    Default How much does the 2014 Grand Cherokee weigh?

    I drove one of these in December. Seemed sluggish with a Hemi under the hood. My 4.3L Chevy detuned truck engine would out accelerate it. Now check out how much these things weigh in this article.

    6500 lbs. My sequoia weighed about that much, 5800 before fluids and asses.

    My XJ on a 2200# trailer doesn't weigh that much. Ridiculous. Doesn't even have D60s to give it that weight

    no wonder it was sluggish. Is this hemi that heavy?

    It is all the sound insulation they put in vehicles nowadays. I think the Hemi is lighter than the 4.0

    Where is the truck bed to go with that kind of weight? Man, that thing is heavy.

    I think they must have weighed it down with at least 1000lbs. Car and Driver estimates the curb weight at 4700-5100lbs. Still pretty portly in my book

    Article says "loaded"...
    "vehicle loaded to its Swedish certificate of registration which is a total weight of 6,501 lbs."
