Jeep® Grand Cherokee is the Best SUV of 2023, according to Cars.com in its inaugural Best SUV of 2023 award. The editors of Cars.com evaluated all SUVs available in the U.S. to determine which model demonstrates the best combination of capability, versatility and value, selecting the expanded Grand Cherokee family as the best of the best.
The award applies to the entire 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup, including the two-row Grand Cherokee, three-row Grand Cherokee L and plug-in hybrid Grand Cherokee 4xe, which delivers 56 MPGe, 25 miles all-electric range and 470-mile total range with no range anxiety.
“There’s a Jeep Grand Cherokee for everyone, which is why it’s Cars.com’s first-ever Best SUV of 2023,” says Jenni Newman, Cars.com editor-in-chief. “Two or three rows; V-6, V-8 or plug-in hybrid; three different four-wheel-drive systems — variety is just the start of the Grand Cherokee’s strength. With the Grand Cherokee, Grand Cherokee L and Grand Cherokee 4xe, there’s one for every lifestyle, taste and budget.”
This fifth-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee builds on its legacy as the most awarded SUV ever, built around a purpose-built, flexible architecture, available plug-in hybrid powertrain, striking exterior design and refined interior with world-class craftsmanship and first-to-market technologies. The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the most technologically advanced and 4×4-capable Jeep Grand Cherokee yet.
The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup has been designed and engineered to deliver even more of what has made the Grand Cherokee a true global icon in the premium SUV segment, including legendary capability, class-leading space and versatility and advanced safety features.
“We’re proud that the two-row Jeep Grand Cherokee, three-row Grand Cherokee L and electrified Grand Cherokee 4xe represent the best SUV lineup,” said Jim Morrison, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. “In terms of 4×4 capability, two- and three-row versatility, a plug-in model that delivers 25 miles of all-electric range and 56 MPGe with no range anxiety and value that speaks to both new and return customers, the Grand Cherokee stands alone at the top of the mountain. It’s rewarding to know that Cars.com feels the same.”
The new Grand Cherokee is the first to offer 4xe plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) and three-row variants. The Grand Cherokee 4xe signals the continued growth of the Jeep brand’s electrified mission of Zero Emission Freedom, enhancing the fun, freedom and adventure that the Jeep brand is known for, while providing unprecedented performance, fuel economy and environmental friendliness. The first-ever three-row Grand Cherokee L debuted for the 2021 model year to meet the growing needs of Jeep customers who asked for more space and functionality.
