Chrysler Capital Test Drive: Jeep® Grand Cherokee

When it comes to car buying, the areas we live in can have a great influence on the vehicle we drive.

There are rides that may be better suited for rougher terrain, while others are meant to stay on just the highway. But then there comes a select few that fit in any environment and can adapt to any situation.

After having a first-hand experience, I feel that the 2019 Jeep® Grand Cherokee Upland is one of those vehicles.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Test Drive


Cool features, great capabilities and a smooth riding experience made this one of my favorite test drives to date.


Jeep Grand Cherokee Apple CarPlay

It was a treat to plug my iPhone® in and essentially see my home screen come up through the available Apple CarPlayTM1. The seven-inch Uconnect® screen provided a clear picture, displaying my phone’s data conveniently and easily accessible.

The display screen also provided a clear picture whenever I needed to use the available rear-view camera for backing out2. Overall, the multiple features allowed me to make any changes I needed.

One of the aspects I found most impressive in the Jeep Grand Cherokee was how the vehicle combined the comfort and space of a family vehicle with the off-road capabilities that have defined the Jeep brand such as the Jeep Wrangler.

The available 4X4 earned a Trail Rated® badge, signifying its versatility to face multiple terrains and environments. During the drive, the Jeep Grand Cherokee felt like it breezed over the highway, as if it were waiting for a bigger and better challenge.

To be honest, I was outright bummed when my test drive came to an end. Quiet and calm filled the interior while driving the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Acceleration and higher speeds felt effortless for the crossover vehicle making for a relaxing and seamless ride.

The build of the Grand Cherokee helps you feel comfortable and in control behind the wheel, ideal for a road trip. The easiness of the drive and many capabilities make the Jeep Grand Cherokee an ideal fit in almost any region.
