Power and Performance

The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers a total of five engine options. The standard 3.6-liter V6 engine gives out 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque and is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission, and it only goes up from there. The available 5.7-liter V8 produces 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque, and the 3.0-liter diesel V6 generates 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. For even more power, the available 6.4-liter V8 engine provides 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, and if you really want to watch the world fly by, the available supercharged 6.2-liter V8 gives out a massive 707 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but both four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are available for extra control. When properly equipped, the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee can tow up to 7,200 pounds, and has a maximum payload of 1,320 pounds.

Safety

Jeep offers several available safety technologies to give you an extra set of eyes on the road... and an extra foot on the brake pedal. Available safety features include forward collision warning with automatic braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. You're in good hands in your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Technology

The standard 7-inch infotainment touchscreen on the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee features Bluetooth compatibility, making it easy for you to sync up your favorite devices to the standard six-speaker sound system. The available 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen brings Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration for enhanced smartphone connectivity, making it easy for you to stay connected wherever you go. The standard rearview camera and rear parking sensors make reversing and parking a breeze, and the available front parking sensors make it easier still. Of course, if you still have trouble parking, the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers a self-parking system, capable of handling both parallel and perpendicular parking. If your sense of direction is a little less than perfect, you'll appreciate the available navigation system.

Trim Levels

The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee is available in seven different trim levels: the Laredo, Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, Summit, SRT, and Trackhawk. Each one offers an increased level of comfort and capability; there is a right kind of 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee for every kind of driver. Each trim except for the Summit is Trail Rated tough. If you love taking your ride off the road, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk comes with special off-road features, including hill ascent and descent control, underbody skid plates, an electronic limited-slip rear differential and more. Interested in taking your Jeep Grand Cherokee to the track? The aptly-named Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk features a supercharged engine and upgraded Brembo brakes.

  

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs the Competition

While the Jeep Grand Cherokee does face some competition from the Honda Pilot and the Ford Explorer, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is the superior choice. Here are just a few reasons why:

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Honda Pilot

  • The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee has five engine options. The 2018 Honda Pilot only has one: a 3.5-liter V6, which only generates 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Jeep gives you the power of choice.
  • The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee is available in seven trim levels. The 2018 Honda Pilot is available in only five.
  • You won't have to worry about bottoming out in your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee, thanks to its 8.6 inches of ground clearance. The 2018 Honda Pilot only has 7.3 inches of ground clearance.
  • The most fuel-efficient configuration of the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee gets an EPA-estimated 22/30/25 city/highway/combined mpg. The most fuel-efficient configuration of the 2018 Honda Pilot gets 20/27/13 city/highway/combined mpg.
  • Satellite radio comes standard on the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It costs extra on the 2018 Honda Pilot.

 

  

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Ford Explorer

  • The standard engine in the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a 3.6-liter six-cylinder, which gives out 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The 2018 Ford Explorer has a standard 3.5-liter six-cylinder engine, which only gives out 290 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque. Jeep gives you more power right out of the gate.
  • The most powerful engine available to the 2018 Ford Explorer is a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that generates 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. It's not bad, but it's not even close to what Jeep offers.
  • The 2018 Ford Explorer has 7.8 inches of ground clearance-more than the 2018 Honda Pilot, but still not as much as the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
  • The most fuel-efficient configuration of the 2018 Ford Explorer gets an EPA-estimated 19/27/22 city/highway/combined mpg. The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee lets you spend more time on the road, and less time at the pump.
  • The 2018 Ford Explorer is only available in five trim levels.
  • Satellite radio costs extra on the 2018 Ford Explorer.
