No matter what your preference, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has an engine to match. The standard base model is a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 295 horsepower, paired with front wheel drive. If you want even more power, plan to upgrade to either 3.0-liter diesel V6 that produces 240 horsepower or a 5.7-liter diesel V8 providing 360 horsepower. The latter delivers an impressive 4.8 second 0 to 60 time and top speed of 160 miles per hour, putting it in the league of the industry's top performance cars. Any trim level can be fitted with an optional all-wheel drive package to amplify the car's off-road handling capability. The base engine combination provides an EPA-estimated 19 city/26 highway miles per gallon.


The tough exterior of the Jeep conceals an exceedingly comfortable high end interior, with a spacious cabin and plenty of passenger room throughout, as well as 36.3 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats and 68.3 cubic feet with the seats folded down. The seats are supportive enough to stand up to a full day on the road. All six of the Grand Cherokee's trim levels are designed with quality materials and an eye for detail, with higher trim levels including premium options like leather upholstery, heated seats, rear parking sensors, and a power-adjustable driver's seat.


All Jeep Grand Cherokee trims come equipped with the brand's exclusive UConnect Entertainment System, an easy to use interface that allows you to sync your smartphone with Bluetooth or the attached USB port, along with standard satellite radio and six speaker audio system. You can also upgrade to a range of available tech options, including larger touch screens, navigation, and a suite of more powerful stereo systems.


The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee earned a four-star overall crash test rating from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration as well as the highest "Good" rating in four out of five categories from the Insurance Institute on Highway Safety. All Grand Cherokees come standard with multistage driver and front-passenger airbags and supplemental side-curtain airbags. The vehicle is built with standard crush zones in the front of the vehicle and side guard door beams to help protect occupants in the event of a collision. Higher trim levels include several high tech safety systems, including blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning with crash mitigation, and adaptive cruise control, which automatically adjusts your cruising speed to maintain a safe distance from other cars on the road.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is an American original and has been one of the most popular midsize luxury SUVs since its introduction in 1993. Combining rugged off-roading capabilities with sophisticated interior styling, this is the choice for those who appreciate a beautiful car, but still want to hit the trails on the weekends. The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee features an upgraded design from the prior model year, along with improved power and fuel economy and a new High Altitude feature package. This year, the Grand Cherokee celebrates its 75th anniversary with the 75th Anniversary edition and Limited 75th Anniversary edition models include new front fascias and headlamp design, all-new Recon Green paint, exclusive bronze finishes, and upgraded 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with start/stop technology.
