What engines are there to choose from?
The engine is really where the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee really makes its mark. The Trackhawk is the powerhouse 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that comes directly from the Charger and Challenger Hellcat. This engine comes complete with the unprecedented 707 horsepower meaning it can go from 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds or less. The Trackhawk isn’t the only impressive engine on the block though, as the 2019 Grand Cherokee offers five different engine options. Though most will go with the 3.6-liter V6 or 5.7-liter Hemi V8, other options include 3.0-liter diesel V6 that offers more torque than the Hemi V8, though if you are towing a large amount the V8 is recommended. The Grand Cherokee SRT offers a powerful 6.4-liter V-8 with Fuel Saver Technology that delivers 475 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque and can do 0 to 60 in 4.8 seconds. All Grand Cherokees come with an 8-speed automatic transmission and the ability to tow up to 7,400 pounds.
What are some notable features on the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee?
All models of the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee come complete with the classic 2-row/5-passenger configurations. This layout means that passengers get more than enough room and a robust 36.3 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats. Folded, that space expands to 68.3 cubic feet. The base Laredo models get even better with a cloth and manually adjusted front seats, but stepping up just one trim puts the power operation back in the hands of the driver. New for 2019 is the Uconnect’s 8.4-inch touchscreen radio and navigation system with bonded glass, which features higher resolution and pinch-and-zoom capability complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto which comes standard in all models. Higher level models also include leather, heated front seats. As for the outside, the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee stays true to its roots with 8.6 inches of ground clearance. The Trackhawk trim is a powerhouse with quad tailpipes and “supercharged” emblazoned on the lower front doors, while the Overland gets a new 20-inch Heritage wheel and Summit models get a unique optional 20-inch wheel.
What are some of the safety features?
The Jeep Grand Cherokee includes more than 70 safety and security features, including some new ones like the Blind-spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path that come standard in all models. Other safety features include dual-zone climate control, parking sensors and a rearview camera. By far the most impressive safety feature is the automatic emergency braking. If a collision appears imminent and the driver doesn’t brake in time, the Grand Cherokee will apply the brakes automatically. Adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping assist round out this impressive lineup of safety features.
Final Thoughts on the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee

All of this is wrapped up in an all to affordable package, making Jeep a force to be reckoned with on an open market.
