Jeep Grand Cherokee Model Years

Overview

Research by Year

Jeep practically invented the upscale SUV with its Wagoneer, which became increasingly plush during a three-decade production run. (You might recall vinyl "wood grain" trim on later models.) The large SUV was renamed the Grand Wagoneer with the introduction of a smaller Wagoneer in 1984.

The Grand Cherokee effectively replaced the aging Grand Wagoneer in 1993 with modern approach to 4x4 design—it used car-like unibody construction, for instance. Currently in its fourth generation, the rugged Jeep Grand Cherokee is on track to match the Grand Wagoneer’s long production life.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Generations

2011 - 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

3/4 Front Glamour 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Major changes included:

The current Grand Cherokee was introduced in 2011. The unibody chassis made it lighter than the outgoing model, but rigidity was greatly improved. Keeping to Jeep form, there are still an above-average number of engines and transmissions to choose from. For 2014, Jeep has made some cosmetic changes as well as adding a new EcoDiesel V6 engine that improves fuel economy and towing capacity figures.

2005 - 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee

3/4 Front Glamour 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Major changes included:

Perhaps the biggest revision made for the third-generation Grand Cherokee was in the suspension system. Jeep replaced the live-axle (rear) and leading-arm (front) design, geared more to off-road performance, with an independent wishbone design. This improved the on-road ride and handling of the Grand Cherokee, even if it angered some off-road purists. In 2005, the powerful SRT8 version was introduced, packing a 420-horsepower, 6.1-liter V8 HEMI engine.

1999 - 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Major changes included:

The second-generation Grand Cherokee was a major revision from the original inside and out. An automatic four-wheel drive system was added to the option list and the interior was enlarged, increasing the amount of interior space for rear passengers. The increased comfort and expanded powertrain and options lists made this version of the Grand Cherokee very popular in showrooms.

1993 - 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee

null 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Major changes included:

The Jeep Grand Cherokee entered the marketplace in 1993 as a replacement for the very popular Wagoneer. The first iteration was available with only the 4-inline six-cylinder engine, but there would be three others added by the time the gas ran out on this first-generation model in 1999. The original Grand Cherokee came in many configurations to suit whatever buyers were looking for, much like it does today.
