2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee


If you are looking for a car which costs no more than $40,000 , then there are a lot of options on the market. However, if you narrow down the search to a full size SUV which offers great looks, good performance and a very comfortable interior which only uses quality materials then there aren’t really a lot of cars out there.

2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Price

Sure, there are cars which do just that, but these are usually more expensive than $40,000. Well, the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee isn’t. With a base price of just $35,000 dollars it isn’t just one of the most affordable SUVs out there, it is also one of the best, offering one of the most amazing designs in its class, great performance for the price and a best in class fuel economy thanks to its diesel engine.

Sure, the top of the range models are more expensive than that, going for up to $50,000 , but even at this price it is better than most cars out there. The 2015 model brings to the table an even better design, a new version which can easily compete with cars such as the X5M or the new Range Rover Sport and also a lot more quality materials inside the cabin.

Just like before, it is based on the same unibody platform which gives it good performance on-road, it allows it to have a good amount of space inside the cabin and also offers good resistance to rolling in the corners. The only drawback of the new Grand Cherokee is the fact that the off-road capabilities aren’t on par with the models of the past, being quite lacking to be honest.

Interior

Inside the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee though things are a lot better than they used to. The base model offers a 5 inch touch screen which controls some functions of the car. This can be further upgraded to an 8 inch unit which has app support, 3G connectivity as well as an included satellite navigation system. The top of the range model will come with tings such as a 19 speaker Harman Kardon audio system, a 12 channel amplifier and also three subwoofers, making from the Grand Cherokee one of the best sounding cars on the market today. It even has Blu-Ray support and also a WiFi system which shares its internet with different devices inside the car.

Exterior

On the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee exterior things are as good as they can be. The 2015 jeep Grand Cherokee looks gorgeous and with the help of the premium package which adds chrome inserts, LED tail lights and also Xenon headlights, the car looks great. The only drawback we can see here is the slightly short ground clearance which might mean that the Grand Cherokee might face some troubles on rough or unpaved roads.

Engine

Under the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee hood though things are a lot better than on the exterior. It is available with four different engines, three of which are using petrol as their fuel. The base is a 3.6 liter V6, followed by a slightly more powerful 5.7 liter V8 with the top of the range being a 6.4 liter engine. The latter has just been included in the range on the SRT model and it is good for up to 475 horsepower and more than 500 lb-ft of torque, offering super-car like acceleration. There are also rumors about it getting a smaller supercharged V8 for up to 700 horsepower. This would make it the fastest SUV on the market today without a doubt. Take into account though that Jeep hasn’t released anything official just yet.

The most fuel efficient of them all is the 3 liter diesel V6 which is good for 240 horsepower and more than 400 lb-ft of torque while offering up to 30 MPG on the highway, the best fuel consumption in its class.
