A blue collar Range Rover, with Jeep off-road ability, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited has made a name for itself as a comfortable SUV that gives you 80% of the comfort and tech of foreign trucks at a more affordable price. To test that theory, Matt and Zack went off-roading.

Engine: 295HP/265TQ V6
Transmission: 8-speed automatic
Weight: 4,500-5,400lbs.

      Definitely didn’t need a Jeep for their trail. A 2wd truck would have made it. I’m trying to understand why Jeep have the GC many off road 4x4 modes with street tires.

      I forgot about this vid, we just ordered a '19 Limited X 5.7 for my wife. Almost bought a black pearl '15 Summit until we saw the slate blue pearl, and that was it. New car based on color. Gorgeous color in person.

      Why get the V6 gas when you can go for the 5.7 Hemi V8 or the 3.0 V6 diesel made in Italy.

      i have the trailhawk and got the V6 on purpose. The V8 and diesel add significant weight for not much more power. V6 also has significantly more range than a Hemi. Diesel is simply not practical where i live. The V6 is well powered and can move the SUV well

      The Trailhawk is the offroader of the GC lineup.

      I went from a Grand Cherokee to a Toyota Highlander. That only lasted 5 months and I had to go back to the Grand Cherokee. I just picked it up on Saturday.

      At about 22:09, the guys made some comments about the Toyota 4Runner. I've really liked the 4Runner I owned... but the 2019 4Runner, aside from offering a locking rear differential as an upgrade, is at least 5 years behind the engineering technology of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Truth be told, the road/highway "body on frame" design of the 4Runner is harsh enough that I'm really thinking about a Trailhawk or Overland. For 2020, Toyota is offering really, really MINIMAL improvement to the point that the 4Runner 2020 updates just don't warrant buying that truck. My take.

      Hello gentlemen on here commenting; lady here. What do you guys recommend is a better option, between this Grand Cherokee Limited and the BMW X1/X3? (I don't really do off-roading)
