Used Jeep Grand Cherokee (2005 - 2010) Review

The Grand Cherokee is a much improved large 4x4, with convincing off-road capabilities and the rugged looks to boot. The familiar shape and style is carried over from the previous model, while a handful of new engines and better road manners have broadened the car's appeal.

Lags behind class best, interior doesn't have a premium feel, poor economy

Parkers Rating:

3.5 out of 5

The Grand Cherokee is a much improved large 4x4, with convincing off-road capabilities and the rugged looks to boot. The familiar shape and style is carried over from the previous model, while a handful of new engines and better road manners have broadened the car's appeal. Four engines are offered but it's the 3.0-litre diesel which is more popular than the three petrol V8 units, as it strikes a more acceptable balance between power and fuel economy.

The Grand Cherokee isn’t flawless and rivals like the Land Rover Discovery offer more room and a higher-quality finish for similar money. But overall, it's a stronger package than ever.

What owners say...

 Great for a family so when lugging around all their gear its been really good. The drop down DVD player in the back helps in that respect though!

 Ride height when living in The Lake District being able to see over all the stone walls.

 Its luxury at a budget price with all the power on tap when needed. I've had a top of the range LPG fitted (PRINS VSI) and this 4x4 now returns a healthy 24 MPG around town and 30+ on longer trips...
