Under the Grand Cherokee's Hood
Three incredible engines are available with the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee, including diesel and V8 options. The standard engine is the impressive 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, which has been cited as one of the most economical yet powerful V6 engines on the market and produces 260 lb-ft of torque and 295 horsepower. This and the available engine options will all come linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Most trims will feature a standard rear-wheel drive system, but each model is offered with four-wheel drive. The new Trailhawk model will feature Quadra-Drive II as a standard drive system, and it utilizes low-range gearing to maximize the capability when going off-road.
Design of Jeep Grand Cherokee
Every Grand Cherokee can be personalized to specific needs and design tastes, and the wide range of standalone features make it possible for customers to equip the features they want even if they choose a lower-priced trim. There are five main trim levels available, and the base trim is called the Laredo. It is well-equipped in every category, but it stands out with convenience features like keyless entry/ignition, LED interior lighting, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a 5-inch Uconnect infotainment system. The standard six-speaker sound system comes with an auxiliary audio jack, an SD-card slot, and a USB port. Some of the available high-end features include a Harman Kardon premium sound system, heated and ventilated front seats, stunning leather upholstery, and a navigation system.

One of the many exciting aspects of the Grand Cherokee's 2017 model year, is that it has gained a wider range of optional driver assistance features to complement the standard and optional safety features offered by Jeep.
