1991-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Nissan SUVs with Spectre Air Filters Get a Performance Improvement

The Spectre HPR7440 is engineered to increase airflow and improve performance

Based on military vehicles of World War II, the sports utility vehicle (SUV) gained popularity in the United States through the 1990s and early 2000s. The first vehicle to be recognized as an SUV was the Jeep Cherokee (XJ), which was introduced by American Motors in 1984.

U.S. automakers liked it because they could garner a profit of around $10,000 per unit at a time when they were losing money on many compact vehicles. Consumers liked the large cabins, the ride height, and the apparent safety because they were massive compared to smaller vehicles that shared the road. It was an ideal vehicle for driving the kids to their after-school activities because of the space and sometimes even three-rows of seats.

SUVs were constructed over a truck chassis, which permitted more cargo space in the cabin than a conventional automobile. Many of these vehicles also featured four-wheel drive so they were ideal for off-roading.

This classification of car was so popular that the major automakers including Chrysler, which now owns Jeep; General Motors, Nissan and others introduced several SUV models in different sizes including mini, compact, mid-size, full-size, and extended length.

The Spectre Performance Air Filter Cleaner Kit can be used to easily clean the filter when necessary.

For example, Nissan introduced a compact SUV called the Xterra to North America in the 2000 model year, which shared the same platform as the Nissan Frontier pickup truck, and a full-size SUV called the Armada in 2003, which used the same platform as the Nissan Titan pickup truck. Nissan’s luxury division, Infiniti introduced the QX56, a full-size luxury SUV, in 2004.

American Motors, and later Chrysler offered variations of the Jeep including the Cherokee and the Grand Cherokee in 1993; and the Jeep Wrangler, a compact to mid-sized SUV in 1986.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency considered SUVs as light trucks. So rules relating to tailpipe emissions on them were less stringent. However, starting in 2004, the EPA began to recognize that the SUV should have the same standards of tailpipe emissions as cars. That ruling along with another oil embargo made SUVs less attractive and sales started to drop.

Spectre is aware of the need to make air filters for this classification of vehicle and offers the Spectre HPR7440 Spectre Air Filter for the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Nissan Pathfinder, Xterra, and Armada as well as pickup trucks like the Nissan Titan and Frontier.

Spectre replacement filters are reusable and offer high airflow that helps to enhance horsepower and rate of acceleration. Designed to replace the stock air filter that comes with the vehicle, the Spectre HPR7440 can actually reduce airflow restrictions and features high quality materials and construction. The filter includes a urethane frame, reinforced steel mesh and synthetic filter media that is pre-oiled in the factory so it is ready to use straight out of the box.

You can use the Spectre Performance Air Filter Cleaning Kit to clean the filter then re-place it into the factory filter housing. Thanks to the air filter cleaning kit, HPR4820, cleaning is quick and easy, even for those who wouldn’t call themselves mechanically inclined.

The Spectre HPR7440 Air Filter can be used on the following vehicles:
