You can buy a Jeep Grand Cherokee almost any way you’d like, from a 2-wheel-drive soft-roader to a 707-horsepower track star. But with prices that range from close to $30,000 to over $100,000, which version of the Grand Cherokee provides the best value?

Jeep has built a reputation for off-road-capable vehicles, and the 2019 Grand Cherokee is no exception. While trims like the SRT and Trackhawk are decidedly focused on on-road performance, other trims, from the base Laredo to the off-road specialist Trailhawk are designed to deliver the goods on and off the tarmac. Most Grand Cherokees employ a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 295 horsepower, although a V8 is optional (and another pair of V8s come exclusively in the high-performance variants).

Despite its impressive exterior styling, the Grand Cherokee is a little light on cargo space, with 36.3 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 68.3 cubes with that seat folded. It’s well-shaped but less than what you’ll find in other 2-row SUVs.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto joins a feast of other capabilities on the optional upgraded Uconnect infotainment system. The voice-recognition system works well and you’ll be able to pair your iPhone via Bluetooth with little difficulty.

Unfortunately, the Grand Cherokee is hardly a fuel-efficient vehicle, with an EPA rating of 21 miles per gallon in combined driving for the most fuel-efficient engine (the V6). Nor is it particularly safe, when compared with other competitors. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave it a Marginal rating for small overlap frontal-impact protection for the driver, and an even worse Poor rating for small overlap frontal-impact protection for the front passenger.

      This is the second Review of that automobile I have watched this morning and neither of you mentioned the only other real issue with this car and that is the idiotic "Start/Stop" feature which is a royal pain in the ass. There is no way to turn that feature off permanently, so we are left with having to push that button within moments of starting your car every god damn time you start it. That feature was the stupidest idea they could have come up with as they fell prey to environmentalist BS. It is so annoying that the Jeep Grand Cherokee I just bought three months ago, I am seriously thinking of getting rid of it.

      I'll call bull shit on your reason not to buy the GC. I was rear ended at 60 mph by a 17 year old girl driving a Tahoe. My car was standing still, waiting to turn into my driveway. The accident totaled the car, but I only suffered bad bone bruises on my calves, and that's it. If I was in a smaller car, or another car, I think I would have suffered greater injuries. While I appreciate the Crash Tests, physics and my personal experience don't lie.

      Don't fall for the jeep scam...you're talking about a Chrysler/fiat vehicle with a "jeep" name. Chrysler is junk, fiat? More junk. You're paying for the jeep name. Even the grand Cherokee is outdated. Do your research people, I've owned two of them.

      I have mine for almost four years. Mine has run flawlessly. So far, no issues. And there is no glare in the driver’s eyes from any shiny surfaces in the cabin. That’s silly nonsense. I would buy it again without hesitation. But, true about the gas mileage. I get about 19 combined. But this is a really nice vehicle.

      What is interesting is I was worried about the safety rating and found out that they upgraded the 2019 model. On the IIHS site the 2019 Grand Cherokee has been rated a good rating in small offset on both driver and passenger sides. A pillar changes and door hinge changes apparently resolved the issue in past models. So just to be fair, while this was an issue in the past, it looks like 2019s have been updated.

      Terrible fuel economy, terrible safety ratings, and most of all... terrible relibaility! FCA should go bankrupt, but of course every one wants to buy the name since they'll be taking it offroad maybe once or twice a year 😂 suckers.

      I currently drive a 2015 GC. I consistently get 21.5 to 23 mpg in daily driving. Top mileage ever was 26.2 mpg all freeway from Green Bay to south of Milwaukee WI. I do wish I would have upgraded to a Limited however.

      Spot on review, crash tests are where this really shows how old this design is, another place is interior storage which is minuscule. Other than those two issues it's a very cool vehicle.

      I own a 2014 ecodiesel jeep. I disagree with almost every negative thing you said. My ecodiesel (tuned) gets 31mpg all the time going up and down Oregon's section of i5. It's supremely comfortable with the air suspension. I tow various trailers nearly every week ranging from 1500lbs to 6000lbs. I can tow up to 7200lbs and the Jeep feels like it's capable of my more no matter how much weight I put back there. Also, it's got 140,000mi and has received nothing but regular fluid changes.
      The only negative thing I'll say is the programming for the 8 speed trans is horrible. It lunges during stop and go traffic due to starting in first. Basically, the diesel has so much torque, it needs to start in second when not towing, otherwise the creeping in stop and go is just aweful. Also, from the factory, they have the 8 speed downshift to 7th when you go up a 0.2% incline (not really, but it feels like it) which is completely unnecessary. The engine tune from gde has the programming attempting to have the engine lug using the power of the diesel, and it does help. I'm planning on getting their trans tune soon because after the ecodiesel emissions tune, FCA had all but ruined my drivability (trans shifting) and mpg. With that said, this is still my favorite, most capable towing and off roading, most comfortable utility vehicle I've ever owned. I've owned 2 durangos, one cherokee, one subaru wagon, another grand cherokee, and ultimately my 2014 ecodiesel.

      Don't let this guy fool you with his boring review. This is a fantastic vehicle.
