The 2019 Grand Cherokee has 12 trims, and it offers two drivetrains. The trims available in a 4×2 or 4×4 configuration are the Altitude, Laredo, Laredo E, Upland, Overland, Limited, Limited X, Summit and High Altitude. The SRT, Trackhawk, and Trailhawk, are all standard with a 4×4 drivetrain.
Jeep offers a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine as the standard power plant on all vehicles except the Trackhawk, and SRT trims, as those vehicles feature a performance-oriented engine instead. The Variable Valve Timing (VVT) and the Electric start-stop (ESS) technology works to optimize the performance, and it saves fuel economy. Under the hood, there will be the classic 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine which generates a 295 horsepower and a 260 lb-ft of torque.
For those wanting additional power, there is the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine, and there’s an optional upgrade for all 4×4 drivetrains (except on the Trackhawk and SRT trims). The Grand Cherokee SRT has a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 which can generate a 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.

On the Grand Cherokee, Jeep offers several off-road 4×4 systems. There’s one that includes the Selec-Terrain System which is the Quadra-Trac I 4WD system, and there’s another one that is designed for all-weather capability. The Selec-Terrain is standard on the Laredo, Laredo E, and Altitude trims.
The trims, Trailhawk, Overland, Limited, Limited X, High Altitude and the Summit, all have a two-speed transfer case that notices and corrects the tire slippage. The Selec-Terrain Traction Control System allows drivers to choose their preferred driving modes in the mud, snow, and sand. Because of the low range capability, the Quadra-Trac II System is even better off-road.
The Quadra-Trac II is only available on the Trailhawk, it makes it “Trail Rated Tough” thanks to its available electronic rear limited-slip differential for off-road traction and capability. The Quadra-Trac Active on Demand 4WD is the standard 4×4 system on the Trackhawk and SRT.
