What powertrains are within this vehicle?

The standard engine on Trailhawk, Laredo, Limited, Overland and Summit trims is the 3.6-L Pentastar V-6 that hard-charges into the fray with up to 295-hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Need a diesel option? Note the 3.0-L DOHC EcoDiesel V-6 that's available on the Limited, Trailhawk, Overland and Summit models, an engine that gets 240-hp and an exceptional 420 lb.ft. of torque. The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk cannot be ignored with its supercharged 6.2-L V-8 that achieves 707-hp and 645 lb-ft of torque with the ability to tow 7,200-lbs! The Trackhawk also incorporates items like a high-capacity oil/air heat exchanger and double high-flow & multi-mode fuel pumps for ultra-levels of performance. Elective on the Limited, Overland, Trailhawk, and Summit (4x4 setup) is the 5.7-liter V-8 that will get you 360-hp and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. Need to take a lap around the track? The SRT model uses a 6.4-L V-8 engine that pulls in 475 in horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque! Some clarifying information about transmissions would be that the 3.6L, 5.7L, 3.0L, and 6.4L outfitted models receive a Torqueflite 8HP70 automatic 8-speed overdrive transmission as standard. The exemplary Trackhawk gets a Torqueflite 8HP95 automatic 8-speed overdrive transmission customized to that model with features like an accelerated shift response and a high-torque capability, both features are fresh to the Grand Cherokee line. Obviously, that model is ready to set records on the track as well!

Can you outline the safety and drive systems in this vehicle?

The Jeep Grand Cherokee descends into 2018 with seven core models: the Laredo, Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, Summit, SRT, and the Trackhawk. It also blends into that flock a few special editions, named the Upland, the Sterling Edition, the Altitude, and the High Altitude. Drive systems are big on this vehicle and can include a 4WD Quadra-Trac 1 system, a Quadra-Drive II system for more traction in the low range, a 4-mode "Selec-Terrain Traction Management System" (Mud/Sand, Snow, Auto, & Rock), Off-Road Pages, and an available Quadra-Lift Air Suspension. The lower-riding and wider-standing SRT and Trackhawk models utilize six of their own Drive Modes in the "Selec-Track System": Auto, Sport, Track, Snow, Tow, and Custom. The additional Track Mode appears on the SRT and Trackhawk models to ensure stability control, it lowers shift times by 68-percent, and more! The Sport mode assists via the paddle shifters and can minimize shift times by up to 50-percent, while the Snow mode operates a 50/50 torque redistribution and has increased traction settings. Tow mode permits a more towing-centric 60/40 torque split, and the Auto mode comes in handy for regular roads in general, self-adjusting the Grand Cherokee to match changing driving conditions. Go over to the "Selec-Speed Control" system you will find that extends Hill-ascent and Hill-descent Control as demanded, and also doesn't require brake/throttle response from a driver. This vehicle has a crawl ratio of 44.1:1 and a launch control capacity (on particular models & engine combinations), among other singular features on an SUV. The Jeep Grand Cherokee exceeds 70 safety & security characteristics as well as has an array of forward-thinking technologies that are straightforward to employ-- always a good thing! Continuing safety involves that it has four-wheel Anti-lock Brakes as standard, Hill-descent Control that works forwards and in reverse, All-speed traction, and Electronic Stability controls as standard, too. Look for supplementary amenities such as a remote-start system, a security alarm, LaneSense Lane Departure Warning Plus, Blind-Spot and Cross-Path Detection, and the LATCH system for child-seats.

A lot of design seems to have gone into the Grand Cherokee in 2018. Can you discuss that?

There is a lot of design to explore, make sure you ask us about in person when you try a Grand Cherokee out. Laredo models for the first time have cloth-patterned chairs as possibilities in Light Frost Beige or Black, and also debut 17" aluminum wheels in 2018. The 2018 Overland trim keeps the color choices going with a Brown backdrop under Light Diesel Gray accent stitching for the inside cabin. A High Altitude Edition (based on Overland) enters the frame with its own inside color-palette using Anodized Gun Metal interior accents, Low Gloss Granite Crystal badging, and even a dual-pane sunroof to let the light in! The Trackhawk model packs a racing ethos effortlessly with a flat-bottom 3-spoke steering wheel, SRT-tuned electric rack & pinion steering, a Gloss Black rear valance, 20" titanium wheels, paddle shifters, wheel flares, and Performance Pages fitted to the Trackhawk specifically. The Trackhawk has its own gloss black rear valance that sports 4" black chrome quad exhaust tips, plus, the Trackhawk's exterior can come in Rhino (gray) or Redline 2 (colors not found on others models). Tech inside is certainly proficient and could include features like the Jeep WAVE Program, a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, an acoustic windshield, Blu-Ray compatible dual screen video, and Apple CarPlay & Android Auto as standard within the newest Uconnect radio system. That system has an 8.4-inch touchscreen with a greater resolution (than the preceding year's model) that permits contemporary functions such as onscreen pinch-&-zoom.
