2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee at Lynch Chrysler Jeep Dodge

In the amazing Grand Cherokee, there are several 4x4 systems, access to both the Quadra-Lift air suspension and the Selec-Terrain traction management systems, and more than enough pizazz to impress the neighbors! This vehicle stands the test of time in addition to many hard-charging owners along the way. For the year 2018, Jeep developed and unleashed the Trackhawk trim, which flies by at a top speed of 180 mph --and can also get through a 1/4 mile in 11.6 seconds at 116 mph! The Grand Cherokee is already sitting pretty at the top anyway with its Trailhawk and Summit trims, so the Trackhawk is really just beyond the pale. Adding on to this legacy, and highlighting it too, is the 20-inch Heritage-wheeled, platinum-chrome badged Sterling Edition, a variant within Limited models, noting Grand Cherokee's 25th anniversary for 2018. All in all, seven core trims are available in 2018, any of which will serve you and your fellow travelers exceptionally well!

What are the engines for the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk touts a supercharged 6.2-L V8 with 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque, that can tow 7,200 pounds! Standard on Laredo, Limited, Trailhawk, Overland and Summit models is the 3.6-L Pentastar V-6 with up to 295 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Optional on the Limited, Trailhawk, Overland and Summit (4x4 models) is the 5.7-L V-8 engine that sees an impressive 360-hp and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. Let's not forget the popular 3.0-L DOHC EcoDiesel V-6 either, coming in at 240-hp and 420 lb.ft. of torque, and is an option on the Limited, Trailhawk, Overland and Summit trims. As if that was not enough, the SRT version sees a 6.4-L V-8 engine that manufactures 475 in horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque! On the 3.6-liter, 5.7-liter, 3.0-liter, and 6.4-liter equipped models, a Torqueflite 8HP70 automatic 8-speed overdrive directs the power as standard. The Trackhawk gets a Torqueflite 8HP95 automatic 8-speed overdrive transmission. That transmission supplies new high-torque capability and then extends performance with an accelerated shift response. Adding to that are double high-flow & multi-mode fuel pumps, and Trackhawk-designed transmission calibrations, and a high-capacity oil/air heat exchanger. The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee is not messing around in this category!

What are some inside design elements on the models?

In 2018, the Jeep Grand Cherokee roster is represented by seven well-adapted models: the Laredo, Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, Summit, SRT, and the Trackhawk. You will find that there is standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto via the latest Uconnect radio system with an 8.4" touchscreen that has higher resolution (than prior year's), plus, onscreen pinch-&-zoom. The 2018 Overland models allow a Brown interior color choice with Light Diesel Gray accent stitching. Within the Overland trim for 2018, there is a High Altitude Edition with a ton of style points, like Low Gloss Granite Crystal badging, a dual-pane sunroof, and Anodized Gun Metal interior accents! Laredo models now have new cloth patterned seats as options Light Frost Beige or Black, and new 17" aluminum wheels. The Trackhawk model carries a racing-focused inner world into the fore, obviously with its paddle shifters on a flat-bottom 3-spoke steering wheel. That's backed up by the other components in the Trackhawk, like 20-inch titanium wheels, a Gloss Black rear valance, SRT-tuned electric rack & pinion steering, wheel flares, and Performance Pages calibrated to the Trackhawk intentionally. It also accesses two exclusive paints for the exterior: Rhino (gray) and Redline 2.

What systems are in addition to the general powertrain for best off-road and overall performance?

A magnificent Quadra-Trac 4WD system combines with the 5 mode Selec-Track system (Sport, Snow, Track, Auto, & Tow) on the SRT and Trackhawk trims to adjust to conditions easily. The Sport mode engages paddle shifters and reduces shift times by up to 50 percent, while the Snow mode comes in handy in the winter months with its 50/50 torque management and its maximized traction settings. The Track mode adds stability control as well as lowers shift times by 68 percent! Towing gets more dependable with 60/40 torque split and compensation for road pitch and other similar factors within the Tow mode, while finally, the Auto mode adapts to most conditions automatically, picking agreeable settings no matter the setting. Additionally, the Selec-Speed Control system, without brake or throttle response from the driver, deploys Hill-ascent and Hill-descent Control as needed-- even in reverse while descending a hill! That's not to mention a crawl ratio of 44.1:1, a launch control function on certain models/engines, and the traction-easing Quadra-Drive II system.
