The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel sports powerful drivertrains, and an all too familiar great performance level. However, there are a few elements that puts this vehicle above its competitors for more than two decades. It continues the tradition of excellence and the 2016 model is now made even better than ever. It has new efficiency-enhancing features with a touch of technology here and there.
The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel is Better Than Ever
There are different powertrains available for the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel. For the standard model, it will be equipped with Chrysler’s 3.6-liter gasoline V-6 engine or the optional 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 one. The optional engine is for drivers that want a bit more “oomph” in their power, as this is able to boost performance level to 360-horsepower (240 for the standard model) and 390-pound-feet of torque (420 on the standard).
Beyond all the performance changes lies a sweet cabin inside the 2016 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel. Inside there are high-intensity discharge headlamps, a wood-trimmed steering wheel, open-pore wood trim, and premium Natura-Plus leather seating surfaces with heated and ventilated buckets. Furthermore, to make sure that you rock out to your favorite music, you will enjoy a 19-speaker 825-watt Harmon Kardon sound system which is also included in the standard model and at no additional charge.
The car’s performance brings a tremendous low-end grut since there is a compression-ignition engine that is found between the front fenders. When you put your foot down the right-most pedal, hang on as the EcoSiesel will take a deep breath then it will shove you like a large bouncer from a nightclub.
To multiply the twists on this vehicle further, there is a well-mannered eight-speed automatic transmission that improves fuel economy. This will allow four-wheel-drive variants of the 2016 model of the Grand Cherokee to hit 28 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg city.
When it comes to the negatives for the EcoDiesel, there are only a few of them. For instance, there is a little drivetrain choppiness which can be felt at idle times. Also, the car’s vigor will taper off noticeably when its velocity increases. However, there complaints are irrelevant most of the time as the benefits of performance and fuel economy can topple these downsides any day.
The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel continues a tradition that has been proudly seen throughout the years but with very welcoming changes. Simply put, it is better than ever as it adds more tech, luxury, and features than ever before.
