Jeep Grand Cherokee 2019
Carsguide Senior Journalist Richard Berry had this to say at the time: Your choice of large SUVs has never been better. There are those which are more or less people-movers, such as the Mazda CX-8, and those which are hardcore off-roaders like the Toyota Fortuner. And then somewhere in between is the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk. Having only five seats is a downside, but those tough American looks, decent off-road capability and its V6 diesel grunt and great towing ability make the Trailhawk very appealing.You can read the full review here.
This is what Richard Berry liked most about this particular version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee: Tough looks, Plush but robust interior, Off-road capability
The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee carries a braked towing capacity of up to 3500 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

Jeep Grand Cherokee 2019 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Jeep Grand Cherokee 2019 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
I am having issues with my Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 2019. Do you have any advice on who is responsible to pay for the lease repair payments under warranty?
There are two issues here. The first is that you’re paying a lease on a vehicle that isn’t functioning right now. There’s not much that anybody can do about that and it’s not really anybody’s fault. The disaster that is current global supply chains has meant that freight out of the United States is either moving at snail’s pace or not moving at all. Many Australians are waiting for bits and pieces from North America, all of which seem to be stranded on the dock in the US. Perhaps you could talk to your finance company about some interest-rate relief, but based on past experience, I wouldn’t be holding my breath there. And since it’s not Jeep’s fault that global trade is in such a state right now, I don’t think you’d do much good there, either. Nor is this a Jeep-specific problem; many car brands are having trouble sourcing repair and service parts.
As for the vehicle being replaced, on the face of it, I doubt that you have much of a case. If Jeep refuses to or cannot repair the vehicle, then you’d have grounds for a refund or replacement, but if Jeep believes that replacing the engine will fix the problem, then consumer law allows for that to happen.
The chances of the same vehicle having two engine failures seems pretty slim, so I wouldn’t be worried about it happening again. Don’t forget that there are any number of reasons (fuel pump, sensor, electrical problem, fuse, relay and a thousand more) for an engine to stop virtually in its tracks. Again, this is not a Jeep thing; all car-makers have experienced engines that for whatever reason have simple spluttered to a stop, often at speed on the highway.
When that happens, of course, you can lose the assistance to the power-steering and the braking system which is what your wife is concerned about. But it’s probably worth explaining that even though she would have to wrench the steering wheel with lots of muscle and really stomp on the brake pedal, even if the engine stops, she would still have brakes and steering. They just won’t be power-assisted. And even if she doesn’t think she’d be able to turn the wheel if that happened, adrenalin is a very powerful force on its own in such situations. And, again, the same thing could happen in any make or model of car.Show more
Does the Jeep Grand Cherokee have product quality issues?
Remember Jeep has gone through a huge change in ownership following Fiat’s buyout of the company from Daimler. There have certainly been quality issues since Fiat took over, but they don’t appear to be as frequent now as they were.Show more
What towing vehicle should I buy?
What's the best car for towing a van?
The Jeeps are perfectly capable of doing the trip you are planning, and if anything did go wrong while you were away there are dealers all around the country who cold fix it for you. At 2000 kg your caravan is not particularly heavy and shouldn’t stress the Jeep at all. The Prado is the other obvious choice, and it too will do the job with ease. Others to look at are the Kia Sorento and Isuzu MU-X.Show more
