How many trims are offered?

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is an authority among SUVs in part because of the diversity offered through the development of eight trims, the highlights of which include three trims that each proudly owns a best in class distinction. Built on the already loaded base Laredo trim (ft. standard amenities that include: heated mirrors, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth, 7-inch touchscreen, and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio) there is the Trailhawk (best in class 4x4 capability), the Summit (most luxurious in class), and the Trackhawk (the most powerful SUV ever). Each comes with its own unique set of up to the minute standard exterior and interior conveniences like an upgraded adaptive suspension with Brembo brakes and lightweight 20-inch wheels with high-performance tires (in the case of the Trackhawk), or a self-parking system, noise-reducing window glass, active noise-canceling technology, upgraded leather upholstery with diamond-quilted accents, and a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system in the case of the Summit.

What kind of engine is under the hood?

As much as talent and potential are the means by which the greats are often recognized, you can't reach the heights Jeep has without incredible strength of heart. Enter the four engines that pump power through the veins of the Grand Cherokee. The standard engine is a 3.6-liter 24-valve V6 that achieves a well-rounded 295 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque that's paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. On some of the trims, the 3.6-liter V6 can be optioned out for a 5.7-liter V8 with 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque and also an eight-speed automatic transmission. The third engine, a 6.4-liter HEMI SRT V8, takes a major leap forward in terms of power and versatility. Featuring seven drive modes (Auto, Sport, Track, Snow, Tow, Eco, and Valet) the HEMI can tow up to 7,200 lbs., largely thanks to 475 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. Then there is, of course, the Trackhawk exclusive 6.2-liter HEMI V8 which roars the Grand Cherokee to the title of "fastest accelerating", "quickest quarter-mile time", and "highest torque" in the SUV class.

What safety and security technology is available?

Beneath all the glitter and shine of the awards and the power and the extravagant features, there is an underlying commitment to safety that has been the backbone of consumers' consistent approval of the Grand Cherokee. Front and rear crumple come standard along with seven advanced multi-stage airbags, an enhanced accident response system, and hill start assist. Overall there are over 70 available safety features, the likes of which include: available SOS call and assist buttons, connecting you with 911 or roadside assistance, and a Valet Mode which limits the vehicle's engine ability when you're not in the car.
