2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Performance Specs

Drivers of the Jeep Grand Cherokee have the choice of four different engines. The standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6 generates 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, which is plenty impressive on its own, but the Grand Cherokee isn’t stopping there.

The 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine generates 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque, and is optimized for towing. In fact, when equipped with this engine, this SUV can reach its maximum towing capacity of 7,400 pounds.

The 6.2L Supercharged V8 is the most powerful engine, generating 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque, while the 6.4L V8 engine with fuel saver tech optimizes fuel efficiency when V8 power isn’t needed. This engine generates 470 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque.

Every engine is outfitted with an 8-speed automatic transmission for a clean and smooth acceleration.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Handling Capabilities

The Grand Cherokee is Trail Rated®, meaning it’s maximized for off-road performance, with exceptional 4-wheel drive (4WD) capability. In fact, drivers can choose between three different available 4WD systems: Quadra-Drive® II, Quadra-Trac II®, and Quadra-Trac I®.

Each system provides its own unique combination of speed and traction control for truly go-anywhere handling.

Capabilities are further improved with the available Selec-Terrain® traction management system. Drivers can maximize their handling for specific conditions, including:

  • Snow
  • Sand
  • Auto
  • Mud
  • Rock

The available Quadra-Lift® Air Suspension also improves ground clearance, by adjusting its height to optimize off-roading, aerodynamics, and easy exit and entry when parking. This suspension even allows for 20 inches of water fording by allowing drivers to raise the SUV up to 10.8 inches.


The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee comes standard with the Uconnect® infotainment system with a 7-inch display, which utilizes voice commands for hands-free access to music streaming, calling, and texting.

The available Uconnect® 4C NAV helps you go anywhere, with the addition of hands-free navigation, plus full smartphone integration with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™. It also includes 4G Wi-Fi®, Siri® Eyes Free, and off-road pages displayed on a pinch-to-zoom 8.4-inch screen.

And, when you hit the trail, every road trip becomes a party with the available Harman Kardon® system. This surround-sound auto system blasts 825 watts of pure sound through 19 GreenEdge™ speakers placed strategically throughout the cabin.
