Independent front and multi-link rear suspension systems and a unibody structure have made the Grand Cherokee's frame very rigid. Jeep's Quadra-Lift air suspension, capable of lifting the vehicle 4.5 inches for more off-road ground clearance and Selec-Terrain traction control systems are available on 4-wheel-drive trims only.
Standard equipment on the base Laredo includes keyless entry and ignition, 18-inch aluminum wheels, heated mirrors, rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls. An 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is also standard.
The Limited trim adds a power liftgate, power sunroof, integrated turn signals in the mirrors, exterior chrome accents, heated front seats, leather upholstery, a garage door transmitter, a 120V AC power outlet, 4 USB ports, and a heated steering wheel.
The 4-wheel-drive models are all seriously capable but can be upgraded to meet whatever any level of off-road intensity the customer is looking for. Skid plates, hill descent control and a high-performance Quadra-Drive II 4WD system are available.
Standard safety equipment across the lineup includes 4-wheel antilock disc brakes, active head restraints, a full array of airbags, blind spot warning and rear collision mitigation.
