2010 Jeep® Grand Cherokee Offers On-road Refinement, Off-road Capability and Premium Amenities

2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee LimitedAuburn Hills, Mich., Sep 1, 2009  -  Since its introduction in 1992, Jeep® Grand Cherokee revolutionized the sport-utility (SUV) market. With unsurpassed traction capability and power, Jeep Grand Cherokee is designed, engineered and built to master every imaginable day-to-day driving condition, whether on- or off-road.

For 2010, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is available in Laredo and Limited models. Jeep Grand Cherokee features a standard 3.7-liter V-6 engine which delivers 210 horsepower (157 kW) @ 5,200 rpm and 235 lb.-ft. (319 N•m) of torque @ 4,000 rpm. An exhaust-gas recirculation valve improves fuel economy.

The optional 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 with Variable-valve Timing (VVT) generates 357 horsepower (259 kW) and 389 lb.-ft. (520 N•m) of torque. The HEMI’s fuel-saving Multi-displacement System (MDS) seamlessly shifts to smooth, high-fuel-economy four-cylinder mode when less power is needed and to V-8 mode when more power is in demand. The MDS system optimizes fuel economy without sacrificing vehicle performance or capability.

Jeep Grand Cherokee customers who want the assurance of full-time four-wheel drive without any switches or levers will find Quadra-Trac I® ideal. The NV140 single-speed transfer case splits torque 48/52 percent (front/rear) and is available on Grand Cherokee vehicles equipped with the 3.7-liter V-6 engine.

Jeep Grand Cherokee’s Quadra-Trac II® 4x4 system gives customers the benefit of the NV245 two-speed active transfer case and the Brake-traction Control System (BTCS).

The Quadra-Drive II® Jeep 4x4 system offers customers the ultimate in off-road capability. It combines the NV245 full-time transfer case with an Electronic Limited-Slip Differential (ELSD) for unsurpassed tractive performance.
