Surrounded by legendary Jeeps spanning from a WWII-era Willys to the Rescue concept vehicle, the all-new 2005 Grand Cherokee made its debut. Crawling onto the stage over a dirt course set up in the Camp Jeep pavilion, the SUV was immediately recognizable as a Grand Cherokee. The modern styling announces the evolutionary step forward, with improved 4x4 systems, increased passenger comfort, improved road manners, and new engine availability. Three full-time 4WD systems will be available, starting with Quadra-Trac I with a single-speed transfer case for simple operation. Quadra-Trac II features the new NV245 transfer case facilitating full-time active four-wheel drive, which anticipates and prevents wheel slip for optimum traction during a wide range of conditions. It also features a true low-range gear and a neutral mode, to allow the vehicle to be towed. Quadra-Drive II uses electronic limited-slip differentials to achieve the ultimate off-road package. To improve off-road ability, the suspension offers more travel than on the previous Grand Cherokee. On-road performance is heightened with available hydraulic-controlled active stabilizer system and Electronic Stability Program (ESP). Engines include the 3.7-liter V-6 shared with the Liberty, carryover 4.7-liter V-8, and mighty 5.7-liter Hemi V-8. Inside, new premium amenities include GPS Navigation radio, rear seat DVD, Boston Acoustics audio, UConnect hands-free communication system, Smart Beam, and Rear-Park Assist. The 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee will be built at the Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit, with production scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2004.
