Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee ranked #4 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Jeep Grand Cherokee has a score of 8.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 71 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Outstanding off-road chops
Potent engine options
Handsome, comfortable cabin
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Mixed crash test scores
Less cargo space than most midsize SUVs

Jeep is here to help you out by stuffing a 707-hp supercharged V8 into the nose of the new Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. It's more performance-focused than the existing 475-hp SRT. Finally, the 7-inch touchscreen is now standard; the 8.4-inch screen remains optional.

PROS
Plush interior with plentiful luxury and technology
Enough off-road ability to conquer practically any trail
Available V8 engines offer substantial power
Impressive tow ratings for the class

CONS
Limited cargo capacity compared to top rivals
Firm ride quality may disappoint, even with air suspension

Under the skin it’s a true Jeep: a stout, off-road capable machine. That doesn’t mean it’s a chore to drive on-road; the big Jeep’s an easygoing, high-utility companion that can be had as an unpretentious workhorse, a leather-lined luxo-ute, or something in between.he Grand Cherokee offers a class-leading infotainment system, and the higher trim levels can be equipped with a host of active safety technologies including automated emergency braking.

Pros
All-terrain confidence,
multiplicity of models,
fantastic infotainment interface.

Cons
Thirsty gasoline engines,
mediocre warranty coverage,
not as spacious as rivals.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler skips over the on-road part of the driving test, and heads straight for the hills.

Pros
The undisputed off-road champion
Singular style
Smooth and strong V-6
A few concessions to modernity inside

Cons
Rough-and-tumble ride
Poor on-road handling
Expensive high-end editions
Remarkably poor safety scores
Soft tops are fussy to use

The Jeep Wrangler is completely redesigned for 2018. Note that this review covers the new Wrangler. The previous-generation model, the Wrangler JK, is covered separately.

PROS
Unrelentingly capable off-road
Maintains the rugged Jeep character
Increased capability and comfort compared to old models
Extensive customization options from the factory and aftermarket

CONS
Mild towing capability for an otherwise highly capable rig
Less cargo space than some conventional crossovers
Standard V6 engine is a little underwhelming

By: 
edmunds.com

Pros
There are few vehicles more capable off-road than the Wrangler JK. Equipped with removable doors, a removable roof, and a fold-down windshield, the four-wheel-drive Wrangler JK is one of the most fun and proficient ways to explore off the beaten path or to feel the wind in your hair. It’s also hard not to fall for the Wrangler JK’s charming and simple design, which can trace its roots back to the Willys MB Jeep of World War II fame.

Cons
The Wrangler JK’s off-road capability comes at the cost of its on-road manners. Live front and rear axles do the Wrangler JK’s ride quality no favors. The body also rolls precariously in turns, and the stability-control system regularly cuts in to prevent the droptop SUV from actually rolling over. Wind noise is exceptionally loud at highway speeds, and this Jeep drinks gas like it’s at an open bar. The available touchscreen infotainment system also is slow to respond to inputs and suffers from poor ergonomics.
