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

For 2017, the GMC Yukon XL now adds automatic low-speed emergency braking to the existing forward collision warning system and a teen-driver management system. Cooled seats have now been replaced with ventilated seats, the input capability for the rear entertainment system has been updated, and a head-up instrument display is standard with the Denali trim.

Pros
Seating for up to nine passengers
Nicer interior than other truck-based, full-size SUVs
All-terrain mobility with four-wheel drive
Tow rating is higher than average for the class.

Cons
The Yukon XL's size and weight make it less maneuverable around town
Lazy throttle response makes it feel weaker than it is
Only the base model delivers nine-passenger capacity
Utility of cargo space is compromised by a high load floor.

In the world of full-size family SUVs, the 2017 GMC Yukon stands head and shoulders above the rest. The Yukon, with its longer sibling, the Yukon XL, is more modern in design than the aging Ford Expedition and Toyota Sequoia, yet its abilities are in full view, reminding all competitors that this slick big rig is still a workhorse at heart. While SLE and SLT trim get by with a 355-horsepower 5.3-liter V8, the Denali trims are equipped with a 420-horsepower 6.2-liter unit that knows no equal in this class. And while it’s true the Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator can tow more weight, neither can match the Yukon’s cutting-edge styling, driver assists or optional technology features.

Pros
If you need the big hauling, towing and cargo abilities of a full-size SUV, GMC’s Yukon, Yukon XL and Denali SUVs for 2017 have all the bases covered. You’ll get style, supreme luxury and cutting-edge features, plus with the XL, added space that a Nissan Armada or Toyota Sequoia can’t match.

Cons
The 2017 GMC Yukon XL is a big SUV that at times can feel like a bull in a china shop. If you just need room for seven or eight passengers, a more maneuverable midsize-crossover SUV like the GMC Acadia Limited, Honda Pilot or Ford Explorer might be a better choice.
