Development

[edit]

The Grand Cherokee's origins date back to 1983 when American Motors (AMC) engineers were

designing a successor to the smaller Jeep Cherokee (XJ).[3] Three outside (non-AMC) designers Larry Shinoda, Adam Clenet, and Giorgetto Giugiarowere under contract with AMC to create and build a clay model of the Cherokee replacement, then known as the "XJC" project.[4] However, the basic design for the Cherokee's replacement was well under way by AMC's inhouse designers and the 1989 Jeep Concept 1 show car foretold the basic design.[5] The Grand Cherokee was the first Chrysler-badged Jeep product. Development work for the new model continued and Chrysler employees (after the 1987 buyout of AMC) were eager for a late1980s release date; however, CEO Lee Iacocca was pushing for redesigned Chrysler minivans, thus delaying the Grand Cherokee's release until late 1992 as an Explorer competitor. Unlike the Explorer, the Grand Cherokee utilized monocoque (unibody) construction, whereas the Explorer was a derivative of the Ranger pickup with a separate body-on-frame. The Grand Cherokee debuted in grand fashion at the January 1992 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan. Then Chrysler president Robert Lutz drove Detroit mayor, Coleman Young, up the steps of Cobo Hall and through a plate glass window to show off the new vehicle. Sales of the 1993 model year Grand Cherokee began in April 1992. [6] Production of the Grand Cherokee started shortly afterward in the purpose-built Jefferson North Assembly in Detroit, Michigan, United States. European Grand Cherokees are manufactured in Austria by Magna Steyr. [7]

ZJ (19931998)
The ZJ models, manufactured from 1992 to 1998, originally came in three trim levels: Base, Laredo, and Limited. The Base model offered core features such as full instruments, cloth interior, a standard five-speed manual transmission, while soon gaining the moniker SE name in 1994. Creature comforts like power windows and locks were not standard equipment on the SE, although conveniences like these were finally included in 1995; a somewhat contrasting pricetag with minimal production numbers resulted with low consumer demand and dropping the now-uncommon bare-bone model forever. Additional standard features of note for that time included a driverside air bag and four-wheel anti-lock braking system (ABS). The Laredo was the mid-scale model (essentially becoming base model after 1996), standard features included added body cladding power windows, power door locks, and cruise control; exterior features displayed a medium grey plastic lower body paneling and five-spoke aluminum wheels. The Limited was the premium model, with the lower body paneling being the same color as the vehicle color. The Limited also boasted standard features such as leather seating, optional power sunroof, mirrors, seats, and remote keyless entry system; heated mirrors, and heated seats, a basic onboard computer; and waffle-like cast aluminum wheels. The Country version was also offered between 1993 and 1997. They were generally painted "Champagne Pearl" or

In 1995 the performance of the V8 engine was Curb weight I6: 3,574 lb (1,621 kg) V8: 3,901 lb (1,769 kg) upgraded to 300 lbft (410 Nm) from 285 previously. 1996 brought cosmetic changes ranging from improved body modeling (grille, bumpers), and integrated foglights; interior features added dual airbags and increased fabric quality for seating. At the same time, the "Grand Cherokee" fender emblems in the American Motors-typeface dating back to 1974 were replaced with the typeface used on other Chrysler vehicles. The AMC 4.0 L straight-6 engine, able to tow 5,000 lb (2,300 kg), was also refined, through minimal loss in power but gained more torque and presented quieter operation. Limited models that year and onward had more luxury items such as driver placement memory, remote radio control from the steering wheel, and variable assist while driving and parking. Between 1996-98, the export Grand Cherokee Laredo (marketed for Japan) had the optional Aspen package (source: The Story of Jeep).

4x4

[edit]

Four-wheel drive systems included Command-Trac, a part-time unit offering temporary 4-wheel assistance; Command-Trac was dropped from lineup in conjunction with the SE trim in 1996. Selec-Trac had the option of either full-time or part-time operation; both shift-on-the-fly Command-Trac and Selec-Trac were already available for the Cherokee, and they were adapted to the Grand Cherokee. Exclusive to the Grand Cherokee was the introduction of Quadra-Trac system with permanent all-time four-wheel assistance. This was optional on all models. Lowrange required using a manual shift lever for all three systems.

Suspension

[edit]

The Quadra-Coil suspension was standard and featured a solid axle multi-link coil spring design. By allowing the locating arms to positively control axle positions the handling attributes were improved. An available "Up Country" package was offered. The suspension package included heavier duty German made gas charged shocks installed upside down, taller coil springs and longer bump stops. Ground clearance was increased by one inch.

Awards

[edit]

The Grand Cherokee V8 was on Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best list and was Motor Trend magazine's Truck of the Year for 1993. It was also Petersen's 4x4 of the Year in 1993, 1996 (with the redesigned NV249 transfer case), 1998 (with the newly available 5.9L V-8), 1999 (with its acclaimed 2nd generation model), 2001 (with the new 5-speed transmission), and 2005 (with its 3rd generation model).

Special edition ZJs

Throughout its lifetime, there were several different "one-off" and special edition models of the ZJ. The following highlights several of these.

Jeep Grand Wagoneer (1993)


For 1993 alone, Jeep carried over the Grand Wagoneer name for a special luxury version of the Grand Cherokee with both the 4.0L I6 and the 5.2 L V8 engines, this marked the last appearance for the Grand Wagoneer in the Jeep lineup. Having all the features of the Limited, it featured a simulated wood grain body cladding, along with special Grand Wagoneer badging, and a unique leather interior. This Jeep was the most costly of the line up, and was produced in limited numbers.

[edit]

1993 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

The Orvis Edition (19951997)

[edit]

The Orvis (19951997) [9] was a Grand Cherokee Limited package that featured an exterior color scheme of Moss Green, or in 1997 the (less common) Light Driftwood, with roan red and maize side strip accents (1995). Moss Green paint accents on the road wheels (matching the moss green body color) and the special "Orvis" brand badging were the only significant exterior visual differences. In performance, the 5.2 V8 engine became standard, but was available with a 4.0 inline 6-cylinder engine. Also, all Orvis editions were installed 1996 Grand Cherokee Orvis with tow hooks and the Up-Country suspension group. However, the interior was special. Two-tone green and tan leather seats were complemented with roan red accent piping and Orvis insignia. There was a slight difference between the 1996 and 1997 years' interior compared to each other. The 1996 had a black dash where the 1997 had a tan dash, The Orvis Edition luxury trim package was optional on the Limited version, and when equipped with all the other options was the most expensive of all the Grand Cherokee versions until 1998 when the 5.9 Limited was introduced. Production numbers of the Orvis Editions are: 1995: 10,020 1996: 2,341

1997: 2,733

TSi (19971998)

[edit]

A sporty TSi model (19971999) briefly debuted, exterior features included single color body paneling, with lower indigo blue striping and TSi accent similar to that found on the Eagle Talon model. They could only be ordered in select colors, which included Black, Platinum, and Deep Amethyst. TSi packages came equipped with 5 spoke 16-inch (410 mm) alloy wheels, 225/70R16 tires, sport tuned suspension and steering, fog lights, Luxury group, featuring: "Highland" perforated leather seats, overhead computer, power 1998 Grand Cherokee TSi driver's seat and a premium sound system with steering wheel mounted controls. The 4.0 litre I6 and the 5.2 litre V8 were the only two available engines in this package. The TSi was priced between the Laredo and the Limited; however, it was comparatively unpopular and a limited number were sold.

The 5.9 L Limited ZJ (1998)

[edit]

The 5.9 Limited was a Jeep Grand Cherokee produced only for the 1998 model year, having more luxury and performance than that of the regular Limited. Chrysler manufactured nearly a quarter million Grand Cherokees in 1998. Of those, fewer than fifteen thousand were 5.9s. It housed a Magnum 5.9 LV8 engine with an output of 245 hp (183 kW) and 345 lbft (468 Nm) of torque, going from zero to 60 mph (100 km/h)in only 7.3 seconds [10] (Motor Trend measured this at a slightly faster 6.8 seconds [11] ), making it the quickest SUV available that year. The performance of the 1998 5.9 L V8 has been surpassed by Jeep only with the introduction of the 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, which housed a 6.1 L Hemi Engine. [12] The 5.9 Jeep Grand Cherokee was named the 1998 four-wheel drive vehicle of the year by Petersen's 4-Wheel & Off-Road Magazine.[13] The 5.9 Limited was available only in Deep Slate, Stone White, and Bright Platinum. Other features separated the 5.9 from the standard Limited model including:[14] Functioning heat-extracting hood louvers Revised grill with mesh grille inserts Five-spoke alloy Ultrastar wheels Black-wall tires An improved premium 180 watt, 10 speaker Infinity stereo system A rear speaker bar for additional Infinity speakers Calf-grain, soft leather seats and trim Leather door inserts Leather shift handle, e-brake and transfer case handle Enhanced faux wood trim throughout, additionally around the transmission shift handle base A full-leather spare tire cover with multiple pockets A center leather armrest in the rear seat A lower-profile roof rack that eliminated squeaking problems found on the base 5.2 L limited Molded rocker panels The Grand Cherokee 5.9 further included additional performance-enhancing features including: A stronger 46RE transmission than the 5.2 Quadratrac heavy duty NV249 transfer case

WJ (19992004)
The redesigned WJ 1999 Grand Cherokee shared just 127 parts with its predecessor (mostly fasteners). The spare tire was relocated from the side of the cargo compartment to under the floor. The two heavy pushrod V8 engines were replaced by Chrysler's then-new PowerTech. New V8 engine produced less torque than the old pushrods, but was lighter, offered better fuel economy, and provided similar on road performance figures (the 23gallon fuel tank was replaced with one of a 20.5-gallon capacity). The Inline 6 engine was also updated in 1999. A redesign of the intake manifold added 10 horsepower (7.5 kW). While other Jeep vehicles used the Mopar 5 x 4.5 bolt circle, this was the first Jeep following the 1987 Chrysler buyout to receive a wider bolt pattern: 5 x 5. A notable feature available in this generation was the automatic four wheel drive option called Quadra-Drive, which employed the New Venture Gear NV247 transfer case. This twospeed chain-driven transfer case uses a gerotor, a clutch pack coupled to a hydraulic pump, to transfer torque between the front and rear axles. The transfer case contains three modes, 4-All Time, Neutral, and 4-Lo. In 4-All Time, 100% of torque is sent to the rear axle in normal conditions. If the rear axle starts spinning at a higher rate than the front axle, hydraulic pressure builds up in the gerotor and causes the clutch pack to progressively transfer torque to the front axle until both axles return to the same speed. Neutral mode is intended for towing the vehicle. In 4-Lo, the front and rear axles are locked together through a 2.72

reduction gear ratio. The NV247 transfer case is mated to front and rear axles containing Jeep's Vari-Lok differentials. Vari-Lok differentials also use a gerotor to transfer torque between the wheels on either side of the axle. The major advantage of Quadra-Drive was that it could automatically control traction between all four wheels. It had the disadvantage that the differentials were only limited slip and depended on wheel speed difference to apply the slip-limiting clutches; only the center differential could be locked, and then only in 4Lo. The Quadra-Trac II system included the NV247 transfer case with the standard open front and rear differentials. The 45RFE and 545RFE automatic transmission in the WJ was notable. It included three planetary gear sets rather than the two normally used in a four-speed automatic. This gave it six theoretical speeds, and it would have been the first six-speed transmission ever produced in volume, but it was programmed to only use five of these ratios. Four were used for upshifts, with a different second gear for downshifts. Although five of the six ratios were used, Chrysler decided to call it a "4-speed automatic". In 2001, the programming was changed to make use of all six ratios. Rather than have six forward gears, the transmission was programmed to act as a fivespeed with the alternate second gear for downshifts. The RPM at 70 miles per hour (110 km/h) on a 545RFE is 2000 rpm, 200 rpm less than the 45RFE programming. 1999 and 2000 model year WJ owners can have their 45RFE transmission's programming flashed to enable the extra gear as both transmissions are physically the same. The 42RE 4-speed automatic remained the transmission for the Inline 6 engine. It had slight changes from the previous model Grand Cherokee. The interior was also completely redesigned in 1999. The redesign allowed for larger rear doors, and more space for rear passengers. Controls for various items like headlights, heated seats, and rear wiper were moved to more convenient locations. The electronic Vehicle Information center was moved from below the radio to above the windshield, and was standard on all 2000 and up models. Limited models included automatic dual-zone climate control. A 10 CD-Changer was also available with the Infinity Audio package. In addition to Jeep's UniFrame construction, Daimler Chrysler partnered with Porsche to further strengthen the frame.[citation needed] This was done to reduce NVH. UniFrame is an unusual construction scheme, it incorporates all of the strength and durability of a body-on-frame construction into a unitized construction. By adding stiffness and rigidity to the structure, they enhanced the ride and strengthened the network of steel beams, rails and pillars (or "safety cage") that surround and protect occupants. More than 70 percent of the underbody is highstrength steel. All Jeep Grand Cherokees feature UniFrame construction. The Grand Cherokee received a minor facelift for 2004 including round fog lamps, a lower front fascia and a new body-color matched inset grille design.

These specialty models appeared for a brief time, The Sport was slightly more equipped than the Laredo and offered a very discrete two-tone black trim interior for style. The Special Edition was introduced, priced between the Laredo and Limited, offering the same quality of the Limited, differences include the option of the 4.7 L V8 engine. The Special Edition uses the Qudra-Trac II drivetrain, which utilizes the same NV247 transfer case as the limited edition, but lacks Quadra-Drive's front and rear Vari-Lok differentials.

Special Edition came with premium interior details (Instrument cluster graphics were shared with Laredo model, did not acquire white-faced gauges from Limited model), Plush Leather seats, AMFM, In-Dash CD/Cassette along with ten-disc CD changer stowed in a well thought location in within cargo space. Special Edition Trim package from bumper to bumper was presented with a fully polished, non-textured finish. Front grille was standard issue on the Special Edition. The Overland (appropriated after the former Jeep parent, Willys-Overland) was the top-of-the-line alongside the Limited the 4.7 L High Output engine V8 debuted as the standard motor. Alongside a wealth of standard features such as plusher interior trim with "Overland" badging, mid-2003 came a revised strong black two-tone trim interior. Front and side-curtain airbags, an Infinity sound system with 10-disc changer, heated/power front seats, integrated rock rails, power sunroof, wood/leather steering wheel and 17-inch alloy wheels were also standard. The Columbia Edition offered the usual features of the other specialty models besides a strong unique two-tone interior with "Columbia Sportswear" badging, with the 4.7 L H.O. engine and GPS optional. The Freedom Edition was a modified Laredo model. Features include special badging, painted charcoal rock rails, charcoal lower-body cladding and front/rear fascias, charcoal painted wheels, silver interior accents, and optional leather seats.

Chinese production

[edit]

Beijing Jeep Corporation, Ltd. had been producing the XJ classic Cherokee since 1984, and in 2004 they bought the old tooling for the WJ Grand Cherokee when the WK was introduced for the USA as a 2005 model. After some tooling up time, the WJ was introduced in 2006 for the Chinese market as the Jeep 4000 and 4700 Grand Cherokee (for the 4.0 I-6 and 4.7 V8, inc. HO, models respectively). It was their flagship model and nearly identical to the 2004 Grand Cherokee Limited in looks and equipment, including the solid axle suspension, choice of 4wd systems, body color cladding, alloy wheels, Chrysler sound systems, and Chrysler automatic climate controls. This is unlike the XJ Cherokee that was significantly modified by Beijing Jeep for the Chinese market. As of 2010, the current model is sold in China. [18]

The all-new WK Grand Cherokee debuted in 2004 for the 2005 model year. Features available for the first time in a Jeep included Quadra-Drive II four-wheel drive, rear-seat DVD player and optional 5.7 L Hemi V8. The 3.7 L V6 engine replaced the 4.0 L Straight-6. The design still emphasizes power and luxury, with significant work done on improving noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH). However, for the first time, Jeep also emphasized on-road performance to a similar extent as the cornerstone of its brand, off-road capability. This newfound emphasis on on-road refinement led Jeep to replace the live-axle with leadingarms front suspension (found in the ZJ and WJ) with a new design: an independent doublewishbone setup like that which debuted in the 2002 Liberty. The new Jeep changed its philosophy due to what it perceived as increasing demand in the SUV marketplace for on-road performance and decreasing demand for off-road capability. The 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee made its European debut at the Euro Camp Jeep held in Ardche, France. The Grand

Notes

[edit]

-The 4.7 L High Output engine that first appeared with the Grand Cherokee Overland WJ was dropped from the current Jeep lineup. It is now used in the Dodge Dakota and Dodge Ram 1500. The 4.7 L was revised in 2008, increasing horsepower and torque to 310 hp (231 kW; 314 PS) and 330 ftlb (447 Nm) of torque. A dedicated High Output version was dropped as a result. -The WK is known as a WH in International (i.e. non-US) markets -The 5.7 L HEMI engine for 2005-2008 has slightly less horsepower than those found in the Dodge Ram or the Dodge Charger (330 vs 345) due to different engine control unit (ECU) programming . -The 5.7 L HEMI engine for 2009 and up was upgraded with Variable Cam Timing (VCT) adding 27 hp (20 kW; 27 PS) and 14 ftlb (19 Nm) of torque. -The 3.0 L diesel ceased production for North America at the end of 2008. The late production models with diesel engines are commonly referred to as 2008.5 models. They can not be stamped as 2009 models due to more restrictive diesel emissions standards.

SRT-8
An SRT-8 (Street and Racing Technology V8) version of the Grand Cherokee debuted at the 2005 New York International Auto Show. Powered by a 420 hp (313 kW) version of the 6.1 L Hemi, it also features upgraded Brembo brakes, large dual performance exhaust with polished tips (exiting out the middle of the rear), Bilstein performance gas charged shocks and modified suspension components, Mercedes-Benz NAG1 (WA580) 5-speed transmission, unique NV146

transfer case, specially designed electronic all-wheeldrive system and interior and exterior updates. A drive shaft from a diesel application, fortified Dana 44 rear differential, and 11.2" (285 mm) wide Goodyear tires in the rear (10" or 255 mm in the front) complement the performance package. The sports tuned suspension allows the Jeep SRT8 to hold 0.92 g on the skid-pad. A road test of the 2006 model by Road & Track magazine yielded a 0 to 60 mph time of 4.6 seconds and a quarter mile dragstrip of 13.2 seconds at 104.1 miles per hour (167.5 km/h). Such numbers made the SRT-8 Grand Cherokee the fastest accelerating vehicle within the SRT8 lineup (which at the time included the Chrysler 300C, Dodge Charger, Dodge Challenger and the now-discontinued Dodge Magnum), and third only to the SRT10 Viper and SRT6 Chrysler Crossfire among all SRT tuned vehicles. There is no electronic speed governor employed, leaving the top speed rev-limited (revving to redline in top gear) to 170 mph (270 km/h). [24] To achieve superior on-road handling, off-road gear has been removed to make the SRT-8 lighter. The SRT-8 uses an NV146 transfer case, which uses an electronic-applied clutch pack to transfer 0-50% of torque to the front axle but has no low-range or manual controls. The front and rear differentials are both open, with no limited-slip capability. Its ride stance is significantly lower and the front fascia spoiler gives the vehicle 7 inches (178 mm) of ground clearance. The Grand Cherokee SRT-8 was the first SRT vehicle to wear the Jeep emblem. A total of 11,775 Jeep SRT8s were produced. See also: Street and Racing Technology

Diesel
In Europe, South America, South Africa and Australia, a V6 CRD engine produced by Mercedes-Benz was available from its introduction in 2005: OM642 3.0 L CRD V6 Turbo Diesel with Variable geometry turbocharger (VGT). It produces 215 horsepower (160 kW; 218 PS) and 376 lbft (510 Nm) of torque at 1,600 to 2,800 rpm at a fuel consumption of 17 mpg -US (14 L/100 km; 20 mpg imp ) city and 22 mpg -US (11 L/100 km; 26 mpg -imp ) highway. NOTE: MPG figures are based on US EPA, European combined consumption is 27.7 mpg -imp (10.2 L/100 km; 23.1 mpg -US ).

2005 Grand Cherokee with 3.0 V6 Turbo Diesel

In North America and elsewhere this 3.0 CRD V6 was available from 2007 in "NA" but was short lived. The Mercedes sourced unit meets stringent EU4 Emission stardards without the need for a diesel particulate filter - which hampers vehicle efficiency, however - it includes a diesel particulate filter (North America only) to apparently further reduce exhaust emissions. It was not however available for sale in California or certain Northeast states, due to new stricter emissions regulations for non-commercial vehicles. Vehicles could be bought used in California and Northeast states, as the regulations only applied to new vehicles. This engine is also used in the following vehicles: UK and Europe: Mercedes B-Class, C-Class, E-Class, S-Class, ML-Class, GLK-Class & G-Wagen. Mercedes Benz **320CDI or **350CDI in some more recent models.

design is all new and has undergone testing for aerodynamic efficiency while improving ruggedness with more than 5,400 welds in the body alone, resulting in a 146% torsional stiffness (over the previous design) for improved durability and reduced

noise, vibration, and harshness.[27] Like the previous generations, the chassis is steel uniframe. Unlike previous models, the new WK2 features 4 wheel independent suspension for better on road handling. Engine choices include the all new 3.6 L Pentastar V6 and 5.7 L Hemi V8. Four wheel drive systems include Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II, and Quadra-Drive II. Optional Quadra-Lift suspension can raise vehicle's ground clearance up to 11.1 in (282 mm). [28] Lift modes include Park, Aero, Normal Ride Height, Off-Road 1, and Off-Road 2. Also new is the Selec-Terrain which has modes for Auto, Sport, Snow, Sand/Mud, and Rock. The Hemi V8 retains the Multiple Displacement System (MDS) that shuts down four cylinders in low-power driving situations. And the V8 remains coupled with the multi-speed automatic transmission which includes Electronic Range Selection (ERS) to manually limit the high gear operating range. Trailer tow is rated 7,400 lb (3,400 kg) for Hemi models and 5,000 lb (2,300 kg) for Pentastar models. [29] The 3.6 L Pentastar V6 replaces the 3.7 L and 4.7 L PowerTech engines. The 5.7 L Hemi engine was retained as the V8 option, although no Hemi badging will be used on the exterior of the vehicle. Also, the WK program code remains. Some features changes with this generation are the handbrake being replaced by a footbrake, the wiper stalk on the right side of the steering column being moved to the turn signal stalk, which also means the lights move to the dash.

A 3.0 litre turbocharged diesel V6 developed and built by Fiat Powertrain and VM Motori (with Multijet II injection[30] ) rated at 177 kW (241 PS; 237 hp) and 550 Nm (410 lbft) of torque will be offered in export markets by mid-2011. [31] The new 3.0 L CRD turbodiesel engine will also be offered in European markets as 140 kW (190 PS) low power version. [32] For the 2011 model year, the Grand Cherokee is offered in five trim levels: Laredo, Laredo X, Limited, Overland, and Overland Summit. The performance SRT-8 version will return for 2012.

SRT-8

[edit]

On April 20th, 2011, Jeep announced that the SRT8 version will be debuted at the 2011 New York Auto Show. According to Chrysler, it's the fastest Jeep ever built. It reaches 0-60 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds, with a top speed of 155 miles per hour (249 km/h). Quarter mile times were in mid-13-second range. The new Cherokee SRT-8, starts production on July-16-2011, [34] will be equipped with a 465 hp (347 kW; 471 PS) 6.4 liter Hemi V8 engine. Jeep claims the new SRT8 gets 13-percent better fuel economy than its predecessor. To keep the gas mileage respectable, Jeep has employed a new active exhaust system that lets Chrysler's cylinder-deactivating Fuel Saver Technology operate over a wider RPM band. Chrysler claims that the SUV can now travel up to 500 miles (800 km) on a single tank, while other sources estimate range to be 450 miles (720 km).

Production

[edit]

The company announced a US$1.8 billion, 285,000 square feet (26,477 m2 ) expansion of its Jefferson North Assembly plant to allow flexible manufacture of the next-generation model, as well as other undisclosed products off the same platform that was developed jointly with Mercedes (ML Chassis).

Comparativa Montero versus Jeep Gran Cherokee El poder de la electrnica


Con un empate tcnico en carretera, el ms completo en acabado y confort resulta el Grand Cherokee, y tambin el que menos consume. Por su parte, el Montero muestra un mejor comportamiento dinmico en pista, siendo tambin algo ms barato. Dos pesos pesados frente a frente. Enfrentamos en este reportaje (agradecemos la colaboracin de los responsables de TEPESA, por facilitarnos el circuito de pruebas) a dos todoterrenos muy especiales: Jeep Grand Cherokee 2.7 CRD 5p Limited contra Mitsubishi Montero Di-D 5p Intense. Aunque ya est prximo el lanzamiento de su sustituto (la versin de 2005), el Jeep Grand Cherokee sigue demostrando actualmente dotes suficientes como para ser considerado uno de los todoterreno preferidos por los usuarios. Su inconfundible diseo "made in USA", pero adaptado tambin al gusto de otros mercados como el europeo, hace del Grand Cherokee uno de los ms atractivos en cuanto a esttica se refiere. En cuanto al exterior, las ltimas versiones del Grand Cherokee incluyen un frontal caracterizado por el diseo vertical de la parrilla, que acenta la configuracin de siete ranuras registrada por Jeep. Asimismo, el frontal lleva integrados faros antiniebla circulares que evocan la tradicin Jeep y refuerzan el vnculo familiar con el Cherokee y el Wrangler. Por su parte, el Mitsubishi Montero es ms conservador en cuanto a su diseo se refiere, aunque mantiene al mismo tiempo una lnea quizs algo ms deportiva, con el emblema de la marca brillando en la calandra frontal. Su aspecto compacto se corresponde con su carrocera monocasco, que le hacen mostrarse de forma excelente tanto en campo como en carretera. Dos estilos diferentes Con respecto al apartado de seguridad, el Grand Cherokee incluye de serie airbags frontales de nueva generacin y de proteccin de cabeza. Su equipamiento se completa con detalles como alarma antirrobo y limpiaparabrisas automticos con sensor de lluvia, cinturones delanteros autoajustables de baja tensin con tres puntos de anclaje y regulacin en altura. Adems, incluye de serie climatizador automtico y asientos calefactables y elctricos con 3 memorias. En este sentido, es destacable la buena estructura de los asientos, con un respaldo ms elevado. Los reposacabezas son ahora ms Altos y pueden proteger mejor. El tacto es agradable en los guarnecidos tanto en el salpicadero como en las puertas. El Mitsubishi Montero tampoco anda cojo y ofrece doble airbag delantero, airbags laterales, sistema de control de estabilidad activo (MASC), ABS, EBD y HBB, entre otros muchos elementos. Asimismo, hay que destacar el climatizador automtico, que es independiente para las plazas traseras. Destaca su habitabilidad interior (no en vano, es uno de los todoterrenos ms amplios del mercado), y, de hecho, el 5 puertas cuenta con siete asientos. Tambin hay que resaltar su practicidad al poder, por ejemplo, esconder los asientos de la tercera fila sin restar hueco al maletero. En materia mecnica el Jeep Cherokee recurre a un motor diesel de origen Mercedes de cinco cilindros en lnea y 2,7 litros dotado de inyeccin directa por conducto comn, doble rbol de levas en culata, cuatro vlvulas por cilindro, turbocompresor e intercooler. Todo ello da como resultado 163 caballos de potencia a 4.000 rpm y un par motor de 400 Nm entre 1.800 y 2.600 rpm, 3 caballos y 27 Nm a 200 rpm antes que su rival (373 Nm a 2.000 rpm). En este caso, el Mitsubishi Montero monta un cuatro cilindros que cuenta tambin con inyeccin directa por conductor comn, turbocompresor e intercooler. Ambos montan cajas de cambio automticas de cinco velocidades, con posibilidad de manejo secuencial. En el caso del Mitsubishi, la palanca selectora muestra un funcionamiento sencillo y suave al tacto y la mayor precisin y Rapidez en su engranaje queda de su lado, ya que cuenta adems con unos acertados desarrollos. En lo referente al resto de la transmisin, en el Jeep se compone de traccin total conectable (Quadra-drive) con diferenciales progresivos en los ejes delantero y trasero, mientras que el Mitsubishi contina utilizando el sistema de

http://www.coches.net/noticias/mitsubishi-montero-versus-jeep-grand-cherokee--426-cono.aspx[27/06/2011 21:31:49]

Montero versus Jeep Grand Cherokee traccin total conectable Super Select SS4-II, que permite rodar con traccin trasera (4x2) o total (4x4) mediante el correspondiente mando elctrico situado junto a la palanca del cambio. El mencionado mando permite bloquear el diferencial central (4HLc) y engranar la reductora con el diferencial central bloqueado (4LLc). Sobre la carretera, los mejores registros quedan del lado del todoterreno norteamericano, dado que es menos pesado que su oponente. El Cherokee, rey del asfalto En comportamiento frente al asfalto, el Cherokee se muestra ms gil que el Montero. Se cie mejor en las curvas, ya que su morro entra con mayor facilidad, ayudado por un tren trasero que puede ayudar a deslizar si practicamos una conduccin ms deportiva. Eso s, cuenta con la desventaja frente al Montero de que cuando varan las condiciones del firme, ste se vuelve ms exigente en la conduccin, ya que carece de control de estabilidad; un elemento con el que cuenta el modelo japons. La mayor lentitud del Montero es consecuencia de una direccin muy desmultipli-cada, con 3,6 de vueltas al volante, lo que dificulta inscribir el tren delantero con una mayor Rapidez. Mientras, en el Grand Cherokee, la direccin con 2,7 vueltas entre topes se muestra ms rpida que la de su rival una vez inscrita en la curva, aunque al principio su guiado sea algo lento y poco preciso. Dos autnticos TT En campo, tanto el Cherokee como el Montero son dos autnticos todoterreno y muestran capacidades ms que suficientes para superar zonas muy difciles, aunque estn ms condicionados por sus suspensiones, ngulos y ruedas. El limitado recorrido del eje delantero traba en cierta medida al Jeep cuando el trazado se torna exigente, mientras que la limitada altura libre de la carrocera pasa factura a los bajos al franquear pozas profundas. No obstante, la facilidad con la que atraviesa las mismas invita a aumentar la dificultad del recorrido y no es difcil acabar arrastrando tanto la panza como el voladizo trasero del vehculo. Para ser justos, debemos aadir que el Jeep cuenta con una mejor relacin de desmultiplicacin de la reductora que su rival japons (2,7 a 1 frente a 1,9 a 1). Ello le hace bastante ms eficaz a la hora de bajar pendientes muy pronunciadas, tal como comprobamos en el circuito. El Montero se embala en demasa, y, en este sentido, el control de descenso (EBAC) no ayuda a mejorar la mayor eficacia de su rival. Sin embargo, el TT nipn s muestra un comportamiento impecable con el bloqueo central y las reductoras conectadas, momento ste en el que el control de traccin garantiza el avance por las zonas ms difciles, a causa de pasar una mayor factura a la fuerza del motor.

El sistema de traccion del Jeep es ms completo ya que cuenta de serie con tres bloqueos de diferecial, cosa que no tiene el Mitsu.y eso lo notars cuando pases por zonas realmente dificiles, por donde he subido con el Jeep, un amigo con un Mitsu no apodido y eso que llebavamos la misma marca de rueda. Si miramos el motor el 5 cilindros de Mercedes tambien es mejor en consumos y prestaciones. Yo pude probar los dos y me compre el Jeep y solo he tenido que cambiarle el aceite en las revisiones. Hay que decir que los dos son grandes coches y el Mitsu ms barato.

montero sin dudarlo! lo digo por experiencia los jeeps se rompen mucho. El montero es un hierro, tengo uno del 2001 con 160.000km i pocas cosas se le an hecho y unos 20 o 30.000km seran fuera de asfalto. Viages a marrueos tunez libia lo aguanta todo este coche. tiene unos bajos increibles i un cambio buenisimo, la unica pega es el parachoques trasero que en escalones pronunciados al bajarlos o en dunas pequeas hace de pala i se rompen las luces. es recomendable ponerle proteccion detras unas planchas a medida. MONTERO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Comparison Tests


First Place: Rock-Climbing SUVS, Size M
Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Lusty engines are big winners on these pages. The Jeep, propelled vigorously by the largest engine in the group, finished atop the ratings by a clear margin. Zero to 60 in 6.8 seconds puts this 4920-pound SUV at the front of the pack. Nothing else was close. The Hemi makes an authoritative rumble, deepvoiced and fairly loud in a reassuring way when you crack open the throttle. The five-speed automatic also earned top marks for its smoothness and quick gear selection. Photos (162) The Grand Cherokee's front seat and driving position are especially agreeable. You sit more "arms out" than in most trucks, a sharp contrast from the 4Runner and its bus-style angling of the wheel. The dash is also quite high, so your gaze needs to drop only a few degrees as it moves from road ahead to the instruments below. The hood ramps down, opening the view before you. The dash is shrewdly shaped to put the centermounted radio and HVAC within easy reach. Taken altogether, the Jeep earned top marks for ergonomics. Second-row passengers get a seat that feels plush at first, but the short cushion curves downward very early, as if created for short legs. The driveline tunnel is high, leaving less padding and footroom for an unfortunate center passenger. The Jeep is the shortest of the group, one inch shorter than the Pathfinder, 3.6 inches shorter than the big-guy Montero. The Grand Cherokee offers three different fourwheel-drive systems. The test sample had the toplevel Quadra-Drive II with high and low ranges and electronic locking differentials at the front, center, and rear. Theoretically, at least, this is an unstoppable system, more than capable of anything we attempted. Traction was never the limit in our going. We touched rocks against metal a lot, however, perhaps no surprise given the 8.0 inches of clearance, least of the group. Perhaps the relatively creamy on-road ride should have prepared us for the swishy, undisciplined suspension motions in the rough. Most bumps have a back side, too. Let down too fast coming off the back, and the suspension yo-yos downward farther than necessary. That risks banging something underneath. We see in this new Grand Cherokee a plush, fast, all-weather road car with the power and traction for incautious journeys even to Chicken Point, if you don't chicken out. Photos

Highs, Lows, and Verdict


Highs: Haul-ass Hemi, superb Quadra-Drive II, carlike driving position. Lows: We got 12 mpg, jumpy throttle off-road, Goodyear textures on dash-top and window sills. The Verdict: Truck credibility without truck rudeness.

2005 Ford Explorer vs. Jeep Grand Cherokee, Mitsubishi Montero, Nissan Pathfinder, Toyota 4Runner, VW Touareg Comparison Tests
Rock-Climbing SUVS, Size M: Destination: Chicken Point. We've got four-wheel drive, and we're not afraid to use it.
BY PATRICK BEDARD, PHOTOGRAPHY BY AARON KILEY April 2005

Pages: 1 Mother Nature started her landscaping for this comparison test 275 million years ago, when she washed a bunch of quartz sand with rusty water until the grains took on a pretty red hue and then cemented them together to form sandstone bedrock. Over the ages since, she hoisted this one-time sand pile upward by 4600 feet and set about sculpting it into a lofty lump that today's residents of Sedona, Arizona, call Chicken Point. Not that most of them get to see this particular sample of her handiwork. Mother hid it well behind a spellbinding array of other rocks, all of which seem to have more appealing names. Chicken Point is hidden but not forbidden. There's a trail Broken Arrow barely wide enough for one vehicle over most of its 2.1-mile length. Thrillseeking visitors buy a ride in the Jeeps of a local tour company. But if you have a 4x4 and are willing to risk ripping the bottom out of it, you can attempt the journey yourself. Hmm. Could we urge a six-pack of grocery getters up to Chicken Point without leaving 5W-20 slicks from savaged oil pans or embarrassing ourselves with a call for helicopter evacuation? Only one way to find out. Exactly which SUVs? First, the all-important qualifier: The vehicles must have low and high ranges. Broken Arrow is a slow-speed trek demanding plenty of ground clearance and driver expertise. The spring season has two all-new mainstreamer SUVs: the Jeep Grand Cherokee, now with Hemi power, and a Nissan Pathfinder built on Titan bones. Both have the climber's swagger. Toyota's athletic 4Runner is certainly right for the mission. The optional V-8 won't go breathless on us at altitude. The Mitsubishi Montero has intriguing offroad capability, too, including the ability to be shifted from rear drive to all-wheel drive on the fly at speeds up to 62 mph. From VW, the agile Touareg might be pulled down to popular prices if we stay with the standard 237hp, 3.2-liter V-6. We're aiming for a base sticker in the $35,000-to-$40,000 range.

What about the most ubiquitous SUV ever, 14 years as an American bestseller: the Ford Explorer? With two-wheel drive, it's as common as dandelions. Instead, we'll opt for AdvanceTrac full-time all-wheel drive and Roll Stability Control. The price? Uh, a blur of incentives lets you buy an Explorer right. And if these rebates were as predictable as, say, lunar cycles, we could pull them into our as-tested calculation. They aren't. We can't. Let's just say we welcome Mommy's favorite ballet bus to the climb, and if it can do a demipli on Chicken Point, there'll be high-fives in PTA meetings across the land. At the risk of getting all Lewis-and-Clark on you, we hired a geologist to accompany us. Inquiring minds want to know why the rocks of Sedona are red, and why does that redness stop just beyond the edge of

town?

Geologist Wayne Ranney explains rocks as if he had baked them himself. He helped us see that the red is really just a stack of layers about 1400 feet thick, situated partway up a much taller cliff. Look northeast of Sedona: The high ground is tan. Those lighter-colored layers above the red start about a mile above sea level; they covered Sedona thousands of years ago. Blame erosion? You could, or you could enjoy the carvings it leaves behind. From two fixed points just south of town they happen to be old volcanoes Ranney has calculated that Sedona's cliffscape is migrating northeast at the rate of one foot every 625 years. The relatively soft rock mostly sandstone doesn't dissolve uniformly, however. Lumps and spires are left behind for our Kodak moments the rock equivalent of slowly melting icebergs and they are christened with fanciful names like Courthouse and Bell Rock. Chicken Point is a formation still hidden in the background, biding its time as the rocks in front crumble away. In a few turns of geological time it, too, will be gone. The rocks are melting, guys. Let's roll. Continued...
