4×4 Drive Systems
Jeep is known for its 4×4 systems, and the Grand Cherokee model is no exception when it comes to conquering adventures ahead. Standard on the Laredo E and Altitude trims, there’s the Quadra-Trac I 4WD system that was produced for all-weather capability and includes the Selec-Terrain System. High-tier trims such as the Grand Cherokee Limited, Limited X, Trailhawk, Overland, High Altitude, and Summit feature the same 4×4 system but are also all paired with a two-speed transfer case to recognize and correct tire slippage. The Selec-Terrain Traction Control System incorporated lets drivers options between driving modes for driving in snow, sand, mud or rock. Additionally, there’s also the Quadra-Trac II System for even better off-road capability thanks to its low range. The Trailhawk is the only trim that has the Quadra-Trac II system as well as an additional electronic rear limited-slip differential for optimal off-road traction and capability, thus making the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk “Trail Rated Tough.” Quadra-Trac Active on Demand 4WD is the standard 4×4 system on the top-tier Grand Cherokee SRT and Trackhawk trims. It operates as a full-time 4×4 system that readily adapts no matter the driving conditions without any input from the driver being necessary.
