Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a benchmark SUV; it's a luxury vehicle, a talented off-roader, a scalding-hot track runner, and a family wagon extraordinaire.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a great family vehicle—just one that's also potentially ready to go off-road, tow a trailer or, on occasion, do things that are more workhorse-like than you'd attempt in most other typical family crossovers.

Pros
Premium look and feel
Responsive 8-speed automatics
Ecodiesel's 30-mpg rating, 730-mile range
Easy-to-use infotainment
SRT is fit for track time

Cons
Quite pricey, to be without a luxury badge
Grille design still not in alignment
Hemi is too thirsty for what it provides
No rearview camera on base Laredo

The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee ranks 8 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee gives you the best of both worlds: a rough-and-ready off-road SUV with a handsome, refined interior and comfortable performance on pavement.

Pros
Excellent off-road capabilities
Powerful engine lineup
Upscale cabin
Intuitive infotainment system

Cons
Small cargo space

A Trailhawk model with extra off-road kit debuts for 2017, while the top-of-the-line Summit gets slightly revised styling and additional luxury-oriented interior garnishes. Newly available features include a self-parking system and lane departure warning. A rearview camera and rear parking sensors are now standard on every Grand Cherokee.

Pros
Appealing engines, including a thrifty diesel V6 and a brawny V8
Enough off-road ability to conquer practically any trail
Plush interior with plentiful luxury and technology
Impressive tow ratings for the class

Cons
Diesel engine is noisy at idle and low speeds
Ride quality may disappoint, even with air suspension
