DaimlerChrysler official unveils the 2005 Grand Cherokee

Since its introduction in 1992, the Jeep® Grand Cherokee has revolutionized the sport-utility market. With best-in-class tractive capability and best-in-class power, the all-new 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee is designed, engineered and built to master every imaginable day-to-day driving condition, whether on-road or off-road.

The third generation Jeep Grand Cherokee offers improved capability and superior on-road ride and handling in a well-appointed package with a number of new premium amenities. The result is a Jeep that is all-new from the ground up, and all Jeep from the inside out.

“Whether it’s the outback or the opera that your travels lead you to, the all-new Trail-RatedTM Jeep Grand Cherokee cuts a trail no other SUV can follow,” said Jeff Bell, Vice President – Jeep. “Just as it did when it first debuted on the market, the 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee sets the benchmark for off-road capability and continues to do so for on-road refinement.”

The base Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee is $26,775, including $645 destination.  The Jeep Grand Cherokee will begin to arrive in dealerships this fall.

“The all-new 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers customers a $2,000 better value than its predecessor,” said Jeff Bell, Vice President – Jeep.  “We’ve been able to lower the price on Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo models by $1,780, while adding $300 more in content.  Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited prices are $1,000 lower for V-8 models, while providing customers with $700 more in content.”

With an MSRP of $26,775 for 4x2 models and $28,745 for 4x4 models (including destination), the Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo comes standard with a 3.7-liter V-6 engine mated to an all-new five-speed automatic transmission.

The all-new five-speed automatic transmission provides an excellent balance of performance and fuel economy.  The Quadra-Trac I full-time four-wheel drive system offers customers the convenience of full-time four-wheel drive.  The system provides for smooth operation over a variety of road surface conditions.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited comes standard with a 4.7-liter V-8 engine mated to a five-speed automatic transmission.  The Quadra-Trac II 4x4 system provides full-time active four-wheel drive, which anticipates and prevents wheel slip for optimum traction during a wide range of conditions.  It also includes the benefit of the Brake Traction Control System.

The MSRP for Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4x2 models is $32,100 (including destination), while the MSRP for Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4x4 models is $34,690 (including destination).

Other standard features on the Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited include power adjustable pedals with memory, rain-sensing automatic wipers, leather-wrapped steering wheel, electochromic interior rearview mirror, six-way power driver and four-way power front passenger seats, Infrared Dual Zone Climate Control, AM/FM stereo with six-disc in-dash CD with MP3 capability, Boston Acoustics six-speaker premium sound system with 276-watt digital amplifier and leather interior trim.

A 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine (330 hp/375-lb. ft. torque) with the fuel-saving Multi-Displacement System and five-speed automatic transmission including Quadra-Drive II and Electronic Stability Program is also available on Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited models.  The MSRP for Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited models equipped with the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine is $37,860.

No Overland edition yet.

For all the speed freaks, a high-performance (think 420+ HP) SRT version has been spotted in hot-weather testing.

When will the 5.7 Litre Hemi with Variable Valve timing be available in Melbourne Australia?
Will the new Grand when it arrives in Australia have the latest Benz Diesel engine?

Just in time for the big slowdown in SUV sales.

And... doesn't this Grand Cherokee seriously overlap with the Liberty's market?

Nice vehicle though, given that it's not going rock crawling.
