Everything to Know When Shopping For A 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee


So, you're in the market for a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Here are some important things to know as you choose the best model for your driving needs.

Available Trim Options

Choosing among the available 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee trim options can be overwhelming as there are 11 of them available. These include the Summit, High Altitude, Overland, Trailhawk, Sterling Edition, Limited, Altitude, Laredo, Laredo E, SRT, and Trackhawk. Additionally, there are eight different colour trims for you to choose from. 

Performance Options

Choosing based on trim level is not as important as choosing a Grand Cherokee that meets your performance needs. The standard engine across all models is a 6.4-liter Hemi SRT V-8 engine that produces 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. This includes an eight-speed transmission with seven different drive modes. This base level performance is sufficient for most driving needs, but if you should need something more, you can upgrade to the more powerful engine.

The second option includes a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 engine with 707 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque. This powerful engine is so impressive that it results in the fastest acceleration and quarter-milespeed of any SUV. Greater performance power means a greater need for efficient braking. The Grand Cherokee is equipped with advanced high-performance 15-inch front rotors for better stopping ability.

Interior Design

You will find the interior to be similar in each 2018 Grand Cherokee trim option. The interior is designed for optimal driver comfort with premium soft-touch leather seating, a uniquely personalized instrument cluster, and added storage ability. The seats easily fold down to increase cargo space for a maximum of 68.3 cubic feet.  Maintain a consistent cabin temperature with the heated steering wheel, ventilated seats, and heated front and back seats.

Optional Packages

When choosing your Grand Cherokee trim, you will also want to evaluate your need for any additional packages. The Special Tow package pairs well with the Trackhawk and improves towing efficiency, offering a smoother drive with the ability to tow up to 7,200 pounds. This package is ideal for Jeep owners who have RVs, boats, or other recreational toys.

Just a few of the available features include blind spot monitoring, parking assistance with automated parking ability, backup camera and trailer views, and the electronic roll mitigation feature.
