Part of the family.

I've always thought of Jeep owners as rugged individuals destined for picturesque locations only found by traveling miles of dirt roads, fording rivers and traversing rocky hillsides. Maybe it's in light of Jeep's popularity in the off-road market, or maybe it's just those clever commercials.

At first glance, however, the 2000 Grand Cherokee doesn't fit that image. Sure, the profile is a bit more muscular than competitors such as the Lexus RX300, but it's nothing compared to the hard right angles of its siblings, the Cherokee and Wrangler. But, despite its demure looks, owners of the Jeep Grand Cherokee can experience both off-road adventure and sybaritic luxury, thanks to a recent renovation that brings the Grand Cherokee even closer to the top-drawer utes.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee was redesigned for the 1999 model year; the 2000 models have minimal changes. As with previous years, the Grand Cherokee is available in Laredo and Limited versions, with a 195-horsepower, 4.0-liter, in-line six-cylinder engine coming standard in both models. Both two-wheel and four-wheel drive versions are offered on the six-cylinder, which has 12 overhead valves and a sequential, multi-port electronic fuel injection system. Standard towing capacity is 2000 lb and goes up to 5000 lb with the optional towing package.

The optional 235-horsepower, 4.7-liter V-8 engine is now available in the two-wheel drive version, beginning with this model year. The 4.7-liter features a single overhead cam with 16 valves and electronic fuel injection. Although the standard towing capacity is 2000 lb, an optional heavy-duty towing package makes the Grand Cherokee capable of towing up to 6500 lb with the 4.7-liter engine.

Both engines are mated to a four-speed automatic transmission, although the transmission for the V-8 engine has dual second gear. During acceleration, the higher ratio second gear is used to provide better launching capabilities, while the lower ratio is activated when kicking down from third to second gear to provide greater power over a broader range. Initial acceleration is also improved with a 3.00:1 ratio for first gear.

Previously, rear-wheel drive was exclusive to the six-cylinder Grand Cherokees. With the 2000 models, owners can choose rear-wheel drive or between Select-Trac or Quadra-Trac four-wheel drive systems, regardless of which engine they choose. Selec-Trac, which provides either part-time or full-time four-wheel drive modes, is now offered on the V-8 as well as the six-cylinder. The Quadra-Drive system comes with the Quadra-Trac II transfer case and Vari-Lok progressive front and rear axles. Quadra-Drive will transfer nearly 100 percent transfer of torque to one wheel, allowing the vehicle to regain traction, even when all other wheels are stuck. All of the Grand Cherokee four-wheel drive systems are usable on dry pavement.

The live axle Quadra-Link suspension absorbs road bumps and holes well, making the overall ride smoother than many SUVs in its class. Its front and rear stabilizer bars and gas-charged shock absorbers contribute to solid handling, both on- and off-road under a variety of conditions.

Creature comforts on the Jeep Grand Cherokee are plentiful, particularly on the Limited version. Both models come with a tilt wheel, cruise control, a split folding rear seat; power windows, mirrors and door locks; a roof rack and a theft-deterrent system. An overhead console contains a trip computer, compass and outside temperature gauge as well as map lights. The Limited Grand Cherokee adds dual climate controls, new, softer leather seating and an upgraded stereo with CD player among other features. The 10-way power front seats on the Limited offer driver-side memory linked to the seat position, driver's side mirror and radio. Nice touches include automatic dimming on the driver's side and rearview mirrors, automatic headlights and universal garage door opener.

Overall, the 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers owners the best of both worlds - rugged off-road capability that you'll need at Camp Jeep packaged with all the creature comforts you'll enjoy on your daily commute.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.

Original Warranty  help
Original Warranty
An original warranty is the warranty associated with a vehicle when it is brand new. In addition to the original warranty, select items, like tires, are typically covered by respective manufacturers. Also, an act of Federal law sometimes provides protection for certain components, like emissions equipment.
The original warranty is often broken down into multiple sections, including:
Basic Warranty:
Typically covers everything except for parts that wear out through normal use of the vehicle. Examples of non-covered items are brake pads, wiper blades and filters.
Drivetrain Warranty:
This warranty covers items the basic warranty does not protect. Wear and tear items such as hoses will not be covered, but key items like the engine, transmission, drive axles and driveshaft often will be.
Roadside Assistance:
The level of service differs greatly with this warranty, but many manufacturers offer a toll-free number that helps provide assistance in case you run out of gas, get a flat tire or lock your keys in the car.
Corrosion Warranty:
This warranty focuses on protecting you from holes caused by rust or corrosion in your vehicle's sheet metal.
Please check the owner's manual, visit a local dealership or look at the manufacturer's website to learn more about the specifics of the warranties that apply to a vehicle.

Basic 3 Years/36,000 Miles
Drivetrain 3 Years/36,000 Miles
Corrosion 5 Years/100,000 Miles
Roadside Assistance 3 Years/36,000 Miles

Jeep Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.

7-Years/100,000-Miles (whichever comes first). Powertrain Limited Warranty runs from the date vehicle was sold as new.

3-Month/3,000-Mile Maximum Care Warranty. Starts on the date of the CPOV sale, or at the expiration of the remaining 3/36 Basic New Vehicle Warranty.

A deductible may apply. See dealer for details or call 1-800-677-5782
Age/Mileage Eligibility Model Years 2010-2016 With Less Than 75,000 miles
Lease Term Certified No
Point Inspection 125
Return/Exchange Program No
Roadside Assistance Yes
Special Financing Yes
Transferrable Warranty Yes
Warranty Deductible $100
