There are many good reasons the Jeep Grand Cherokee has been a top-selling SUV model for seemingly forever. Those are the same reasons why this legendary vehicle is also the "Most Awarded SUV Ever", and your local Jeep dealer in Ohio wants to tell you more about it. Since its 1992 launch as a 1993 model, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has racked up numerous awards for its rugged off-road capability, uncompromising safety, luxurious trim levels, and even best-in-class trophies within its mid-size SUV segment. The first-ever Jeep Grand Cherokee even took home the Motor Trend Truck of the Year recognition for 1993, back when truck models and SUV models were not yet segmented by the prestigious automotive publication. It has been quite a ride since then, and now as we approach Year 30, the Jeep Grand Cherokee continues being an American favorite when it comes to the total package in an SUV model. Let's look at some of the timeless attributes of the Jeep Grand Cherokee that have made it the "Most Awarded SUV Ever".

Off-Road Mettle

Have you ever seen too many super-clean Jeep models? Jeep owners love going off-road, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee has been a rough-and-tumble vehicle from the beginning to stay true to the brand's heritage. The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee features available 4x4 layouts like the Quadra-Drive® II system to increase traction. To match varying road conditions, the available Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System can be activated for a variety of topographical challenges. When you visit Tom Ahl Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in search of a Jeep Grand Cherokee or any other Jeep model, look for the Trail Rated® badge, which is a feather in the cap that tells you this vehicle is ready for the outdoors.

Powerful Engines

On top of the standard 4.0L I6 powertrain, the 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee could be outfitted with a more desirable 5.2L Magnum V8 motor. The upgraded engine gave early Jeep Grand Cherokee adopters a stout and - for the time - muscular alternative, and it has been a staple of the powertrain options ever since. The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee checks in with four different engines: the standard 3.6L motor, a 5.7L Hemi V8, a 6.4L V8 for the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, and then the monstrous 6.2L Hellcat supercharged V8 in the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The engines all provide smooth rides and the V6 can even tow up to 6,200 lbs. when properly equipped.

Luxurious Cabin

From Natura Plus to Laguna to Capri to the unbelievably supple Nappa, the leather upholstery trimmings and surfaces on the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee will astound you. The Jeep Grand Cherokee has always given consumers choices between utilitarian and posh interiors, and the quality has been ratcheted up over the years. Luxe cabin features available for the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee include the dual-pane sunroof and the Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System with 19 speakers! 

These are only a handful of reasons to consider the Jeep Grand Cherokee for sale for your next SUV model, and the sales team at your local Jeep dealer in Ohio can expand further when you visit our showroom. We hope to see you soon at Tom Ahl CDJR!
