Interior Comforts

Before we dig into the functionality of the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee, let’s take a look at its superior comfort, which begins with space. Overall, 105.4 cubic feet are available for all passengers, with an ample 36.3 cubic feet just for cargo.2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

As drivers settle back into their low-backed cloth bucket seats, they’ll be afforded plenty of creature comforts. For example, dual-zone automatic climate control has been added for more nuance in temperature. And a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob have been included for a sleeker look.

All passengers can benefit from the 6-speaker audio system that’s been installed, as well as the Uconnect® suite. This system includes a 5-inch touchscreen, integrated voice commands, and an SD Card Reader for even more music options.

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee: Safety

Safety is another highly important facet of the Grand Cherokee. First and foremost, several stability-enhancing technologies have been added, like Traction Control and Electronic Stability Control. Rain Brake Support has also been included to optimize stopping power.

A few features have been installed to ensure you can safely tow your gear. Trailer Sway Damping can help keep all that rear weight from pushing your vehicle off balance. And a ParkView® rear camera has been installed so you can always see behind you.

If you do end up in an accident, you can rest assured that the Enhanced Accident Response System will make your vehicle easy to find and enter. As soon as the airbags deploy, your car will flash all lights, unlock doors, and cut off the engine fuel.

Rugged Jeep Grand Cherokee Performance

Backing all these excellent convenience and safety features is a powerful drivetrain, the focal point of which is a 3.6L V6 engine. Thanks to its included start/stop dual battery system, efficiency is maximized, and the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee can maintain 26 highway MPG and 19 city MPG.12017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

Nevertheless, this fuel economy doesn’t compromise your power. The SUV can still produce 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. That’s more than enough to achieve a towing capacity of 6,200 pounds!2
