The fourth-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee retains its classic Jeep styling and combined it with a modern, sleek body style. The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee retains its off-road capabilities, and balances its ruggedness while meeting the needs of families. As a result, the vehicle is built to provide a smooth ride, and its large size and weight give drivers a substantial feel when it comes to handling.
The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee can be set up as a family-friendly vehicle or a fairly serious off-road vehicle depending on the feature package. The dichotomy is normal for its class; trim levels make the decision-making process easier than expected. Standard on the base model is anti-lock brakes, power windows, locks and mirrors and a great sound system. One trim level up on the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited is dual-zone climate control and exterior work. The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is loaded with performance-oriented features and a powerful engine. Bluetooth connectivity, a navigation system and satellite radio are all options to include.
The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee proves that unless you plan on routinely off-roading, modern crossover vehicles are an excellent choice for ferrying families.
The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee base model carries a 3.7L V6 engine and a five-speed automatic transmission. A 5.7L V8 engine can also be swapped in under the hood. On higher trim levels, like the Grand Cherokee SRT8, the 6.1L V8 engine packs and impressive punch. Though all 2016 Grand Cherokees excel at off-road ability, the SRT8's powerful engine ensures that it can handle it the best. Rear-wheel drive comes standard on most models, encouraging fuel efficiency to balance out its rugged power. All-wheel drive models are also available.
The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee continues to build upon what Jeep lovers enjoy about the brand. Due to the a more modern and sleek style on a veteran brand, its build has aged relatively well, though the exterior styling now comes off as a bit traditional. The 2016 Grand Cherokee's interior is spacious due to its large size, though it lacks some of the headroom as its size may imply. Still, the interior is still comfortable and features leather trims and real wood accents.
