3 Reasons You Need to Drive the 2017 Jeep Grand

Jeep has always catered to the adventurer in all of us, and the newest model of the Grand Cherokee continues that tradition. Here’s why you need to drive the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee.


You deserve a vehicle that can handle anything you throw at it. It should perform well no matter what weather or terrain you face. The 2017 Grand Cherokee is Trail Rated Tough, which means that it will drive well in all types of weather and any road condition. The Selec-Terrain Traction Control system features five settings that allow you to tackle various terrains — such as sand and snow — by adjusting vehicle systems like the throttle, accelerator pedal response, and traction control.

Need to haul a trailer up to your campsite? The Grand Cherokee can, when properly equipped, tow up to 7,400 pounds. Plus, the available Quadra-Lift Air Suspension System adjusts the Cherokee’s ground clearance so you can go straight from easy loading to off-roading.


Adventures stop being fun very quickly if someone gets hurt, so your vehicle needs to keep you safe. The 2017 Grand Cherokee has both front and rear crumple zones that absorb crash energy and redirect it away from passengers. A Forward Collision Waning with Active Braking warns the driver of an imminent frontal impact, and if the driver doesn’t react fast enough, the Cherokee will automatically engage the brakes.

In addition to these safety systems, the 2017 Cherokee also includes Electronic Stability Control, Electronic Roll Mitigation, and all-speed traction control.


Jeep will always remember its heritage as an off-road vehicle, but it’s also not afraid of upgrades. The 2017 Grand Cherokee includes the Uconnect infotainment system, which combines features like entertainment, navigation, communication, Bluetooth Streaming Audio, and Voice Command. With these features, you can easily control calls, music, and navigation with your voice and keep your eyes on the road where they belong.

The Cherokee also includes a customizable digital gauge cluster, which integrates navigation and media information as well as traction and Quadra-Lift Suspension settings. You can personalize the graphics and color of the cluster, so every detail of your car fits your needs.

It’s time for you to take a day to explore some off-road driving trails. You’ve been cooped up in the office long enough, and the summer day is just begging to be enjoyed. With the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee, your adventures will be limitless. If you have more questions about the Grand Cherokee or want to see one for yourself, come down to Rairdon CDJ of Kirkland!
