2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0L CRD (Diesel) Review

Date 2008/3/9 10:31:18 | Topic: Grand Cherokee

MotorTrend recently reviewed the 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee CRD and was "underwhelmed":
I think it's just suboptimally integrated in this Jeep. Rock-crawlers demand easy throttle tip in so as not to inadvertently leap over boulders and obstacles, and that long accelerator travel (and a high-effort return spring on the accelerator) heighten the impression of mass. I also find it strange that the stump-pulling diesel gets drastically shorter transmission gearing than its peakier gasoline V-8 stablemate. Usually it's the other way around. Taller gearing would make it seem a lot less "shifty" at low speeds, and would probably improve fuel economy.
