2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

(0 Stars)  A true flagship.

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

New For 2013
Overland Summit models now include front park assist, power-folding mirrors, and headlight washers as standard equipment. Shoppers looking to maximize off-road capability will be interested in the limited-edition Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, which includes rock rails, skid plates, and other off-road-specific equipment, as well as minor visual distinctions from the rest of the range.
Overview
The flagship Jeep retains uncompromising off-road capability, thanks largely to a trio of available four-wheel-drive systems and an optional air suspension that offers five height settings. Selec-Terrain electronically calibrates the vehicle to handle different conditions via a five-position dial. The Grand Cherokee will spend most of its time on dry, paved roads, though, where it behaves like a typical luxury SUV. The base engine is Chrysler’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6, which offers a respectable 290 hp. The optional 5.7-liter V-8 makes 360 hp and is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Horsepower fans will likely opt for the SRT8 model and its 470-hp, 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 engine. Surprisingly—at least to those familiar with past Grand Cherokees—interior quality and execution are the biggest strengths of the new version, with standard features such as keyless ignition and satellite radio and optional features that include a heated steering wheel, a panoramic sunroof, and a navigation system. Jeep has covered all the mid-size-SUV bases with the efficient V-6; the optional 5.7-liter V-8 that can tow up to 7400 pounds; and the track-tuned SRT8 model that can blast from 0 to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds, run a thirteen-second quarter mile, and reach 160 mph.
