2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Page 1

The '07 Grand Cherokee picks up the Overland designation for its top model, with base Laredo and Limited trim levels also offered. The standard engine in the Laredo remains the 3.7-liter, 230-horsepower V-6 with the 4.7-liter V-8 and a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 optional. The 5.7-liter engine features cylinder deactivation technology to boost fuel economy. The high-performance SRT8 version that appeared last year carries over with its fierce 6.1-liter version of the HEMI V-8 and 415 horses -- enough to propel the SUV to 60 mph in around five seconds. Its chassis and four-wheel-drive systems are upgraded to handle the added power and provide a firm handling, precise ride. The SRT8 also gets specific 20-inch wheels and high-performance tires. All engines come with five-speed automatic transmissions that include manual-shift capability. Stability control and a choice of three full-time four-wheel-drive systems are offered, including the top Quadra-Drive II system that employs electronic limited-slip differentials for added off-road capability.
