Jeep Cherokee KL SUV Can See Performance Benefits from K&N Reusable Air Filter
Friday – October 31, 2014 3:38 PM

resusable air filterThe Jeep Cherokee model has a long history in the Jeep lineup. First produced in 1974 by the American Motors Corporation (AMC), the term “Sport Utility” first appeared in the 1974 Jeep Cherokee SJ sales brochure. The Cherokee SJ was replaced by the Jeep Cherokee XJ, and the XJ Cherokee began the modern sport utility vehicle trend spawning copycat models such as the Ford Explorer. The Jeep Liberty KJ was introduced in 2001 as a replacement for the outgoing Jeep Cherokee XJ platform, however, outside of North America the Liberty was known as a Jeep Cherokee KJ. Jeep discontinued the Liberty KK in 2012 and the Cherokee name was resurrected in the United States with the introduction of the Jeep Cherokee KL crossover SUV.

The 2014 and 2015 Jeep Cherokee KL, can be equipped with either the standard 2.4-liter Tigershark I4 or a 3.2L Pentastar V6 engine. 2014 and 2015 Jeep Cherokee KL owners can now equip their crossover SUV with a replacement auto air filter from the authority in washable air filters, K&N. The K&N reusable air filter 33-5009, is designed to fit into the stock air filter box of 2014 and 2015 Jeep Cherokee KL 3.2L V6 models and 2014 Jeep Cherokee KL 2.4L models without any need for modifications. K&N replacement air filters are made with specially woven cotton gauze. Because cotton, by nature, is more breathable than paper, a K&N replacement washable air filter can flow more air than a typical paper air filter. More air can result in increased performance and better acceleration.

chartIt would be false to assume that an increase in airflow with a K&N reusable air filter comes at the expense of filtration efficiency and engine protection. K&N knows that a Jeep could be subjected to some of the most extreme conditions on the planet. K&N performs filtration efficiency testing following the ISO 5011 protocol with ISO coarse test dust to guarantee that our air filters will provide high airflow without sacrificing engine protection. K&N replacement reusable air filter 33-5009 was tested and showed a 98.80% overall filtration efficiency rating. Detailed filtration test results for this air filter are available for viewing.

Perhaps more exciting than the increased performance that comes with a K&N replacement performance air filter is the fact that they are also a washable and reusable air filter. The ability to wash and reuse a K&N air filter means that it will pay for itself over time. The K&N washable air filter for 2014 and 2015 Jeep Cherokee KL 3.2L V6 models and 2014 Jeep Cherokee KL 2.4L models can be washed and made like new using one of the K&N Recharger air filter service kits.

K&N Blackhawk Induction Air Intake for 2012-2015 Jeep Wrangler JK Pentastar V6
Wednesday – November 5, 2014 1:10 PM

air intake systemThe color black has strong emotional associations and it often implies power, elegance, and mystery. K&N gets that, which is why K&N has released a line of all black air intakes aptly named Blackhawk Induction™ air intake systems. K&N felt that select trucks, muscle cars, and SUVs like the 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 Jeep Wrangler JK models with the 3.6L Pentastar V6 were deserving of such an aggressive looking intake system. A Jeep Wrangler was designed with impressive off-road capabilities, however, that doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t look equally impressive.

The K&N Blackhawk Induction™ air intake system for 2012-2015 Jeep Wrangler JK models with a 3.6L Pentastar V6 is designed to not only imply aggressive power, but is expert-engineered and guaranteed to increase horsepower and torque.

The mandrel bent aluminum intake tube is finished in a durable flat black powder coat for a bold look under the hood. In stark contrast to the black intake tube is a welded and engraved aluminum K&N nameplate. The K&N logo has been representing performance for 45 years. This Blackhawk Induction™ air intake system incorporates a black powder coated heat shield, also stamped with the K&N logo, to help deflect engine heat away from air entering the engine.

2011 to 2015 Ford Super Duty with 6.7L Power Stroke V8 Can Install K&N Diesel Air Filter
Wednesday – November 5, 2014 3:42 PM

diesel air filterThe Ford Motor Company introduced the third generation Ford Super Duty in 2011 and with the new truck came an all-new, all-Ford, 6.7L Power Stroke Turbodiesel V8. Codenamed the “Scorpion”, Ford originally rated the 6.7-liter Power Stroke at 390 horsepower, and 735 lb-ft of torque. For 2015 Super Duty diesel models, Ford claims to have bumped up power output to an incredible 440 horsepower and 860 lb-ft of torque. Owners of 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 Ford Super Duty trucks, including the F250, F350, F450, F550, and F650 models can equip their 6.7L Power Stroke powered truck with a replacement diesel air filter from the authority in washable air filters, K&N.

This performance air filter is designed to fit into the stock air filter box of 2011-2015 Ford Super Duty models equipped with the 6.7L Power Stroke diesel V8 without any need for modifications. This replacement K&N air filter is designed as a direct air filter cross reference to the stock disposable filter. It was engineered with two joined sections including a secondary filter that is completely sealed when installed in the stock air filter box. K&N replacement air filters are made with specially woven cotton gauze. Because cotton, by nature, is more breathable than paper, a K&N replacement diesel air filter can flow more air than a typical paper air filter. More air can result in increased performance and better acceleration. Better performance can be helpful when towing up a steep grade, or when fully loaded.

CHartIt would be false to assume that an increase in airflow with a K&N diesel air filter comes at the expense of filtration efficiency and engine protection. K&N engineers place filtration efficiency and dirt retention as a priority when developing a diesel air filter. This diesel air filter uses design elements that go above and beyond our standard automotive air filters. K&N knows that a Ford Super Duty diesel could be subjected to some of the most extreme conditions on the planet. K&N used two extra layers, totaling six, of our special tight weave cotton gauze sandwiched between wire mesh to form extra deep 2” pleats for the main air filter section. Six layers of 2” deep pleated cotton filter media allows diesel air filter 33-5010 to outflow the stock air filter, hold a lot of dirt for long service intervals, and offer 99.19% overall filtration efficiency.

K&N performs filtration efficiency testing following the ISO 5011 protocol with ISO coarse test dust to guarantee that our air filters will provide high airflow without sacrificing engine protection. Calling this test dust coarse is almost absurd, as 22% of the dust is rated at 10 microns or less. To provide perspective, a human blood cell is typically between 6 and 8 microns across. Detailed filtration test results for diesel air filter 33-5010 are available for viewing.

Perhaps more exciting than the increased performance that comes with a K&N replacement diesel air filter is the fact that they are also a washable and reusable air filter. The ability to wash and reuse a K&N air filter means that it will pay for itself over time. The K&N replacement diesel air filter for 2011 to 2015 Ford Super Duty trucks, including the F250, F350, F450, F550, and F650 models with the 6.7L Power Stroke diesel V8 can be washed and made like new using one of the K&N Recharger air filter service kits. Recharger kit 99-5000 includes 12 fluid ounces of air filter cleaner and a 6.5 ounce aerosol bottle of air filter oil for quick and easy application. Recharger, 99-5050, differs in that it includes an 8 ounce squeeze bottle of K&N filter oil for a more precise application.

The K&N replacement diesel air filter for of 2011-2015 Ford Super Duty models equipped with the 6.7L Power Stroke diesel V8 is backed by the K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty. Replacement air filter 33-5010 is designed to provide increased performance, reusability, and long air filter service intervals without any need for modifications or tuning for the following Ford Super Duty models:

2015 Ford F550 Super Duty 6.7L V8 Diesel
