2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

The 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee is an excellent off-road vehicle with a luxurious interior, which is a rare combination in the realm of midsize SUVs. Nonetheless, it still can't match the rear-seat comfort or cargo capacity of others in its class, so if you’re looking for a particularly good family-hauling crossover, you may want to look elsewhere.

Pros & Cons

  • Upscale interior
  • Legendary off-road performance
  • Powerful available V8
  • Sluggish base engine
  • Small cargo capacity for the class
  • Low fuel economy

2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overview

The 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee carries Jeep’s reputation for legendary off-road performance, but includes a much more refined interior than most other off-road vehicles. However, it doesn’t have a third row and its fuel economy is below average for the class. Two engines are available in the Grand Cherokee. The base V6 gets fairly good fuel economy for an off-roader, but test drivers said the base V6 was sluggish and recommended the V8 instead.  

The Grand Cherokee comes standard with a 3.7-liter V6 and rear-wheel drive, though a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine and three different four-wheel drive systems were optional. The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 comes with a 6.1-liter Hemi V8 and standard all-wheel drive. Base trims come standard with a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a six-speaker stereo, satellite radio and electronic stability control. Limited trims add standard navigation, leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel, rearview camera, rear parking sensors and an upgraded audio system.

Other Cars to Consider

If you like the Jeep Grand Cherokee but need three rows of seats, consider the 2011 Dodge Durango. The Durango was discontinued for the 2009 model year, but it roared back onto the market in 2011 with aggressive looks, a particularly upscale interior, great handling and much-improved fuel economy. Its third row is cramped, so it’s not the best if you need to haul adults around in comfort, but test drivers rated the 2011 Dodge Durango highly within its class.

The 2010 Chevrolet Traverse also ranks well for its comfortable ride and adult-sized third row. It has one of the highest cargo capacities in its class, as well as good fuel economy. The Traverse offers better safety ratings than the Grand Cherokee, but it can’t offer nearly the off-road performance that Jeep is known for. If you need to tote up to eight in comfort and don’t need trailblazing capabilities, reviewers said the Chevrolet Traverse is a great choice.
