2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overview

Is the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee a Good Used SUV?

The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a good midsize SUV. It has a luxurious interior, a comfortable ride (regardless of where the road takes you), and a user-friendly infotainment system. It compares favorably against more expensive luxury midsize SUVs.

Used 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Performance and Interior

Each used 2015 Grand Cherokee is paired with one of four engines. The standard power plant is a 290-horsepower V6 with a satisfying amount of power. There are two eight-cylinder motors available, as well as a V6 diesel. For potent performance, the Grand Cherokee SRT comes with a 475-horsepower V8 and four-wheel drive. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard with all engines. Fuel economy with the gas engines ranges from 13 to 17 mpg in the city and 19 to 25 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. There are currently no EPA fuel economy estimates for the diesel engine.

When equipped with one of the three available four-wheel-drive systems, the Grand Cherokee handles well on demanding off-road courses. The Grand Cherokee has a comfortable, quiet ride and composed handling. Its small turning radius makes it easy to maneuver on the street or the trail. If you plan on scrambling over challenging trails, look for a used model with the Quadra-Lift air suspension system to gain extra ground clearance.

The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee has one of the finest interiors in the midsize SUV class. The Grand Cherokee seats five in two rows on standard cloth seats. Some models add luxury-grade niceties like leather upholstery, heated front and rear seats, and ventilated front seats. The 2015 Grand Cherokee has complete sets of LATCH child-seat connectors on the outboard rear seats and a middle-seat tether anchor.

Jeep didn’t skimp on the Grand Cherokee’s amenities. At a minimum, every model comes with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a touch-screen Uconnect infotainment system. The infotainment interface was one of the easiest to use when the Grand Cherokee debuted, and all the cabin controls (both on the screen and off) are convenient and straightforward. The Grand Cherokee’s cargo space is considered small for the midsize SUV segment.

Should I Consider Another Used Grand Cherokee?

The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee is part of the SUV’s fourth generation, which launched for 2011 and includes the 2017 model year. There were no significant changes for 2015, so you might consider a 2014 Grand Cherokee to save some money.

Which Used Jeep Grand Cherokee Is Right for Me?

The 2015 Grand Cherokee comes in six trims: Laredo, Laredo E, Limited, Overland, Summit, and Grand Cherokee SRT.

The Laredo E adds satellite radio and an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat. The Limited has leather-trimmed seats, heated front and rear seats, eight-way power seat adjustments for both front seats, a power liftgate, a rearview camera, and remote start. The Overland is more opulent, offering premium leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, a nine-speaker audio system, an 8.4-inch touch screen, a navigation system with voice recognition, wood trim, and additional steering wheel controls.

The top-level Summit trim features a 19-speaker premium audio system, open-pore wood trim, and active noise cancellation inside the cabin. The high-performance SRT trim includes all the active safety features available for the Grand Cherokee. The Limited provides the best balance of luxury and comfort.

You might consider purchasing a certified pre-owned model. For CPO Jeep vehicles, the original new-car powertrain warranty is extended to seven years or 100,000 miles. CPO vehicles also get a three-month/3,000-mile Maximum Coverage Care warranty. There are restrictions related to mileage and models, so read the Jeep warranty page carefully.

2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Other SUVs to Consider

The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a split personality. Its off-road capabilities are excellent, and its interior is among the most luxurious in the midsize SUV segment. In short, it’s a rugged vehicle that can be driven to an opera.

Which Is Better: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee or 2015 Nissan Murano?

The 2015 Nissan Murano’s interior rivals the Grand Cherokee’s, but it lacks the Jeep’s off-road chops. The Murano also has the best predicted reliability rating among the 2015 midsize SUVs in our rankings. That contrasts with the Grand Cherokee’s below-average predicted reliability. The Murano has slightly more legroom in the first and second rows in comparison to the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Nissan also has slightly higher safety ratings than the Jeep. The Murano is the better choice, but only if you never plan to leave the pavement.

Which Is Better: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee or 2015 Toyota 4Runner?

The 2015 Toyota 4Runner measures up to the Grand Cherokee’s off-road capabilities with standard part-time four-wheel drive, or full-time four-wheel drive in the Limited trim. Some trims will also feature a locking rear differential and better approach and departure angles. Move on road, though, and the Jeep is the better choice. The 4Runner’s interior is utilitarian, and its on-pavement handling lags well behind the Grand Cherokee’s. The only reason to consider the 4Runner might be its slightly above-average predicted reliability rating.
