Jeep Grand Cherokee Overview

The midsized Grand Cherokee SUV has a solid, upscale interior, comfortable seats, and a supple, controlled ride. Handling is fairly agile for the class, fit and finish is impressive, and the eight-speed automatic is smooth. The standard 3.6-liter V6 returned so-so fuel economy. Two V8s, a 5.7 liter and the SRT's 6.4 liter, are optional. The good-performing diesel returned 24 mpg. The Uconnect infotainment system, with its large, well-labeled touch screen, is one of the easiest-to-use systems we've tested. Appropriately optioned, the Grand Cherokee makes a good tow vehicle or a capable off-roader. Reliability for the V6 version is well below average; V8 and diesel reliability are unknown.
