In Charge of the Crossovers – The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a Boss
With a choice of four trim levels, the Sport, Latitude, Trailhawk, and Limited, the five-passenger Jeep Grand Cherokee satisfies an extensive range of driving needs and desires. Each trim level boasts a vast assortment of standard performance, safety, and convenience features, and can be further boosted by a variety of available packages and stand-alone options.
But choice isn’t just limited to trim level and packages. The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee features two engine possibilities. Standard fare comes from the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, able to generate 184 horsepower and 171 lb.-ft. of torque.
Or you can opt for the 3.2-liter V6 engine, rated at 271 horsepower and 239 lb.-ft. of torque. Whichever engine you choose comes paired with a standard nine-speed automatic transmission.
Also, you’ll have a choice of front or four-wheel drive, with the exception of the Trailhawk trim, which is only available in four-wheel drive. Here too, you have a choice between two four-wheel drive set ups.
If you lease a Grand Cherokee Sport, Latitude or Limited, expect four-wheel drive from the light-duty Active Drive I 4WD, ideal for winter weather.
If you choose to lease a Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, the 4WD system upgrades to the Active Drive II, complete with low-range gearing for enhanced off-road capability and further supported by a locking rear differential for tricky terrain.
No matter which four-wheel drive system you choose, the Selec-Terrain control allows you to choose different driving modes for enhanced traction, including Auto, Snow, Sport, and Sand/Mud. This means if the terrain suddenly shifts beneath you, the Selec-Terrain has got you covered and will adjust automatically accordingly.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk also comes with an additional Rock mode for off-roading adventures.
Fuel economy is dependent on the drivetrains, and so there are several EPA estimates to consider. For example, the front-wheel drive Cherokee with the base engine, which returns 25 mpg combined, or the front-wheel drive V6, dropping to an estimated 24 mpg combined.
Performance numbers are strong for the segment, with an Active Drive I 4WD Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited able to make the zero to sixty mph dash in 7.4 seconds.
An abundance of active and passive safety features outfit this SUV line, with the 2015 model year introducing a new front-crash mitigation system as an option.
