With just the right blend of power, performance, and style, the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a joy to own in Chicago and Skokie. See Park Ridge and Forest Park both on pavement and off, with this capable off-roading vehicle.
Whether buying or leasing, the Jeep Grand Cherokee can make for a great choice. In this review, we’re taking a closer look at engine performance, interior amenities, and safety features.
Grand Cherokee Performance
The base trim of this Jeep midsize SUV features a 3.6-liter V6 engine, linked to a smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission. It’s capable of producing up to 295 horsepower, making it a great choice for those traveling both city streets and the highway. Save fuel with the Engine Stop/Start Technology. The engine will turn off when at a full stop, like at a light or otherwise idling. Press down on the accelerator and the Grand Cherokee engine will seamlessly restart.
There are many other engines to choose from, including a turbodiesel V6, and the supercharged 6.2-liter V8. The latter produces 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque, the kind of performance you’d expect from a sports car. With four different 4×4 systems, including the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System, the Grand Cherokee is ready for just about any road condition. And, with up to 7,200 pounds of towing capacity, you can bring a little fun along for the ride.

Inside the Cabin
The Grand Cherokee is designed with the driver in mind. Within an arm’s reach is standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ support, which can effectively integrate smartphone capabilities through the Uconnect® interface. Make a phone call, read text messages, or play your favorite songs with ease. With the voice command functionality, answer the phone, ask for directions, or play a certain song from your library.
You’ll always be comfortable inside the Grand Cherokee, thanks to the available heated and ventilated front seats. Regardless of what the temperature is outside the cabin, you’ll be satisfied inside. And, with the standard 60/40 split-folding rear seat, be prepared for whatever your busy life brings.
The Car That Looks Out for You
With over 70 standard and available safety and security features, you’ll feel confident behind the wheel. The roadways can be somewhat unpredictable, so be ready with the standard safety systems like Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross-Path Detection. These systems use radar-based sensors to pick up on vehicles in hard-to-detect spots.
Available Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking lets you know if a frontal collision is possible. If you don’t respond in time, the brakes will be automatically engaged. The standard backup camera is a convenient feature to have, too, and provides a wide-angle view of what’s happening behind the vehicle.
