Update: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit EcoDiesel 4×4

At first blush, the 2014 Grand Cherokee isn’t a tremendous departure from the model that debuted for 2012. Subtle styling tweaks are apparent, but it’s what’s in the cabin and under the hood that are cause for excitement.

Update: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

If you were turned off by the old Grand Cherokee SRT8, the addition of a modern transmission, paddle shifters you’ll actually want to use, and a host of infotainment upgrades are enough to give it a second look.

Jeep Previews 2014 Cherokee With Radical Design

The twin grilles, with the traditional seven-slat up top and the gaping maw along the bottom is just odd. It looks like a meth-addled piranha. One of the more interesting styling cues we see is the way the top half of the upper grille curves along with the hood, giving the Cherokee a sleeker, more aerodynamic look than previous Jeeps. That part we like.

Quick Drive: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

Even with the SRT8 in its tamest setting, there’s no denying that this 6.4-liter V-8 is a real charmer. In low-rpm, light-throttle situations, it’s quiet while still feeling willing and able to get to speed quickly. Giving it more boot results in effortless acceleration and a deep, meaningful exhaust note that is as American as apple pie. Despite its raciness, though, the throttle response is very manageable around town. It doesn’t feel overly sharp in Auto, and were it not for the sporty, flat-bottomed steering wheel and heavily bolstered seats, we may have mistaken our SRT for a more mundane Grand Cherokee.

First Look: 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

Called the Trailhawk, it debuted as a concept at the Moab Easter jeep Safari last spring. We’re happy to announce this isn’t just some badge-and-sticker job. Its eighteen-inch wheels are wrapped in Kevlar-reinforced Goodyear tires, for extra durability. It’s built to last as well, with a solid-steel rock guard protecting the underbody (on top of the Grand Cherokee’s standard protections). Power comes from either Chrysler’s award-winning Pentastar V-6 or the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8.

Driven: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Summit 4X4 V-8

On one hand the Grand Cherokee offers plenty of utility to back up its SUV credentials. It is a deceptively big vehicle (larger than it looks in photographs) that provides generous space for five full-size adults, plus a capacious cargo area. Some manufacturers would probably try to make an SUV this size into a somewhat compressed-feeling 7-seater, but Jeep has taken the wiser path of sticking with five seats, while giving each passenger (and said passenger’s luggage and gear) a just-right amount of room. This would be a fine vehicle for longer road trips—especially for those who like to take occasional off-road excursions along the way.

First Look: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

The new Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 we’ve been patiently waiting for has arrived in New York. The 2012 model, which will go on sale the third quarter of this year, promises to be the fastest Jeep yet.

Driven: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee

If there is one vehicle that is key to Chrysler’s survival, there is a good chance that it is the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Grand Cherokee has always been a popular choice, especially in the Snow Belt, due to its off-road ability, large but easy-to-handle size, and general coolness. For 2011, the resilient GC gets some new sheet metal, and importantly, an all-new 3.6-liter V-6 motor. Jeep offered us a week behind the wheel, and during that time, we pushed it to the max both on- and off-road.

First Look: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Gains Style, Off-Road Capability

Sometimes, a slight refresh can be a big step forward for an automaker. Take this new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, for example. Parent company Chrysler really needs to prove that it can make attractive, fuel-friendly, good-quality vehicles, otherwise the automaker will indeed have a tough time staying afloat over the next year. And from the looks of the new Grand, we don’t think it’s going to disappoint.
