2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel For Sale | Mississauga, Brampton
Posted on October 30, 2018 by
On a recent road trip, our motel parking lot in Blanding, Utah was a veritable Jeep fashion show, complete with canyon-crawl mud-splatters and all-business off-roading tires. Every trim was accounted for, for hundreds of highway miles from Iowa to Colorado, through Utah to California. It’s the same in Toronto, Mississauga, Oakville and Brampton, in Hamilton and Barrie, look around: Jeep fever is equally strong here in Ontario. With wild winter on her way, we invite you to sample our current 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel inventory. The Grand Cherokee was tailor-made for winters in Canada. Here’s why.
When you’re looking for a comfortable SUV with backroad-loving 4x4 toughness, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is front of mind. Air suspension and unibody construction come together in this family-friendly SUV that keeps on delivering on the highway and on those Ontario backroads we love to explore. Need to tow your favourite toys to the cottage or down south to warmer climes? With 3500 kg of braked towing capability, you’re more than good to go. And Jeep throws in heated AND cooled leather-dipped seats, with a giant menu of active safety features to make this diesel dynamo a joy to drive.
Those all-ages backseat drivers in your life will enjoy rear air vents, dual USB ports (to match the count up front) and back rake adjustment for heated seats that are very comfortable. On your way to hockey, swim, or skating practice at 7 a.m. in deepest, darkest February? Cozy heated back seats might diminish the whining—although we make no guarantees. In the storage department, the Grand Cherokee hatch is ample: generous depth, extra compartments (rather than mere extra space around the—yep—full-sized spare wheel) under the floor, and a 60:40 split-fold rear seat backs flips easily with one motion, stowing the rear headrests and leaving you with a reasonably flat load space. The powered tailgate is another popular inclusion.
Enjoy the 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, a tasty upgrade over the 7.0-inch version in the base Laredo models. CarPlay and Android Auto mirroring come for the ride, along with sat-nav and nine-speaker 506-watt Alpine audio and a subwoofer in the cargo area wall. Drivers love the large, clear reversing camera with guided lines, a serious helpmate in busy parking lots in the GTA.
Like its in-cabin appointments, the Grand Cherokee Limited diesel is a mover. It offers up a heady 180kW/570Nm from its 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 through an eight-speed and a switchable 4x4 system featuring selectable high- and low-range and Jeep’s Quadra-Trac II traction smarts. On a personal note, the Selec-Terrain system with its five-mode (Auto, Snow, Sand, Mud, Rock) surface tuning has been very recently roadtrip-tested in Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah and California hill country with awesome and very helpful response.
Some other impressive credentials: SUV comfort that comes with air suspension married with unibody construction, and height-adjustability for maximum ground clearance (260mm) or low-lying (40mm below normal) ease of cargo loading. The engine certainly has some juicy power when you need it, and if you like to hear your throttle working for you, this cat’s a tigress.
Whether you’re flying along the open road, or knocking to-do’s off your list of errands at warp speed, the air suspension gives great compliance over large bumps. (Wait for our report on braving the notorious topes—speed bumps—of Mexico!) Towing with this gem is a breeze with the anti-sway control in charge. The Limited trim loads up with scads of standard safety equipment not available on the Laredo, including forward collision and lane-departure warning systems, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and advance brake assist (collision-mitigating AEB), while also bundling in active cruise and parallel/perpendicular parking assistance. Safety-strong with seven airbags, it's also five-star ANCAP rated.
Warranty packages are really quite awesome with this model, and you can talk with your friendly dealer about options and customizations. This is a good match for those of you seeking comfort and glory to go with your gutsy backroad climber.
