New for 2016, the speed-sensitive electronic power steering system includes three selectable drive modes (comfort, normal and sport) for customized steering response.
Get legendary Jeep® vehicle capability with the available Selec-Terrain® traction control system, including five modes to tackle all kinds of wet and slushy weather conditions. Traction is also enhanced through the available Quadra-Trac II® or Quadra-Drive® 4x4 systems. Take it to another level with the available Quadra-Lift® air suspension system features five height settings for optimum ride performance.
This revolutionary system gives you ultimate control of your suspension by raising your vehicle's ground clearance up to a maximum of 10.8 inches higher. You can also lower it 1 inch for easy entry, exit and loading. The system will raise the vehicle from back to front to help keep headlights focused down on the road.
Eco Mode helps improve fuel economy by adjusting the transmission shift schedule, idle speed, interactive deceleration fuel shut off and, in V8 engine models, Fuel Saver cylinder deactivation. Automatically engaged upon vehicle startup, it activates the Quadra-Lift® air suspension system and lowers it when the vehicle speed exceeds 55 mph. On 4WD models in 4H, it alters the front-to-rear torque split to increase efficiency.
All trim levels of the 2016 Grand Cherokee have a premium look and are readily identifiable at a glance. The ruggedly good-looking and muscular exterior profile of the 2016 Grand Cherokee is engineered with a style and elegance that’s backed by the confidence of its all-weather capability and Jeep® brand strength.

Enjoy Automatic High-Beam Control Headlamps (with bi-xenon High-Intensity Discharge lighting), signature LED daytime running lamps, premium fog lamps and headlamp washers. These headlamps automatically adjust from high- to low-beam based on the available ambient light and the light from oncoming traffic.
The 2016 Grand Cherokee comes standard with seating for up to five passengers. The available premium-quality Natura Plus leather trim is soft and supple and has outstanding breathability that makes the leather trim comfortable in both hot and cold weather. Adding to the luxury and comfort are heated/ventilated front seats and heated rear seats.
There are three available audio systems for the 2016 Grand Cherokee:
Keep your second-row passengers happy with the available dual-screen Blu-ray™ DVD Entertainment System. The dual 9-inch screens allow your passengers the freedom to customize their entertainment.
The 2016 Grand Cherokee comes with a customer-configurable seven-inch multiview display with leading-edge TFT technology that lets you tailor your personal settings and graphics. Detailed navigation and media information such as song, artist and station is integrated into the advanced, color-coordinated cluster, so you'll be able to view: a full-speed gauge, Navigation system, available Selec-Terrain® system, available Quadra-Lift® suspension system and more.
The ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera with the ParkSense® Front and Rear Park Assist System helps you park and back out with ease. A rearview video image with dynamic grid lines is displayed when the vehicle is shifted into reverse. These available systems help bring previously hidden front and rear objects to your attention and also provide you with an audible warning, giving you time to react.
This Remote Keyless Entry system lets you lock/unlock doors or the available power liftgate from up to 50 feet away. A Sentry Key® antitheft engine immobilizer also makes it virtually impossible for anyone without a valid key to drive your vehicle. A Remote Start System and Security Alarm System are also available.
The Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) system employs dual radar sensors to check driver blind spots and constantly monitor the space between your Grand Cherokee and other vehicles. When the BSM system detects a vehicle that's too close, the driver is notified with an audible chime and illuminated icons that appear on the exterior mirrors.
The 2016 Grand Cherokee comes standard with advanced, multistage driver and front-passenger airbags and supplemental side-curtain airbags. Standard crush zones in the front of the vehicle and side guard door beams (integrated into the design) also help absorb excess energy and decrease its transfer to occupants.
