Why Buy the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
If you need a large, full-size SUV that maximizes its ability to drive on trails and less-than-smooth surfaces, look no further than the Jeep Grand Cherokee. A descendant of rugged vehicles made to conquer the rough terrain of World War II battlefields, the nameplate entered its 2018 model year with its off-road chops and potent power unaltered. With eleven trims available, the nameplate runs the gamut from bare-boned model to high-performance stalwart. One of them, the Trackhawk, is brand-new and functions as the top-level model. It is placed above, in ascending order, the Laredo, Laredo E, Altitude, Limited, Trailhawk®, Sterling Edition, Overland, High Altitude, Summit, and SRT®.
Exterior – Reasons Why Buy the Grand Cherokee
The 2018 model is part of the nameplate’s fourth generation of production, which commenced in 2011. The classic Jeep styling is still present, albeit with more rounded edges and a sleeker profile. Unibody construction is used to make the vehicle sturdy. At the base level, it includes halogen quad headlights with automatic on/off ability, and power heated manual-folding side mirrors. Upper-level trims are more likely to have additions or enhancements like fog lights, LEDs (in place of halogen lamps), a dual exhaust system, turn-signal indicators on the side mirrors, and roof rails.

With two rows of seats that accommodate up to five people, the 2018 Grand Cherokee provides 105.4 cubic feet of passenger volume. With all seats in place, cargo space is measured at 36.3 cubic feet, with the 60/40 split-folding bench-style seat enabling you to stretch it into the cabin. Cloth seating with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob are standard. Power-adjustable front seats with lumbar support, leather upholstery, heating and ventilating capability on the front seats, and back-row and steering-wheel heating capability are some of the features added when you go up in trim. The leather seating varies with the level and type of trim. For instance, the Trailhawk® uses suede leather, the Sterling Edition has a two-tone leather scheme, and the Trackhawk has uniquely soft and smooth leather (Nappa).
For comfort and convenience, the SUV starts off with features such as Bluetooth® wireless technology for hands-free phone operation and audio streaming, remote keyless entry, two USB ports and an auxiliary audio jack for connecting mobile devices, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ for smartphone-based control, a one-year complimentary SiriusXM® satellite radio subscription, six-speaker audio, an SD flash-memory card slot, and a Uconnect® 4 infotainment interface represented by a 5-inch touchscreen. Upper-level additions or enhancements include remote start, a garage-door opener, HD Radio™, a single-disc CD player, 8.4-inch touchscreen navigation, a 7-inch LCD instrument cluster display, a rear DVD entertainment system, auto-dimming on the rearview mirror, and a six-speaker 506-watt or nine-speaker 825-watt audio system.
Mechanical / Powertrain – Request More Information
The standard engine on the SUV is the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, which produces 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The V6 comes with stop-start technology to eliminate idling-and, by consequence, make the vehicle more fuel-efficient-by shutting down the engine when coming to a complete stop and turning it back on when the brake pedal is released. However, if you go with any trim between the Limited and the Summit, you can go with a 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 instead; this engine produces 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. The SRT®, which used to be the top-performance model prior to the arrival of the Trackhawk, gets a 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 engine, which generates 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. And the Trackhawk is exclusively powered by the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® V8 for an output of 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque-and a blisteringly fast 0-60 mph of 3.5 seconds. All four engines go with an 8-speed automatic transmission, with paddle shifters added on the SRT® for a more exciting drive. Front-wheel drive is the standard drivetrain. However, four-wheel drive-with all choices belonging to the Quadra-Trac® family of drivetrains-is available for much improved performance on any surface. Notably, only the Trailhawk®, SRT®, and Trackhawk have standard rear-wheel drive. A four-wheel independent suspension is standard; however, the SRT® and Trackhawk stand out with their Bilstein® adaptive damping suspensions for improved adjustments to the road condition the vehicle encounters. Also, the Trailhawk®, as the most off-road-capable of the bunch, has a heightened ground clearance to keep it further away from debris that can potentially damage the undercarriage.
Safety – Why Buy with Safety Features
On the SUV, restraint and cushioning during a crash is provided by a driver’s knee airbag, dual front impact airbags, dual front seat-mounted side impact airbags, and two front and two rear roof-mounted side curtain airbags. Also present on the vehicle are electronic vehicle stability, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, a backup camera, low-beam daytime running lamps, all-wheel traction control, trailer sway damping, and hill start assist control. Upper-level additions and enhancements include LED daytime running lamps, hill descent control, a sensor-based parking assistance system, lane departure warning, and blind spot and cross path detection.
