2006 Grand Cherokee Overview

The 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup features two new models, the luxurious Overland and the high-performance SRT8.The Grand Cherokee was completely redesigned for 2005, and is bigger, more modern, and more powerful than previous versions of this iconic, midsize SUV.

The edgy, angular body is devoid of cladding and is proportioned differently from earlier Jeeps.It looks new and contemporary, but people instantly recognize it as a Grand Cherokee.

Interior materials are dramatically improved over the previous generation's, which left much to be desired.The atmosphere inside the latest Grand Cherokee is light, comfortable, and more enveloping than the previous model; from the driver's perspective it's more bolted in than hanging on, with lots of seat adjustment, excellent outward vision around relatively slim windshield posts, and with all the switches and controls clearly labeled and easy to find and use.In back is nearly 70 cubic feet of cargo space.

A more sophisticated suspension gives the current Grand Cherokee much better handling than that of pre-2005 models, with less leaning in corners, along with better ride quality.Its turning radius is tighter, too, good for crowded parking lots.

All four available engines are modern.The 5.7-liter Hemi V8 is particularly good for towing or driving at higher elevations.The SRT8 has a 420-hp 6.1-liter Hemi and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than five seconds.The smaller, 4.7-liter overhead-cam V8 works quite well, however, and the standard overhead-cam V6 is a big improvement over Jeep's old overhead-valve inline-6.

Overall, 2006 Grand Cherokee retains the rugged spirit of the Jeep brand, combined with engineering and quality control closer to the Daimler-Benz tradition.
