There are a select few vehicles here at Landmark Dodge of Morrow that we always steer customers toward when it comes to delivering on rugged capability. The Jeep Grand Cherokee has long doubled down on accessible power, versatility, and amiable personality. Backpackers, kayakers, and many other explorers are consistently amazed at its solid performance when the terrain at hand is light-years away from civilization. At first glance, its bold lines and very muscular stance render it very confident, and the seven-slot grille rounds out a commanding presence.
You can confidently roll up on the canyon or creek bed with brand-new LED headlights and taillights, which offer improved visibility along with a sweet upper-end touch. The 2024 model offers greatly improved fuel efficiency, allowing drivers to enjoy longer journeys without the pressure of wondering when they can refuel. The reduced wind noise allows for a more peaceful driving experience and an excellent means of fully immersing yourself in your next wilderness adventure. The advanced four-wheel drive system provides the ability to conquer any type of terrain the Jeep line has become so notorious for gobbling up on an empty stomach.
Whether it’s snow, mud, or other varieties of very hard-to-navigate terrain that you have on your agenda, this excellent SUV delivers exceptional performance wherever it's dispatched. The segment-leading ground clearance and off-road suspension allow for expert-level crawling that only the Jeep brand has been able to proudly stand behind for years now. This Grand Cherokee’s powertrain menu starts with a heaping serving in the form of a 293-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine, or a plug-in hybrid 4xe powertrain.
The 4xe powertrain combines a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine and an electric motor, throwing its well-sourced hand on the table proudly with 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. The base V-6 model comes with rear-wheel drive as standard, with other features such as an electronically locking limited-slip differential. The outdoorsy folk that have decided to up their game a challenging notch will no doubt have their eyes on the Trailhawk model, with beefed-up equipment such as an adjustable air suspension and disconnecting anti-roll bar. These allow for the wheel to be ideally articulated, which aids in mastering obstacles that would render a “civilian grade” vehicle useless in seconds.
The fastest Grand Cherokee model is the 4xe, reaching the 60-mph mark in just 5.3 seconds, and completing the quarter mile run in 13.9 seconds at 100 mph. Once inside, there is a very refined and luxury-focused cabin that offers unparalleled comfort along with functionality ideal for daily drives. Real wood accents and leather upholstery do wonders to alleviate the “epidemic of plain” that plagues even off-road capable vehicles offered today. The Summit and Overland trims come with eye-catching extras such as quilted leather upholsters, open-pore wood trim, and very cool high-tech digital displays.
The Grand Cherokee also comes equipped with Lane-Keep Assist, which is one of the most useful safety features out there today. If you happen to be drowsy or otherwise distracted, this feature will prevent you from drifting dangerously out of your lane. By constantly monitoring your vehicle’s crucial position within designated lane markings, it offers gentle steering inputs to keep you safe and constantly centered. Adaptive cruise control is an excellent tool for taking compounding stress out of long drives and allows you to relax and enjoy the trip while keeping everyone on board safe.
