Jeep Grand Cherokee Interior
Reviewers say that the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has one of the nicest interiors you’ll find in the class. One test driver says that even the base Grand Cherokee offers a quality cabin, while another writes that his test SUV was as well-equipped as a Range Rover.
- "Overall, the Grand Cherokee has one of the nicest interiors in its class." -- Edmunds
- "Subjectively, the Grand Cherokee is comfortable and quiet, and the interior of the topline Summit trim is nearly too good for something expecting to see muddy boots on a regular basis." -- Motor Trend
- "These are seriously nice trucks, even in base Laredo trim, raising the benchmark for affordable SUV interiors yet again." -- Cars.com
- "In fact, the interior of the Grand Cherokee sported all the luxury and comfort I would expect of a Range Rover. The dashboard was covered in leather, colored in Jeep Brown. The wood trim, with its matte finish, felt grainy and natural." -- CNET
The Grand Cherokee seats five, and reviewers say that it features a spacious interior with comfortable front and rear seats. Cloth upholstery comes standard on the Laredo trim, while available features include a power-adjustable driver’s seat, leather seats, heated front and rear seats, ventilated front seats and a heated steering wheel.
- "Backseat passengers should be pretty comfortable, as the Grand Cherokee offers up considerably more rear legroom than the Toyota 4Runner." -- Edmunds
- "The seats are all-day comfortable, front and rear, available in top-quality premium leather, with more optional stitched leather covering the dash in higher trims." -- Cars.com
- "The front seat boasts ample headroom and legroom for 6-foot occupants. The seats are wide, comfortable, and supportive, and the passenger side has power adjustment." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
- "Even though the new SRT front seats are roughly the size of living room recliners, backseat passengers have nearly as much space as front-seat occupants." -- Motor Trend (SRT8, 2012)
The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee comes with dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry with push-button start and Jeep’s Uconnect infotainment system, which includes a six-speaker stereo, a USB port, Bluetooth, an SD card slot and a 5-inch touch-screen display. Options and features available on higher trims include a sunroof, satellite radio, navigation, a Harman Kardon audio system, HD Radio, a rear-seat Blu-ray entertainment system and an upgraded version of Uconnect, which includes a larger 8.4-inch touch-screen display.
Test drivers say that the Grand Cherokee’s Uconnect infotainment system is one of the best on the market, with a large screen, quick operation and logical, user-friendly on-screen menus. Additionally, one reviewer says that the Grand Cherokee’s climate controls are easy to use.
- "Jeep redid the center stack, not changing its essential contours but reworking the acreage to fit the corporate 5.0- or 8.4-inch touch screens and an HVAC control area with large knobs – bucking the capacitive-touch trend – that work quickly and simply with minimal eye time from the road." -- Car and Driver
- "We also like the center-mounted 8.4-inch touchscreen that's standard in all Grand Cherokees, except the Laredo. It features an easy-to-use interface and includes a WiFi hotspot and smartphone app integration, including media apps from Pandora and iHeartRadio." -- Edmunds
- "… gone is the old, unloved touch-screen system, and in its place is the Chrysler family Uconnect 8.4-inch touch-screen that has won our praise in other applications like the Dodge Dart (see an evaluation) and Charger. It remains one of the best systems on the market: big, easy to use, quick and uncomplicated. This is how to do in-vehicle connectivity right." -- Cars.com
- "I particularly like that the touch-screen interface for the cabin tech works so well, yet is so simple. Other automakers could really take a lesson from Jeep in this regard." -- CNET
The Grand Cherokee offers 36.3 cubic feet of cargo space, which expands to 68.3 cubic feet if you fold the second row. Three-row SUVs like the Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Explorer and Honda Pilot offer more overall cargo space, but some reviewers say that the Grand Cherokee still has a useful amount of room.
- "Regarding storage, the Jeep Grand Cherokee can swallow 68.7 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seats folded, while offering 35.1 cubes with the seats upright (both figures are on par with the Ford Edge and VW Touareg, but considerably less than Toyota's 4Runner)." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Checking the spec sheet, I saw that the Grand Cherokee comes in well under 16 feet long, yet accentuates its five-passenger seating with healthy amount of cargo space." -- CNET
- "The cargo area's space is OK by absolute standards, but just falls short of the class average. Still, Grand Cherokee has plenty of room for suitcases or grocery bags behind the split rear seat." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
- "Behind the rear seats is 35 cubic feet of cargo space, while folding the seats flat yields about 69 cubic feet -- about the same as a Ford Edge but less than an Explorer or Pilot." -- Edmunds (2013)
