off road/sandy beach capability
I am new to the forum and new to the world of Jeep. I just purchased a 2011 Grand Cherokee 4x4. It has the basic 4 wheel drive, not the upgraded manual switch set up. (quad track?). The dealer assured me that it will be fine in the sand, but I am concerned. My ford escape has a setting for 4 wheel 'low' which I use in the sand without a problem. Any experience on this out there?thanks.
My experience with this type of 4wheel drive has not included driving in sand; but the only times I have ever switched to "low" is in mud and deep snow at very low speeds. it does not allow you to go as fast as I would assume you would want to in sand
The biggest thing that will help you get through the sand will be airing down the tires, not some fancy 4wd setting. Drop tire pressure down into the teens if you are gonna be spending some time on the sand, and drive with your head.
