2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
The Grand Cherokee is one of Chrysler’s bread-and-butter offerings. It’s a five-seat midsize SUV. Trim levels include Laredo, Limited and high-performance SRT8 models. The Overland model is no longer available. The Grand Cherokee’s competition includes the likes of the Ford Explorer and Toyota 4Runner.

New for 2010
The Grand Cherokee is now available in Laredo, Limited and SRT8 trims only. The Overland trim has been discontinued.

Exterior
The Jeep Grand Cherokee features classic Jeep styling cues, with a seven-slot grille. The grille is body-colored, but an optional chrome grille is available. The standard outside mirrors are heated, and there is the option of auto-dimming, memory mirrors. The SRT8’s exterior features a different front with larger air dams and cooling ducts.

  • Standard body-colored door handles and grille
  • Standard 17-inch aluminum wheels
  • Optional 17-inch machined-face aluminum wheels
  • Optional 18-inch aluminum chrome-clad wheels
  • Optional 20-inch wheels
  • Optional sunroof

Interior
The interior features either a single- or two-tone cabin and a chrome-trimmed instrument cluster. The Grand Cherokee comes standard with cloth seats, but leather and perforated leather are also available. Optional equipment includes heated seats, adjustable pedals, remote start and an auxiliary power outlet.

  • Standard air conditioning, optional dual-zone automatic air conditioning
  • Standard power locks, mirrors and widows
  • Standard eight-way power driver’s seat, optional four-way power passenger seat
  • Standard steering-wheel-mounted audio controls
  • Faux aluminum, wood veneer and real wood trim available
  • Optional hands-free communication system and remote start
  • Optional navigation system
  • SRT8 models feature a distinct interior with accent stitching, carbon-weave aluminum inserts on the dash, and other features

Under the Hood
The Grand Cherokee Laredo and Limited models now have two available powertrains, and both engines pair with a five-speed automatic transmission. The Hemi V-8 applies variable-valve timing and cylinder deactivation for better fuel economy. SRT8 models come with a 420-horsepower, 6.1-liter Hemi V-8 engine that does not offer the cylinder deactivating feature.

Rear- and four-wheel-drive versions are offered in Laredo and Limited models, while the SRT8 is available only with four-wheel drive. Hill start assist is also offered and serves to keep the Grand Cherokee from rolling backward on inclines.

  • Standard 210-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 with 235 pounds-feet of torque
  • 357-hp, 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 with 389 pounds-feet of torque
  • 420-hp, 6.1-liter Hemi V-8 that makes 420 pounds-feet of torque
  • Standard five-speed automatic transmission
  • Rear- or four-wheel drive
  • SRT8 employs SRT-tuned suspension and a lowered ride height

Safety
Safety features include:

  • Standard multi-stage front airbags
  • Standard side curtain airbags for all rows
  • Standard antilock brakes
  • Standard electronic stability system and traction control
  • Standard Smart Key that immobilizes the engine in a theft attempt
  • Optional parking assist and rear backup camera
  • Optional rain-sensing wipers and automatic headlamps

Brand-loyal and this year (2010) was a GOOD one!

The Jeep GC Laredo 4x4 was the perfect commuting car for our family! I needed it to get me up and over two mountains on the way to work, and then back again, safely and securely each time. 70-miles each day, round-trip, plus vacations and this Jeep stood up to the task. I'd keep driving it if I could, going well beyond the quarter-of-one-million miles mark! Storage is just right for a family of 4, or ample space for you and a friend to go camping or cruising! For parents looking for a SAFE ride for their young drivers, this vehicle is SOLID, great to control, and eats up snow for breakfast, all while keeping the passengers safe and toasty warm (the heat is AMAZING in the winter!) For drivers who love good sound, the stock speakers and radio on this Jeep are no joke - the bass is deep and the sound is on point! Definitely a great vehicle for road trips!

5.0

Love jeeps

I personally love trucks. I love the Jeep Cherokee because it rides these Chicago streets as if there aren't any potholes. So I Thank you
