The Perfect Ride for...
Someone seeking a luxurious, yet practical SUV. The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers several powertrain and drivetrain options, so that you can choose the one that best fits your lifestyle. No matter what you choose, the high-quality interior materials and powerful engine options promise a performance utility vehicle at a reasonable price.
Drive & Handling
Since the Jeep Grand Cherokee has four engine options to choose from, power and efficiency are customizable to suit your needs. The 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 is perfect for someone looking for decent power output and remarkable efficiency. Producing up to 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, this option is no slouch. An EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway makes the V6 a perfect option for someone who wants to drive the Jeep Grand Cherokee everywhere,* and honestly, we can't see why you wouldn't.
If you're more interested in a little more grunt and towing capacity, the 5.7-liter V8 produces up to 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. That doesn't make it a gas guzzler, though. Fuel Saver Technology makes this SUV incredibly efficient despite the V8 engine. The system automatically deactivates four cylinders when they aren't needed.
For those who opt for the legendary SRT version, the 6.4-liter V8 engine churns out 475 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque. This stout engine is strapped to an 8-speed automatic transmission and features five drive modes, as well as the Quadra-Trac® Active On-Demand 4x4 System and Launch Control.
Jeep offers a final option for the power-hungry: a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces 707 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque. Forged pistons and connecting rods combined with sodium-cooled exhaust valves make this high-performance beast a track-ready choice for drivers who crave adrenaline.
Thanks to the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System, you can choose between five terrain settings to always get the exact amount of performance out of your Grand Cherokee. The five modes are snow, sand, mud, rock, and auto. No matter where you are, this system can help you get almost anywhere in style.
The biggest problem with being able to go anywhere is trying to stay connected, but Jeep makes it simple. Thanks to the available Uconnect® 4C NAV, you’ll never be too far away, even as you’re crossing creeks and rock crawling. The 8.4-inch touch screen gives you access to Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, SiriusXM® All Access Package, Navigation, and Bluetooth®. Whether you want to jam out to your favorite playlist or just need a little help if you get lost, Jeep has you covered.
Opt for SiriusXM Guardian™ and stay connected to your Jeep Grand Cherokee like never before. Offering remote access to tons of features like navigation and security alerts, as well as the ability to request Roadside Assistance, this feature gives you more power to control your Jeep from the comfort of your home or office.
Whether you’re on the trails or on the road, safety is incredibly important, and that’s why Jeep has developed some remarkable safety features to make sure those exciting trips are as safe as they are fun. Blind Spot Monitoring comes standard on the new Grand Cherokee, so you always have an extra pair of eyes looking out for you. Parallel parking is simplified with the standard Parksense® Rear Park Assist System and standard Parkview® Rear Back Up Camera. The available Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, and LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist all work together to keep you and your passengers safe, no matter where your Jeep takes you.
Looking for a rugged, off-road machine? The new Jeep Wrangler may be what you’re looking for, with three 4x4 systems available, getting to the top of a mountain has never been more fun. Prefer to keep your adventures to the city? The new Jeep Renegade may be an even better option.
