Hi all, I'm new. I'm an 18 year old male. I'm wanting to buy a Jeep Grand Cherokee but I have a few questions about them. I'm looking to buy one 2000 or newer.
1. Is it possible to get it in a regular 4x4 (as in you drive it in 2wd and put it in 4wd as you please).
2. I am looking into the 4.7 liter v8, is this a good choice?
3. What are some thing you do or do not want on one?
4. What is the mileage on different models?



  • ***Also what models come with positive traction while in 2wd
    I know on some Jeeps they have a thing that bogs the motor down if the tires start spinning. I DO NOT want that. Which models/years do I need to stay away from to not have that.

    have a homemade one on my suzuki samauri hepls get a little more zip out of th 1.3 motor but as for gas milage not so hot get bout 3 miles per gal more
    the test that the others run is slanted as they run the test car slower than you will drive and on a flat serface so dont have to pull hills or stop at stop signs
    did have have to emission test my samauri and lowered my imissions some what
    look on the net have lots of places that give you help with out costing you $$
