After a decade with nearly the same design, the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee ushered in a new generation. As a two-row model, this lineup is said to be “reengineered for the future.” However, the redesign seems to have a profoundly negative effect on the structure and engine, leaving customers desiring more.

Problems with the Engine

As time goes on, the engine complaints are only going to become more profound. For now, it’s simple to see what people think just by looking at auto publications.

In fact, the respected Car and Driver keeps it short and to the point by saying the new Grand Cherokee contains a “thirsty optional V-8.”

For families looking to travel with rising gas prices, this doesn’t seem to be a good way to win customers. If anything, it’s a great way to scare customers away from the brand entirely. Maybe Jeep has had enough of making the Grand Cherokee, so the designers “reengineered” it so it would cease being popular.

Problems with the Vehicle Structure

Looking at how a car is built can tell a customer a lot about what to expect. Sadly, there’s little to boast about with the new Grand Cherokee.

Even the respected publication, U.S. News & World Report, had this to say about the interior space. “You can say this Jeep’s cargo capacity is decent or bad, depending on how you want to look at it. It provides 37.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats and 70.8 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down.”

The review went further to discuss how poorly the SUV performed in crash test ratings. Here are some of the comments listed in the previous review. “The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee an overall safety rating of four out of five stars for RWD models and five out of five stars for 4WD models. In both setups, the Grand Cherokee received four stars in the frontal crash test and five stars in the side crash test. In the rollover test, the RWD model received three stars, while the 4WD model received four stars.”

This doesn’t sound like the type of vehicle anyone wants to drive the family around in. Not only does it lack cargo space, but it’s done terribly in crash test ratings. Who put together this new design? It doesn’t appear that they understand the basics of building a family-friendly SUV model. Maybe it’s time that it gets “reengineered for the future” once again.

    I just had my 2018 Jeep Gran Cherokee’s transmission fail at 134,000 miles. My 2012 went 275,000 miles with no issue. Now the dealership where I get my work done says it needs a new transmission, roughly $6,500 but that they can’t get a transmission until the end of March ’22. This is BS.
