"The first Jeep Grand Cherokee created the luxury sport-utility market," said Jeff Bell, Vice President-Jeep about the best-selling SUV from Jeep. "Since then, many very strong competitors have intensified the full-size SUV market. Yet, none have matched Grand Cherokee's combination of legendary Jeep 4x4 capability, on-road refinement, technological innovations and safety features."
These are the words of Jeep's Vice President as it hits more than 3 million in sales since its debut in 1992. From then on, there is no turning back; Jeep Grand Cherokee lived up to its name with a level of comfort, ride and handling previously missing in most sport-utility vehicle, and was the pioneer for introducing a driver's side air bag to an SUV.
Jeep Grand Cherokee sales in March 2005 were 18,828 units, pushing sales to 3,013,296 units since it was in the market in 1992. The 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the best among the pack. Its best features are three new full-time four-wheel drive systems, two new transfer cases, all-new independent and front suspension, rack and pinion steering, and an all-new five-speed transmission.
The 2005 Grand Cherokee was the first Jeep vehicle available with the 5.7-liter HEMI(R) V-8 and the Multi-Displacement System. MDS imperceptibly deactivates four cylinders when the V-8 is not at work.
Its exterior is marked with the Jeep brand's signature seven-slot grille, round headlamps and trapezoidal wheel openings. Chrome, gated automatic shifter and a two-tone instrument panel with an easy-to-read instrument cluster and well-crafted seats accent the new interior
Safety features include Electronic Stability Program, SmartBeam(TM) headlamps that automatically and quickly adjust high-beam brightness and intensity, All-Speed Traction Control System, advanced multi-stage air bags with an Occupant Classification System and Anti-lock Brakes System.
