The 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee continues the legacy of an SUV known for its reliability, good looks, and flexible interior. It’s also a performance vehicle since you can take it off-road without thinking twice. The Grand Cherokee offers multiple trim levels. A plug-in hybrid option is available for 2024, along with the gasoline engine selection. You can get through your day in comfort and confidence when you drive a Jeep SUV. Read on as our Huffines Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram (CJDR) Plano team shares more about the 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee and what it offers Plano drivers.
An SUV That Packs a Punch
The 2024 model year offers both gasoline and hybrid powertrains. All 2024 Grand Cherokee trim levels have the same gasoline engine unless you choose the three-row Grand Cherokee L, and a plug-in hybrid 4xe powertrain is available. The engine specs are as follows:
- A 3.6-liter dual overhead camshaft V-6 offering 293 horsepower.
- A 2.0-liter 270-horsepower inline-four engine, a 134-horsepower electric motor, and a 14.0 kWh battery pack producing 375 horsepower.
- A 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 making 357 horsepower (available on the three-row L).
All engines receive the same eight-speed automatic transmission, and shift controls are on the steering wheel.
The fuel economy for the V-6 is 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway for rear-wheel-drive models. When using the gasoline engine alone, the hybrid achieves 23 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. The electric motor operates by itself for up to 25 miles on a full charge. When the hybrid 4xe assists the engine, it can reach an estimated 470 miles and achieve 56 MPGe.
The Grand Cherokee has drivetrains that include two-wheel, four-wheel, and all-wheel drive, which is also standard for models with the 4xe engine. The Grand Cherokee Trailhawk 4xe has equipment that can handle the rigors of off-roading and features an adjustable air suspension for a maximum ground clearance of 10.9 inches.
An Upgraded Interior
Technology sweeps the dashboard from driver to passenger with the optional front passenger screen, standard 10.1-inch touch screen with Uconnect, and 10.25-inch digital cluster display. A head-up display for you and Amazon Fire TV for your passengers is available. The passenger screen also features navigation software that lets your front-seat passenger find the best route and send it to the driver’s display.
The interior has premium seating materials and electric seats with up to 12 adjustments. A massage mode is available, but it’s standard on the Overland trim and above. You can also add an internal multicolor ambient LED lighting system with controls. All these options give the 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s interior a luxurious atmosphere.
The Grand Cherokee comes with the option of two or three rows of seating to accommodate anywhere from five to seven passengers. The second row features best-in-class legroom, and the third has an available power-folding bench. You can configure the rear seats to meet your cargo space and occupant needs.
The 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s trim levels and appearance packages include the following:
- Laredo A.
- Laredo X.
- Altitude X.
- Summit Reserve.
The 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe offers the following trims:
- Trailhawk 4xe.
- Overland 4xe.
- Summit 4xe.
- Summit Reserve 4xe.
Each trim level offers differing comfort levels. The Laredo A is the 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s base model, and the Summit is the top end of the trims with leather seating and other premium touches.
Not Your Typical Family SUV
Many consider the Grand Cherokee one of the best examples of a Jeep SUV, but it has evolved over the decades into a luxury vehicle that delivers on its four-wheel-drive heritage. You can take the Grand Cherokee over rocky terrain one day and head to the grocery store the next without skipping a beat. The Jeep Grand Cherokee’s heavy-duty construction enables it to perform on all terrain and roads without suffering a breakdown or sustaining lasting damage to its engine and suspension.
The 2024 Grand Cherokee is a family hauler with capacity for up to seven across flexible seating arrangements. Adding front-seat passenger entertainment and a co-pilot feature makes it easy for your passengers to play a role in how you get to your destination. Or you can let them relax and enjoy dashboard entertainment, something Jeep has never offered in the past. Back-seat passengers have access to various connectivity options to keep them entertained.
The Grand Cherokee’s interior provides a high-touch experience for everyone in the vehicle. You can enjoy an in-depth level of control, get granular data at a glance from the various displays, and find up-to-the-second information about the surrounding roadways. The 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee lets you stay in command no matter where you drive.
Four-Wheeling With the 4xe Hybrid Engine
It’s worth taking a closer look at the 4xe to see what Jeep has done to overcome the challenges of a hybrid four-wheel-drive SUV. The Quadra-Trac II four-wheel-drive system comes standard, and the Quadra-Drive II is available as an option. The 4xe stands out because it provides solid protection for the battery pack by making it watertight and reinforcing the housing to guard against impact.
If you want the torque of electric power to get through tough terrain, you can get this and more with the 4xe. Jeep engineers worked hard to overcome the safety issues inherent to battery packs, and they delivered.
