A mid-sized SUV introduced by Jeep in 1993 to compete against Ford's Explorer, and Motor Trend's "Truck of the Year" for 1993. Larger than the Cherokee, the Grand Cherokee is undeniably Jeep, with the brand's distinguishing angular and oversized wheel wells, seven-slot grill, and all-around angular styling. Models from 1993-1998 are known as ZJs, 1999-2004 are WJs, and the latest models, introduced in 2005, are known as WKs. Grand Cherokees have historically been overpowered, starting with the Chrysler 318 V8 in the 1993 model. In 1998, Jeep introduced the Grand Cherokee 5.9, named after the 5.9 liter Chrysler 360 engine they offered as an option. This special-edition Grand Cherokee was marketed as the world's fastest SUV, storming from 0-60 mph in 6.1 seconds, a remarkable feet for an SUV at the time. Jeep looks to be continuing that trend into 2006 with the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT-8, powered by a 6.1 liter HEMI engine that propels the vehicle to 60 mph in "less than 5 seconds."

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is an extremely capable off-road performer when properly equipped, with enough road-manners to make it suitable as a main vehicle in any household. It's distinctive styling has made it a good seller for the Jeep brand and a well-respected SUV to boot. It's powerful engine options ensure that you'll be able to put any ricer in their place

*Note "SUV" was used in place for Grand Cherokees merely as a convenience and for the sake of simply conveying the intended message. See example.
My Jeep is not an SUV. Your SUV is not a Jeep.
Your Grand Cherokee is far more capable and attractive than my 4Runner.

Intel's dual-core successor to the Pentium M. Previously codenamed Yonah, the Core Duo is a processor designed specifically around performance-per-watt - in other words, trying to produce an energy-efficient CPU that does not compromise severely on speed. As such, it has replaced the PowerPC G4 processor in Apple's Powerbooks (now called MacBook Pro) as part of Apple's widely-acclaimed switch to Intel processors and the X86 architecture. Core Duos will also be used by major computer manufacturers in their laptops, and can also be found in Apple's new iMac Core Duo.

The Core Duo will soon be replaced (Q4 of 2006) by Intel processors Conroe and Merom, which will be 64-bit chips with similar energy savings as the Core Duo but boasting more cache, improved performance and less heat production.
My MacBook Pro with Core Duo processor total smokes your PowerPC G4.
(second person) Yeah, but I don't need to emulate PPC apps in Rosetta!
