LARCHMONT, NY - Eleanor Gulla , General Manager of Larchmont Chrysler Jeep Dodge, hosted an invitation only premier party for the unveiling of the 2005 Jeep family line. Along with food and drinks, the invited guests viewed the new 2005 Jeeps, featuring their Flagship model, the all-new redesigned 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. A test drive was also encouraged to the invited guests to experience the all-new, best in its class, 5.7 Liter, 330 horsepower, V8 Hemi engine.

      "The 2005 product line is the best I've ever seen," said Eleanor Gulla, a general manager at this family-run dealership. "The Grand Cherokee has an all new design, an all new platform and offers improved suspension and handling. Everyone was impressed with the way the new 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee drove and the new look." Luxury and superior styling set the all-new 2005 Grand Cherokee Limited apart from the competition. An available 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine with its Multi-Displacement System combines an impressive 330 horsepower with the fuel economy of an engine that knows the difference between cruising and accelerating. The intelligent Multi-Displacement engine deactivates 4 of 8 cylinders when they are not needed to improve fuel economy up to 20%. Calling the Grand Cherokee a "spectacular performer," Steve Wellins, one of the dealership's managers, said that he was impressed with the handling and styling as well as on- and off-road capabilities. The Jeep brand thrives on its reputation of rugged off-road capability and the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee sets a stunning new standard of performance on the pavement as well. Available on all 4x4 models, ESP enhances vehicle control and stability by countering forces acting on the vehicle to give a steadier, more comfortable ride no matter what the terrain.


President and Dealer Principal Alfredo Gulla was pleased with the sizeable turnout of customers who came to see the 2005 product line."Chrysler-Jeep really  introduced smashing new vehicles. People were very impressed with the demonstrations." Mr.Gulla was happy to see so many of their friends and neighbors, many of them repeat customers, at their festive coming-out party. In addition to the all-new 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee with available Quadra-Drive II 4WD, leather-trimmed seating and Boston Acoustics premium sound system, the 2005 Wrangler Unlimited with larger interior space and Command-Trac 4WD, and the 2005 Liberty Limited with 3.7-liter Power Tech V6, Oasis Chrome-clad wheels and four wheel disc brakes were also featured during the Jeep Premier Night. Early in 2005, look for the Jeep Liberty 2.8L CRD Common Rail Diesel, an all-new, second generation design that features advanced technology to create a more-powerful, cleaner-running, quieter diesel engine.
