2016 vs. 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee: What's the Difference?

The addition of the Trailhawk model is the major difference you'll notice between the 2016 and the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Designed especially for off-roading, the Trailhawk sports the Quadra-Drive II 4-wheel-drive system. It has hill-ascent and hill-descent control, Kevlar-reinforced off-road tires, an 8.4-inch touchscreen that gives suspension readings, and skid plates. The black leather interior is just the icing on the cake. The Trailhawk clears the ground up to 10.8 inches, thanks to the Quadra-Lift air suspension that also enhances the wheel articulation.

Other changes across the trim levels include Laguna and Nappa leather in the Summit, the luxury trim, which also rides on 20-inch polished alloy wheels. Standard across all trim levels is a rearview camera with rear obstacle detection. The Laredo received an upgraded front grille.

How the Jeep Grand Cherokee Has Evolved

In 1992, the very first production sport-utility vehicle in the United States was the Jeep Grand Cherokee. First appearing as the Jeep Concept 1 in 1989, the debut 1993 model was named the Grand Cherokee ZJ. The Grand Cherokee has evolved through four generations to the SUV we know today. In 1995, the Orvis edition came out with leather seats that gave it a premium feel, a woody green exterior, and QuadraTrac four-wheel drive. Four-wheel disc brakes became standard that year. Dual airbags were added in 1996, along with more luxury features. The Dodge Ram's 5.9-liter V8 became available in the Grand Cherokee in 1998.

The second-generation Grand Cherokee began in 1999 with a longer, wider, taller body and redesigned suspension. It also sported a new 4.7-liter V8 and Quadra-Drive four-wheel-drive system. Jeep celebrated its 60th anniversary with a special-edition Grand Cherokee in 2001. In 2002, Jeep added the Laredo Sport. However, it only lasted that one year. The 2004 models were the end of the second generation. Several special editions were released that year, including the Freedom Edition, Columbia Edition, and the Mountain Edition.

Grand Cherokee's third generation came out in 2005, offering buyers three engines from which to choose: the 3.7-liter, 4.7-liter V8, and 5.7-liter V8. Rack-and-pinion steering was a first that year, as was an independent front suspension. Bumping up the entertainment, a rear-seat DVD player was added. The SRT8 model debuted in 2006. In 2007, a 3-liter V6 diesel engine was offered. A backup camera was available that year, as well.
