Our tested Grand Cherokee with the 4.7-liter V8 engine was powerful, but its fuel economy is nothing to brag about. Available engines for this model year were a 357-hp, 5.7-liter Hemi V8 and a 210-hp 3.7-liter V6. Over the years, the Grand Cherokee got a better driving position and a more settled ride.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.
