2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Indian Head and Melville drivers enjoy the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee towing abilities, which are best-in-class thanks to its four powerhouse engines. Standard and available features ensure that even the heaviest loads are kept in check, so this is the full-sized SUV that you need to tow hefty items out into the backcountry.

Engine Options

The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee packs one of four state-of-the-art engines beneath the hood. Indian Head and Melville drivers will be able to choose from:

  • 3.0L EcoDiesel V6: Generates up to 240 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, and even offers a class-leading 8.4 L/100 km on the highway and 11.2 L/100 km in the city.
  • 3.6L Pentastar V6: This multi-award-winner makes up to 295 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque.
  • 5.7L VVT V8: Stepping up to V8 power results in 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque.
  • 6.4L SRT HEMI V8: The SRT provides a class-leading 475 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, enough to make 0 to 100 km/h in under 5 seconds.

An 8-speed automatic transmission comes as standard with each engine, allowing for smaller steps between gears compared to traditional 5- or 6-speed alternatives. That means outstanding acceleration and the ability to control larger towing loads across rough terrain without breaking a sweat.


The unrivaled power of the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee naturally results in towing capabilities that cannot be equaled within the SUV segment, with the vehicle boasting a best-in-class 3,265-kg towing capacity with the 6.4L SRT HEMI V8, 5.7L VVT V8, or 3.0L EcoDiesel V6. Even the 3.6L Pentastar outperforms comparable engines with a best-in-class V6 tow rating of up to 2,812 kg.

Whether you need to haul a caravan or a boat, the Grand Cherokee can deliver, and it even equips Trailer Sway Control to ensure total peace of mind.
