- For 2004, Jeep Grand Cherokee gives customers even more options than before by expanding to five models: Laredo, the new Special and Freedom Editions, Limited and Overland.
- The new Special Edition model has the monochromatic exterior design cues of the Limited model. Four-wheel drive Special Edition models also include fog lamps, Quadra Trac II® transfer case, AM/FM/Cassette/10-disc CD with Infinity® speakers and a Special Edition badge.
- New for 2004, Grand Cherokee is offered with a new factory-installed Navigation Radio for the first time.
- This new system combines a 4.9-inch full-color display, AM/FM Stereo, CD Player and navigation system that uses DVD technology all in one unit.
- The 4.7-liter PowerTech™ V-8 High Output engine is rated at 265 horsepower (198 kW) at 5100 rpm, and 330 lb.-ft. (448 N•m) of torque at 3600 rpm. The High Output 4.7-liter engine is standard on the Overland model and available on the Limited.
- The 4.7-liter PowerTech V-8 and the High Output 4.7-liter engines are mated to the 5-45RFE five-speed automatic transmission, which provides a second overdrive gear for increased highway fuel efficiency and quieter engine operation at highway speeds.
- The powerful 4.7-liter PowerTech V-8 engine produces 235 horsepower (175 kW) at 4800 rpm and 295 lb.-ft. (400 N•m) of torque at 3200 rpm. The standard 4.7-liter engine is available on Laredo and Limited models, while the 4.0-liter PowerTech I-6 engine is standard. The 4.0-liter I-6 is rated at 195 horsepower (145 kW) at 4600 rpm and 230 lb.-ft. (312 N•m) of torque at 3000 rpm.
- Jeep Grand Cherokee models are available in both two- and four-wheel drive. Four-wheel drive Laredo models feature the Select-Trac® full-time transfer case with low range.
- Available for 2004 on the Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo is the Quadra Trac I transfer case, which is a derivative of the award-winning Quadra-Trac II transfer case. The Quadra-Trac I single-speed transfer case offers simplicity and convenience for those customers who do not tow heavy loads. There is no need to shift levers; Quadra Trac I will respond automatically when there is a loss of traction.
- The Quadra-Trac II on-dem and transfer case with low range is standard on the Special Edition and Limited models and optional on Laredo. The Quadra-Drive system, which combines the Quadra-Trac II transfer case with Vari-Lok® axles, is able to send nearly 100 percent of the developed engine torque to just one wheel for outstanding capability both on- and off-road. Quadra-Drive® is optional on Limited and standard on Overland.
- The Quadra-Trac II transfer case incorporates a progressive, speed-sensing torque transfer coupling. Vari-Lok axles use a progressive, hydro-mechanical speed-sensing torque transfer coupling in both front and rear differentials. Combine them both for an unbeatable Quadra-Drive system.
- Jeep Grand Cherokee is manufactured at DaimlerChrysler’s Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit.
We'll post the info for the Liberty and Wrangler in the next couple days.
