The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a something-for-everyone SUV with either two or three rows of seating and gas or hybrid engines. It was redesigned last year with modern styling that combines a healthy dose of ruggedness with an upscale look and feel. Higher trims are especially well equipped with comfortable seating, premium audio systems, and a wide range of standard and available safety features. No matter which you choose, off-road capability is outstanding, which is reassuring for family trips.
The Grand Cherokee’s top trims are priced above $60,000, so this Jeep competes with established luxury brands such as Land Rover and BMW. The rival Kia Telluride has lower pricing, a surprisingly attractive cabin, and room for eight people, but it doesn’t match the Jeep’s off-road capability. The Toyota Highlander also has room for eight, great reliability ratings, and a lower price, but once again can’t touch the Grand Cherokee’s off-road skills. The Land Rover Defender is on par with both luxury and capability, but it has a much higher price tag.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk package is now available exclusively with the 4xe plug-in hybrid engine. Infotainment improves with a 10.1-inch touchscreen now standard on the Limited and Overland trims. Audio also gets an upgrade with the stand-alone option of a nine-speaker Alpine system for the Limited or 19-speaker McIntosh system for the Overland and Summit.
