2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Performance Capability
The 2018 Grand Cherokee is certainly a top contender when it comes to power in the midsize SUV class. It comes standard with a 3.6L V6 engine, but offers three V8 engines: a 5.7L HEMI®, a 6.4L SRT® HEMI®, and a supercharged 6.2L V8 with an outstanding 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque rating in the Trackhawk trim. Each engine option will work to keep the vehicle in control when paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Have fun putting that power to use, without thinking about fuel economy. With an EPA-estimated 19 city/26 highway MPG, you’ll spend more time on (or off) the city streets, and less time at the pump.
Safety & Security in the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
With its best-in-class off-road capability, the Grand Cherokee will keep you safe, no matter what type of road you’re traveling on.
The available Trail Rated Quadra-Drive® II 4-wheel drive system uses the rear electronic limited-slip differential to detect wheel slip as soon as it occurs. Full power is rushed to the wheels with the most traction, continuously keeping you on track.
Another impressive safety feature is the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System. Pull out of your garage and onto wet or icy roads with ease by using this system. It effortlessly adjusts to specific driving modes for any type of road condition: Auto, Snow, Sand, Mud, or Rock.
2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk
The Jeep Grand Cherokee has always been a dynamic SUV, but this year, it decided to kick it up a notch. Introducing the all-new 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, a formidable powerhouse that’ll make your heart race with its unflinching power.
We already mentioned its engine with the exceptional horsepower and torque ratings. However, what about speed? Can a midsize SUV go as fast as a luxury sports car? Jeep gladly took that challenge and succeeded, building the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk to go from 0-60 MPH in an astonishing 3.5 seconds and braking from 60-0 MPH in just 114 feet.
Power on the outside melds with luxury style on the inside. Race-inspired seat bolsters keep you glued to your seat as you quickly maneuver every curve in the road. Carbon fiber accents and an available Laguna leather-wrapped interior leave you feeling comfortable and sophisticated. With 20-inch titanium wheels and a striking front end, you’re sure to turn heads everywhere you go.
