Major Updates: The most notable change for the year 2024 lies in what remains unchanged: Pricing largely stays the same for the 2024 model year, following significant price hikes within the Grand Cherokee lineup in 2023.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee series carries forward with minimal alterations for the 2024 model year, except for the introduction of some new wheels for select trim levels. The 30th Anniversary Edition package from the 2023 model year has now transitioned into the Anniversary Edition, acknowledging the nameplate’s 31st year.
Starting with the three-row Grand Cherokee L in 2021, Jeep has consistently expanded its mid-size SUV into a diverse line of vehicles. In 2022, it revamped the traditional two-row Grand Cherokee, and later in the same year, it introduced a 4xe plug-in hybrid variant. The redesigned Grand Cherokee earned the prestigious Best SUV of 2023 award from Cars.com and has been thoroughly assessed through our long-term test fleet.
2024 Trim Levels:
The 2024 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Cherokee L come in various trim levels, including Laredo, Altitude, Limited, Overland, and Summit. Additionally, there are X upgrades available for the Laredo and Altitude trims, as well as a premium Reserve version of the Summit.
The trim lineup for the 4xe PHEV continues to feature the exclusive Trailhawk variant, considered by Jeep as the most off-road-capable Grand Cherokee. The Trailhawk also offers a CARB State Edition, exclusively available in California and other states adhering to California Air Resources Board emissions regulations. Beyond the Trailhawk, other 4xe trim levels include the base, Overland, and Summit, with the Summit also offering a premium Reserve edition.
Powertrain Specifications, MPG, and Range:
For the 2024 model year, the Grand Cherokee retains its three powertrain options. Most gasoline Grand Cherokees come standard with a 293-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine producing 260 pounds-feet of torque. The Overland and Summit versions of the three-row Grand Cherokee L offer an optional 357-horsepower, 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 engine generating 390 pounds-feet of torque. Both engines are paired with eight-speed automatic transmissions. The V-6 is available in both rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations, while the V-8 is exclusively available in 4WD. Jeep offers three 4WD systems with increasing off-road capabilities. The six-cylinder model can tow up to 6,200 pounds, while the V-8 models are rated for up to 7,200 pounds.
The two-row 4xe plug-in hybrid powertrain incorporates a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, two electric motors, and a 17.3-kilowatt-hour battery pack. It comes standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive with a two-speed transfer case. The PHEV offers a combined output of 375 hp and 470 pounds-feet of torque, with a towing capacity of up to 6,000 pounds.
The gasoline six-cylinder achieves an EPA-rated combined fuel efficiency of 22 mpg with RWD or 4WD in the Grand Cherokee, and 21 mpg with RWD or 4WD in the Grand Cherokee L. EPA ratings for the V-8 engine and the 4xe for 2024 have not been released yet. However, the 2023 V-8 with 4WD in the Grand Cherokee L achieved a combined rating of 17 mpg. The 2023 4xe with 4WD achieved a combined rating of 56 mpg-equivalent for hybrid driving and 23 mpg in gasoline-only driving. The 2023 4xe had an EPA-rated battery electric-only range of 26 miles.
Tech Features and Options:
There are no significant new tech features for the 2024 model year. Standard tech features include USB-A and USB-C ports, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, Jeep parent Stellantis’ Uconnect 5 multimedia system with an 8.4-inch or 10.1-inch touchscreen (depending on the model and trim level), and a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster display.
Depending on the model and trim level, buyers can opt for the Uconnect 5 infotainment system with navigation, a 10-inch color head-up display, satellite radio, and wireless charging. Additionally, a 10.25-inch front-passenger display is available, offering navigation, camera viewing, and video entertainment capabilities through an HDMI port. An optional rear-seat entertainment system includes dual 10.1-inch touchscreens, an HDMI port, and built-in Amazon Fire TV. Premium audio choices encompass a nine-speaker Alpine system and a 19-speaker McIntosh system.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features and Options:
There are no significant new safety and driver-assistance features for the 2024 model year. All Grand Cherokees come standard with a robust suite of safety and driver-assistance features, including full-speed collision warning with automatic braking and detection of pedestrians and bicyclists, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, lane departure steering assist, a blind spot monitor, and rear parking assist sensors with braking.
Optional features, dependent on trim level, encompass a night vision camera with pedestrian and animal detection, a driver attention alert, traffic sign recognition, a 360-degree camera system, a video rearview mirror, and Active Driving Assist, a hands-on Level 2 assistance system for highways that maintains a set distance from traffic ahead and actively centers the vehicle in its lane. The Grand Cherokee can also be equipped with Intersection Collision Assist, which issues audible and visual alerts upon detecting a potential collision with other vehicles, as well as Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist, which identifies available parking spaces and steers the vehicle into a parking spot while providing guidance on shifting, braking, and accelerating.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has not yet released ratings for the SUV’s 2024 models. However, both the 2023 Grand Cherokee and Grand Cherokee L received the highest Top Safety Pick Plus awards from the IIHS. These vehicles earned top scores in crashworthiness tests, headlight assessments, and advanced or superior ratings for their standard crash-prevention systems. It’s important to note that these IIHS awards apply only to Grand Cherokees built after March 2023 and Grand Cherokee Ls built after May 2023, following modifications made by Jeep to address fuel tank and headlight issues identified during earlier testing.
