What are the engines available for the Grand Cherokee?
There are three engines available for the Grand Cherokee, and each one delivers the kind of power that Jeep is known for! The base engine is a solid 3.6-liter V6 that pumps out an awe-inspiring 293 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, and most trims will give you the option of a 5.7-liter V8 that delivers a spectacular 357 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. New this year to the Grand Cherokee engine lineup is the hybrid 4xe, which takes the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and adds several hybrid elements such as a battery pack and two electric motors, getting you up to 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. No matter which one of these fantastic engines you go with, it will pair with a smooth-sailing eight-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel-drive comes standard for the V6, but four-wheel-drive is available. All other engines come standard with four-wheel-drive.
What are the features of the Grand Cherokee?
Five fabulous trims are available for the Grand Cherokee, and throughout the lineup, you’ll be treated to several luxury, tech, and off-road equipment. The first time is the Laredo which comes standard with 17-inch wheels, LED headlights, heated mirrors, roof rails, keyless entry and ignition, and dual-zone automatic climate control. In addition, several tech items are available for the Laredo, including a digital instrument panel, an 8.4-inch central touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a six-speaker audio system. But wait, there’s more! The Laredo also comes with several option packages. The Lux Tech Group has automatic wipers, a remote start, a power liftgate, heated rear seats, and a wireless charging pad. The next available trim is the Limited, which gets more fun features such as LED foglights, driver’s seat memory settings, leather upholstery, and heated rear seats. If you’re planning on going off-roading, then you’re going to want the Traihawk trim, which gets you all-terrain tires, adaptive air suspension, hill ascent and descent control, front tow hooks, and an electronic disconnecting stabilizer bar. Higher trims have more luxury items, including upgraded leather upholstery, a panoramic sunroof, ambient cabin lighting, a hands-free liftgate, front cross-traffic alert, and four-zone automatic climate control.
What are some safety features available for the Grand Cherokee?
Not only is the Grand Cherokee one of the most powerful and well-equipped SUVs out there, but it’s also one of the safest, thanks to its numerous safety systems. One of these safety systems is an Adaptive Cruise Control system that will allow you to maintain a pre-set distance between the Grand Cherokee and the vehicle ahead of it. Another available safety feature is the Blind-Spot Monitoring System with Rear Cross Path Detection, which will monitor the areas beside and behind the Grand Cherokee so you can back up without fear of hitting an object and change lanes safely. There is even a Lane-Keeping Assist system that will keep your Grand Cherokee inside the painted lines. All of this makes the Grand Cherokee a well-rounded vehicle!
