The 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee can be outfitted as a luxury family shuttle or a serious off-roader, depending on models and options.

The Grand Cherokee Jeep comes in four trims, starting with the base-level Laredo, which Car and Driver calls "simple and clean." The Laredo is well equipped, with "standard anti-lock brakes, stability control, and head-curtain airbags, plus "an eight-way power driver's seat...power windows, locks, and mirrors," says Kelley Blue Book.

The Limited and Overland editions, Car and Driver adds, have "more ornate treatments, including body-colored cladding, fancier wheels and more bright-work." The Limited 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Editions have dual-zone climate control--"a distinct improvement for passengers," says Edmunds. A leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather seats with touch control, and memory for the power driver's seat and mirrors are welcome additions to luxury amenities.

The performance-oriented Grand Cherokee Jeep SRT8 has numerous options packages, such as heated second-row seats and a sunroof (for sun worshippers, and those who like to feel the wind in their hair). Jalopnik enjoys the premium amenities--the "heated seats...[and] auto-leveling headlamps"--and says this 2008 Jeep "offers a refreshed interior and exterior design and a host of innovative premium amenities" with many trim options, plus Sirius Backseat TV and satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, and a navigation system.

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.
