The K&N PF-4600 fuel filter is fabricated of a low restriction, high performance cellulose glass media.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is arguably the most popular 4-wheel drive off-road vehicle on the market.
It was redesigned for the 2011 model year to include a new body, interior, and V6 engine. It was also enhanced with a new standard eight speed-automatic, a diesel option, improved electronics, and a configurable dashboard.
Starting in 2014, three engines are now available to power the Cherokee – a Hemi that delivers 360-horsepower, a V6 that generates 290-horsepower, and a diesel that produces 240-horsepower. Also included is a new 8-speed automatic transmission.
Of the three engines, the diesel generates the most torque – 420 lb-ft of torque. It is true that the number is not far greater than the Hemi. However, the diesel is quieter and has a flatter torque curve. So when you hit the gas, you definitely feel the difference. In addition, the diesel delivers much better mileage than the V8 and the V6.
The V8 that powers the Jeep Cherokee SRT offers the most power – 470-horses of it. That's 110 more than the diesel and 70 more than the V6.
The Cherokee includes steering-wheel paddle shifters as well as a central shifter to work the manual transmission. The paddles react instantly and keeps the car under manual control until the driver uses the central shifter or holds down the + paddle. Using the paddles puts the transmission into the manumatic mode, which makes it easier to use than the center shift.
There is an automatic economy mode that tries to stay in higher gears longer. A sports mode quickly converts the Cherokee from a sufficient economical vehicle to an oversized muscle car. With this mode on, you can feel all of the 360-horsepower of the Hemi or the 290-horsepower of the V6.
The sports mode also drops the air suspension height and raises the target engine speed from 1,400 rpm or so to 2,400 rpm or so. The vehicle downshifts faster and further.
