Wife is looking at the 2019 Grand Cherokee. I know a lot of you follow Jeep other than Wrangler so curious if anyone has any feedback positive or negative. Looking at the High Altitude version with the 3.6 Liter V6 24-Valve VVT Engine and the Quadra-Drive II 4WD system.

Thanks for any input!

We have a 2014 and have been very pleased with it. It is great for snow and a little bit of off-road, but nothing compared to the Wrangler. It is a Mercedes so I wonder when the maintenance bills will start piling up. So far at 50k it has been pretty good.

I've driven a large number of GSA GC's since around 2014 ranging from the high country out west down to the Southeast, and back again. I've never had a problem with any of them. Say what you will about the 3.6, but it's always been a pleasure to drive with a nice torque curve that reminds me of a v8. If my wife ever gets another vehicle, the GC is probably what it's going to be.

Side anecdote, I used one in South Dakota on Pine Ridge Reservation that I dubbed "Uncle Jesse". This bastard and I killed 18 birds, we nearly got taken out by a stray/wild horse on the road, and had so many bugs stuck to it that it it smelled like death. I drove that thing nearly 250 miles every day for a month, and the only thing it ever needed was gas, oil changes and a bath. It was fantastic! We saw a lot together and I would have bought it in an auction in a heartbeat.
