The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a mid-size SUV that has been manufactured by Jeep since 1993. As its name suggests, it can be considered a larger version of the Jeep Cherokee. It also has better features than the regular model.
It is currently in its fifth generation, with the most recent generation being released in 2022.
It has a 5-door configuration that comes with either rear-wheel or four-wheel drive, depending on the trim selected. There is also a long-wheelbase version called the Grand Cherokee L.
The fifth generation models are currently built on the FCA Girogio Platform used by some Alfa Romeo and Maserati models.
As a mid-size luxury SUV, it typically faces competition from the Ford Edge, Toyota 4Runner, and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.
Powertrains have ranged significantly for different generations. However, they have typically always been larger than those found in the regular Cherokee.
Petrol options ran from the 2-liter Hurricane inline-4 found in the plug-in hybrid version to the largest 5.7-liter Hemi V8 found in performance models. Diesel options are limited to only a few generations. These have typically been between 2.5-liter and 3-liter turbocharged options.
Transmissions typically range from the earlier 4-speed to the 8-speed automatic found in the latest generation. Manual options were limited to only a 5-speed found in the first generation.
Trim options for the modern versions are similar to most of the other Jeep SUVs. These seven trims are Laredo, Altitude, Limited, Overland, Trailhawk, Summit, and finally Summit Reserve. Like most other Jeeps, the Trailhawk indicates an increased focus on off-road performance.
Jeep has made claims that the Grand Cherokee has won the most awards out of any SUV ever.
