Jeep® Reveals Redesigned 2022 Grand Cherokee | Toronto, ON

The midsize Grand Cherokee SUV has been an iconic part of the Jeep® lineup since the early ’90s, offering the ideal blend of capability and luxury. Jeep® recently revealed details regarding the redesigned 2022 Grand Cherokee, making it the most advanced version yet.

New technology

The cabin of the 2022 Grand Cherokee is getting an upgrade in the form of the new Uconnect® 5 infotainment system. This innovative tech comes with an expansive 10.1-inch display with faster operating speeds as well as seamless over-the-air updates. In addition to the standard touch-screen display, an available 10.25-inch front passenger interactive display is a new option for the Grand Cherokee. And in the back, available 10.1-inch rear seat entertainment displays with built-in Amazon Fire TV make long trips even more enjoyable.

More capability

Jeep® vehicles are known for being exceptionally capable. As such, the 2022 Grand Cherokee offers three versatile 4×4 systems for off-roading: Quadra-Trac® I, Quadra-Trac® II, and Quadra-Drive® II. Additional capability comes in the form of the class-exclusive Quadra-Lift™ air suspension, which provides a class-leading 28.7 cm of ground clearance and 61 cm of water fording. Meanwhile, the available 5.7-litre V8 offers an impressive 3,625 kg of towing capability.

First-ever Grand Cherokee 4xe

Like the Wrangler, the Grand Cherokee will be available with a plug-in hybrid powertrain. The Jeep® Grand Cherokee 4xe is estimated to provide 40 km of all-electric range as well as 4.1 Le/100 km. Even with this incredibly efficient powertrain, the Grand Cherokee 4xe still has the capability you’d expect from a Jeep®. The PHEV is expected to generate 375 horsepower, 470 lb-ft of torque, and have a max towing capacity of 2,720 kg.

These are just some of the highlights of the 2022 Jeep® Grand Cherokee. For more details, contact our team at Downtown CDJR in Toronto, Ontario.

AutoGuide Names Chrysler Pacifica the 2021 Family Vehicle of the Year

AutoGuide Names Chrysler Pacifica the 2021 Family Vehicle of the Year | Toronto, ON

AutoGuide is a trusted source in the automotive world, providing the latest news and reviews to help consumers buy cars. For its 2021 list of the best vehicles to purchase, the publication named the Chrysler Pacifica the Family Vehicle of the Year.

What made the 2021 Pacifica a winner was its combination of safety, style, roominess, and practicality. AutoGuide editor Kyle Patrick noted, “The Pacifica is the latest evolution of the origins of the species. This made-in-Canada people-mover carries the spirit of the original Caravan, loaded with practical, family-friendly features.”

Indeed, the Pacifica is an ideal family vehicle and has been for years. But the 2021 model brought with it some impressive updates like the inclusion of available all-wheel drive, a new top-of-the-line Pinnacle trim with lush caramel leather and throw pillows, and the revised Uconnect® 5 infotainment system with improved graphics and multiple user profile capability.

Then there’s the Pacifica Hybrid model, which is equipped with many of the same features as the gas-powered Pacifica but houses a 3.6-litre Pentastar™ VVT V6 hybrid engine under its hood. As a result, you can go further for longer thanks to a 51-kilometre all-electric range and a combined driving range of up to 835 kilometres.*

No matter which Chrysler Pacifica you choose, you can trust that you’ll be getting behind the wheel of a reliable family vehicle. If you’d like to take one for a test drive, stop by and see us at Downtown CDJR in Toronto.

Jeep® Wrangler Earns Canadian Black Book Best Retained Value Award

Wrangler retained value in Toronto, ON

The Jeep® Wrangler is more than just one of the most easily recognizable vehicles in the world – it’s also one of the best at keeping its value. It’s no surprise that the Wrangler recently earned a Canadian Black Book Best Retained Value Award for the 12th year in a row.

The Best Retained Value Awards honours vehicles that have retained the greatest percentage of their original MSRP over the past four years. This program, which has been around for 14 years now, helps consumers decide what vehicles will hold their value better, reducing the total cost of ownership.

“We’re incredibly proud to again accept this award from Canadian Black Book for Best Retained Value,” said David Buckingham, President and CEO, FCA Canada. “Jeep® Wrangler resonates with consumers in both the new and pre-owned market like few other vehicles can, thanks to a unique combination of rugged good looks, unmatched capability, and the offer of open-air freedom.”

For 2021, the awards looked at cars and trucks in 23 categories with the Wrangler earning the top position in the Midsize Crossover/SUV category. It previously competed in the Compact Sport Utility category, but was realigned to this new one because the majority of Wranglers sold in Canada are the four-door model.
