Best SUV I've ever owned
GC, 12/10/2016
I have owned mostly smaller SUVs in the past including Honda CRV, 3 Subaru Outbacks and most recently Jeep Renegade. I finally made a leap to the mid SUV segment and got a 2017 Jeep GC Limited.. What a difference. For a bigger SUV, it drives smooth, very quiet and it is totally not a gas guzzler as I initially worried about. In fact for the power of the engine I was getting 24-25 during the summer time and about 21-22 in our winter so far. Interior is clean and upscale looking better than the Toyota Highlanders and Honda Pilot. I am very impressed with the Jeep Grand Cherokee. It's value at all levels.
My all black 2017 Altitude
Sarge, 8/24/2017
This is my third Grand Cherokee. And this by far is the best. I am in love with the updates and the comfort and obvious appearance of the Altitude. A few outward mods and I feel it represents me well driving down the street. Everything from turning radius to the feel of the wheel when driving, Stereo system, seat comfort, etc... Heads keep turning and the positive comments keep on coming in. I am a Mopar- Jeep guy at heart and am truly glad I leased another grand Cherokee. The comments about the engine turning off at stops is a bit ridiculous. All you have to do is PUSH a BUTTON to turn that feature off. C'mon. And this V6 is quick. Very quick with a "Sport" mode which I rarely use. How fast do you really want to go in an SUV ? But this one is quicker than my previous two. Plenty of power if you need to avoid someone or something, or pass another vehicle. I Just love this Jeep.
My first Chrysler product....and I love it!
Shawn M., 9/14/2017
I come from a Ford family. If you're not from Michigan you won't get it. Basically, my whole family works/worked for Ford. That means you buy a Ford. I've had a few, and they weren't bad, but I was always told to steer clear of Chrysler products because they were considered "bottom of the barrel". I took the plunge after 1.5 years of meticulous research (I do this for all of my auto purchases). I started to notice that many of my friends were buying Jeeps. I had no clue why, but I rode in a Limited and I was astonished! The fit, finish, and materials were really nice. It wasn't "bottom of the barrel" at all. So my search began. I used to drive a 2009 Acura TL SH-AWD and I liked it but it was time for a new car. After all of my research, I decided that I wanted either an SRT or Summit. In thinking about how long I wanted to keep the car, creature comforts, etc., I decided upon a 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit with the 5.7L V8 (Black on Black). This car is AMAZING! Full disclosure, I've only had it for about a month, but I've put about 2100 miles on it and bought it new. So far no major issues, but I can say that there are a couple minor things I don't like. First, the multi-Cylinder Displacement system is annoying. I bought a V8 for a reason, and yes it does help with gas but I want the ability to turn it off completely or on. It makes all kinds of random "juddering" noises and that's annoying. Secondly, I have the air suspension, which I highly recommend based upon your state's roads. Michigan's are horrible so the air suspension is helpful. My issue is that its sort to of noisy at times, I don't know if that's inside or outside, but it can be a bit noisy. Third and finally, the sunroof shade rattles a bit when I go over large bumps. It comes and goes but it can be annoying. Overall, if you've never experienced a Jeep Grand Cherokee, I HIGHLY recommend testing one out or renting one for the weekend. The trims levels are all different in many ways but also similar as well in others (i.e. the interior to some degree). Take one for a spin, you won't be disappointed! I love my Jeep!! UPDATE: 6 or so months later, I still love my Jeep! Its still-functioning optimally and I have no complaints. I made it through my first Michigan winter and it was glorious. Moving to the snow position makes travel in this type of weather a breeze! The V8 engine is a must if it's in your budget. Worth every penny!! I also had the opportunity to take the Jeep on a road trip and it was amazing! Adaptive Cruise Control makes driving a breeze on the expressway and in normal traffic. Overall I would still recommend this car to anyone. Worth the $$!

Jim, 3/18/2017
Just leased my 2017 Trailhawk but I'm in love. This is a very different vehicle for me. I had previously only driven BMW 3-Series (except for brief stint with Infiniti) but wanted to move into an SUV. Every time I open the door to my Jeep I'm greeted with a level of luxury that you would find on a premium make. I opted for a loaded model with the Luxury and Active Safety Group. Both upgrades I would fully recommend. The Panoramic roof really brightens up the all black interior, while the LED DRL add an aggressive look. The adaptive cruise system is excellent. It can control your speed all the way down to a standstill but will only hold the brakes for about 3 seconds. Where it exceeds other systems on the market is following distance, it doesn't leave a huge gap in vehicles (allowing other drivers to cut in) at the closet setting. Making it actually functional in city traffic. Other active safety features include self-parking which works great once it locks onto a spot, as well as the lane keeping system, which subtlely nudges you back into your lane if drifting. The V6 is plenty of power in this car, especially after the 2016 upgrades. I average about 18mpg driving around (60% city/40% highway). My only complaint so far is in regard to the SRT seats included on the Trailhawk model. While the bolsters on the back piece are great, the bottom portion are a little tight. An adjustable bolster system similar to my old 328i would help. My only long term concern is reliability, an attribute FCA isn't known for, hence why I leased. I'll report back after put some more miles on.

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee video

TRAVIS LANGNESS: I'm Travis Langness, Edmunds editor. And this is the Expert Rundown of the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The 2017 Grand Cherokee gets an off-road Trailhawk model. And the top of the line Summit model gets some new styling. And there are a few new features, like self-parking system and lane departure warning. In its class, it's definitely a standout. All the trim levels, other than top of the line Summit are Trail Rated. So pretty much each one of them can go pretty far off-road. The base trim level comes with a decent V6 gasoline engine, but it's not our favorite. If we're honest, we'd upgrade to the diesel or the available V8. Those are both great. And they improve tow ratings quite a bit. No matter what model you get for the Grand Cherokee, it's got a plush interior, lots of luxury and available tech, and comfortable seats, easy to use Uconnect interface. Those are two of the best parts of the interior. The ride quality is a bit disappointing, especially with the air suspension. We'd think it'd be a little bit better. But it's totally livable. The Grand Cherokee we recommend is the Trailhawk model. Even in the base levels, you get a lot of standard kit. But the Trailhawk model comes with the extra off-road equipment as well as all the swanky stuff, like ventilated seats and the 8.4-inch touchscreen. Bottom line, the Jeep Grand Cherokee may be getting on in age, but it's definitely still one of our favorite SUVs on the road.

More about the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee

With a unique blend of off-road chops, decent highway manners and around-town maneuverability, the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee is designed to meet the needs of a wide range of shoppers looking for an upscale midsize SUV. Even though controversial redesigns have softened some of the traditional Jeep styling cues, resulting in sleeker lines and a more aerodynamic look, the Grand Cherokee retains enough muscular Jeep DNA to preserve its appeal to purists. And the less trucklike appearance has allowed it to attract entirely new groups of buyers.

For 2017, Jeep has made a rearview camera and rear parking sensors standard equipment on all Grand Cherokee models. The line-topping Summit trim level gains updated styling and a more luxurious interior. Perhaps the most intriguing news for 2017 is the addition of the Trailhawk model with 18-inch off-road tires, air suspension with extra travel, skidplates and an electronic limited-slip differential.

Standard power for the Grand Cherokee comes from a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque and comes linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Other engine choices abound. There are V8s of 360 horsepower and 475 hp, as well as a 240-hp diesel V6. All models are available with four-wheel drive, except the off-road-oriented Trailhawk, on which it's standard.

Fuel economy for the base rear-wheel-drive Grand Cherokee with the V6 engine is EPA-rated at 21 mpg combined (19 city/26 highway). Choose the 6.4-liter Hemi V8 with four-wheel drive and the rating drops to 15 mpg combined (13 city/19 highway).

The experience of driving the Grand Cherokee can vary, depending on which trim level you choose and what you ask it to do. Equipped with four-wheel drive, all models except the posh Summit are capable off-roaders. True, most buyers won't ever wander off into the dirt, but those who do will find Jeep's flagship able to conquer the majority of the competition. On the open road, the Grand Cherokee is surprisingly smooth and comfortable, thanks to suspension that is tuned to split the difference between utility hauler and people carrier. But there's no way this SUV can be can considered a sportster. It's just not oriented toward corner-carving.

There's a good story inside the Grand Cherokee as well. The interior of even the base Laredo model is well designed and pleasant, with plenty of room for passengers and cargo. Standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, an infotainment center with Bluetooth connectivity and a 5-inch touchscreen. Moving up to the Limited and Overland trim levels adds a host of comfort and convenience features, and the top-of-the-line Summit piles on more of those, plus increasingly luxurious interior touches. Whatever your preference, let Edmunds help you find the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee that best meets your needs.
