You can buy a Jeep Grand Cherokee almost any way you’d like, from a 2-wheel-drive soft-roader to a 707-horsepower track star. But with prices that range from close to $30,000 to over $100,000, which version of the Grand Cherokee provides the best value?
Shop for the new 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee on CarGurus:
Jeep has built a reputation for off-road-capable vehicles, and the 2019 Grand Cherokee is no exception. While trims like the SRT and Trackhawk are decidedly focused on on-road performance, other trims, from the base Laredo to the off-road specialist Trailhawk are designed to deliver the goods on and off the tarmac. Most Grand Cherokees employ a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 295 horsepower, although a V8 is optional (and another pair of V8s come exclusively in the high-performance variants).
Despite its impressive exterior styling, the Grand Cherokee is a little light on cargo space, with 36.3 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 68.3 cubes with that seat folded. It’s well-shaped but less than what you’ll find in other 2-row SUVs.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto joins a feast of other capabilities on the optional upgraded Uconnect infotainment system. The voice-recognition system works well and you’ll be able to pair your iPhone via Bluetooth with little difficulty.
Unfortunately, the Grand Cherokee is hardly a fuel-efficient vehicle, with an EPA rating of 21 miles per gallon in combined driving for the most fuel-efficient engine (the V6). Nor is it particularly safe, when compared with other competitors. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave it a Marginal rating for small overlap frontal-impact protection for the driver, and an even worse Poor rating for small overlap frontal-impact protection for the front passenger.

I have mine for almost four years. Mine has run flawlessly. So far, no issues. And there is no glare in the driver’s eyes from any shiny surfaces in the cabin. That’s silly nonsense. I would buy it again without hesitation. But, true about the gas mileage. I get about 19 combined. But this is a really nice vehicle.
What is interesting is I was worried about the safety rating and found out that they upgraded the 2019 model. On the IIHS site the 2019 Grand Cherokee has been rated a good rating in small offset on both driver and passenger sides. A pillar changes and door hinge changes apparently resolved the issue in past models. So just to be fair, while this was an issue in the past, it looks like 2019s have been updated.
I own a 2014 ecodiesel jeep. I disagree with almost every negative thing you said. My ecodiesel (tuned) gets 31mpg all the time going up and down Oregon's section of i5. It's supremely comfortable with the air suspension. I tow various trailers nearly every week ranging from 1500lbs to 6000lbs. I can tow up to 7200lbs and the Jeep feels like it's capable of my more no matter how much weight I put back there. Also, it's got 140,000mi and has received nothing but regular fluid changes.
The only negative thing I'll say is the programming for the 8 speed trans is horrible. It lunges during stop and go traffic due to starting in first. Basically, the diesel has so much torque, it needs to start in second when not towing, otherwise the creeping in stop and go is just aweful. Also, from the factory, they have the 8 speed downshift to 7th when you go up a 0.2% incline (not really, but it feels like it) which is completely unnecessary. The engine tune from gde has the programming attempting to have the engine lug using the power of the diesel, and it does help. I'm planning on getting their trans tune soon because after the ecodiesel emissions tune, FCA had all but ruined my drivability (trans shifting) and mpg. With that said, this is still my favorite, most capable towing and off roading, most comfortable utility vehicle I've ever owned. I've owned 2 durangos, one cherokee, one subaru wagon, another grand cherokee, and ultimately my 2014 ecodiesel.
Don't let this guy fool you with his boring review. This is a fantastic vehicle.
2014 JGC, 2015 JC, and 2016 JGC…couldn’t love these vehicles more! I get 23.8 on daily highway commute (2016 JGC) and 21.4 around town on the weekends. (I fill up this huge tank on the way home Friday’s, get the ~21.4 over the weekend, and by next Friday, I’m at ~ 23.8. 3.6L gas, it moves, and the weight let’s momentum work for you! Nothing wrong with this design/vehicle…can’t say the same for everything else that changes in 4-5 year cycles!
Been owning a JGC Sterling 2018 since March 2018 and after driving 46,000Km I would suggest by the extended 5 year bumper to bumper and you are set for whatever road may throw at you. I did cross canada/USA and with adaptive cruise and comfort – 5000km in 7 days seemed like a piece of cake, the worst snowstorm Ottawa got 2018/2019 with over 100CM of snow in jan – the snow mode turned on turns this SUV into a gliding machine on the highway. I pushed its tech to 140km/hr in snowfall on highways and everything responded as stated. added Bridgestone blizzaks in snow and it connect like a magnet to the road. If fuel efficiency is a concern one should get a small hatch or something, I get 12-15 litres per 100 km city and hwy mix. I have yet to meet a human who sits in the Jeep GC with pan-roof and comfort it provides and say its boring and I drove with it with all areas of my vehicle loaded and full of stuff when I moved from vancouver to ottawa – the more weight you put in it the better this beast drives…make sure you negotiate the price as there are great offers on these bad boys. #JEEPLIFE

Just don’t get into an accident. It’s up to you
