Jeep overland 5.7L hemi

by from Vegas on February 23, 2011

Great jeep. I can stand in the throttle and take corners at speeds like a sportscar. It's silent at idle, has a great note at around 4500 rpm and I like the instant acceleration. I pull a 5000 lb boat...
Great jeep. I can stand in the throttle and take corners at speeds like a sportscar. It's silent at idle, has a great note at around 4500 rpm and I like the instant acceleration. I pull a 5000 lb boat with great ease and it barely knows its there. The only down side is MPG blows. I have a heavy foot and get 12 city and 16 hwy

I have th 3.7 and at first I hated it. I upgraded from a 97 Grand Cherokee with the 4.0 and I felt the power was lacking. However, I have since started to like it. The trick with the 3.7 is to drive it hard. If you baby it, it does lack in power but if you drive it a little harder you start to see it does have good power. I read on the Jeep forums that the engine likes to be driven hard. The interior is comfortable and functional. I bought mine used with 46,000 miles on it and there are few little problems with the interior, mainly a squeeky back seat when its in the up position. I put larger tires on it then stock and it made a big difference. It looks much better and performs better.

I have owned this care for 3 years abd put nearly 40k on it without one breakdown of any kind. The V6 is a little underpowered and the gas mileage is disappointing though you can get close to 20 on the highway if you stay at 65. 13-14 is about as good as it gets in town. The car is quiet, very comfortable and roomly carrying 4 adults and luggage with room to spare. It has the very solid feel of a Jeep built tough enough to go off road.

I have owned pretty much every type of car and if that is not a luxury you can afford i cant imagine owning anything but a jeep. I would purchase a v8 to provide enough power if towing is a consideration, and perhaps even go with the 4x4. Jeeps make great looking cars that really perform well.

This Jeep has been great for me great power,features, 4 wheel drive is the best on the market.Also has a great aggressive look.The only thing is fuel economy not the best but I don't care much about that.You should buy a Jeep if you are looking for overall performance not fuel economy.Also had a wrangler highly reccomend both!

I have owned my 2006 Jeep for almost 3 years and I absolutely LOVE it! I have had no real trouble with it. Just routine repairs. The only issue I have is the seats were stained when I bought it (it was a rental), someone spilled coffee all over them. Cleaning them is very tough and if you drip water on the seat it leaves a ring. I'd go for leather seats with my next Jeep. Yes, I will be getting another when mine is paid off. I can't think of driving anything else.

In nearly 45 years of driving, my 2006 5.7 Jeep Grand Cherokee is simply the best car I have evered owned. It is not a "family" SUV to haul the kids about-it is a powerful, comfortable and safe vehicle that actualy meets and exceeds its design goal as a Trail Rated 4WD. From experience, I can tell you that it handles any weather and roads including snow/ice covered passes in the Rockies. The multi-dispalcement engine delivers about 18-19 in town, 22-24 on the road and has enough power to effortlessly pull a 7,000 load over an 11,000 foot pass. The 5.7 multi-displacement engine gets better actual gas mileage than its U.S. and European competitors who advertise that they do better. Don't take my word, check it out. I urge folks to test drive them all-it's what I did onver a peroid of about four months. The 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee will prove itself.
