The Grand Cherokee Continues to be the “Most-Awarded SUV Ever”
Jeep often refers to the Grand Cherokee as the “Most-Awarded SUV Ever” and the brand isn’t joking. Almost as if it can’t be beat, the Grand Cherokee just earned a third consecutive win at the 2019 AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards. As a repeat winner, the Grand Cherokee has been a popular model at the awards for the past decade, with nine awards to show for it.
“FCA has done an outstanding job understanding and delivering vehicles and features that delight consumers. They’ve done this in the face of strong competition and a challenging retail environment,” said George Peterson, president of AutoPacific.
AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards rely on actual opinions of real owners. They take into account more than 50,000 owners of 2019 model-year cars, SUVs and full-size trucks. Owners are then asked to share their opinion of about 32 different attributes of their rides. While weighing in on topics such as the design of their vehicle, the quality of the interior, the cabin comfort level, and even how well the vehicles performed, owners eventually crown their winners.
The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers buyers a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The SUV’s power figures clock in at 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Those who demand more power from their SUVs can opt for the Grand Cherokee SRT with its 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine, whopping 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque — perfect for dominating on the pavement and on the trail. There’s also a top-tier Trackhawk trim that’s powered by a 6.2-liter Supercharged V8 with 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque, catered to the daredevils who need both power and a roomy cabin.
Advanced driver assist technologies such as Blind-Spot Monitoring, ParkSense Rear Park-Assist with Stop, and Rear Cross-Path Detection come standard on any well-equipped Jeep Grand Cherokee. Owners can also enjoy Google Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capabilities on the latest user-friendly Uconnect infotainment system. Also included are Bluetooth voice command, a 7-inch touchscreen display, but buyers can opt for the 8.4-inch upgrade, complete with Navigation, USB ports, and a 115-volt outlet.
On the outside, the Grand Cherokee screams dominance, but on the inside, the supple cabin makes it all about the owner and their comfort. The first-class interior is a seamless fusion of advanced tech paired with handcrafted finishes that are as luxurious as they are comfortable. The seats on the inside are impeccably tailored with fine-quality materials, ranging from cloth to Nappa leather upholstery. Seating design options vary depending on the trim, with bucket chairs and 60/40 folding benches. As for the cabin accents, buyers can enjoy available exotic open-pore wood trim or anodized metal accents, both materials adding a premium touch, along with accented precision controls and door materials.
