Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo reviews tend to praise the model's cabin equipment, particularly its dual-zone climate control, digital instrument cluster and six-speaker audio system. Jeep Grand Cherokees generally perform well on performance tests and offer a balance between low price and luxury features.
Kelley Blue Book notes that the four engine options the Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo is compatible with offer potential buyers a wide variety of options related to their performance and handling expectations. Buyers can choose to install a 3.6-liter V-6 engine, a 5.7-liter V-8 engine, a 3.0-liter V-6 diesel engine or a 6.4-liter V-8 engine that offers the maximum performance while sacrificing fuel economy. Kelley Blue Book also praises the eight-speed automatic transmission that comes with every Jeep Grand Cherokee trim.
The Car Connection notes that the strength of the Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo trim lies in its attractive exterior and the completeness of its interior cockpit. Despite being a basic model, the interior cabin is richly furnished, providing drivers with an attractive, functional layout. The review also notes that the Grand Cherokee's off-road performance is remarkable, but it mentions that only the more advanced versions should be trusted to climb over boulders and logs in an outdoor environment.
