation, so the presence or absence of a urea system should have no practical impact on fuel economy.

I disagree that it MUST get 30MPG to be...

Power Take-off for things like winches and snowplows.

Compressor for automatically inflating/deflating tires while in motion.

Re: How do I not be a "mileage nazi"?

There are three reasons all those miles are bad:
1) cost of gas and maintenance
2) Consuming lots of oil: negative impact on environment and more money sent overseas to bad people

Re: GC CRD with 8-speed?

The new transmission may have the same 5th gear ratio as your old one, but the transfer case or the differentials may have different ratios resulting in a lower RPM at high speed.
