Merchants Auto Reviews the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee

June 19th, 2017 by

While other affordable SUV makers were still thinking about making a premium two-row SUV, Jeep was already doing it. That is why the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a bit ahead of its time. You will find Grand Cherokees and other used Jeeps Manchester NH at Merchants Auto.
Better Than Ever
When it was released, critics hailed this edition of the Grand Cherokee as better than ever. They like its well-trimmed and roomier interior. Suddenly it was considered a leading contender. The higher class amenities and top material quality made it a good buy at all trim levels. Exterior standards include lightweight alloy wheels, foglights and automatic headlights. Interior standards include a tilt-telescopic steering wheel and six-speaker stereo system. An auxiliary jack is also standard, but many editions also have a USB port, Bluetooth, HD Radio and a touchscreen. Common upgrades include a power drivers seat, a rearview camera, and heated front seats.
Performance and Handling
The 2012 edition has been praised for its on-road handling. Improved steering helped the V6 improve fuel economy by 1 mpg. Many of the changes have been credited to its partnership with Mercedes-Benz, making a smoother ride and a more powerful one as well. Showing its Jeep side, the Grand Cherokee also rates highly for its off-road capability when equipped with a four-wheel drivetrain. The V6 generates 290 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Like every good Jeep, the engine can harness the torque at lower revs, enabling it to accelerate more quickly.
