2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Review
Jeep Grand Cherokee is a mid-size SUV produced by the American manufacturer Jeep and is currently in its 5th generation. The Grand Cherokee competes with the VW Touareg, Porsche Cayenne, Audi Q7, BMW X6, Range Rover Sport and Mercedes ML/GLE.
The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee delivers good on- and off-road performance and it boasts a comfortable interior. However, it’s demoted to the center of our midsize SUV rankings since its safety and anticipated reliability ratings are low.
The Jeep Cherokee is genetically predisposed to off-road capability. You can choose a 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir inline-four engine or go for the 3.2-liter Pentastar V-6. All Grand Cherokees are offered with best-in-class four-wheel drive capability.
The 2018 Cherokee excels in many areas. There’s plenty of space, it’s simple to get in and out of, and the controls are fairly intuitive. You’re unlikely to spend much time thumbing through the owner’s manual.
There’s plenty of head- and legroom in the front, and there’s also plenty of space in the back. Bins for storage are strategically positioned throughout the cabin.
It appears to be well-made both inside and out, however, some of the inside trim pieces are just ordinary. Nothing, however, is likely to let you down.
The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee expertly strikes a balance between modern and traditional. While the front end and grille are not as bold as in the past, they go well with the rest of the package. It is no longer as blue-collar as it once was. Rather than that, it is more rich and pedigreed.
Compared to luxury-brand rivals, the Grand Cherokee is a fairly smart piece of design. The front aspect isn’t quite as aggressive as it once was, but it retains the Jeep-exclusive seven-slat grille. That grille is slightly thinner and smaller than it was previously, and it is understated in a category that prefers huge and chrome.
The Jeep Cherokee is genetically predisposed to off-road capability. It comes with the 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir inline-four engine as standard. Alternatively, choose the 3.2-liter Pentastar V-6 for the best-in-class V-6 fuel economy. Additionally, the best-in-class towing capabilities are included. Each Cherokee is offered with best-in-class four-wheel drive capability. Three 4×4 systems are offered, including the Trail Rated Jeep Active Drive Lock, which is capable of taming the most difficult off-road terrain. Selec-Terrain traction management is standard on all three. Simply select the setting that corresponds to the current conditions and you’re ready to go.
