The success and heritage of the Jeep name was something Chrysler wanted to capitalize on when they launched the Jeep Grand Cherokee in 1993. It boasted Chrysler's Uni-frame structure which was a moonquake crafted in steel and using Quadra-Coil suspension on live front and rear axles with anti-roll bars and gas-filled shocks. The Quadra-Trac 4WD was very useful, being an on-demand system with a viscous coupling center differential with the torque split between front and rear axles, depending on surface conditions. The body was more rounded than previous Cherokees and in fact it had one of the most aerodynamic shape of any Sport Utility Vehicle. It also had short overhangs and could approach a hill of 37 degrees or leave one of 30 degrees. Best of all was the 360ci (5.9-liter) V8 which gave the Grand Cherokee more super car-like performance on the road.
