Jeep Grand Cherokee
For 2010, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is available in Laredo and Limited models. Jeep Grand Cherokee features a standard 3.7-liter V-6 engine which delivers 210 horsepower (157 kW) @ 5,200 rpm and 235 lb.-ft. (319 N•m) of torque @ 4,000 rpm. An exhaust-gas recirculation valve improves fuel economy.
The optional 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 with Variable-valve Timing (VVT) generates 357 horsepower (259 kW) and 389 lb.-ft. (520 N•m) of torque. The HEMI’s fuel-saving Multi-displacement System (MDS) seamlessly shifts to smooth, high-fuel-economy four-cylinder mode when less power is needed and to V-8 mode when more power is in demand. The MDS system optimizes fuel economy without sacrificing vehicle performance or capability.
