The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a midsize SUV that comes with good offroading and towing capabilities. The base powertrain is a 3.6 liter V6, and it comes with an option of a more powerful 5.7 liter Hemi V8. The 8-speed transmission manages the power and directs it to 2WD and 4WD drivetrains (whichever one you select). 

The interior really is grand, it has an ample amount of space for people in the back row too. The infotainment system is good, and if needed, plenty of comfort options available for people who want that. The trunk space is good as well, makes you wonder why you need to tow anything. Jeep priced the Grand Cherokee at a starting MSRP of $30,990. Consequently, it lands in the same ballpark as the Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Explorer, and Subaru Outback

Not quite what I expected!

Pros - Iconic styling. Good space on the inside. Great on highways.

Cons - Poor reliability. Pricier.

Not quite reliable as it looks! The $32k price tag for the three year-old Grand Cherokee certainly doesn't make any sense now. The SUV was not run much by the previous owner and I really thought I could save a few bucks. But within 6k miles of driving it around, I started facing issues witht he engine. THere would be engine malfunction light instances quite often. Moreover, what bothered me most was the stalling issue which occured multiple time. The first time it happened left me stranded in the other side of the town in the dead of the night. Really a mistake buying the Jeep! The buying experience was actually better than what SUV has turned out anyway. Although the price seemed a little steep, I was happy to find a low-run GC back then!

An okay family car.

Pros - High on safety, Practical, Family-friendly

Cons - I don't find much bad in it

For people who spend most of their time driving inside the city. Best all rounder affordable SUV with good performance and fuel efficient. When compared to the design its pale and not so classy but the boot space is appreciable Very satisfied with the experience. Perfectly pleasant staff and always willing to help i any way they can.

Comfortable

Pros - Comfortable, lots of space, powerful, fun

Cons - Transmission is not good, the cabin is not very well insulated from noise

Really practical and comfortable I love the Grand Cherokee design. I absolutely adore it!! It looks robust and sturdy and is far more practical and family-friendly. Great, for exactly what I wanted within my budget.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a highly recognizable offering by Jeep, and largely by the FCA. The SUV has some outstanding pulling power and offers two engine options: a 3.6L V-6 and the SRT trim with a Dodge sourced 5.7L HEMI V-8. The Grand Cherokee has great space, a classic and well-outfitted interior, and even some outstanding off-roading prowess. Its design remains old-school and gives it an undeniable road presence. The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee is versatile and adapts to the driving conditions with ease. While its base price is affordable, the optional features that the brand offers with the SUV cause the price to skyrocket rather quickly.

We Recommend 

We recommend buying the Limited trim with the all-wheel-drive drivetrain. This trim offers the best of what is available and you expect at this price point, these include leather seats, parking sensors, heated rear seats, 18” wheels, and a good amount of technology. We would not recommend the bigger engine, as the regular offering is plenty.

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Engine and Performance

7.8/10

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is powered by a 3.6 liter V6, which makes 290hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. There is another engine option - a 5.7 liter V8, which makes 360hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. As standard, both engines are paired to 8-speed automatic transmissions which direct all the power to the rear wheels or all the wheels (4WD), depending on the drivetrain you select.

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Acceleration

In the performance tests, the Jeep Grand Cherokee does the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 7.1 seconds and the standing quarter-mile in 15.4 seconds and will achieve a top speed of 128 mph. When equipped with the 5.7 liter V8 it does the 0-60 sprint in 6.7 seconds.

The Chevrolet Traverse and Subaru Outback manage similar timings as the Jeep Grand Cherokee and differ only minutely, 0.1 seconds to be precise. The 2016 Traverse manages the best-in-class top speed of 130 MPH, which is above average for its segment. 

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ride and Handling

The ride and handling qualities of the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee remain true to the brand's level of refinement and sophistication. It is domineering in its drive and bestows a great sense of comfort to the driver. It handles well both in the city traffic and on the highway and maintains an authentic experience even during high-speed cornering. Like every other car from the brand, it is a serious off-roader that devours over rough patches and uneven terrains with ease. The 8-speed automatic transmission is a blessing in disguise and adds to the capabilities of this bold vehicle. While the base engine is peppy enough to keep you grinning, the V8 engine is the best bet in the segment, that with its jaunty nature gives the driver unparalleled confidence. As for every other occupant, the tranquility of the cabin is noteworthy and its brilliance reflects in its drivability. 

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Braking 

The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee's braking capabilities are not the best in the segment, but it sure manages class-competing performance. It features the largest brakes in the segment that measure 13-inch both at the front and back. The ventilated disc brakes it features help in bringing the vehicle to a halt in 121ft, allowing it to rank third in the segment.

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Fuel Economy

6.0/10

The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers 19 mpg in the city, 26 mpg on the highway, and a combined mpg of 22. The midsize SUV comes with a fuel capacity of 24.6 gallons, which gives it a range of 467 miles in the city, 640 miles on the highway, and 541 miles combined. With the 5.7 liter V8, the fuel economy decreases, offering 17 mpg combined, which will make the range reduce to a mid-400-mile mark. However, with the base engine, the 2016 Grand Cherokee manages frugality better than most of its competitors, something that would attract buyers even more.

The most combined range is offered by the Jeep Grand Cherokee with 541 miles. Then comes the Subaru Outback with a range of 407 miles, the Chevrolet Traverse with 396 miles, and then comes the Ford Explorer with 372 miles. The difference between the above cars is not only due to the mpg figures but also due to the big difference in the fuel capacity of the Jeep and the rest. However, if efficiency is taken into consideration solely, the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse and Ford Explorer have weak points to work on. 

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Interior

8.7/10

The Jeep Grand Cherokee can seat 5 occupants in the interior of the vehicle comfortably. The front row seats are manually adjustable, and there is the option of getting an optional extra of an 8-way power-adjustable seat for the driver. The Limited trim and onwards features 8-way power-adjustable front seats. The seats also have the features of heating and ventilation. The rear seats also get heating features (Limited trim onwards). 

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV Dashboard

The interior upholstery is cloth on the base trim. As you go higher in trims, there is leather upholstery and extended leather upholstery. There are interior trims featuring wood on the steering wheel and real wood interior trim. The cabin of the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the pinnacle of practicality, and consists of abundant usable elements, and has ample storage space on offer.

The most legroom in the front is offered by the Ford Explorer and the Subaru Outback, both offering 42.9 inches of legroom, the Jeep is the least. However, it offers the second most space in the back row with nearly the same amount of legroom as the front. When seating capacity is compared, both SUVs, the Chevrolet Traverse and Ford Explorer can seat seven passengers each. However, amongst the class, the Explorer's cabin is the most refined. Few key features include-

  • Manually adjustable front seats
  • available 8-power adjustable front seats (standard on the higher trims)
  • Heated and ventilation functions 
  • Heated rear seats
  • Leather upholstery 
  • Available extended leather upholstery 

How intuitive is the Infotainment unit?

The base model of the Jeep Grand Cherokee comes with a 5” touchscreen that runs on the Uconnect system. This can be upgraded to the 8.4” touchscreen running on the same system, which comes in the higher trims. There is also SiriusXM satellite radio which comes with a 1-year subscription. There is a 6-speaker sound system fitted stock, but as you go higher up in the trims, a 10 speaker sound system becomes available.

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV Infotainment System

The infotainment system of the 2016 Ford Explorer has the following features:

  • 6-speaker sound system
  • 10-speaker sound system
  • Voice activation
  • Steering wheel controls
  • Aux Audio input
  • SiriusXM satellite radio 
  • Navigation (Overland and above)

2016 Jeep Cherokee Cargo Capacity

The ascendancy that the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee gains over its competitors on the inside, also extends to its cargo capacity. It manages a total trunk volume of 36.3 cubic feet and is adequate for all of the buyer's needs. However, if you still feel you want extra space, the split-folding rear backseat is a blessing in disguise.

In terms of cargo capacity, it is only the 2016 Subaru Outback that manages to compete with the 2016 Grand Cherokee and has a total trunk space of 35.5 cubic feet. While the Chevrolet Traverse and Ford Explorer feel rather underwhelming with the latter lurking at the bottom of the table at 21 cubic feet.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of the best-looking SUVs out there. Each trim comes with its own exterior styling along with a lot of optional extras. The base trim features 17-inch with the option of 18” wheels. There is also the off-road Adventure I group pack, which adds a skid plate, tow hooks, a full-size spare wheel, and all-terrain tires. 

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV Side View

The Limited trim gets all off-road adventure I group as an optional extra as well. The Overland trim gets 20” wheels and dual chrome exhaust tips and towing package as standard along with body-colored exterior trim. The Summit trim adds 20” polished wheels to the mix along with a sports body kit and black exterior accents to make it look different from the rest. All trims of the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee feature the traditional seven slate grille that allows it to fall into the brand's designing strategy. As expected, it sports the best-in-class ground clearance making it an apt pick for off-roading adventures.

  • 17” wheels
  • 18” alloy wheels on limited and overland trim
  • 20” polished wheels on summit trim
  • Black exterior accents
  • Available skid plates

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Safety

8.3/10

The NHTSA has given the Jeep Grand Cherokee an overall safety rating of 5-star out of a possible 5-stars for the 4WD and 4-star overall rating for the 2WD versions. In the IIHS tests, it has scored multiple “good” rated scores in its individual tests but has failed to get a Top Safety Pick award from the organization. That being said, the Grand Cherokee comes with many safety features. As standard, it gets electronic stability control, brake assist, and child safety locks. While the midsize SUV is safe, its reliability may not follow a similar suit. Some specialized safety specifications like:

  • Roll Stability Control
  • Electronic Stability Control
  • Uconnect Access emergency SOS 
  • Rear Parking sensors
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring system
  • Side Impact beams
  • Multiple airbag system
  • Rearview camera

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 2016 Chevrolet Traverse

The 2016 Chevrolet Traverse falls into a niche and competitive segment, that prioritizes space and nimbleness in driving. Both the, 2016 Cherokee and Traverse aptly fit into the market, with their adequately powered engines that manage a similar level of performance. However, the 2016 Traverse is better off when it comes to space and braking capabilities but lacks behind in fuel efficiency and cargo capacity. With an equal split in aspects, both SUVs make for an alluring proposition and choices would depend on what factor buyers prioritize while making decisions. 

2016 Chevrolet Traverse

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 2016 Ford Explorer

From the word go, the 2016 Ford Explorer gains ground over its competitors with its well-to-do acceleration capabilities and braking performance. It is the quickest and fastest in the segment, but it comes at the cost of fuel economy, While the Explorer can seat seven passengers, the rear seat feels cramped and eats into the cargo space. Thus, on the practicality front, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is a better option. 

2016 Ford Explorer Front View

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 2016 Subaru Outback 

To differentiate between the 2016 Subaru Outback and Jeep Grand Cherokee is a herculean task. Both SUVs are eerily similar in all known aspects. While engine capacities differ, both the SUVs have similar acceleration, fuel economy, and can seat five passengers each. The similarities extend with the quality and refinement on offer and with ground clearances that differ by 0.1 inches, they make for viable options. So, which SUV fits you best, will depend on your ultimate liking and it is a purely subjective decision,

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Final Verdict

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a good mid-size SUV. It comes with a good engine, although the option of putting a Hemi under the hood, two drivetrains for you to select from, and multiple trim levels with individual features, make it an attractive offering. The interior is spacious for everything you might want the SUV for and has a good amount of technology and safety features as well, making it a good SUV to get. It reflects top-notch craftsmanship and is a true off-roader to make it a typical offering from the brand.
