2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Jeep, the SUV maestro, is renowned for its off-road legends like the Wrangler, but vehicles like the Grand Cherokee amplify its appeal to a broader audience. The 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a two-row mid-size SUV (distinct from the three-row Grand Cherokee L) crafted to feel right at home on paved highways. However, Jeep has infused it with enough off-road prowess to stay true to its adventurous spirit. For most Grand Cherokee trims, the SUVs come to life through a V6 engine, while an available plug-in-hybrid system named 4xe adds an eco-friendly touch exclusively to the Trailhawk trim. Elevating the Jeep Grand Cherokee’s allure, the American automaker offers a diverse array of trims, starting from the basic Laredo and ascending to the opulent Summit Reserve.

Powering the hybrid’s motor is a 14.0-kWh battery pack. The base V6 engine comes with standard rear-wheel drive, while Grand Cherokee’s plug-in-hybrid powertrain boasts standard all-wheel drive.

An updated cabin brings a contemporary touch to replace the older interior of the outgoing Grand Cherokee. The essential features are present in base Laredo models.
