Spectre Air Filters Improve Performance on 1991-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Nissa

Spectre HPR7440 Air Filter for the 1991-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Nissan SUV.

The Spectre HPR7440 Air Filter is guaranteed to perform for up to 10 years or 1,000,000 miles.

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 $10,000 per unit at a time when they were losing money on 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 they featured 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.

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; a full-size SUV called the Armada in 2003, which used the same platform as the Nissan Titan pickup truck; and the Pathfinder in 1985, a two-door SUV. 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, the Grand Cherokee in 1993 and the Jeep Wrangler, a compact to mid-size 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 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.

The replacement filters are reusable and offer high airflow that helps to enhance horsepower and rate of acceleration. They last up to 50,000 miles before cleaning is required depending on driving conditions.

You can use K&N 99-5050 filter cleaning kit after the 50,000 miles and then re-place the filter into the factory filter housing until the vehicle rolls up another 50,000 miles when the kit can be used again. This assures that the K&N HPR7440 Spectre air filter can be used over and over and over again saving you from making repeated purchases of air filters.

The filter is so effective catching dirt and contaminants because it features four to six layers of cotton gauze media treated with a specially formulated grade of filter oil that is sandwiched between two aluminum wire screens. The oil provides the tackiness necessary for catching impurities to ensure that your engine is protected.

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