2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

01/02/2015



The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee ranks 5 out of 13 Affordable Midsize SUVs. This ranking is based on our analysis of published reviews and test drives of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, as well as reliability and safety data.

The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee distinguishes itself with a first-class interior, impressive off-roading capability and a well-mannered driving experience, reviewers say.

Test drivers agree that the 2015 Grand Cherokee's base V6 engine produces plenty of power. They say the available diesel engine gives the Grand Cherokee strong acceleration off the line, and the two available V8 engines, especially the larger V8 in the high-performance SRT model, generate very impressive acceleration. Reviewers remark that the standard

Jeep® Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel Named 2015 Green SUV

Jeep® Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel Named 2015 Green SUV of the Year™ by Green Car Journal

Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel delivers 30 miles per gallon with a driving range of more than 730 miles

Grand Cherokee is the most awarded SUV ever

January 22, 2015 , Washington, D.C. -

2015 Jeep® Grand Cherokee Summit


2015 Jeep® Grand Cherokee Summit California Edition


Green Car Journal has named the Jeep® Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel its 2015 Green SUV of the Year™. The announcement was made today at the Washington Auto Show in Washington, D.C.

“The Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel delivers what today’s drivers really want in an efficient SUV,” said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and CarsOfChange.com. “It offers a do-everything nature with exceptional comfort, power, functionality and driving range, plus surprising efficiency that delivers lower environmental impact.”

Green SUV of the Year™ finalists include SUVs and crossovers that feature notable environmental achievement while also providing all the attributes expected of this versatile class of vehicle. The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel was selected as a winner from five finalists by a jury made up of automotive experts and Green Car Journal staff members.

“We are truly delighted that the editors of Green Car Journal have named our full-size premium SUV – the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel – the Green SUV of the Year,” said Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand. “We take pride that Green Car Journal’s jurors recognized the blend of efficiency, capability, comfort and performance that the Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel offers consumers.

“Jeep Grand Cherokee is the most awarded SUV in history, and we’re pleased to add this significant award from Green Car Journal to the Jeep trophy case,” Manley added.

Producing a class-leading 240 horsepower and a massive 420 lb.-ft. of torque, Jeep Grand Cherokee’s award-winning 24-valve dual-overhead cam 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 delivers clean-diesel technology with low CO2 emissions. The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel delivers a best-in-class 30 miles per gallon (mpg) courtesy of its 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine and standard eight-speed transmission, with an unmatched driving range of more than 730 miles and towing capability of 7,400 pounds.

All of Jeep Grand Cherokee’s engines (3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6, Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6, and 5.7-liter V-8) are mated to FCA US LLC’s eight-speed automatic transmission. In addition to enhancing fuel economy, the robust and durable eight-speed transmission delivers quick acceleration and precise, smooth shifting, enhancing ride quality to luxury car levels. An additional benefit is a low crawl ratio of 44.1:1 to aid in climbing over – or through – tough obstacles, when equipped with a two-speed transfer case.

Jeep’s EcoDiesel Grand Cherokee: A Clean Vehicle That Loves Mud

October 13, 2015


With all this talk of dirty diesel engines and massive recalls dominating the news cycle, we’re thrilled to put a diesel in the spotlight for all the right reasons, because when it comes to the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4×4 EcoDiesel, it ticks all the right boxes while keeping any issues to a minimum. Even reviews from fellow critic, Road & Track (who drove it for a long-term feature), loved the EcoDiesel from start to finish, finding zero reasons to gripe about it — aside from the pricy powertrain.

The idea of a diesel Jeep intrigued me ever since I first heard about this version coming to market a few years back. And with one of the first stories I ever covered at Autos Cheat Sheet being the release of an EcoDiesel version of the Wrangler, let’s just say the chance to get my hands on a modern oil-burning Jeep has been high on my list for a while.

So in a stroke of extreme good luck, I recently had the chance to take a hardcore, optioned-out Limited version on some rugged, mud-filled paths. Since these trails were dicey enough to warrant a team of spotters, action shots were a little tough to come by. But after emerging on the other end, I couldn’t wait to get some photos to do it justice, because not only was I impressed by what the Grand Cherokee could do, I was left wondering if there was anything out there this $55,000 SUV couldn’t take.


Starting off, the guttural noises emanating from the Cherokee’s 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 took a little getting used to, but once the trails presented themselves, thoughts of what was powering this torquey SUV were replaced by the need to concentrate on the increasing amount of mud and...........
