2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee ReviewSep 27th, 2012
The unique element which puts the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee above the competition is its unibody chassis construction. This manufacturing element allows this SUV to have a lower fuel consumption, smoother ride, a crumple zone for safety and it is lighter than a body-on-frame design. New for 2012 is improved fuel economy and added trim options.
The mechanics under the hood of the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee are supreme. The combination of the awarding Pentastar engine and the suspension system, chassis and massive wheels makes for a high performance machine which can handle any road. There are five different models to chose from: Laredo E, Laredo X, Limited, Overland and SRT8.
