The Grand Cherokee, a mainstay of Jeep's lineup since 1993, is a large SUV with seating up to 5. It has technology that is now expected: Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it can easily handle mud, snow, and sand. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. The Jeep Grand Cherokee has some real zest, surpassing typical horsepower for its class. Jeep offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.
