Car Profiles - Jeep Grand Cherokee


Receiving a mid-refresh cycle this year, the Grand Cherokee gets a diesel engine while the V8 can be ordered upon request. It rides smoothly but you can only hitch four friends and a little amount of cargo. Go elsewhere if you need that required third row.

The Good: Now with a diesel engine
The Bad: No third row bench

Price Range: P3,720,000-P3,860,000
