5 reasons why you should consider the Jeep Grand Cherokee

February 5, 2024

1. American powerhouse

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is available in the Netherlands only with a powerful plug-in hybrid powertrain. Under the hood is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine paired with an electric motor. The powertrain delivers an impressive system output of 375 hp and 637 Nm of torque. More than enough to negotiate a steep incline, but also good for 0-100 times of just 6.3 seconds. So at the stoplight, you leave many a (fully electric) car behind you.

2. Nature-friendly offroading

With the big Jeep you can explore nature without guilt, what there is no roaring V8 under the hood waking Bambi. A 17.3 kWh battery provides an electric range of up to 51 km. More than enough for an afternoon of fun in the mud. Moreover, the readily available power of the electric motor can be precisely controlled. Pretty nice, when maneuvering on tight off-road trails. Even during daily commuting trips, the PHEV technology provides a lot of fun: those who bravely plug in hardly need to refuel. The electric motor can propel the big Jeep up to 130 mph all-electric, so you can also drive emission-free on the highway.

3. Five-star hotel on wheels: Summit Reserve  

In our country, the Jeep dealer will immediately present you with the top model: the Summit Reserve. This version comes with all the cool goodies Jeep has to offer, such as leather upholstery, walnut inlays, seat massage, head-up display, night vision, digital interior mirror, a popping McIntosh audio system, two rear TV screens, three front screens (including above the glove box!) and extensive infotainment options. The Summit Reserve package turns the Jeep Grand Cherokee into a driving five-star hotel on wheels.

4. A real Jeep

Not only is the Jeep Grand Cherokee a luxury SUV, it remains true to its off-road roots. The 4xe drive system including high and low gearing, combined with off-road driving modes and assistants, gives you the freedom to go wherever you want. Four-wheel drive means you’ll always have grip, and a switch on the dashboard lets you increase ground clearance considerably. Useful when you encounter obstacles in the woods, but it also allows you to overcome high thresholds effortlessly. With a braked towing capacity of up to 2,215 kg, the Grand Cherokee also stands out as a powerful plug-in hybrid caravan tractor.

5. Driving experience: comfortable and powerful  

The Jeep Grand Cherokee’s handling makes a strong impression with its serene silence in electric mode. The combination of air suspension and a powerful dose of torque makes for an extremely soothing and comfortable driving experience. The interior exudes a robust atmosphere, with natural materials such as real wood, and there are spacious American seats and a plethora of physical buttons that you can operate effortlessly without taking your eyes off the road. Practical features, including a spacious second row of seats and a generous 533-liter luggage compartment, make the Grand Cherokee ideal for family outings and long trips.
