The engine offers up to 30 percent improvement in fuel economy, class-leading torque, outstanding towing capacity (7,400 lbs.) and class-leading driving range (approximately 425 miles).

The 3.7-liter V-6 engine provides the 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a powerful standard engine that is efficient, durable and smooth. It produces 210 hp (157 kW) @ 5,200 rpm and 235 lb.-ft.

For 2007, the Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 4.7-liter V-8 engine is flex-fuel capable. This feature gives customers the ability to use up to an 85 percent concentration of ethanol (E-85) to fuel their vehicles. The engine produces 235 hp (175 kW) @ 4,500 rpm and 305 lb.-ft.

The engine gives the Grand Cherokee best-in-class power, while 90 percent of the engine’s peak torque is available from 2,900 rpm through 5,100 rpm for excellent performance. The engine features the Multi-Displacement System (MDS), which deactivates four cylinders when the V-8 is not needed. Chrysler Group was the first manufacturer to offer fuel-conserving MDS in an SUV.
