2012 Jeep Cherokee

Who would have thought that the former army jeep will become a luxury 4×4?

Cherokee and Grand Cherokee (the second has a 12 cm longer wheelbase) have four-wheel drive and are well prepared for any terrain and conditions.

When the engines are different alternatives: 6-cylinder, V8 typical American or European markets intended for turbo motors. A little Cherokee best fits its 4.0-liter six-cylinder engine, which is mounted at the outset of the proceedings and over the years has repeatedly modified. It has plenty of power for each life situation calmly and with it you can make American-style cruises. But this bill goes salt: it consumes not less than 14 L/100 km. 5.2-liter V8 (in 1997-1999 5.9 l) at Grand Cherokitata afford even two liters more, but compensate for this with its maximum torque.

Introduced in 1999 4.7-liter engine uses less, but its maximum torque is not large. Relatively frugal turbodiesel engine can be described as really good.

The car is easy to drive. Even at high speed, and small and large Cherokee moving steadily forward, overcoming turns and bumps in a way that credible. We should not forget the incredible qualities in the role of tugs. The permissible load in the most powerful version of the Grand Cherokee can reach respectable 3.5 tons!

As for comfort, the great Cherokee are typically filled with American luxury equipment. Air conditioning and cruise control are understood by itself. With top models, produced in limited edition, leather seats are further heated or cooled through sensors and mirrors are adjusted automatically to the driver.

ABS-systems and airbags have entered Cherokee SUV gradually. In 1993, Big Brother begins with Anti block system and airbags for the driver. Airbag to place it appears at the beginning of 1996 to the modernization of the two models. From 2001 to the start of production of new small and large Cherokee Grand Cherokee get side airbags.

The statistics of the problems does not speak in favor of a friendly symbiosis between the driver and his Cherokee. From a financial point of view can be recommended 2.7-liter diesel Mercedes. Who buys a 5.2-liter gasoline V8, possibly managed station.

Pros: + good ride quality, highly relevant in difficult terrain, easy to manage

Cons: – a relatively small space in the cabin, uncomfortable seating position, very high fuel consumption uneconomic

The most common injuries in Jeep Cherokee

Motor: Up to 1998 problems with cylinder head and gaskets, and pump in the cooling system

Comments from owners of Jeep Cherokee

I have such a Cherokee and very pleased with it. But it has its drawbacks, such as fuel consumption by 10 to 12/100 km. Another is the high cost of parts and supplies but this applies to all brands of SUVs. If you like a Jeep Cherokee did not think was very good. According to others here 2.5TD engine is not correct because it is very cumbersome and tryadva be careful not to overheat. But I was not my case and so far I’ve had no problems with the engine temperature and drive it for a second year.

I think it’s a nice machine! Well depends on what you will go, there will be new. For this money can be found and 98 -99 s. I think the newer the better. But it’s good to have advance information from someone who is exploiting such a machine which is weak and places and what to watch.

2 years driving this SUV and the only thing I do not like is that in more dynamic driving overheated brake discs and in particular front. This problem is only with me because I had a problem with blocked tsilindarche brake, but once warmed up it got better again.
Motor e VM, not MB without means nothing. There are many colleagues who are super happy with the diesels that manufacturer. Moreover, when the VM is created for a long time was now part of Chrysler, and subsequently op DaimlerChrysler and it can be expected that some of the engineers thought the Germans is embedded in these motors. 2.5 and 2.8 are quite similar from what I’ve read while still quite new to have an objective opinion about their quality. College is pleased with his, at least from my conversations with him I left with that impression. So – so far nothing bad we can say about this bike! On other topics Points opinion is subjective, and there is a lot written. Success.

Otherwise I drive this Cherokee 2.8CRD with automatic transmission and NV242 fulltime. and can share their personal experiences. Comparing it with my other car – Renault Scenic 1.9dCi, I can say on the comfort that is different. More noisy and has a firmer ride. Even in the beginning I thought that sounds and accelerates from standstill like a truck. Diesel fuel is about 12, 12.5 l / 100 km. in the city and about 8 km 8.5 l./100. outside the city. However, this is expected of him – is still to some extent offroad road machine rather than a minivan. However, comparing it with other SUVs I’ve had the opportunity to drive or ride, and those of my colleagues and friends, I can say that the cost and comfort at a decent level, its brakes are very good. There are very good acceleration when moving out of town and overtaking acceleration from 60 to 100 and 80 to 120, 130 km / h is very “clever” and can accelerate quickly and overtake safely. This is not the case for many other such machines. Also a speed of 120 130 km / hour peace of mind and felt a loud noise, roar of the engine and is quite comfortable in this mode. I.e. no problem traveling a long time without being tiring. Gone specific “Whitey” especially when the rear axle through uneven and relatively comfortable journey. There is some shaking when passing through successive bumps, sometimes next to the left, then the right and a little speed.

Then swore a bit and throwing, but this is normal for such a machine. Probably comfort Grand Cherokee is larger, but still Liberty May be kept compact SUV and shorter and narrower than him. I have some remarks acceleration starting in the city, when you need to quickly turn in heavy city traffic. Early machine is a little sluggish and need to ponatisna throttle to turn over rapidly approaching car, and this increases the demand. Here are my comparisons with Renault Scenic-but it is a lot easier and there all these razdatki, differentials, etc. I can say that now at low temperature / -10, -18 / fired without any problems, heating is much shorter than the atmospheric old diesels, engine running stable since the beginning. Also, I noticed that the heat much faster. There is a built in electric heater small circle cooling system and hence the automatic transmission. Only necessary after a cold start letting it run for a few minutes, place lip service holding brake switch gears a few times back and forth. For faster heat the oil in the box. For its offroad capabilities, I can not tell you who-knows as otherwise. I have tried it a few times lighter offroad grass, just mud and now snow. Behaves decently, have good handling and directional stability mode 4×4 fulltime. When driving 4×4 LO manages to go a lot of places but no lift and tires allterrain M + S, there can be no question of a more serious offroad mode in the mud. Otherwise, I’m fascinated by sustainable behavior now in the snow, especially in the frost yesterday and today. The car barely felt what I move, but I can not get off to keep up. Furniture and

ergonomics of the cabin are at a decent level, but with electronics I’ve never had any problems. Sorry for very long post, but I tried to describe the most impressions. Greetings!

And I myself the proud owner of a 2.8 full Time. I bought it somewhat the way a friend almost new. So for 5 years. About 150,000 km or a visit to the service. It is quite eloquent. Come to think of myself not another car or have a friend that has not visited warranty service. My consumption has not changed in that time and summer was 11.5, 13.5 urban winter. Dynamics is the same 180 kmh them up. A rare winter draws in some snow tires with good December For the moment, just smooth car.
