The Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of America’s most recognizable full-size luxury sedans. While the general appearance of the vehicle has been tweaked over the years to represent the latest developments in automotive style, it has always maintained a distinctive look that blends extravagance with utility.
The Grand Cherokee is equally suited to delivering you to downtown appointments in style or going on an off-road adventure. The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee is poised to continue this versatility with the vehicle’s newest updated features.
The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee comes in several trim levels: the Laredo, the Laredo E, the Altitude, the Limited, the Sterling Edition, the Trailhawk, the Overland, the High Altitude, the Summit, the SRT, and the Trackhawk. The Trackhawk is Jeep’s definitive flagship model. It features 707 horsepower, 645 pounds per foot of torque, 20-inch titanium wheels, and comes at an MSRP of $85,900.
However, this represents only the highest bracket of the Grand Cherokee lineup; lower-cost trims are available, starting with the Laredo at an MSRP of $30,595. With a wide array of models to choose from, there truly is a Jeep Grand Cherokee for everyone.
Engine choices are largely similar to the vehicle’s 2017 counterpart. Options include a 295-horsepower 3.06-liter V6 engine, a 360-horsepower 5.7-liter V8 engine, a 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel V6 engine, and a 475-horsepower 6.4-liter V8 engine.
The manufacturer expects that the result of all this engine power will be the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk’s ability to rate as the fastest SUV in the world (60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds).
If you opt for an automatic transmission, you’ll be able to utilize the benefits of rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, or four-wheel drive, depending on the situational needs of the terrain you’re exploring. Reviews have praised the Grand Cherokee’s steering and handling; you can expect relaxed highway cruising or unflinching trail driving, depending on where your road takes you.
The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee retains the reasonable fuel economy of its 2017 predecessor, which is considered to be efficient according to the standards of the SUV vehicle class.
Depending on the level of trim you select, you can expect to enjoy real metal interior accents, a leather-trimmed dashboard, and leather seating. Other trim levels offer a cloth interior in a variety of patterns and colors. The interior of the vehicle is spacious and roomy; taller drivers and passengers will be rewarded with ample headspace and legroom. The cabin also comes with the latest in climate control technology and infotainment touchscreen displays.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee usually receives four or five-star crash test ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee sports the same safety features that have earned it this distinction in the past.
Air bags and latches for child seats are not the only standards; adaptive cruise control, automated emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane-departure alerts, automatic high beams, and parking sensors all combine to create a version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee that is more safety-conscious than ever before.
