Generational Overview

The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee debuted as part of this midsize SUV's fourth generation of production (2011-2020). Compared to the previous generation, the fourth generation model saw upgrades like a new 3.6L V6 engine, an independent rear suspension for a smoother ride, and an available air suspension. 

For the 2016 model specifically, the Grand Cherokee received additional upgrades like automatic engine start/stop technology and electric-assist power steering across most trims. 

Grand Cherokee Engine Options

Under the hood, a 3.6L V6 engine at 290-295 hp (varies by model year) is standard on the fourth-generation Grand Cherokee, as is a five-speed automatic transmission. From 2011-2014, a 5.7L V8 at 390 hp was available as an upgrade across most trims—but the optional engine changed to a turbocharged 3.0L diesel V6 beginning with the 2015 model year. 

The SRT trim, which was added to the lineup in 2014, is outfitted exclusively with a 6.4L V8 at 470 hp and standard four-wheel drive. And from 2018 onward, the performance-oriented Trackhawk trim receives a supercharged version of that V8 engine that's good for 707 hp. 

Rear-wheel drive is standard on most fourth-generation Grand Cherokee models, save for the SRT and Trackhawk (which both have all-wheel drive systems). Meanwhile, the Trailhawk is the only trim that comes standard with four-wheel drive. 

Grand Cherokee Storage Space

The fourth-generation Grand Cherokee offered a full-size spare as standard equipment. This spare does take up some cargo space compared to other SUVs in its class—but even so, the Grand Cherokee is able to offer a respectable 36.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind its rear seats. When these seats are folded, storage space is maxed out at 68.3 cubic feet on the 2016 model.

I got a LOT for a little

Great car, love the Summit trim level with bells and whistles! Dashboard started to bubble which I don’t like but I’ve been told it’s covered by warranty. Great looking car and fun to drive.

- CARMEN WALLACE, 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee

We live this car!

The ride is great! It has selectable 4wd modes and a performance button that all work great! We bought the75th anniversary edition with just about all the options. Both front power seats with memory save buttons for 2 drivers , leather heated seats front and back, navigation , sunroof! The only thing I am not super fond of is how the engine shuts off when you come to a complete stop. I can turn it off, but I have to do it every time I drive it. Other than that Love this Jeep!


  • Ride and Handling: It has soft but firm ride
  • Power: The performance button makes a huge difference in how it performs when you wanna get moving!
  • Weather Versatility: Selectable 4wd Moses work great!
