0  comments

Need a full-size SUV to ferry your family around? Look no further than the Jeep Grand Cherokee. This terrific all-rounder can meet the needs of just about any family with its wonderful blend of style, performance, refinement, comfort, and technology. Similar to its Jeep siblings, it also delivers extraordinary off-road capability, making it ideal for the adventurous family. Let’s take a closer look at the specifications and features of the 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee to determine whether it’s the right SUV for you.

What’s New for 2024?

The Grand Cherokee has recently undergone a major refresh, so it remains virtually unchanged for the 2024 model year. The only notable update is a set of new 18-inch polished aluminum wheels for the midrange Limited trim. Other than that, the Jeep SUV continues to offer the same capabilities and features that have made it a highly rated entry in its class.

Trim Levels and Prices

The 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers the same nine-trim lineup as its predecessor. The variants include the base Laredo A, Laredo, Laredo X, Altitude, Limited, Overland, the adventure-ready Trailhawk, Summit, and the lavishly appointed Summit Reserve. If you choose the Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, Summit, or Summit Reserve trim, you have the option of equipping your SUV with a plug-in hybrid powertrain. In addition, the Grand Cherokee is available in a three-row, extended-wheelbase version, which is known as the Grand Cherokee L.

The Laredo A comes with a base MSRP of $36,495, while the Summit Reserve costs $69,840 or more. These prices are competitive in the full-size SUV segment, but you can save even more if you qualify for the financial incentives available for new Jeep purchases.

Performance

All gasoline-powered models of the 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee use a 3.6-liter V-6 engine that generates 293 horsepower. Paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, this engine operates smoothly and makes the SUV feel competent both on and off the tarmac. However, if you’re looking for a more spirited driving experience, the plug-in hybrid powertrain is a better option. This system consists of a 2.0-liter turbo-four and an electric motor, which combine to deliver 375 horsepower and goes from zero to 60 mph in an impressive 5.3 seconds. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and four-wheel drive is available as an option.

Although it’s a hefty vehicle, the 2024 Grand Cherokee drives like a smaller SUV. This Jeep is light on its feet and easy to maneuver, making it a great choice for your daily commute. It’s also fitted with a compliant suspension that does a fine job of soaking up bumps and potholes, giving you a smooth and composed ride.

The Grand Cherokee also performs well off the beaten path. Regular models are more than capable of handling light off-roading thanks to their rugged bodies and 8.4 inches of ground clearance. However, if you plan to take your SUV deep into the wilderness, consider getting the Trailhawk. This model can conquer the harshest terrain with its adjustable air suspension, disconnecting anti-roll bar, electronic limited-slip differential, and other off-road features.

Fuel Economy

When equipped with the gasoline V-6 engine, the Jeep Grand Cherokee returns 19/26 mpg (city/highway), which is respectable for a large SUV. If you mostly drive in an urban environment, you can reduce your fuel costs by getting the hybrid powertrain, which is rated at 23/24 mpg.

Interior

One of the highlights of the 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee is its interior build quality. This Jeep SUV features a stylish and upscale cabin complete with soft-touch materials and aesthetically pleasing accents. Higher trims look and feel downright opulent with luxury features such as open-pore wood trim, quilted leather upholstery, and massaging front seats.

The regular Grand Cherokee has a seating capacity of five, whereas the three-row Grand Cherokee L can accommodate up to seven people. The seats are well padded and supportive, and they remain comfortable even after hours of driving. Legroom and headroom are generous in the first and second rows and adequate in the optional third row.

Cargo Capacity

The cargo capacity of the 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee varies depending on the wheelbase configuration. The regular version offers 37.7 cubic feet of storage space behind the back seats and 70.8 cubic feet if you fold those seats down. If you opt for the Grand Cherokee L, you’ll get 17.2 cubic feet behind the third-row seats, 46.9 cubic feet behind the middle-row seats, and 84.6 cubic feet behind the front seats.

Infotainment Features

Few full-size SUVs offer a longer list of standard infotainment features than the Jeep Grand Cherokee. This Jeep comes standard with an 8.4-inch touch-screen display, a 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster, Bluetooth, Amazon Alexa, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, HD radio, USB ports, a Wi-Fi hotspot, voice recognition, and a six-speaker audio system. For a better experience, you can get upgrades such as a 10.1-inch touch-screen display, a 10.25-inch front-passenger touch screen, a rear-seat entertainment system, wireless device charging, navigation, and a nine- or 19-speaker audio system.

Safety Features

New vehicles come with an array of driver-assistance features to help reduce your risk of an accident, and the 2024 Grand Cherokee is no different. Even the entry-level model offers a wide selection of driver aids, which include forward automated emergency braking, forward-collision alert, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go, lane departure alert, lane-keeping assistance, blind-spot detection, rear cross-traffic warning, and rear parking sensors. The optional features available include a head-up display, front parking sensors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a 360-degree camera system.
