As the most capable SUV in its class, the new Grand Cherokee Trail Rated® delivers off-road dominance with a Quadra-Lift® Air Suspension, Selec-Speed® Control and Quadra-Drive® II with a rear Electronic Limited-Slip Differential.
The Trail Rated® features a 25.7° approach angle, 22.8° breakover angle, 27.1° departure angle and 10.8 inches of ground clearance when you adjust off-road settings.
Quadra-Drive® II is our most advanced 4x4 system. Standard on Grand Cherokee Trailhawk®, it delivers superior all-weather capability by transferring up to 100% of engine torque to a single wheel if needed.
Jeep® Grand Cherokee offers three available 4x4 systems - Quadra-Lift®, Quadra-Trac II® and Quadra-Drive® II. So if you just need to tackle rough weather or you’re the ultimate off-roader, Grand Cherokee can handle it.
The standard Selec-Terrain system includes five modes to tackle any type of terrain. Traction is also enhanced through Quadra-Trac II® or Quadra-Drive II® 4x4 systems. The Quadra-Lift® air suspension system, with five height settings, lets you take things to another level.
This revolutionary system gives you ultimate control of Jeep® Grand Cherokee’s suspension. You can lower the vehicle’s height by 40 mm for easy entry, exit and loading; or you can rise it to increase clearance from the ground when driving off road. The system will also raise the vehicle from back to front to help keep headlights focused on the road.
Quadra-Drive® II gives you excellent capability and includes an Electronic Limited-Slip Differential (ELSD). It constantly transfers up to 100% of torque to the wheel(s) with most grip, to help deliver year-round traction on wet or dry surfaces
Quadra-Trac II® offers all-speed traction control to help keep you on course. If wheel slippage occurs, torque can be routed to the axle with the most traction. Low-range helps provide rock-crawling prowess.
Remarkably powerful and surprisingly fuel efficient, the 5.7L V8 engine puts out 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque for a class-leading 7,200 lb towing capacity. Variable Valve Timing (VVT) and FuelSaver technology, together with a new 8-speed automatic transmission, enable it to achieve fuel economy of up to 9.9L/100 km highway driving.
Jeep® Grand Cherokee can tow an impressive maximum capacity of up to 7200 lb. The Trailer Sway Control (TSC) feature helps stop trailers swaying and improves handling in adverse conditions like crosswinds, traffic or incorrect weight distribution on the trailer. TSC is automatically activated when the system senses the trailer is swaying more than it should.
