Jeep Grand Cherokee Reviews Riverdale Utah 

An In-Depth Larry H. Miller Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Riverdale Look at the New Jeep Grand Cherokee

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is an SUV designed for what you and your travel companions are looking for, diversifying to align with a blend of different tastes for those seeking different things. Drivers that prefer value will tend to lean towards the Laredo trim level, while more features are expected in the Limited. If you're looking to advance one step further with high-end amenities, the Summit will hold plenty of appeal as well. Finally, we have the two vehicles that are destined to perform, with one thriving on a race track and another doing its best in off-roading settings. Both the SRT and the returning Trailhawk models are a lot of fun, and are reflective of how you can't go wrong with any of these new Jeep SUV options.

The Jeep Trailhawk Returns Just in Time as the SRT Continues to Shine on the Racetrack

The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk trim level returns triumphantly and slots back in above the Overland, Summit and SRT models. With the renowned Jeep 4x4 system, along with traction-improving systems such as Jeep Selec-Terrain and a Quadra-Lift air suspension that delivers 10.8 inches of ground clearance, you can expect to enjoy trips to muddy areas, fields and more treacherous terrain around Weber County more than ever before. Features such as tow hooks, all-terrain tires, skid plates, and a hood decal to prevent glare are there to make these experiences even more memorable, giving you the tools you need to succeed on outdoor adventures.

If your dreams led you out onto the racetrack, you'll likely find yourself in the highly-popular Grand Cherokee SRT. This performance-oriented model comes with a 6.4-liter V8 engine that contributes an explosive 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet on its way to 60 miles per hour in just 4.8 seconds. Top speed reaches 160 miles per hour as well, with features including an all-wheel drive system and Sport, Track, Auto settings.

More on Jeep Grand Cherokee Performance

The Jeep Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 engine is the base powertrain configuration that you can expect when purchasing a new Grand Cherokee model here in our Riverdale showroom. This engine maximizes 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet with the help of an eight-speed automatic transmission, yielding 6,200 pounds of maximum towing capacity. Those towing numbers improve to 7,000 pounds optional in 4x4 Limited, Overland and Summit models that carry a 5.7-liter V8 Hemi engine with 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet. The top option, a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 engine that you can choose for the Limited, Trailhawk, Overland and Summit, moves those gaudy torque numbers up to 420 pound-feet while matching the mid-engine option in towing capacity.

Quadra-Trac I comes as an alternative option for two-wheel drive Laredo shoppers, with the Quadra-Trac II four-wheel drive system a popular choice to explore on the Limited, Trailhawk, Overland and Summit. You can choose to include Quadra-Trac active on-demand all-wheel drive with the SRT additionally, while the Trailhawk is eligible for Quadra-Drive II if you prefer.

Features Fit Nicely into your Jeep Grand Cherokee Experience

For a detailed rundown on amenities, we begin with the standard features of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless ignition and entry and hill-start assist are very popular for obvious reasons, as a trip up to the Laredo adds even more convenience through memory seating and heated first and second row seating. Luxury features begin popping up the higher you go in trim level, with the Jeep Active Safety Group and driver-assist features such as blind-spot monitoring optional for Limited, Trailhawk and Overland vehicles.

Interior space is plentiful, with enough head and leg room in the driver's seat and front passenger seat to keep you satisfied. The Jeep Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen is one major attraction, as you'll be hard-pressed to find another more practical and applicable entertainment offering for the price that it comes with.
