2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a five-seat mid-size SUV that competes with the Toyota 4Runner, Toyota Highlander, Volkswagen Touareg, Ford Explorer and Land Rover Range Rover Sport. It's offered in Laredo, Limited, Overland, Summit and high-performance SRT trim levels. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and three four-wheel-drive systems are available.

What's New on the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

New features in the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee include an active noise cancellation system, a carpeted cargo mat, illuminated door sills and more acoustic laminated glass in the Summit trim. A California Edition Appearance Package adds platinum chrome and body-color exterior trim as well as 20-inch aluminum wheels to the Summit model, and Argentina Tan leather upholstery is also available.

How Does the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Compare to Other Mid-Size SUVs?

The Grand Cherokee seats five, but the Ford Explorer has seating for seven. However, the Grand Cherokee overtakes the Explorer in interior comfort, off-road ability, easy-to-use tech and a unique diesel engine. Compared with the Toyota Highlander, the Grand Cherokee offers better equipment and a more refined interior. It even has better fuel mileage with its available diesel engine than the Highlander Hybrid does, all while supplying more than twice as much towing power.

What Features in the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Are Most Important?

The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee is offered with four engines. A standard 3.6-liter V-6 supplies 290 horsepower and 260 pounds-feet of torque, while an available 5.7-liter V-8 produces 360 hp and 390 pounds-feet. A 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 reaches 240 hp and 420 pounds-feet of torque, and the Grand Cherokee SRT comes equipped with a 475-hp, 6.4-liter V-8 engine. All models include an eight-speed automatic transmission, and rear-wheel drive is standard. Three four-wheel-drive systems, a traction management system and an adjustable air suspension are all available.

Significant standard features include 17-inch aluminum wheels, LED taillights, automatic headlights and fog lights, cloth upholstery, a 7-inch instrument panel screen, 5.4-inch touchscreen CD stereo system, dual-zone automatic air conditioning and cruise control. Available features include power-folding side mirrors, a power liftgate, LED daytime running lights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a single- or dual-panel moonroof, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, power tilt/telescoping steering wheel, heated steering wheel, 8.4-inch touchscreen, navigation system, a Harman Kardon premium stereo and a dual-screen Blu-ray rear entertainment system.

As with all new vehicles, the Jeep Grand Cherokee includes front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system. Side curtain and front side-impact airbags are standard. Forward collision warning, lane departure warning, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot warning with rear cross-path detection and a backup camera are all available.

Should I Buy the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a strong choice if you want an off-road-ready SUV with a comfortable interior. The available 8.4-inch touchscreen is easy to use, and the Summit trim is sharply designed and well-equipped. While the cost of the available diesel engine, a frustrating T-handle electronic shifter and some suspect interior materials might push away some buyers, those are minor issues overall.
