New Jeep for towing?

Postby Inguneer » Sun Apr 09, 2017 6:15 pm

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk may be coming to Australia. Good towing capacity and enough torque for the ramp:

My mate got done by the dodgy gear shifter issue. Bent his door back on itself. Jeep admitted it was their fault but still wouldnt pay to fix it.

That sucks. Im guessing it comes down having a good dealer that wants to fix the issues.
I must be lucky, I drive it hard and tow a my xstar regularly with it and haven't had an issue, fingers crossed until august when its time for a new one :)

Gotta agree with Jakeyhamer. we've had 5 years across 2 new diesel Grand Cherokees, 80000k's and no issues. Tows like a dream, goes like the clappers & at this stage wouldn't consider anything else for our needs.
