What is Quadra-Drive on a Jeep Grand Cherokee?


I’ve been driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee on and off for about 14 years. When I was appointed as the Chrysler Jeep Dealer for North Brisbane in 2003 (No dodge then) my first vehicle was a WH Grand Cherokee Limited. I loved that car and my passion for Jeep has continued. I’m driving a 2012 Grand Cherokee Overland presently and it just confirms how far Jeep has come in the last 14 years. So I decided to do a bit of investigation comparing my ride to some of the other luxury SUV vehicles on the road. BMW X5, MM-Class M Class, Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, Lexus RX350 and Jeep Grand Cherokee are comparable in features, but the Jeep smashes all of them in affordability. Let’s tick off a few of the Jeeps features


  • Double Pane Sun Roof
  • Full time 4WD via the Quadra-Drive System
  • 18” Alloy Wheels
  • 3.0 litre diesel engine
  • 6 Speed Automatic Transmission
  • Navigation
  • Lane Change Warning System
  • Leather Seats with 2 position Memory
  • 5 Tonne Towing Capacity
  • Bi-Xenon Headlights
  • Bluetooth capability
  • Front and Rear Air conditioning vents
  • Quadra Lift Suspension
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Hill Descent Control with Hill Start Assist
  • Under $80,000 Retail Price


So onwards with this article and the title – What is Quadra-Drive on this Jeep Grand Cherokee? Rather than stumble around with my own explanation, below is the blurb from the Jeep website.

“The definitive capability statement, the Quadra-Drive 11 4×4 system with a rear electronic Limited Slip Diff differential delivers superior all-weather traction and legendary Jeep off-road capability. Choose the auto mode in the standard Selec-terrain traction control system for everyday driving (editor – permanent all-wheel drive) for everyday driving or quickly dial in Snow, Sand/Mud or Rock for specific driving conditions. Adding another dimension is the Quadra-Lift Air Suspension System – it can raise the vehicle for better off-road capability and lower it on-road for better handling and efficiency.

The Quadra-Drive 11 Active, Full-Time 4×4 System is the ultimate for virtually any driving situation. This system uses the Quadra-Trac 11 transfer case with an Electronic Limited Slip Differential in the rear axle, offering excellent tractive performance. Quadra-Drive 11 also features 2.72 low range and neutral.”

What’s Car Business all about?

Car Business is a multi-dimensional automotive company that aims to help you to buy your new car for a better price than you can do on your own. Based on the Redcliffe Peninsula about 15 minutes from Brisbane Airport and 30 minutes from the Brisbane CBD, Car Business is located in an area that allows us to pick and choose from Brisbane’s finest new cars for sale.

The ‘go to’ Brisbane car buying agents, Car Business, is so much better than a car broker – first and foremost, Car Business is an experienced Car Buyer’s Advocacy service. Our experienced staff will stand alongside you and act on your behalf to help you buy your new car at a better price than you can directly through new car dealers.

My goal with Car Business is to provide timely and informative articles on everything to do with cars – used car purchase, new car sales, car service, car finance, car insurance, aftermarket car protection products.

Above anything else, Car Business is a company that provides current automotive advice for car owners who do not have access to knowledgeable auto industry friends. To those of you without someone to talk to, I am your expert – the car guy.

I have been in the automotive industry since 1978 – covering all aspects that consumers need advice. I’ve been called many things in my time – The Car Professor, The Car Doctor, and recently the Car Guy, but the bottom line is that I know a lot about this industry. Whenever someone needs some advice – they call me.

In general terms my car advice is free – it is just something I like to do, and my goal is to give back to the community that has treated me so well.

Good quality, Guaranteed Used Cars

I have access to good quality vehicles – you can see my current stock by clicking through to http://www.carsales.cars my own website for the cars that I have in stock.  I am also able to search out that particular car that you are finding difficult to find. I have got a great dealer community that I have dealt with for many years, and these cars do not even hit the websites. I specialize in South East Queensland but in some cases, can look after interstate customers

Other areas that I specialize in are relatively widespread.

Genuine Spare Parts, Merchandise, and Other Cool Stuff

www.genuinespares.com.au is an online spare parts business specializing in Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Isuzu Ute and Volkswagen. So if you are looking for anything from crash parts, electrical components, wheels, t-shirts or anything else, let me assist you with that search.  You can rely on genuine spares to procure parts at better than trade price and certainly better than you can buy in Australia. My prices are reduced by about 30% on what you would expect to pay here in Australia

Car Business Protects Your Car

Car Business is a local agent for Williams Paint and Interior ProtectionAutoGard and CleanGard, SunX window tinting.

Don’t get ripped off by car dealers wanting to make a huge profit – our window tinting prices start from $175 up to $450 for cars that dealers want to charge $750 for.

Car Finance and Car Insurance

My finance and insurance franchise, 1800Approved Finance, will help you get finance for your car at rates much lower than a dealer will offer. For a homeowner, we are talking from 4.99%. Your bank will not even offer you that.
