The 2019 Grand Cherokee is the continuation of one of Jeep’s most popular models. Rugged yet city-ready, the Grand Cherokee perfectly straddles the line between domestic life and grand adventure. Here’s a quick guide to the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
The 2019 Grand Cherokee is available in an impressive number of different trim levels and packages. The trim levels available are the Laredo, Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, Summit, SRT, and Trackhawk. Various packages are available for each level to offer aesthetic, convenience, and luxury upgrades.
The Laredo is the base model and comes with 17-inch wheels. Its SUV frame allows the Grand Cherokee to easily transition to civilian life after off-road adventures. Next is the Limited, which is more comfort-oriented and includes 18-inch wheels, a power liftgate, and auto-dimming mirrors.
The Trailhawk is the off-road choice with 18-inch wheels, off-road tires, unique exterior styling, and underbody skid plates. The Overland is similarly equipped but without some of the off-roading equipment.
The Summit is for drivers looking for a luxurious experience. It includes 20-inch wheels, noise-reducing window glass, and active noise-canceling technology. The SRT is similar but has a sport body kit and performance tires. Finally, the Trackhawk adds aggressive bodywork and lightweight performance tires.
Buyers can pick from several engine options for the 2019 Grand Cherokee. The base engine model is a 3.6-liter V-6 with an eight-speed automatic transmission, capable of producing 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. A 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 and 5.7-liter V-8, which produce 420 horsepower and 360 horsepower respectively, are also available. The SRT gets a 6.4-liter V-8 that can pump out 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. Finally, the Trackhawk gets the incredible 6.2-liter V-8, which puts out a monstrous 707 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque.
The performance of the Grand Cherokee truly depends on the trim level you select. Performance-minded drivers will get the best results from the SRT, with its specialized all-wheel-drive system, adaptive sport-tuned suspension, and a limited-slip rear differential, or the high-performance Trackhawk, with its upgraded eight-speed transmission, adaptive suspension, and Brembo brakes.
For adventurous drivers, the Trailhawk and Overland are the ways to go. The Trailhawk boasts performance-enhancing off-road equipment like four-wheel drive with low-range gears and electronic rear differential paired with a terrain-selectable traction control system.
The interior of every trim level is comfortable and well appointed. Available features include a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, heated steering wheel and seating, 7-inch infotainment touchscreen with smartphone integration, and leather upholstery. The different trim levels also have unique interior flourishes to distinguish them from one another. The infotainment interface is easy to navigate and is hooked in with a voice control system to reduce driver distraction.
The 2019 Grand Cherokee is loaded with active safety features. These include an available self-parking system, parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot warning. Other features include navigation, rear cross-traffic alert, and a bevy of off-road oriented alerts and systems for the trail-designed models.
