Jeep Grand Cherokee Engine Specs
The Grand Cherokee can be a track star or a rugged off-roader, depending on the engine you choose. The base is a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, which is a strong performer on road and off.
From there, you can choose a 5.7-liter V8 with 360 horsepower that can tow up to 7,200 pounds or a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V8 that produces 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque, to boost the towing capacity to 7,400 pounds.
Those looking for more track-like performance can find it with the 6.4-liter V8 that produces 475 horsepower and offers a 13-second quarter-mile runtime. The supercharged 6.2-liter V8 is the top of the lineup, boasting 707 horsepower, a 3.5-second zero to 60 speed and a quarter-mile of 11.6 seconds.
No matter which engine you choose, it mates to an eight-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters and a Quadra-Lift air suspension to raise the ride height. Four different four-wheel-drive systems are available, which range from all-weather capability to advanced all-terrain capability.

The Limited and Summit models share many of the same features and are designed for comfort and convenience on the road, while the trail-ready Trailhawk® and Overland models come with beefy tires, off-road specialized features, tow hooks, and an air suspension system.
The track versions are the SRT and Trackhawk, which include premium features like leather upholstery and a panoramic sunroof, with performance upgrades like active dampers and launch control.
Regardless of the model you choose, the Uconnect® infotainment system with smartphone compatibility provides you with endless entertainment options streamed from your phone onto an intuitive interface that’s remarkably easy to use.
The Grand Cherokee has a smartly designed, practical interior with a lot of space and luxury.

The cargo bay is spacious, with 36.3 cubic feet of space behind the second row, which expands to 63 cubic feet with the seats folded. A power tailgate is standard for several models, making cargo loading convenient and quick, and a padded cargo area is available for added protection.
