Test Drive of the new Jeep Grand Cherokee 2011 V6 Pentastar

Jeep is now selling on the Europeean market the next generation Grand Cherokee 2011.

Test Drive of the new Jeep Grand Cherokee 2011 V6 Pentastar
The new care is made in USA and has all the right stuff to really compete with the Europeean cars like the new Land Rover Discovery.

Unde the bonnet the american car has a new V8 Pentastar engine that has a medium fuel consumption of only 11 liters for each 100 km.

This 11 liter is the same like the old Mercedes diesel engine of 218 hp. In a town like Bucharest the diesel Grand Cherokee had a medium fuel consumption of 15 liter. The new V6 Pentasar is a petrol engine and eats only 16 liters!


Inside

The tested version of Overland's standard keyless entry and starting, the car but still get the "key", which is in addition to the logo are indistinguishable from those of Stuttgart, including a typical end for insertion into the opening Mercedes dashboard.

In the Grand Cherokee but absolutely true, so the release (by pulling the handle), locking (KEY) and start (button next to the steering wheel) is not disgusting, it bypasses the key and do not have to think about him. Just do not go anywhere slide.

Here, however, the reservation expires. The interior is in addition to space in all directions is dominated by the quality of workmanship and materials, which surprised all the skeptics, and unsettles the Korean Orthodox followers of German premium brands at least to force the lifting of the eyebrows.

So first things first: they are soft plastics, real wood trim, leather steering wheel, door panels and seats on the look and feel of quality and display it reminded of the game for ZX Spectrum +.

I glance in the tables indicates that the comrades from the U.S. about a serious mistake done: get the volume of 3.6 liter 216 kW power, even at 6,400 min -1 is still very common in the U.S. only just Sun Modern DOHC engine has variable timing on both inlet and exhaust valves! Unit is coupled with the age-old five-speed automatic production of the MB, but this seemingly incongruous combination is capable of 2.2 tons of curb weight on paper only consume 11.6 liters per 100 kilometers.

Engine-Chrysler Pentastar: a new six-cylinder technique

Button to start the engine behaves well mannered for a hard winter and almost zero noise desert after just two minutes into the heated cabin air. The engine just as normal and no murmur starts from the intersection does not compel him to zařvání. Torque 520 Nm in the prospectus, not only calms - the vast majority of the maneuvers is enough and find the optimal transfer is also part of the time. Although no race is held, but overtaking is very dynamic forces abound.

At a constant speed of 130 km / h the engine spins at 2800 rpm fifth grade -1 and equal consumption of the highway has exactly 10 liters per 100 kilometers. Jogging in city traffic still on fire consumption of three liters, lehkonozí members of the editorial staff were able to ride off the highway outside with osmilitrovou consumption - but would like to save Grand Cherokee few.

We commend the good measureable brake assist and stability ESC - the first to protect us from unnecessary loss of traction for slippery surfaces and the second in our imple ice plate saved the neck and car importers. Despite a rather abstract management knowledge is driving a more pleasant than the previous generation. Credit for this has independent rear suspension on víceprvkových hinges, which supersedes the rigid axle. Croup nearly neodskakuje inequality, despite the significantly greater comfort cushioning.

The lack of solid axles as well as a fully self-supporting body, although at the expense of battery life when riding tough terrain, but the rest of the equipment for driving in very bad conditions sufficient. System Quadra-Trac II offers over standard power transmission to the rear axle transfer up to 100% of power to the front axle. Button while you can include gear reduction 2,72:1. Rotary dial on the center console allows configuration engine, gearbox, chassis, traction control and ESC according to the current surface in five modes: automatic, sport, Sand / Mud (sand / mud), Snow (snow) and Rock (rock).

The practice was simple: because quality winter tires on the ground, we did not even bother with the mode switch, let alone the rank reduction. Jeep just stubbornly digging snow from all the pitfalls that we got him out of the way prepared. While screaming engine, differentials, muttered, but it went all the time, albeit slowly. On the contrary, when driving on normal roads, we clearly felt the electronics responds rapidly to oversteer skid and start engaging in the game the front wheels.
