2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

With the release of the new 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee you do not only get what you see from the car at first glace, you get a lot more from it. The car looks okay but it actually hides more than it shows and is in that way a perfect vehicle. The car actually has high luxury inside of it and offers an immense array of subtle and very nice luxurious items. The vehicle is also capable for off-road venture and does come with high fuel efficiency even with a diesel engine.

The 2016 Jeep grand Cherokee is essentially a great family vehicle but a vehicle which is not afraid to go off the path and change the usual type of terrain for something more different and helps  you get to some parts where other vehicle cannot take you. Actually, this family hauler will enable you to do some things that you would not dare think of doing with other types of crossovers. The power allows it to easy haul a trailer if necessary.

The development of the Grand Cherokee has been concentrated coming from inside out. In fact along the years, the interior of the car has been the part which has grown for the most part. The vehicle has been getting more and more luxurious and comfortable inside while keeping a gritty and rough look from the outside. Owners will appreciate the fact knowing what the car can actually do. Even if you do not ever decide to leave the pavement and do some off-roading it is still a good thing having a possibility of doing that.

There is something for everyone here wit the latest 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and as the release date is coming ever so closely our review will help you get some primary knowledge about this vehicle so enjoy.

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee interior design

This 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee model perhaps accounts for the best kind of an interior that the Chrysler company has produced. The new Charger and Durango cars have perhaps made great changes to adopt a great looking interior but the Grand Cherokee has set the standard with its 2016 redesign. The car now has an extremely stylish look which cannot be superseded by any of the rivaling cars that come in the segment.  Even in the base version, the car has a warm and very nice looking interior. In fact, all versions get a chunky three-spoke steering when design combined with a very useful center stack with a metallic-plastic trim and five-inch LCD touchscreen for audio.

The  Limited, Overland, and Summit models step things a bit up in the materials department as the used ones are extremely quality ones and gives us more high-end options inside of them. There is a read wood trim placed on the dash, the steering wheel and the doors of the car. This interior actually goes best with the organic trim designs and does not fare well with brightwork, and the best example from all of the trims is the Summit which makes a perfect combination of everything and brings it all together in a perfect fashion. Last year we had a Summit California Edition available but this year this one will be traded in for a High Altitude Special Edition which does not add dark chrome accents.

Exterior

This new 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee in its current generation and design actually managed to bridge the gap between a traditional and a modern design better than any other models before it. People are perhaps going to say that latest grille and the entire front end for that matter was not a good addition to this car, but in fact the way everything works together here is very cohesive and is in that way perfect for the car. The changes done to the front were perhaps introduced in order to make the Grand Cherokee fit in better with the regular Cherokee which has a radical look to it all-together, but it turn out to work pretty well for this model in the end. The grille is thinner and smaller and has a lot of chrome added to it.

Compared to even the luxury brand names, the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee actually seems much sophisticated. Looking at it from the side, we can actually notice a bit of the BMW X5 there, and all version actually get a spoiler placed a the back. The LED taillights are a fabulous addition to the rear-end of the car and gives it a bit more attitude, which is noticed the most with the SRT high-performance models.

Engine

The base level 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee is going to be powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 engine. It actually adds variable valve timing, flex-fuel capability and also has direct injection. With an upgrade of 5 hp than before the car is able to produce 295 horsepower in total. The second engine option is the stronger 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 engine which make the car feel like a Dodge Charger. This a a great sounding engine but in fact it does not make a whole lot of difference when we talk about fuel mileage of the car. Finally, the latest option is the 3.0-liter turbodiesel six cylinder given by VM Motori. This one is able to make 240 hp and 420 pound-feet of torque and with its very strong low- and mid-range torque it has a great quality for off-roading.
