Overview

The Grand Cherokee is available in either a two- or four-wheel drive configuration. The available trims are Laredo, Limited, and Overland.

The Laredo trim starts with a 210-hp 3.7-liter V6, the Limited gets a 305-hp, flex-fuel 4.7-liter V8 (optional on Laredo), and the top-of-the-line Overland has a 330-hp 5.7-liter V8 Hemi (optional on Limited). The high performance SRT8 trim is powered by a 6.1-liter 420-hp V8. Finally a 3.0-liter turbo diesel V6 is optional on all trims (except for SRT8). Power is delivered through a standard five-speed automatic transmission. Safety features that come on all Grand Cherokees include an electronic stability program, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist, traction control, a tire-pressure monitoring system, side-curtain air bags, and front advanced multi-stage air bags.For 2008, the Jeep Grand Cherokee receives a more powerful 4.7-liter V8 and gets subtle exterior and interior detailing changes.
