Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Hemi

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is the vehicle that single-handedly started the SUV revolution. With its rugged off-road capabilities and on-the-street comfort, it was just a matter of time before the powerful Hemi engine would dominate a Grand Cherokee’s engine bay. When the combination was made in 2005, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited also commonly referred to the “Hemi Grand Cherokee”, an instant classic was born.

In the 2005 model year Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, the 5.7L Hemi engine was a powerful option that produced 330hp and 375 ft-lbs of torque. This was quite an upgrade from the 4.7L powertech V8 engines, that where the next option below the Hemi. This was an engine that screamed power for consumers that upgraded their Grand Cherokee, the noticeable difference in power was felt from the first time you stepped on the throttle.

If the 5.7L option was not enough to satisfy a power hungry Jeep Grand Cherokee enthusiast, the 2006 model brought even more power underfoot for Grand Cherokee drivers. In 2006 Chrysler made the 6.1L Hemi engine available in the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. Packing an astonishing 425 hp and 425 ft-lbs of torque, the SRT8 catapulted the Jeep Grand Cherokee into the front of the high-performance SUV market. No other mid-sized SUV can compare to the combination of shear explosive power of the 6.1L Hemi engine and the comfort of the Grand Cherokee’s well appointed interior.

For consumers considering a Jeep Grand Cherokee that had a Hemi, but did not want the high end price tag of an SRT8, Chrysler upped the horsepower of the 5.7L Hemi in 2009. The 2009 5.7L Hemi engine jumped from 330hp to a tire smoking 357hp and the torque rating also increased from 375 ft-lbs to 387 ft-lbs. This made a potential Jeep Grand Cherokee owner jump for joy as the added horsepower to the 5.7L brought a significant increase to the vehicles overall performance.

With all the increase in power, the one downfall to the Jeep Grand Cherokee was gas mileage. As the gas prices soared, sales of the Hemi powered Jeep Grand Cherokee suffered. If gas mileage is not a concern and the blissful combination of raw horsepower and superb comfort are drawing you towards a Hemi powered Jeep Grand Cherokee, head over to EBay, find your Jeep and take the family to a steep mountain and enjoy the ride.
