Which Engine Will You Choose for Your New 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

As you shop for a new 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee, we recommend that you compare the specifications for all the different models available. In doing so, you can ensure that the new Jeep SUV you ultimately buy or lease provides qualities that satisfy you. For instance, depending on the trim level you select, you will gain access to one of three different engines. We go into detail on these three options below.

The 2.4L MultiAir® 2 Tigershark® I-4 Engine

The most basic choice offered for the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the 2.4L MultiAir® 2 Tigershark® I-4. At peak performance, it supplies drivers an output of 180 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. As a standard, it comes with a smooth-shifting nine-speed automatic transmission system as well. Properly equipped with a Jeep Active Drive Lock 4x4 system, it can tow a maximum of 4,028 pounds.

The 3.2L Pentastar® V6 Engine

The 3.2L Pentastar® V6 is a step up from the former and generates a substantial 271 horsepower in addition of 239 pound-feet of torque. With the same transmission and 4x4 system included in the mix, its maximum towing capacity measures out to 4,108 pounds. In other words, this second iteration is a little stronger when put to the test.

The 2.0L Turbo I-4 Engine

Last but not least is the newest engine in the lineup. Included as a new feature for the 2019 cycle, the 2.0L Turbo I-4 provides a nice balance of power and efficiency. With 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, it keeps pace with the V6. Incorporated with dual variable valve timing, it will even get you farther with less stops for refueling, measuring out to 22 highway and 31 city MPG in some cases.

Make Your Decision Based on a Test Drive

As you can see, the experience will differ slightly depending on which components are included with your new 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee. As such, shoppers will want to take a test drive in the various styles now offered at our Jeep dealership in Danvers, Massachusetts. Doing so will make sure that the Jeep SUV you take home performs to your liking.
