The 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a mid-size SUV that comes in several models, including Laredo, Special, Freedom, Limited and Overland. The Cherokee is available with real-wheel drive or all-wheel drive and with 4.0 liter engines and 4.7 liter engines.
The 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee averages 14 miles per gallon in the city and 19 miles per gallon on the highway. It averages 16 miles per gallon when city and highway miles are combined. The gas tank holds 20.5 gallons of fuel.
Annual Cost to Drive
The annual cost to drive a 6-cylinder Cherokee for a year is estimated to be $2,288. For an 8-cylinder engine, the cost is about $2,441. These figures assume the Jeep is driven 15,000 miles per year, with 55 percent of those miles in the city and 45 percent on the highway. The formula assumes gas costs $2.44 a gallon.
Daily Cost to Drive
The Grand Cherokee uses 1.56 gallons of gas to drive 25 miles. Based on a price of $2.44 per gallon, the cost to drive 25 miles is $3.81.
The editors at Edmunds.com rated the Grand Cherokee among its most-wanted mid-size SUVs in 2001. But by 2004, editors found that SUV buyers tended to be customers who wanted the outward features of a rugged truck but the ride of a luxury car. The Grand Cherokee, which was built to handle rough terrain, dropped in popularity and ratings because it was more truck than car.
A roof rack is a standard feature on all models of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. According to an article on CBS.com, vehicles driving at highway speed use more than half of their power to overcome aerodynamic drag. You can lose 5 percent of your vehicle's fuel efficiency by loading up the roof rack.
