Motorists in search of a powerful mid-size SUV with off-road style and capability need to look no further than the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee. This iconic 5-passenger sport utility vehicle from Jeep returns for 2019 with not only a highly refined powertrain and impressive on- and off-road capabilities, but also a plush interior with advanced and intuitive technologies.
As the Most Awarded SUV Ever*, it's hard to compare the Grand Cherokee to other SUVs, but if you are shopping other models, you may be considering SUVs like the Ford Explorer or Toyota 4Runner. Community CDJR Of Bloomington invites you to discover this versatile mid-size SUV at our dealership near Martinsville and Bedford, IN with a tour and test drive at your convenience.
Comparing the new Jeep Grand Cherokee's performance to rivals like the Toyota 4Runner and Ford Explorer isn't quite fair, since the Jeep offers more powerful engines than both. With its standard 3.6-liter V6 engine, the Grand Cherokee delivers 295 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, which outperforms the both the Explorer's 3.5-liter V6 and the 4Runner's 4.0-liter V6.
While the Toyota 4Runner only offers its 4.0-liter V6, both the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ford Explorer provide a choice of multiple powertrains. Comparing the top gasoline engines of the Ford and Jeep, you'll find that the Grand Cherokee's 5.7-liter HEMI V8 delivers significantly more torque than the Explorer's 3.5-liter turbo V6. For even greater torque, though, consider the Grand Cherokee's available 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 engine that generates 420 lb-ft of torque, compared to just 350 lb-ft in the range-topping Explorer model.
Fuel economy is yet another area where the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee shines. Select either the standard 3.6-liter V6 or the available turbo-diesel engine in the Jeep and you'll enjoy greater EPA-estimated city and highway MPG than a comparable Toyota 4Runner or Ford Explorer model.
Thanks to its cylinder deactivation and automatic engine start/stop technology plus an eight-speed transmission, the 2019 lineup of Grand Cherokee SUVs provides the efficiency you are after along with its impressive capabilities.
Motorists looking to maximize cargo-hauling abilities when rear passengers are present will be happy to discover that the new Grand Cherokee boasts 36.3 cubic feet of cargo capacity with all seats in the upright position. This figure compares favorably to both the Ford Explorer and Toyota's 4Runner, which provide only 21 cubic feet and 9 cubic feet, respectively.
If you're looking for the ability to transport even more than what will fit inside your SUV, then turn to this Jeep SUV for its stellar towing abilities. While the Ford and Toyota models max out at 5,000 pounds of towing capacity, the Grand Cherokee offers up to a 7,400-pound maximum towing rating, which means you'll be able to transport your boat or any weekend toys with confidence!
