The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has been recently taken to a controlled environment where it was put to the already famous moose test.
The updated version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee has been “placed against” the already famous moose test and, as you probably remember, the 2012 model year almost rolled over in the Teknikens Varld’s moose test, but how did the 2014 model year behave? Well, for starters, the SUV went up on two wheels and, thanks to the traction control system, which now kicks in really early, the vehicle has been slowed down.
“At 71 km/h (44.1 mph) the car reaches its limit, the car cannot master more than that. But it is a good result for a SUV vehicle, no doubt about that. It is also a clear sign that Jeep understood the seriousness of the previous generation’s severe flaws and did something to it”, wrote Teknikens Varld in its report.
The tested SUV was a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0 CRD, which rolled on summer tires and weighed 2,949 kg (6,501 lbs). You can check out the moose test with the popular American SUV in the video posted below. The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has been officially unveiled back in 2013, during the NAIAS in Detroit, and the model in question is actually a facelift and not a new generation.
