Model Highlights

For 2009, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is available in four trim levels--Laredo, Limited, Overland and SRT8. All but the SRT8 are available in either rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, while the SRT8 is 4WD only.

The greatest distinction among the 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4WD models, other than their powerplants, may be the type of four-wheel-drive system each comes with--three are available.

Quadra-Trac I is a road-oriented system that yields full-time four-wheel drive, with torque split 48/52-percent front/rear. Quadra-Trac II adds a two-speed transfer case with low range and has a feature called Throttle Anticipate, which works to anticipate slippage and selectively applies the brakes to maximize traction. The most off-road-oriented system is called Quadra-Drive II; it uses a full-time transfer case with electronic limited-slip differentials to detect tire slip and send engine torque to the wheels with traction. It employs an electronically coupled clutch pack, and the front and rear differentials can be varied at each axle to also help maximize traction.

The base Laredo model gets the V6 and Quadra-Trac I, though the 4.7L V8 and both other 4WD systems are optional. The Limited steps up to a standard 4.7L V8 and Quadra-Trac II system, plus useful off-road aids such as hill start assist and hill descent control system. The Overland gets the 5.7L V8 and Quadra-Drive II system, plus tow hooks and skid plates on 4WD models. The turbo-diesel engine is optional on Limited and Overland.

Engines on the Grand Cherokee range include a base 210-hp 3.7L V6, an economical and torquey 3.0L common-rail turbocharged diesel V6 that makes 215 hp and 376 ft-lb of torque, a 4.7L V8 making 302 hp and 329 ft-lb, and a revised 5.7L Hemi V8 with variable valve timing, which makes 357 hp and 389 ft-lb. At the top of the Grand Cherokee ladder is the 6.1L V8 found in the SRT8. It puts out 420 hp and 420 ft-lb of torque and gets the SRT8 to 60 mph in under five seconds. Both Hemi V8s employ Chrysler's Multi-Displacement System, which cuts off half the engine cylinders during certain periods to improve fuel efficiency.

All engines are mated to 5-speed automatic transmissions that feature electronic range select shift control for more control when off-roading or trailer-towing, or on curvy roads; the Grand Cherokee has a tow rating of up to 7,400 pounds.

Each of the Grand Cherokee models get different upholstery. Laredo models have standard cloth and optional leather, while Limited models get two-tone perforated leather, and the Overland model gets saddle perforated leather seats with accent piping. A new Leather Appearance Group adds leather trim on the doors, armrests, center console, shift knob and instrument binnacle in both Limited and Overland Grand Cherokees.

The SRT8 features its own unique leather and suede treatment. Additionally, it rides on 20-inch wheels and features large performance disc brakes, lowered, sport-tuned suspension, and special badging.

The Grand Cherokee is no slouch in the standard equipment department. Although the Overland features the best bits, such as HID headlamps, heated seats in the first and second row, the ParkSense parking aid, a navigation system, a roof rack, chrome 18-inch wheels and Sirius satellite radio. A wealth of options and packages are available, including a rear-seat entertainment system, the MyGig music storage system, and Sirius Backseat TV.


Pros

Impressive off-road ability; wide range of configurations; luxurious interior; optional entertainment-system; fuel efficiency with turbo-diesel; SRT8's impressive performance; excellent warranty.


Model News

For 2009, Jeep's Grand Cherokee SUV gets a boost in the engine output. The 5.7L Hemi is improved to deliver 357 hp and 389 ft-lb of torque. Also new is variable valve timing (VVT), which improves fuel economy, and Multi-Displacement System, which shuts down half the engine's cylinders during certain periods further improve fuel efficiency.

A new Leather Appearance Group is standard on Limited and Overland models and includes leather trim on the doors, armrests, center console, shift knob and instrument binnacle. The Laredo model now includes a soft-touch center armrest cover, leather-wrapped parking brake, and chromed interior door handles and audio control buttons.

The high-performance Cherokee SRT8 receives upgraded leather and a bigger DVD screen.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee pairs a comfortable, luxurious interior with impressive off-road ability, and in top trims gets enough high-tech conveniences to compete with the most luxurious sport utility vehicles. The top-of-the-range Overland model is a true rival to some of the top luxury brand SUVs, while the 420-hp 6.1L Hemi V8-powered SRT8 delivers world-class performance.

Summary
Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2005-2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles manufactured February 11, 2004, through March 9, 2010; and 2006-2010 Jeep Commander vehicles manufactured January 31, 2005, through March 10, 2010. A transfer case electrical failure may result in an unintentional shifting of the transfer case into the neutral position.

Consequence
If the vehicle shifts into neutral, it may roll away increasing the risk of a crash or personal injury.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will reflash the final drive controller which governs the transfer case, with new software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N23.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
