The Jeep® Grand Cherokee secures the Best Midsize Utility Vehicle title in the 2024 MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Awards, marking its second consecutive win. In its 43rd season, MotorWeek, the original automotive magazine series on TV and digital media, conducts the annual Drivers’ Choice competition to assess vehicles based on driving performance, technology, practicality, fuel efficiency, and value.


“The Jeep Grand Cherokee is our back-to-back winner as Best Midsize Utility of the year,” said John Davis, creator and host of MotorWeek. “We are convinced that the Grand Cherokee lineup can handle just about anything adventure-loving families can throw at it! After existing for decades as a rough-around-the-edges, take-it-or-leave-it SUV, the fifth-generation Grand Cherokee arrived with all kinds of surprises, including an extended L version with three rows of seating, and even an available 4xe plug-in powertrain. That PHEV Grand Cherokee is not only proving to be very popular, but it adds serious breath to Jeep’s already substantial environmental posture. For a brand that survived on tradition for many years, the Grand Cherokee makes a truly modern statement by all measures.”


The Jeep Grand Cherokee integrates 4xe plug-in hybrid electric vehicle technology, elevating the Jeep brand’s renowned fun, freedom, and adventure. This innovative technology offers unparalleled performance, fuel economy, and environmental friendliness:

  • Three selectable driving modes: Electric, Hybrid, and e-Save
  • 25 miles of all-electric range and 56 MPGe
  • 375 hp and 470 lb.-ft. of torque
  • Quadra-Trac II 4×4 system with two-speed transfer case and 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio
  • 47.4:1 crawl ratio
  • 6,000-lbs. max towing capability
  • Trail Rated Grand Cherokee 4xe provides up to 10.9 inches of ground clearance and 24 inches of water fording with water-sealed battery pack


Expanding the Grand Cherokee family into the sought-after three-row segment, the 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee L delivers exceptional performance, comfort, and functionality. It upholds the Jeep SUV’s legacy as the most awarded and celebrated SUV ever, boasting legendary 4×4 capability, on-road refinement, premium styling, and craftsmanship inside and out.


“To have MotorWeek recognize the Jeep Grand Cherokee as Best Midsize Utility for the second-straight year as part of its prestigious 2024 MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Awards is especially rewarding as it gives third-party validation that we’re delivering the best, most capable and most awarded SUV ever to our customers,” said William Peffer, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. 


Constructed on an advanced architecture, the three-row Grand Cherokee offers spacious seating for up to seven passengers, individual climate zones throughout the cabin, and advanced safety and next-gen technologies. These include night vision, a rear-seat monitoring camera, a power-folding third row, and a premium 19-speaker McIntosh audio system. With the available class-exclusive 5.7-liter V-8 powertrain, the Grand Cherokee L achieves a best-in-class max towing capacity of up to 7,200 pounds.

The 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee represents the most technologically advanced and 4×4-capable iteration yet. This fifth-generation model introduces purpose-built architecture, a plug-in hybrid powertrain, a three-row L model, an iconic design with world-class craftsmanship, and first-to-market technologies to the full-size SUV segment.
