Jeeps were legendary off-road vehicles long before the term SUV was even coined, but in recent years the company has realized that most SUV consumers could care less about actual off-road ability. So with that in mind, the redesigned 2005 Grand Cherokee brings a newly-refined tarmac disposition. Suspension has been overhauled to improve on-road comfort and reduce body lean, and an electronically controlled Quadra Drive II four-wheel-drive system now better controls wheel slippage. Plus, you guessed it, it's got a Hemi. An available 5.7-liter 325-hp Hemi V8, to be exact, which has the ability to conserve fuel in non-strenuous driving circumstances by operating on only four cylinders. You can also expect more substantial body panels, as well as a more upscale interior.
