Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

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

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

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

2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee OVERVIEW

The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee may not have the same iconic look as its off-road-oriented brethren, the Jeep Wrangler, but for those that want to be able to take a 300-mile journey in comfort and then do some serious off-roading, the Grand Cherokee hits the nail on the head. A new version is, supposedly, right around the corner. Until that SUV arrives, the Grand Cherokee continues to impress with its style, luxury features, and, of course, ability to traverse rough terrain.

What's New For 2019

There's a new Limited X model that's equipped with bespoke front and rear fascias, a different hood, exterior accents finished in Granite Crystal, and 20-inch wheels. The rest of the lineup benefits from blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto courtesy of a new standard 8.4-inch screen. Grand Cherokee Overland and Summit trims get new 20-inch wheels, while three new exterior paint schemes have been added to the SUV: Slate Blue, Green Metallic, and Sting Gray.

Choosing Your Grand Cherokee

There's no shortage of trims to choose from with the Grand Cherokee. Besides the SRT and Trackhawk trims, the Grand Cherokee is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 that's rated to make 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. When properly configured, the 3.6-liter V6 is rated to get an EPA-estimated 19 miles per gallon city, 26 mpg highway, and 21 combined.

While the standard V6 will be enough for the majority of consumers, the Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, and Summit can be fitted with a turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6 that's good for 240 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque as a $4,500 option. Jeep hasn't released fuel economy figures for the diesel motor yet, but the previous model was rated to get 22/30/25 mpg (city/highway/combined).

Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, and Summit trims also have an optional 5.7-liter V8. The motor may be expensive, as it's an $3,295 option, but it raises power to 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. Towing is the best for the motor, as it's rated to tow up to 7,200 pounds. Fuel economy checks in at 14/22/17 mpg.

If getting a SUV with supercar-like performance sounds good, only the SRT and Trackhawk trims will do. The SRT features a 6.4-liter V8 cranking out 475 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. The Trackhawk ups the ante with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that's rated to make 707 hp and 645 lb-ft of torque. Despite its weight, the Trackhawk can get to 60 miles per hour in just 3.5 seconds. If fuel economy really matters to you, look at other trims, because the Trackhawk is rated to get up to 11/17/13 mpg.

While rear-wheel drive is standard, the Grand Cherokee wouldn't be a Jeep if it wasn't available with a sturdy four-wheel-drive system. Depending on what trim you go with, four-wheel drive can cost between $2,000 and $3,000. Some trims, like the Trailhawk, SRT, and Trackhawk come with four-wheel drive as standard.

There are 12 trims to explore:


The most affordable way to get into the Grand Cherokee is the Laredo, which costs $33,190 (all prices include the $1,495 destination charge). Standard interior features include dual-zone automatic climate control, cloth upholstery, a seven-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a six-speaker audio system, power windows, power door locks, two 12-volt power outlets, and a leather-wrapped shift knob. Exterior features include 17-inch wheels, heated exterior side-view mirrors, automatic headlights, LED taillights, fog lights, and a rear spoiler. There are no available packages for the entry-level trim.

Laredo E

The Laredo E is the next step up and starts at $35,040. The trim doesn't add a whole bunch of standard features, but things like chrome roof rails, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, and an eight-way manually adjustable passenger seat.

Unlike the base Laredo, the Laredo E can be fitted with six available packages. The Trailer Tow Group IV ($795) adds a seven- and four-pin wiring harness, a Class IV receiver hitch, a full-size spare tire, heavy-duty engine cooling, and rear load-leveling suspension.The Appearance Group ($895) comes with black tubular side steps, a bright pedal kit, and front and rear door entry guards. The Chrome Edition Group ($995) includes chrome exterior mirrors, a bright pedal kit, a chrome exhaust tip, chrome tubular side steps, and front and rear door entry guards. Ticking the box for the Security and Convenience Group ($2,000) adds a 115-volt power outlet, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a power liftgate, a security alarm, and a remote start system. Adding 18-inch wheels is an extra $1,895 and also brings an 8.4-inch display and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with it. Finally, with four-wheel drive selected, the All Wather Trail Rated Package ($1,695) becomes available. It brings an engine block heater, a fuel tank skid plate shield, remote start, an underbody skid plate, transfer case skid plate, a front suspension skid plate, tow hooks, Jeep's Quadra-Trac II 4WD system, Jeep's Selec-Terrain system, slush mats, a cargo area liner, hill descent control, a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, a full-size spare tire, and a "Trail Rated" badge.

The Trailer-Tow Group IV, Chrome Edition Group, and Appearance Group packages return unchanged.

The trim comes with 20-inch wheels, a SRT hood, the 8.4-inch infotainment system, Granite Crystal exterior accents, Limited X badges, black interior trim pieces, Liquid Titanium finishes, and unique heritage seats. With four-wheel drive selected, buyers can choose the Jeep Advanced Active Safety Group ($1,495) that brings a host of safety features, including adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, full-speed forward collision warning, lane departure warning, parallel and perpendicular park assist, and rain-sensitive windshield wipers.


Those looking to do some serious off-roading should explore the Trailhawk, as it's the most off-road-oriented trim in the lineup. The model starts at $45,540 and comes with a variety of features that make it better at off-roading. Rugged features include an electronic limited-slip differential in the rear, Jeep's Selec-Terrain system, the automaker's Quadra-Trac II 4WD system, red tow hooks, heavy-duty engine cooling, skid plates, and off-road air suspension. On the inside, the Trailhawk trim adds some more comfort features, including ventilated front seats, a nine-speaker audio system, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen. The Jeep Advanced Active Safety Group, Interior Metal Package, and Rear Seat Dual Screen Blu-Ray/DVD Player packages cost the same and bring the same features as on lower trims.

The Trailhawk Luxury Group ($2,995) is bespoke to the trim and adds automatic high-beam control, an automatic headlight leveling system, bi-xenon HID headlights, a cargo compartment cover, a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, LED daytime running lights, LED fog lights, a power tilt-and-telescopic steering column, rain-sensitive windshield wipers, and Trailhawk leather-trimmed seats with perforation.

With four-wheel drive, buyers can choose the Quadra-Drive II 4WD System ($795) that includes an rear electronic limited slip differential and Selec-Terrain system and the Off-Road Adventure II package ($1,095).

High Altitude

The Rear Seat Dual Screen Blu-Ray/DVD Player ($1,995) and the Quadra-Drive II 4WD System ($795), which is only offered on models with four-wheel drive, are offered on the trim.

The Trailer Tow Group IV and Rear Seat Dual Screen Blu-Ray/DVD Player also return, while buyers who choose four-wheel drive can choose the Skid Plate Group ($295) to get skid plates for the front suspension, fuel tank, transfer case, and underbody.


The SRT trim is the first of the performance-oriented trims and is powered by the 457-hp 6.4-liter Hemi V8. The model costs $69,640 and comes with some extra performance parts, which include a Quadra-Trac II 4WD system, a Bilstein active suspension, Brembo brakes, dual exhaust tips, and steering-wheel-mounted shifters. Other standard features include nappa leather upholstery, aluminum pedals, a flat-bottom steering wheel, and carbon-fiber inserts.

The Trailer-Tow Group IV, Signature Leather-Wrapped Interior Package ($5,295), and Rear Seat Dual Screen Blu-Ray/DVD Player return, while the High Performance Audio ($2,095) package brings an 825-watt amplifier and the 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.


At the top of the range sits the Trackhawk. It's the most expensive Grand Cherokee with a price of $88,145, but it's also the most powerful with 707 hp. Over the SRT trim, the Trackhawk gets black chrome quad exhaust, yellow Brembo brakes and 20-inch wheels. Available packages mirror those on the SRT trim, though the Signature Leather-Wrapped Interior Package only costs $4,995 here.

CarsDirect Tip

As appealing as the 707-hp Trackhawk sounds, being able to eclipse $100,000 in a Grand Cherokee isn't something we recommend average buyers do. Instead, with so many options to choose from, narrowing down a 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee trim mostly comes down to your budget. While it may seem like a large jump up from the base Laredo, the Limited trim is the one we'd go with. It has a lengthy list of standard features, allows you to choose between three engines, and the latest safety tech with the Jeep Advanced Active Safety Group. Buyers who want to go off-roading will also want to tick the box for the Off-Road Adventure II package.
