2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee



EPA Mileage Estimates (City/Highway/Combined Cycle): 15/20/17

MPG = 12.7

Trim Level: Laredo 4X4, Trail Rated, V-8 (the ?Smaller of 3 V-8s)
EPA Vehicle Class: Specialty-Purpose Vehicle / SUV-4WD
Engine: 4.7L Pushrod V-8, Rated at 235hp and 295 ft-lb torque
Transmission: 5-Speed Automatic with Torque Converter, and 4-Wheel Drive with Low-Range
Average Speed: 26 mph
Time Driven: 0.7 hours
Miles Driven: 19.7
Weather Conditions over 1-day: Clear and Humid
Driving Style: Average Urban
Location Test: San Antonio

Conclusion: This is one of the benchmarks for poor FE and useless vanity. I apologize to the readers for having rented it. It was a new model that was not previously tested.

Plus/Minus:

- MPG
- Weight = off the charts
- 90%+ of owners don't use it for its intended purposes
- Handles like a Brick

+ Interior Amenities and Luxurious Comfort
+ Very Strong Power/Torque, towing up to 2700 lb.
+ 4X4 Ability and "Trail Rated" Off-Road prowess (if it?s EVER used)

Editor?s Notes: If you're visiting or a regular member of this site, don't even consider renting, driving, buying of even thinking about this vehicle UNLESS you live in Antarctica, on a Farm, or work for the Park Service. Even then, consider a similar, much more efficient vehicle, or the smaller, V-6 engine ? better yet, wait a year or so for the Diesel engine option to arrive.

Conclusion: Sigh, Ugh, and that funny noise Snoopy makes when he?s frustrated.
