Jeep Grand Cherokee 2022
Is this a good family SUV to consider (if budget permits)? Mainly worried about its maintenance/service costs. Much helpful if anyone owning this can throw some feedback.

Only thing I would avoid it because gas is expensive. I see no reason to avoid it. The new one looks nice with the short grill.nowhere2010 wrote: ↑ thanks. Any idea why someone should avoid Grand cherokee? i am trying to just understand its Pros & cons

I don't think there is a Durango anymore. I think it was intended for the Grand Cherokee L to replace it as the Jeep brand sells better for SUVs.Bevatron wrote: ↑ I have had a Grand Cherokee for 4 years and have been very happy with it.
Powertrains are proven and carry over into new model. ZF 8 speed transmissions are the best. Infotainment is easy to use and responsive.
If you need 7 seats and plan to keep a long time you could look at the Durango which you are more likely to get a deal on and is also proven. Its essentially a stretched Grand Cherokee and specs have improved over the years. Citadel is top of the line model for Durango.
Grand Cherokee L will hold its value better as it is a new model. However most vehicles that consume above average amounts of gas could drop more in value as people tune into electric vehicles and more models come on stream including SUVs.

There definitely still is a Durango, up to/including the SRT 392 model. The only one that is gone is the SRT Hellcat one which carried the same engine as, well, the Hellcats, along with the Trackhawk. That one only lasted like 1-2 model years though as the emissions regs that came the next year eliminated it.Gutty96 wrote: ↑ I don't think there is a Durango anymore.

We have a 2020 LimitedX, and love it. IF you need 7 seats, I would recommend looking a the lower trims of the Wagoneer. Probably not much more than the top trims of the L, but much more vehicle.

If anything you should thank the Fiat ownership. I remember when this was still under Daimler, quite a few of them were built really badly, this was the time when documented by a local Fox news crew actually followed some workers and saw them getting drunk and high only to return to the plant...drunk and high. News crews were only there to cover Obama's speech there. I could go on for days telling everyone about every single incident I saw with Daimler Chrysler vehicles because they'd fail that quickly, had they continued those bad practices post bankruptcy we'd still be talking about constant reliability problems in Chryslers which amazingly seem to be at least manageable. Those Daimler Chrysler days were bad, seems weird that its the Italians that made the German stuff work better...usually its the other way around.
