What is the Grand Cherokee?
The 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a midsize SUV with two rows of seats. Jeep gave the Grand Cherokee a much-needed redesign for the 2022 model year, with styling influenced by its bigger Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer siblings. The interior was also redesigned and includes Jeep's latest Uconnect 5 infotainment system, with an optional digital gauge cluster. Given the Grand Cherokee so recently had a major redesign, we don't expect any significant changes for the 2024 model year. That said, there is potential for the brand to fully electrify this model at some point in the not-so-distant future.
The V6 and V8 engines are holdovers from the previous model, but there's also an available plug-in hybrid version called the 4xe that joined the lineup for the 2022 model year. On a full charge, the 4xe can drive roughly 20-25 miles on all-electric power before the gasoline four-cylinder engine switches on. As another bonus, the 4xe generates a maximum of 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, which is more than the Grand Cherokee's already potent 357-hp V8.
The Grand Cherokee competes with the Honda Passport, which we praise for its athletic qualities. It also delivers a comfortable ride, generous passenger and cargo space, and an impressive list of standard features. It also competes with the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, a boxy yet stylish-looking utility vehicle that is popular with SUV buyers.
