Even though the SUV and crossover market significantly expands in the last decade, the Jeep Grand Cherokee still keeps its high position in this segment. Primarily this model is designed to please the needs of the larger family. However, its off-road capabilities and towing power allow its owner to conquer some heavier duties too. When you combine above mentioned with the Uconnect infotainment system and other High Tech features that this model offers, it is understandable why it is so popular.
1. Jeep Grand Cherokee Has High-Performance Powertrains
Probably the most important aspect that separates Jeep Grand Cherokee from the other SUV models is the variety of the engines under the hood. The base engine is the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with its 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Combined with the eight-speed automatic transmission its gas consumption is around 26 mpg combined. Some Competitive SUVs cannot offer these figures even with the higher trims.
The stronger option is a 6.4-liter V8. This mill produces 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. When you combine this with an adaptive suspension and a performance-tuned steering system it brings driving close to perfection.
2. Amazing design
Aside performance, the design is also a great trump for the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee new generation. The well-known extended grill will be slightly revised with some new chrome details. Combined with new headlights and new side curves it will leave many potential buyers breathless. 20-inch aluminum wheels will come as standard with the new SUV.
3. Interior comfort
New Grand Cherokee can accommodate five adults easily but also a version with the third row will be produced. Thanks to the comfort and ergonomic seats this SUV is perfect for longer trips. Additionally, two-zone air-condition is also helpful for this matter. About gadgets, the Jeep arrives with the new infotainment system. It includes 7-inch digital touchscreen display and it’s also equipped with Uconnect voice command, Bluetooth, navigation and other useful features.
4. Safety always matters
Safety was always top notch with all Grand Cherokee models and the new one is not an exception. It will be equipped with a backup camera and parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, and lane departure intervention. In the case of the emergency, the automatic braking system will always be activated.
5. Price Tag
For some SUV lovers, price plays a big role. In this segment, new Jeep Grand Cherokee for 2019 will also be competitive. Its starting price should be around $31,000 and the AWD will cost you $500 extra. However, this price tag is reserved for the base model only. The Summit model will be around $54,000 while the SRT can go over $68,000.
