The Jeep Grand Cherokee: How Does 2017 Compare to 2018?

Sometimes when a new car model comes out, it's barely distinguishable from the model it's replacing. That's the not the case with the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee. While it shares many of the same foundations as the (still excellent) 2017 version, the new Jeep Grand Cherokee delivers new features and trims that help to elevate it a step beyond last year's package.

What exactly does the 2018 Grand Cherokee do better?

  • Power. The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee was a powerful SUV. It was one of the best and strongest on the market. Its top-tier powertrain, a 6.4-liter V8 engine, was capable of 475 horsepower and 470 pounds-feet of torque. The 2018 model goes even further, delivering the unique power of the Trackhawk trim. Equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharged V8, it's been rated to produce a whopping 707 horsepower and 645 pounds-feet torque.
  • Media Integration. Many cars are pushing hard on giving the driver optimized controls that help them enjoy their favorite media with ease while driving. Unlike previous models, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler upgrades it media controls with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. This is a big boon for Jeeps' flagship vehicle.

If these improvements aren't must-haves for you, then buying a 2017 Grand Cherokee might be a good option for you. The 2017 model remains a great car, after all. If you're itching to slip behind the wheel of the best five-seat SUV currently on the market, there's no substitute for the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
