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.
