Performance

The base engine for the Jeep Grand Cherokee is a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, which is plenty for your everyday and recreational needs. If you want more power, however, the Grand Cherokee can also be equipped with a 5.7-liter V8 with 360 horsepower and a 7,200-pound towing capacity; or a 3.0-liter turbo diesel with 240 horsepower, 420 lb-ft of torque, and a 7,400-pound towing capacity. The Grand Cherokee has two performance options as well: a 6.4-liter V8 with 475 horsepower, and a 6.2-liter V8 with 707 horsepower.

On pavement, the Grand Cherokee has a compliant ride and plenty of composure, taking on turns and curves without body roll or instability. On the trails, its rugged roots come out to tackle any type of terrain with one of four different 4-wheel drive systems. Quadra-Trac I is the start of the rugged systems, but still designed more for bad weather than trails. The Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II are ready for the toughest of conditions, complete with selectable drive modes in Auto, Sand, Mud, Snow, and Rock.

Interior

The Grand Cherokee is suitable for families or adventure, complete with wide, comfortable seating with plenty of long-distance support. The seats recline as well, and even rear-seat passengers enjoy ample headroom and legroom. All models have attractive cabins with high-quality, soft-touch materials, but moving up the lineup gives you more and more interior luxury.

Behind the second-row seat, the cargo bay offers 36.3 cubic feet of space. With the seats folded down, the area opens up to 63 cubic feet of space, which is more than enough for all your gear. Padded cargo areas and a power tailgate are available for more convenience and cargo security.

Technology

The Grand Cherokee comes standard with two USB ports, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration, Bluetooth® connectivity, a rearview camera, blind-spot monitors, parking sensors, and rear cross-traffic alert. From there, the Grand Cherokee can be equipped with everything from an upgraded 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system to premium audio.

The infotainment system is powered by Uconnect®, which features responsive inputs, an intuitive interface, and bright, clear icons. This system is remarkably easy to use, allowing you to quickly navigate through the menus to set your music playlist, radio station, climate controls, or anything else you may want to configure.
