The Jeep Grand Cherokee has made a place for itself in American culture like few other vehicles. While its brother the Wrangler is possibly the most recognizable vehicle on the road today, generations of South Carolina families have chosen the Grand Cherokee as their perfect family vehicle.

The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee carries on that legacy with a stunning range of trims, options, engines, and more. But there are some things that all 2019 Grand Cherokees have in common, namely top-notch interior construction, one of the industry's leading tech interfaces, and an impressive level of practicality. But there's so much more than that in a Grand Cherokee. We'll take a look below at what makes it one of the best-selling vehicles in the country year after year.

Rugged & Refined Design

There are some vehicles you just know are meant for pure off-roading. Some are clearly family haulers and not much more. Some scream luxury and class. But few put them all together like the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Whether pulling up to a high society event, picking the kids up from school, or conquering the toughest backwoods trails, the Grand Cherokee always feels at home. A lot of this has to do with Jeep's emphasis on quality.

With its long history as the off-roader's favorite brand, Jeep knows how to build a vehicle that can stand the test of time. From its solid construction to its handsome, powerful lines, the Grand Cherokee exudes quality like few vehicles can. And while its wide range of trim levels might appear intimidating to a first-time shopper, what it really does is give owners a great amount of control over what features and style cues matter most to them.

Power & Performance

The standard engine on the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a 3.6l V6 that produces 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Most South Carolina buyers will find that this engine offers plenty of power, and gives the Grand Cherokee a confident feel when driving, whether around town or on the highway. On Limited Grand Cherokee models and above, there's also a 3.0l turbodiesel that is extremely attractive for its combination of power and efficiency.

But it wouldn't be a Jeep Grand Cherokee if there weren't powerful V8 options that appeal to the hardcore off-roaders among us. Jeep's 5.7l V8 puts out 360 horsepower, and its satisfying growl will have owners falling in love every time they engage the ignition or start a pass on the highway.

While the three options listed above are likely to cover all the bases for most drivers, there's also a 6.4l V8 at 475 horsepower, and a monstrous turbo V8 that absolutely screams at 707 horsepower. Yes, a midsize SUV with 707 horsepower. You'll only find that kind of combination in the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

As far as what you can do with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the sky's the limit. Whether you're looking for a comfortable and stylish family vehicle, or want something with some more oomph, there's a Grand Cherokee for you. The Trailhawk is one of the most popular trims available on the 2019 Grand Cherokee, as it retains a lot of the Grand Cherokee's comfortable on-road demeanor, while adding seriously heavy duty off-roading potential.

As Greer buyers move up in trim level, they'll find the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee transforms from a well-appointed SUV to a serious luxury vehicle, complete with air suspension, premium leather upholstery, and a range of other upgrades. This is a vehicle you'll want to experience in person to see just how versatile a choice it is.

Test Drive the Grand Cherokee

While longtime Jeep owners would probably be just fine buying a 2019 Grand Cherokee sight unseen, newcomers to the brand will definitely want to test drive at least one Grand Cherokee configuration. This is a vehicle that truly delivers on its promise of a "do anything, anywhere" SUV, and it appeals to almost everyone in search of a crossover, whether it be for its luxury appointments, raw power, or unique off-road skills.
