Design of Jeep Grand Cherokee
The Jeep Grand Cherokee has an EcoMode helping the vehicle shift accordingly and giving the ability to turn off engine cylinders to save on gas when the extra power is not needed. This comes in handy because not everyone needs a powerful V-8 all of the time. There is also Engine Stop-Start technology which shuts the engine off when the brake is depressed. This technology is fully controllable and when using it on board systems are not affected. The engine roars back as soon as the brake comes off and the vehicle accelerates again. This feature will increase fuel conservation in the long run. Another technology feature is something called Exhaust-Gas Recirculation, changes in the setup and timing of the valve lifting system and the promise of reduced gas usage. The Grand Cherokee's power steering is now electric which also helps in fuel management. The Grand Cherokee in 2016 brings with it four available 4x4 systems, Quadra-Lift air suspension and Selec-Terrain traction management that help bring performance and drivability to the forefront. With the Selec-Terrain it automatically handles the power-train settings for the terrain (Sand, Mud, Auto, Snow, and Rock.) The Grand Cherokee has a well-known interior with features that harness technology, ergonomics and craftsmanship. The steering wheel comes wrapped in leather and the wheel is made with three open spokes for ease in seeing the center gauges. Amongst these gauges is an instrument panel that is fully colorized and fully interchangeable to allow for the driver to see information important to them. Another available option is a 5-inch or 8.4-inch touchscreen display complete with available Uconnect technology. Cloth seating is included in the Laredo and leather seating is on board of the Limited.
