KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Joe Tralongo, Contributing Editor - Updated Date: 9/1/2016


As the flagship model for the iconic Jeep brand, the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV carries a heavy responsibility. Thankfully, with models ranging from basic to brutal, this 5-passenger SUV has the goods to stay one step ahead of rivals like the Ford Edge and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. And, with the exception of Toyota’s 4Runner, few other SUVs in this class can go where the Grand Cherokee feels most at home. The Grand Cherokee also has a luxurious side that allows the Summit trim to challenge premium SUVs such as the BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE. With two powerful V8 engines and a diesel V6 option, Jeep’s Grand Cherokee for 2017 certainly feels like a premium brand, although its price tag may say otherwise.

You'll Like This Car If...

For the money, we think the 2017 Grand Cherokee SUV is Jeep’s best all-around vehicle. With models ranging from the most basic 2-wheel-drive (2WD) Laredo to the performance-oriented 475-horsepower SRT, and a tow rating up to 7,400 pounds, the Grand Cherokee offers something for everyone.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If off-road adventuring isn’t really your thing, you can find any number of front-wheel-drive, 5-passenger SUVs for less money than a loaded 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Need a third row? You’ll have to look to the Nissan Pathfinder, Honda Pilot or Ford Explorer.

What's New for 2017

Along with a new grille and the addition of a rearview camera and rear parking sensors, the Jeep’s Grand Cherokee for 2017 gains a new Trailhawk and revised Summit trim. The Trailhawk includes Quadra-Drive II, a unique air suspension, 18-inch off-road wheels and tires and an electronic limited-slip differential.

Driving It Driving Impressions

While Jeep loves to portray its 2017 Grand Cherokee SUV tackling all manner of off-road adventures, the truth is many will rarely see more than a few gravel-strewn or snow-covered roads. For this reason, Jeep wisely equips the Grand Cherokee with a civilized suspension that is remarkably comfortable both on and off-road. Regrettably, the Grand Cherokee’s rugged design can’t cheat the wind, and noise emanating from around the side mirrors and windows is evident, although we doubt many people who covet the big Jeep will care. The Grand Cherokee’s excellent ground clearance and choice of various 4-wheel-drive (4WD) systems give consumers plenty of off-road possibilities, as do the powerful standard V6 and optional V8 engines. The 3.0-liter EcoDiesel offers impressive torque and 30 mpg, but its nearly $5,000 premium and pricey urea refills (required every 10,000 miles) make it a hard choice to justify.

Favorite Features

UCONNECT ACCESS
Jeep’s Uconnect infotainment system is one of the best in the industry. An 8.4-inch touch panel displays large, easy-to-see graphics, and the system’s voice-recognition software allows for control of the navigation, audio, hands-free texting and mobile apps such as Pandora.

QUADRA-LIFT AIR SUSPENSION
Jeep’s new Grand Cherokee SUV offers an optional air suspension with five separate height settings. At its highest, the Grand Cherokee delivers 10.6 inches of ground clearance. At its lowest setting, entry and exit are made easier and aerodynamics is improved. Trailhawks get a modified version for improved wheel articulation.
