It is one of the best off-road SUVs of today which is fulfilling all the major demands for instance easy-to-use latest tech, outclass performance, best interior and comfort level.

It has an authoritative V6 engine, but the optional turbo-diesel V6 is perfect to churn out power with eight-speed automatic transmission which is desirable for swift, leveled shifts. While its EPA-estimated fuel economy is just so-so, i.e. 15/25 mpg city/highway in general but the diesel-powered trim level has a 22/30 mpg city/highway which is quite satisfactory. Reviewers are also happy with its maneuverability, it is thankful to its small-turning circle and “predictable handling”.

This jeep has a rocking interior full of high-quality items or features. Its front and rear seats are also broad and comfy with ample legroom. It is decked with latest infotainment system which has no match yet in the market. However, there is also a complaint about its cargo-room which is not so spacious than other SUVs of its like.

Standard Cherokee offers keyless entry plus push-button start, dual-zone self-regulating climate control and Jeep’s Uconnect infotainment system. It involves a USB port, six-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, 5-inch touch-screen and an SD-card slot.

It adds a new informative 7-inch display, a 8.4 inch touch-screen which is available in all Grand trims except for one. It has all the fun things that a driver could imagine like Smartphone app integration and Wi Fi hotspot etc.
Having cozy seats for four to five passengers and an ample (though not competent) luggage-area makes it an enjoyable ride.
In Edmunds words, it has one of “The Nicest Interior” in its class.
