Expert Quotes:

16 mpg city, 23 highway for the base 2WD model; 16/22 with V-6/4WD; 14/20 with V-8/2WD; 13/19 with V-8/4WD
U.S. EPA

With our admittedly heavy right foot, we saw an average of 18 mpg in mixed driving.
Winding Road




Going primarily by fuel consumption, as we do here at High Gear Media, the all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee is significantly greener than last year's model--if you choose the new 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6, that is. At a high of 16 mpg city, 23 highway with 2WD, the 2011 Grand Cherokee with the base engine gets 2 mpg better than the outgoing Grand Cherokee, though fuel economy with the Hemi V-8 is unchanged.

That said, most large V-6 crossover vehicles--some of them with three rows of seating--have fuel economy ratings that are a mile or two per gallon better than the Grand Cherokee. The reason? The Grand Cherokee's somewhat older-tech five-speed automatic might be part of it, as might be its more portly weight, near 5,000 pounds--perhaps the price of rugged off-road ability. 

 

Conclusion

The HEMI returns thirsty, and with only a five-speed transmission, the Grand Cherokee's no fuel-sipper.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
