2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

The Jeep Grand Cherokee has been a powerful and capable midsize SUV since the release of its first generation in 1993. Now, 25 years later, the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee is more talented than ever by combining powerful mechanics, off-road capabilities, and advanced technology features.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee comes standardly equipped with a 3.6L V6 VVT engine, which gets a respectable EPA-estimated 19 city/26 highway MPG. This engine comes paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drivetrain.

This midsize SUV also has three other engines that are available including the 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine, the SRT® 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine, and the 6.2L V8 supercharged engine. These engines offer impressive benefits like enhanced performance, especially the latter engine.

The 6.2L HEMI® V8 engine puts out an outstanding 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque. This engine allows the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk to blow its competition out of the water. Because of this engine, this trim is the fastest accelerating SUV1 with the fastest quarter-mile time1 and highest torque rating of any SUV1.

Adventure Readiness

With so much power under the hood, it should come as no surprise that the 2018 Grand Cherokee is adventure ready no matter what trim level you're driving.

As for the upper trim levels like the Trackhawk and SRT®, you'll be to tow up to a whopping 7,200 pounds when properly equipped. These trims are equipped with the Selec-Track® System with a special Tow mode for big towing jobs. This Tow mode also works with the Quadra-Trac® Active On-Demand 4x4 System with 60/40 torque split for improved traction while you're towing.

Enhanced Entertainment

As we've seen so far, this vehicle has a lot to offer in terms of power and control. But what about entertainment and convenience? There's plenty of technology features to be enjoyed in this SUV, too!

The centerpiece of the new Grand Cherokee is the standard Uconnect® infotainment system.
