More recent model years treat you to an abundance of infotainment features (including Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity) and high-tech safety aids (like automatic emergency braking).
Jeep’s advanced four-wheel drive systems make the pre-owned Grand Cherokee an excellent option for adventurous drivers on a budget. If you’re planning to explore off-road terrain, look for this performance gear on the used lot.
What do you need to know about the fourth-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee? This generation was an especially long one, which means you’ll find some changes from model year to model year as Jeep strove to keep the Grand Cherokee competitive.
For example, the 2012 Grand Cherokee improved mileage to help you balance smooth power with a reasonable fuel budget. The 2013 model year was the first to introduce the Trailhawk, an off-road-ready trim model that supplies best-in-class off-road capabilities.
If you’re looking for more of a modern Jeep, check out Grand Cherokees from 2014 onward. The 2014 mid-generation refresh brought an updated interior and new tech features. And these models also look different from previous ones, thanks to an updated exterior design.
From 2016 on, the Grand Cherokee is even more accommodating, with new features that include optional electric-assist power steering and a sporty new gauge cluster. The 3.6-liter gasoline-powered V6 also included automatic stop-start technology to improve fuel mileage.
Third Generation: 2005-2010
Why choose the third-generation pre-owned Jeep Grand Cherokee? Compared to previous model years, these Grand Cherokee rolled out new four-wheel drive systems for improved off-road capabilities. You’ll also love their three engine powerful options and new independent front suspension, all of which adds up to a supremely capable performance.
Inside, this crop of mid-size crossover SUVs makes a point of optimizing comfort levels. In addition to cushy seating, the cabin’s ergonomic layout helps put you at ease for the long haul. Compared to previous Grand Cherokees, third-generation models also feature improved interior fit and finish.
What do you need to know about the third generation Grand Cherokee? Beginning in 2007, shoppers could optimize performance with an optional diesel engine or a flex-fuel-capable V8. For 2008, the 4.7-liter V8 engine was recalibrated for greater power, making it a great pick for sporty drivers. However, the hardy Overland trim and the 4.7-liter V8 and diesel engines were discontinued for 2010.
