2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Walk Around


With its classic SUV shape, the Grand Cherokee carefully blends traditional with contemporary design. The old workaday look is gone, overtaken by a more pedigreed appearance. Overall, it’s quite handsome, though not everyone praises today’s understated, minimally-chromed grille.

LED taillights and strong detail work help give the rear end a distinctively assertive look. Measured against luxury-brand competitors, it’s quite sophisticated.

Interior

Slickly upscale and richly equipped, the cabin on upper-level models features materials and textures that match luxury-brand competitors. Genuine wood trim accents upper-trim dashboards and doors. Even the entry-level Laredo demonstrates excellent layout and design.

Satisfying seats hold five grown-ups, in a roomy interior. Wise use of available space results in adult-size legroom all-around. Big doors open 78 degrees to ease entry/exit.

Except for the Laredo’s short, flat seat bottoms, front occupants get wide, adequately-bolstered cushions. Six-footers can expect ample head clearance.

Three riders fit in back, in reasonable comfort. Reclining seatbacks tilt 12 degrees each way, and back seats flip down using one lever. Cargo volume with seats up totals 36.3 cubic feet.

A console bin holds illuminated audio ports. Uconnect infotainment systems with simple interfaces rank among the best.
