What sets apart the Grand Cherokee in terms of the engine?

All vehicles begin with their engine, so it might be expected that a car with the kind of hype the Grand Cherokee receives must have something special under the hood. As it turns out the Grand Cherokee actually has four kinds of special under the hood. It begins with the standard engine, a 3.6-liter V6 that produces a well-rounded 295 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque and is married to an eight-speed automatic transmission. That's followed up with a 5.7-liter V8 that punches up to 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. The third is a 6.4-liter HEMI SRT V8 which features seven different drive modes (Auto, Sport, Track, Snow, Tow, Eco, and Valet) reaches 475 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque and can tow up to 7,200 pounds. Finally, there is the insane, Trackhawk exclusive, 6.2-liter HEMI V8 which can officially claim to be the "fastest accelerating", has the "quickest quarter-mile time", and has the "highest torque" in the SUV class.

What kind of trim is best for me?

Part of what has led to so many awards being bestowed upon the Grand Cherokee is the sheer diversity of its many impressive trims. Those looking into the 2018 model will find themselves satisfyingly confronted with a choice between eight different trims, three of which currently own the distinction of being the best in class in its own specialty. Those three are the Trailhawk - best in class 4x4 capability, the Summit - best in class luxury, and the Trackhawk - the most powerful SUV ever. All three models put their own spin on the Grand Cherokee by adding an impressive array of standard features on top of the already undeniably great list of amenities that come standard on the base trim, the Laredo. Some of the highlights include: (from the Trailhawk) hill ascent and descent control, an electronic limited-slip rear differential, underbody skid plates, ventilated front seats, an 8.4-inch touchscreen interface, a nine-speaker audio system, (from the Summit) additional noise-reducing window glass, active noise-canceling technology, adaptive cruise control, upgraded leather upholstery, a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, (from the Trackhawk) an upgraded eight-speed transmission, an upgraded adaptive suspension, and lightweight 20-inch wheels with high-performance tires, and Brembo brakes.

What safety and security technology comes with the Grand Cherokee?

Of course towing power, off-road ability, and luxury mean very little if you and your family aren't safe; thankfully, the Grand Cherokee provides its owners with an abundance of standard and available safety and security features. Any accident protection begins with the frame, the Grand Cherokee is designed with front and rear crumple zones specifically built to spread out the impact of an event in a way that minimizes risk to all occupants. Along with that structural foundation is a lining of seven airbags which includes multistage driver and front passenger airbags as well as front seat-mounted side airbags. On top of these standard safety features, purchasers of the Grand Cherokee can opt for additional safety in the form of advanced systems like Forward Collision warning (with active brake) and Parallel/Perpendicular park assist. The Forward Collision warning keenly monitors the distance between your vehicle and any in front of you, alerting you to any potential risk and applying brake force on its own when need be. Jeep's park assist system helps to eliminate any potential damage when parking by identifying open space, giving audible instructions to the driver, and controls the steering wheel while the driver simply operates the gas pedal and the brake.
