2012 Cherokee Laredo Sport

jeep grand cherokee in MOAll Star Dodge new Jeep Dealer in St. Louis knows that the Jeep Grand Cherokee is probably the most popular sport utility type vehicle on the market today.  The Grand Cherokee has always been known to be a rugged piece of equipment that is drawn to off-road situations. Even though it is designed to be robust in every aspect, its body has fine lines and as great as it looks, it was designed to function just fine off road as well.

The 2012 Cherokee Laredo Sport will get you 17 miles per gallon in the city and 23 miles per gallon on the highway and supports a gas/ethanol V6, 3.6 Liter engine with a 5-speed automatic transmission. The base curb weight is 4470 pounds which will give you a light enough weight for increased fuel economy yet a heavy enough weight for solid control.

The 2012 Jeep Cherokee Laredo Sport has a plethora of safety features including five standard air bags, ABS brakes, traction control, fog lamps, TPMS technology, and stability control to name a few. Of course if you are looking for more, there are always the options that you can add on.

One of the unique features is the integration of Hill Start Assist technology. This system prevents the vehicle from rolling away when trying to pull away on an up or down gradient. It simulates the handbrake hill start that manual transmission drivers are all to familiar with. The system engages automatically when a gradient of 3% or more is detected. The technology will hold the car stationary for two seconds after the brake is released, giving you time to apply the gas.
