2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel For Sale | Toronto, Mississauga
A recent trip along curving, mountain roads in Colorado, Utah and California was, quite honestly, a daily parade of Jeep vehicles. In fact, the parking lot at our Blanding, Utah motel was a Jeep Wrangler fashion show, complete with canyon-crawl mud-splatters and all-business off-roading tires. Every trim was accounted for, for hundreds of highway miles. In Toronto, Mississauga, Oakville and Brampton, in Hamilton and Barrie, look around you on the roads: Jeep fever is equally strong. With winter on her wild way, we invite you to sample our current 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel inventory The Grand Cherokee was tailor-made for Canadian winters. Here’s why.
When you’re after a comfortable SUV with backroad-tough 4x4 capability, the Jeep Grand Cherokee comes immediately to mind. Air suspension and unibody construction unite in a family-friendly vehicle that continues to deliver on the highway as well as on the backroads of Ontario. Need to tow some toys to the cottage? With 3500 kg braked towing capability, you’re good to go. The carmaker throws in heated AND cooled leather-dipped seats and a giant menu of active safety features to make this diesel damsel one to watch.
The backseat drivers in your life can 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 February? Heated back seats may cut back on the whining. Storage wise, the hatch is quite 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 a popular inclusion.
Enjoy an 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, a sweet upgrade over the 7.0-inch version in the base Laredo models. CarPlay and Android Auto mirroring come with, along with satellite navigation and nine-speaker 506-watt Alpine audio complete with a subwoofer in the cargo area wall. Drivers love the large, clear reversing camera with guided lines.
Like its in-cabin appointments, the Grand Cherokee Limited diesel’s motivational prowess stacks up. 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 power when you need it, and if you like to hear your throttle working for you, this doll’s the real deal.
On the open road, or knocking around town doing errands, the air suspension gives great compliance over large bumps. (Wait for our report on braving the notoriously tall 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 lots 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. Kitted out with seven airbags, it's also five-star ANCAP rated.
Warranty packages are quite pleasing with this model, and you can talk with your dealer about options and customizations. This is a good match for those of you who want comfort and a little gutsy glory on the backroads.
