: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Jeep's traditional SUV, the Grand Cherokee behaves just as well in the wildness as it does on the road, a rare quality in this age of family-focused crossovers. Buyers can be assured of go-anywhere capability along with all the luxury and technology they can handle.

What's New for 2017

The posh Summit model receives interior trim upgrades and an updated nose. A new Trailhawk model promises even greater off-road prowess.

Choosing Your Jeep Grand Cherokee

Most Jeep Cherokees start out with a 290-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 and rear-wheel drive. The available 5.7-liter V8 is good for 360 horsepower, and there's also a 3-liter turbo-diesel V6 that develops 240 horsepower. Four-wheel drive is available with any of these engines (and mandatory with the V8). The SRT gets its own 6.4-liter V8 with 475 horsepower. Four-wheel drive comes on the SRT and new Trailhawk.

An eight-speed automatic transmission is used on all models. With the diesel or either V8 under the hood, you're good to tow up 7,200 pounds.

The Grand Cherokee comes in a multitude of trims that stretch clear across the mid-size SUV market:

The entry-level Cherokee comes with the V6 engine and features like 17-inch alloy wheels, keyless ignition, Bluetooth phone and audio, and a six-speaker sound system with touchscreen display.

Jeep Grand Cherokee

Laredo E

Adds a power driver seat, chrome roof rails, and satellite radio. Both the standard Laredo and the E can get a Security and Convenience Group with a power liftgate, remote start, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel. Available on four-wheel drive versions is the Off-Road Adventure I Group, which includes skid plates, a two-speed transfer case, hill descent control, and a terrain selector. You can also order a sunroof, 18-inch wheels, and Jeep's Uconnect infotainment interface.

Jeep Grand Cherokee


The 5.7-liter V8 and turbo-diesel V6 become available at this level. Standard fare includes remote start, leather seating with driver memory and passenger power, heated rear seats, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, and a nine-speaker sound system. The available Luxury Group II adds a panoramic sunroof, upgraded leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, a power-adjustable steering wheel, and xenon headlamps. You can also select the Off-Road Adventure Group II, which adds an air suspension and locking rear differential to the Off-Road Adventure Group I, which remains available. Rounding out the option list are a navigation system and the Advanced Technology Group with adaptive cruise control, safety warning systems, and collision mitigation.

Jeep Grand Cherokee


Comes standard with four-wheel drive and all off the Off-Road Adventure contents, plus special suspension calibration that allows for greater articulation, travel, and ground clearance. You also get Kevlar-enforced off-road tires (18 or 20 inch), an anti-glare hood decal, and slightly revised front-end styling. The interior features gunmetal trim and black leather and suede upholstery with red stitching. Rock rails are a standalone option. Other equipment and options are similar to the Limited.

Jeep Grand Cherokee


Builds on the Limited with navigation and the Luxury Group II contents as standard. Additional upgrades include 20-inch wheels, a towing package, power-folding mirrors, and wood steering wheel trim. All other option groups continue.

Jeep Grand Cherokee


Comes loaded with all of the comfort and convenience features available on the other trims, plus a 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, wood interior trim, active noise cancellation, a suede headliner, an extended Laguna leather interior, polished alloy wheels, and LED foglamps. The Summit shares its updated front fascia with the Trailhawk.

Jeep Grand Cherokee


Carries the 6.4-liter V8 and a host of other performance upgrades such as an adaptive suspension, Brembo brakes, sport seats, specially tuned steering, and performance tires. Comfort and convenience features are similar to the Summit, minus the fancy trim.

CarsDirect Tip

The Limited is the sweet spot in the lineup for most buyers. You get a lot of equipment for your money and access to high-end options if you want them. If you don't need heavy-duty towing capability, you can save thousands on the Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, and Summit by sticking with the base V6 engine.

The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a perfectly suitable family SUV that's also ready to head off-road, and top versions are downright luxurious.

Pricing and Equipment

Standard features across the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup include:

  • 17-inch wheels
  • Rearview camera
  • Parking sensors
  • 5.0-inch LCD touchscreen for audio — or you can upgrade to an 8.4-incher

Buyers looking for a comfortable and versatile family vehicle should be satisfied with the base Laredo, Laredo E, or Limited trims, which start at $31,390 (including $995 destination charge), $33,690, and $38,990, respectively.The Limited is a step up in materials and features chrome door handles, power driver and passenger seats, roof rails, remote start, and a heated leather steering wheel.

Drivers looking for a little more luxury should target the $44,795 Overland or $50,495 Summit versions. Equipment and features improve greatly on these models, with their leather trimmed seats, 8.4-inch UConnect infotainment systems, and heated leather/genuine wood steering wheels. The Summit distances itself from the Overland thanks to its 19-speaker surround-sound stereo, polished aluminum wheels, and host of safety features, including blind spot sensors, forward and rear collision warning, lane keep assist, and lane departure warning.

Rounding out the versatile Grand Cherokee lineup is the off-road-oriented Trailhawk and the performance SRT variant. The Trailhawk starts at $44,090 and gets a unique front bumper with a colored grille, all terrain tries, and added skid plates. The SRT, which has a starting MSRP of $67,890, masters on-road performance with its 6.4-liter, 475-horsepower V8 engine. Chrysler says it goes 0-60 in 4.8 seconds.

Under the hood, the base 3.6-liter V6 makes 295 horsepower, but drivers can also opt for a 5.7-liter, 360-horsepower V8 or the efficient 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6. All four engine options are paired to an eight-speed automatic.

Performance Pros

Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • The 2017 Grand Cherokee wide range of engine options allows it to meet almost every need, from fuel-sipper to trail raider to straight-line rocket to commuter.
  • With responsive steering and smooth road manners, the Grand Cherokee is one of the best riding and handling SUVs in the class. And that doesn't go away when drivers head off-road either.

Performance Cons

  • The optional V8 engine doesn't offer enough everyday improvement to make its penalty in fuel economy worth it.
  • It's a Jeep – why is rear-wheel drive even an option?
  • The Diesel engine is noisy at low speeds.

Interior Pros

  • The spacious and finely finished interior holds up against rival luxury models.
  • The perfect combination of cargo space and second-row legroom.
  • Materials and textures step up in a big way in Limited, Overland, and Summit models, giving these customers a near-luxury experience in terms of comfort and quality.

Interior Cons

Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • The flat cloth seats on base Laredo models pale in comparison to the comfortable seating in other versions.
  • Big square mirrors sometimes lead to noticeable wind noise at higher speeds.

The Most Pleasant Surprise

We found the 2017 Grand Cherokee's most underrated talent to be its ability to carry five adults and cargo with ease. Seat cushions are wide and supportive on all models beside the base Laredo, and its large doors open up 78 degrees for easy entry/exit. Leg room is adult-friendly in the front and back, while storage capacity remains very good.

The Least Pleasant Surprise

The Grand Cherokee's biggest red flag is its below average crash-test scores and lack of some standard safety gear. Auto emergency braking is an option only available on the Limited trim and above. Grand Cherokee is not an IIHS Top Safety Pick and rear-drive models only scored 4-stars with the NHTSA. However, 4WD models do carry a 5-star NHTSA rating.

The Bottom Line

The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers plenty of versatility, utility and luxury, making it a benchmark SUV suited to fit almost every need. It's only let down by its poor crash-test ratings and average fuel economy.
