In addition, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has an adjustable ride height feature, one for park (getting in and out), another for normal driving, and another for offroad driving. When in park mode, the height is automatically adjusted to 6.2 inches, in normal driving mode, the ground clearance is 8.1 inches, and for offroad driving, the suspension can be raised to 10.7 inches. This is all due to a new state-of-the-art Quadra-Lift air suspension system. Furthermore, the bottom of the vehicle is fitted with steel skid plates to protect the undercarriage from being damaged by debri when offroading. Adding to the wonderful offroading experience of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, is the fact that when Jeep did the redesign in 2011, its engineers added a whooping 5400 new welds! This increased body rigidity during offroading by 147%. Toping all this off is a standard 3.6 liter V6 engine that puts out 290 horsepower and 263 pounds of torque. You can also choose to have a 5.78 liter V8 that puts out 350 horsepower and creates 293 pounds of torque.
Now folks, what more could you ask for? Like really?! Do you think there is anything more that you could ask for? The only thing that you could do is go to your nearest Jeep dealer and ask for yours today!
