At our Jeep dealer serving Manchester, the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers three 4×4 systems: Quadra-Trac I®, Quadra-Trac II® and Quadra-Drive II®.
Quadra-Trac I delivers full-time four-wheel drive without any switches or levers to pull. The system provides smooth operation over a variety of road conditions. This lightweight single-speed case is both proven and highly efficient for enhanced fuel economy.
Quadra-Trac II's two-speed transfer case actively manages torque and uses input from a variety of sensors in order to determine tire slip at the earliest possible moment and take corrective action. The system uses Throttle Anticipate to sense quick movement in the throttle from a stop and maximizes traction before slippage occurs. When tire slippage is detected, as much as 100 percent of available torque is instantly routed to the axle with the most traction.
Quadra-Drive II, with a rear Electronic Limited Slip Differential (ELSD), delivers industry-leading tractive capability. The system instantly detects tire slip and smoothly distributes engine torque to tires with traction. In some cases, the vehicle will anticipate low traction and adjust in order to proactively limit or eliminate slip with the ability to transfer up to 100% of available torque to one wheel.
Each Grand Cherokee features the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine. This engine delivers an impressive 290 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque.
All 4×4 models see improved fuel economy ratings of 13 miles per gallon city and 20-mpg highway (up from 13/19). 4×2 models retain their 14/20 rating. Trailer-tow capability of up to 7,400 lbs. is available with the 5.7-liter V-8 engine.
The available 5.7-liter MDS V-8 engine delivers 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,250 rpm. The 5.7-liter V-8 also features VVT, which delivers performance and towing capability, and fuel efficiency with fuel-saving MDS. The MDS seamlessly alternates between smooth high-fuel-economy four-cylinder mode when less power is needed and V-8 mode when more power from the 5.7-liter MDS engine is requested. This optimizes fuel economy when V-8 power is not needed, without sacrificing vehicle performance.
New for 2012, the 5.7-liter MDS V-8 engine is mated to the 65RFE automatic transmission that allows the driver to choose between six-speeds when shifted in manual mode. This allows for better performance and everyday drivability with improved efficiency.
The Grand Cherokee wasn't just built for performance. With over 45 safety and security features and a variety of entertainment options, Manchester Jeep drivers and passengers will love spending time in their Grand Cherokee.
Standard safety features include electronic stability control, electronic roll mitigation, four-wheel anti-lock brake system with rough-road detection, four-wheel brake traction control system, remote keyless entry, express up/down windows for driver and front-seat passenger, seat-belt pretensioners and Trailer-sway Control.
