Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The Grand Cherokee is not a cheap car, but it does cost less spec-for-spec than its main rivals. Average clamed economy of 37.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 198g/km are competitive, but depreciation is likely to be steeper than on rivals such as the BMW X5 and Land Rover Discovery. The SRT8 is predictably expensive to run but, given the performance on offer, its premiums aren’t unjustified.

We’d recommend going for an Overland model if you can stretch the budget, because the air suspension it has makes a big difference to the way Jeep handles and drives. It has more kit, too.

Overview

Well equipped and well priced, but not as practical or classy inside as it should be

  • A formidable off-roader
  • Lots of equipment
  • Good ride on air suspension
  • Pleasant to drive
  • Average ride on standard springs
  • No seven-seat option
  • Interior isn’t that impressive
