2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of the few true utility vehicles

For 2015, Jeep added the Altitude model to the Grand Cherokee lineup. It bundles a few key options on top of the base Laredo trim, but equipment is substantial even on Jeep's base model. Dual-zone climate control, alloy wheels, cruise control, Bluetooth® connectivity, and a 5-inch touchscreen come standard. The Limited ups the equipment with some desirable convenience features, notably a rearview camera and parking sensors, as well as a power tailgate, heated seats, and a heated steering wheel. The Overland adds a towing package, navigation, and more luxury features, while the top-of-the-range Summit brings 20-inch polished alloy wheels, active noise-cancelling technology, and much more to its lengthy list of equipment. All the regular Grand Cherokee models can be had in either rear- or four-wheel drive, and Jeep offers a number of options and packages for buyers who need substantial off-road capability.

Topping the line, but with a more road-focused nature, is the SRT. Its 475-hp 6.4-liter V8—up 5 hp from 2014—gives it monstrous performance potential for a significantly lower price than similar-powered rivals. The rest of the range is powered by three engines: the base 290-hp 3.6-liter V6, a 360-hp 5.7-liter V8, and a 3.0-liter turbodiesel with 240 hp. Naturally, that diesel is the pick for the highest EPA-estimated fuel economy. It's powerful and capable, but it lacks smoothness at idle. One of only a handful of SUVs with real utility when the road ends, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is a very capable all-rounder, with plenty of passenger space for five. It's a smart family-size choice for those who want some adventure on the weekends.
