What You Will Like

The Jeep Grand Cherokee has proven itself the premiere luxury SUV for 20 years. The latest Grand Cherokee builds on that tradition by offering civilized highway driving as well as the equipment to make a credible show off-road. The base Laredo 4x2 starts at just under $30,000 and comes very well equipped. Meanwhile, the top-of-the-line SRT's all-wheel-drive on-road performance rivals that of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo, but for half the price.

What's New For 2016

For 2016, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has a revised, more conventional shifter though it remains in a fixed position no matter the gear. To improve fuel efficiency, the 3.6L V6 now has variable valve timing and lift, along with automatic stop-start. Output is also improved, now up to 295 horsepower. Weight is reduced thanks to the use of aluminum suspension components, and electrically assisted power steering debuts on all but SRT Jeeps. A 75th Anniversary Edition is available on Laredo and Limited models, while a High Altitude Limited Edition also debuts.


  • Basic Warranty: 3 Years / 36,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 5 Years / 60,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 5 Years / 100,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Loading Comparison...


The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a luxury vehicle in addition to being a solid highway cruiser and a capable off-road machine. The current-generation Grand Cherokee was introduced for the 2011 model year.

For 2016, Jeep Grand Cherokee is available in a new High Altitude edition based on the top Overland trim. Electric power steering is new for 2016, and the 2016 Grand Cherokee SRT gets a revised instrument cluster.

Seating five passengers in two rows, the Grand Cherokee features a richly furnished, luxury-level cabin with ample interior space. Superior capability is the rule. Not only does a Grand Cherokee ride comfortably, it handles and performs well. The powertrain lineup ranges from a fuel-efficient EcoDiesel V6 to gasoline V6 and V8 engines, topped by the outlandishly quick Grand Cherokee SRT.

Three engines are available for the Grand Cherokee, four if the SRT is counted. Base models use a 3.6-liter V6, which makes 295 horsepower and is fitted with fuel-saving engine stop-start technology. The 5.7-liter Hemi V8 generates 360 horsepower. The most fuel-efficient option is the EcoDiesel 3.0-liter V6, producing 420 pound-feet of torque. Estimated at 30 mpg on the highway, it stretches range per tankful to 730 miles.

Each engine mates with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Grand Cherokee promises best-in-class towing capacity, at up to 7,400 pounds.

Jeep also offers a fourth powertrain, in the performance-focused SRT, whose 6.4-liter Hemi V8 now whips up 475 horsepower. All that energy reaches all four wheels, whereas other Grand Cherokees can have either rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive.

An available air suspension can improve gas mileage further by lowering the vehicle at highway speed. The 8-speed transmission allows a lower crawl ratio, which matches the EcoDiesel especially well. Buyers choose from three four-wheel drive systems. Selec-Terrain automatically alters powertrain settings according to the surroundings.

Gasoline V6 versions include new engine stop-start technology. With rear-wheel drive, the V6 has been EPA-rated at 17/25 mpg City/Highway. EcoDiesel is EPA-rated at 22/30 mpg City/Highway. Rear-drive Hemi V8 models earn an unappealing 14/22 mpg. But it’s the SRT that guzzles, at 13/19 mpg.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has given the Grand Cherokee either four or five stars overall, with five stars for frontal and side-impact protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rated it Good in all but the tougher small-overlap test.


Five trim levels are available. Grand Cherokee Laredo ($29,995) includes air conditioning; cloth seats; power windows, locks, and mirrors; CD player; satellite radio; 17-inch wheels.

Grand Cherokee Limited ($37,365) gets leather seating; heated power front seats; power tailgate; remote start; rearview camera, 18-inch wheels. Adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors, and navigation are optional. The EcoDiesel V6 and Hemi V8 are available on Limited models and above.

Grand Cherokee Overland ($44,195) features 20-inch wheels; Nappa leather seating; ventilated front seats; a panoramic sunroof; leather-trimmed dashboard; navigation; and on 4WD models, an air suspension. The High Altitude Edition includes dark chrome exterior trim and a sports suspension. Grand Cherokee Summit ($49,595) comes fully loaded with every available feature, including steering-linked headlights and 19-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound audio with active noise-cancelling.

Grand Cherokee SRT ($64,895) has leather/suede seats, carbon-fiber interior trim, and metallic pedal pads, as well as Performance Pages that display data. An SRT Night Edition ($70,485) includes black 20-inch forged aluminum wheels and black Laguna leather.


With its rugged-looking, high-shouldered stance, Grand Cherokee neatly straddles the dividing line between traditional and contemporary. Not everyone applauds the current front-end styling with the small grille, but it all melds together in a coherent way. In a segment that leans toward expansive panels and substantial chrome, Grand Cherokee takes the understated route.

Even measured against luxury-brand competitors, the biggest Jeep is quite sophisticated. All versions have a spoiler, while LED taillights give the rear end a little more stature.


Grand Cherokee boasts one of the most comfortable, best-appointed cabins in its class. Even in base trim, the handsome cabin feels warm and inviting. Materials go upscale in upper trim levels, including real wood trim.

Seating is particularly well-designed, with adult-friendly legroom in front and back. Large doors open wide, easing entry/exit. The driver and front passenger get generously wide cushions with moderate bolstering. Laredo seats are somewhat flat, with short cushions. Even with a sunroof, six-footers can expect adequate headroom.

That extra width helps in back. Three adults will likely sit comfortably. Rear seatbacks recline and tilt, folding down using a single lever.

Quiet generally, the Grand Cherokee has big mirrors that generate wind noise on the highway. Forward visibility is top-notch.

Driving Impressions

Grand Cherokee is one of the best handling, best steering SUVs in its class. Road manners are smooth and crossover-like, without a bounding ride. Upper trim levels can get an optional Quadra-Lift air suspension, able to raise the Grand Cherokee from 6.4 inches to 11.3 inches off the ground. The air suspension can also lower the Jeep all the way for entry/exit.

The refined 3.6-liter V6 offers strong midrange response, plus sufficient low-rpm torque to handle demanding off-road tasks. With the 5.7-liter Hemi V8, Grand Cherokee feels almost like a muscular Dodge Charger sedan, including a great-sounding engine; but the performance improvement over a V6 doesn’t quite offset the gas-mileage penalty. The admirably responsive 8-speed ZF automatic includes paddle shifters.

The most costly choice is the 3.0-liter turbodiesel six-cylinder. Despite producing strong low- and mid-range torque, it doesn’t feel as potent as the V8. Engine clatter can be heard at idle and lower speeds.

Maximum towing is rated at 6,200 pounds with the V6, while the rear-drive diesel manages 7,400 pounds.

Three four-wheel-drive systems are available. Basic Quadra-Trac I has a locking differential with 50/50 power split, but no low range. Quadra-Trac II splits front/rear torque variably. Quadra-Drive II adds an electronic limited-slip differential. Selec-Terrain lets the driver choose among five traction-control modes: Auto, Sand, Mud, Snow, and Rock.

The SRT is in a performance class by itself, unbridled in ways you’d never expect from the Jeep brand. Not only does it promise 0-60 mph acceleration in about 4.8 seconds, SRT ranks among the top-handling SUVs we’ve driven.


Considering the Grand Cherokee’s lack of a luxury badge, it’s on the pricey side, especially in upper trim levels. Buyers seeking a versatile, comfortable family vehicle would likely be happy with a Laredo or Limited. Overland and Summit models bring a more distinct appearance, as well as features that echo luxury-brand SUVs.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
