2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Calgary – Review and Pricing

by Admin on February 21, 2012

Looking for a little adventure in your life? The 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers you the option to get away from the grind and get a little down time to enjoy life. This mid-sized SUV offers plenty of space for multiple travelers, a decent price point and many trims to find the Jeep that best suits your needs.

No drastic changes are found between the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee model and the new 2012 model but that doesn’t mean you don’t have anything to look forward to in the 2012 model.  A few upgrades to mention are the improved fuel economy and the more available options for trim levels.

The performance of the 2012 Grand Cherokee is definitely “Jeep like” with the available V8 option and a drive-mode selector (“Selec-Terrain”) can tailor the powertrain and suspension for specific types of terrain. The interior is another story to tell. Luxury and passenger comfort much like what is found in BMW and Lexus are found in the 2012 Grand Cherokee. It is the best of both worlds, the perfect blend of getting to play but feel pampered at the same time.

The Grand Cherokee features a  robust cabin with a cleanly styled dash, tight seams, high-quality materials and consistent compositions from floor boards to sunroof. You can feel like a “high roller” without having to dish out the cash or start wearing rather large gold jewelry.

Be mindful of what you are looking for in an SUV. The 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee is no means the Trail Rated behemoths like the Wrangler. This is the crossover in a different sense, the crossover from off-road to just paved road. The Cherokee can hit the off-road, but not the same capability as some other Jeep vehicles.

The capability of the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee is nothing to be joked about. Even though the models come with an automatic transmission, there is an option to manually operate by a pair of nicely placed paddle-shifters that feel premium to the touch and engage with authority when you want full control.

If you are wondering how you will be able to park this brick-like machine, there is no worry. There is a backup camera and rear parking sensors. This way you won’t be messing up any bumpers.

The list can go on forever when it comes to driver and passenger comforts that bring this mid-sized SUV into a class of its own, but sometimes fewer words have more of an impact.

The available engine options are:

    • 3.6L Pentastar V6 with automatic: 290 hp and 260 lb. ft torque
    • 5.7L HEMI V8 with automatic: 360 hp and 390 lb·ft torque
    • 6.4L HEMI V8 with automatic: 465 hp and 465 lb·ft torque

That is the basics of the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, just a brief introduction to the possibilities of your next SUV. Now all you have to do it take the chance and start with a test drive. Be careful, this little wonder can to lead to side effects of heart racing, palm sweating and the tendency for the muscles on your face to contract and pull your lips away from your mouth.
