Looking Back at the Jeep Grand Cherokee
The Grand Cherokee has always known how to make an entrance. Debuting at the North American International Auto Show in 1992, it was shown in a beautiful Poppy Red Clear Coat paint job. Bob Lutz, president of Chrysler at the time, showed off the Grand Cherokee’s capabilities by driving it up the steps of Detroit’s Cobo Hall and through a plate glass window. All while the city’s mayor sat in the passenger seat.
Jeep wanted to show that it could create more than just the most capable SUVs, but that the growing brand could compete with even the most high-end SUV makers. To do this, features such as leather seating, heated mirrors, power seats, and a keyless entry system were added to the Limited trim of the brand new Grand Cherokee. While these are considered basic features today, they were considered premium back in 1993.
Sales of the Grand Cherokee started out strong, with more than 250,000 models being sold in many of the early years. But it wasn’t until 1999 that the vehicle had its best year, thanks to a major redesign that gave the offroad-ready SUV a more stylish exterior.
By the time 2005 rolled around, the Grand Cherokee had supplanted itself as one of the best SUVs on the market. Not to be outdone, however, Jeep began offering a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine in the premium SUV. Normally reserved for big pickup trucks and muscle cars, the Hemi allowed Jeep to offer something unique to truly separate the Grand Cherokee from its competition.
To this day, Jeep’s largest SUV is still one of the best bargains on the market. With a stunning look, luxury options, and better capabilities than ever before, there’s simply no reason for any Colorado Springs driver to choose another vehicle over a used Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Reasons to Buy a Used Jeep Grand Cherokee
Now that you’re a little more familiar with the history of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you probably want to know exactly why it’s worth buying used from The Faricy Boys. We’re always happy to discuss our love of Jeep with customers, but to save time here are a few reasons to fall in love with a used Grand Cherokee.
Power and Capabilities
Most SUVs produced today are based on entry-level sedan platforms. While this leads to comfortable and quiet rides, it also means that they lack power and capabilities.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is not like most SUVs today.
While newer models are much more sophisticated than older generations, it hasn’t lost its roots as a rough and tough offroad-ready SUV. The 2011 and later models feature a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that produces 290 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, the same standard engine you’ll find in RAM trucks and Dodge’s Challenger and Charger muscle cars.
Upgrade to the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 model and you’ll find 360 hp and 390 lb-ft. of torque at your disposal. You won’t find that type of power available in many other similarly-priced SUVs, and they most certainly won’t come with one of Jeep’s award-winning 4×4 system.
The Grand Cherokee can hang with the best offroading vehicles right out of the box thanks to its trail-ready 4×4 systems. Using Jeep’s Selec-Terrain technology, you can instantly switch between driving modes based on terrtain. Options include auto, sport, snow, sand/mud, and rock.
Luxurious and Feature-Packed Interior
The Grand Cherokee’s power and capabilities aren’t the only thing that separate it from other SUVs today. Its spacious, luxurious, and feature-packed interior also does a great job of proving that it’s a cut above the rest.
It all starts with the seats. Available Nappa and Capri leather trim provide the Grand Cherokee with an even more upscale look and feel, especially when coupled with the heated/ventilated seat option. This small addition allows Jeep to offer a level of comfort that is normally reserved for high-end luxury vehicles.
The optional 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen system is one of the largest and most-advanced dashboard systems available in an SUV today. Able to control everything from radio and media to climate and navigation, Jeep has pulled out all of the stops to give Grand Cherokee owners the best driving experience.
For those looking to enhance everyone’s experience in the Grand Cherokee, though, you’ll want to find a model that featured the CommandView sunroof. The large, dual-pane class sunroof allows for plenty of light, heat, and incredible views for passengers in the back. And thanks to a power sunshade, you can choose when it’s too hot, or for long road trips when everyone’s looking to get comfortable for a nap.
Each used Jeep Grand Cherokee features a unique set of options that provide you with more while allowing you to save money. Take a look at The Faricy Boy’s inventory online for a deeper look at the options available in each of our available Grand Cherokee models.
There’s no beating around the bush on this one: the Jeep Grand Cherokee is an expensive car. That’s what makes it Jeep’s top-of-the-line offering. For many of you, I’m sure buying new is out of the question simply because your budget doesn’t allow for it.
That’s what makes a used Grand Cherokee so appealing here in Colorado Springs. You can find plenty of off-lease models, including those that are just a few years old, and save big.
But you’re not just saving on the base model, you can pick up a bargain when you find a model that’s loaded with many of the features mentioned above. This allows you to get a vehicle that not only feels and appears brand new for a fraction of its original price.
Best part of all? The bulk of the depreciation happens in the first few years, so your used Jeep Grand Cherokee will retain much more of its value throughout your ownership than it otherwise would have if you had purchased it new.
