Design, Practicality and Boot Space

The design of the new Jeep Grand Cherokee strikes a balance between modern refinement and ruggedness, staying true to the brand's heritage. It's characterized by strong lines, a bold front grille, and sleek LED headlights that give the SUV a commanding presence on the road. The body proportions and curves create a sense of dynamism while maintaining an air of sophistication.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Exterior

The Jeep Grand Cherokee strikes a practical balance between being an everyday vehicle and an off-road adventurer. Its comfortable interior, with spacious seating for up to five passengers, makes it suitable for commuting, family trips, and long journeys. The higher ride height provides a better view of the road and easier entry and exit compared to sedans.

As for boot space with the rear seats upright, you'll have 533-litres of room which is ample space to fit groceries, luggage, and everyday items. If you need more room for larger items or a shopping spree, the rear seats can be folded down to expand the cargo area to 1,463 litres. This flexibility makes the Grand Cherokee well-suited for road trips, outdoor adventures, and hauling larger items when needed.

Interior and Trims

The interior of the new Jeep Grand Cherokee is a showcase of luxury, comfort, and modern technology. Depending on the trim level and optional packages, you can expect a range of features that enhance your driving experience and make every journey enjoyable. The use of high-quality materials throughout the cabin contributes to an upscale feel. Soft-touch surfaces, premium leather upholstery, and thoughtful details like contrast stitching and wood or metal accents create a refined atmosphere.

The Grand Cherokee offers comfortable seating for up to five passengers, with available power-adjustable and heated/ventilated front seats. Depending on the trim, rear-seat passengers can enjoy features like heated seats and ample legroom for a comfortable ride. The infotainment system varies based on the trim level but typically includes a user-friendly touchscreen display with features like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity, and navigation. Higher trims might feature larger screens, enhanced audio systems, and additional connectivity options.

One trim level available: Summit Reserve

Currently, the Grand Cherokee is exclusively available in the Summit Reserve trim, characterized by its luxurious features. However, more affordable variants are set to become available in the coming times. The currently available Summit Reserve iteration boasts a wealth of features, including 21-inch alloy wheels, a four-zone climate control system, front seats with massage functionality, a digital rear-view mirror, and a head-up display.

Power and Performance

In the UK, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is exclusively available as the 4xe plug-in hybrid (PHEV) variant, which combines a 2.0-litre petrol engine with an electric motor. When the battery is fully charged, you can officially travel up to 30 miles without utilizing any petrol.

The Hybrid mode enables the vehicle to autonomously determine the appropriate times to engage the petrol engine and when to rely on the electric motor. This generally means electric power in urban settings, with the petrol engine contributing on faster roads, particularly uphill sections.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Interior

The transition between power sources is quite noticeable due to the distinct buzz of the four-cylinder petrol engine. Unlike the smoother six-cylinder engines found in competing plug-in hybrids such as the BMW X5 and Range Rover Sport, the Grand Cherokee's engine has a different character.

In terms of acceleration, while the Grand Cherokee isn't as rapid as its rivals when you fully press the accelerator, it can achieve a commendable 0-62mph time of 6.3 seconds.

When driving the Jeep Grand Cherokee on the road there’s a relatively good level of ride comfort. There's a bit more vibration at motorway speeds compared to the top contenders, although the vehicle handles larger obstacles, including speed bumps, quite capably. The UK's road conditions, particularly its potholed roads, might present more of a challenge.

Overall if you're seeking an SUV that effortlessly combines refinement with ruggedness, the new Jeep Grand Cherokee deserves a spot at the top of your list.

Paul Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0 CRD Overland Auto

Plenty of power, comfort and in car features such as power tailgate, heated seats all round and heated steering wheel - oh, and USB ports in the back - a god send if you have kids! Downside - finish is not as good as German manufacturers.
