2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the representative of the 4th generation of the Grand Cherokee family. Last year, Grand Cherokee came with huge transformations so we didn’t expect any big facelift. This mid-size SUV comes in four different trim levels – Summit, Overland, Limited and Laredo with some sub-trim levels. Also, do not forget that SRT model is available. Different trim levels come with different engines which differ in terms of power figures and fuel consumption. It seems people at the company taught about everyone and try to meet everyone’s demand. Even though changes are subtle we still believe new 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee will set the world on fire. It has plenty of things to offer and in our assumption it should be popular on the market considering numerous trim levels that are offered.

It comes with an output of 290 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The third option is Hemi, 5.7 liter V8, which has 70 HP and 103 lb-ft of torque more comparing to Pentastar. Finally, the most powerful choice is 6.4 liter Hemi eight-cylinder. This V8 has staggering figures, 470 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. All engines are mated to eight-speed automatic, something we could have seen for the first time in 2014 model. Although power figures are quite decent, 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee can’t brag with fuel consumption. The 3.0l offers the best fuel efficiency among these four engines with 22 mpg and 30 mpg in a city and on highway respectively. On the other hand, 5.7l Hemi V8 has the poorest numbers – only 14/22 mpg.
