Jeep Grand Cherokee

Price $44,895 – $110,845
Fuel consumption 9.6 – 20.9 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 75%(view ratings)
With a choice of five engines, there is a Grand Cherokee to suit all tastes. To start, there’s a 295-horsepower V6 that delivers perfectly acceptable performance. Another V6, a diesel this time, will satisfy those looking for towing capabilities (up to 7400 pounds or 3400 kilograms). The least-powerful V8 generates 360 horsepower. Things start to get spicy with the 475-horsepower SRT version, and yet it practically looks like a scooter next to the 707-horsepower Trackhawk.
