TheCarConnection.com finds that reviews are generally positive but not enthusiastic about the exterior and interior styling of the 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Completely restyled and reengineered in 2005, the Grand Cherokee has aged reasonably well, and it still looks fit and trim, though its angular shape isn't to everyone's taste. The traditional Jeep seven-bar grille tells onlookers that this SUV is ready for anything. Although the 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee receives relatively few styling changes from last years' models--Cars.com says "casual observers probably won't be able to tell the difference between a 2008 [Jeep] Grand Cherokee and a 2007 model"--reviewers note that the 2008 Jeep has a bolder grille and front fascia.

Kelley Blue Book reports that the recent "makeover gave the Grand Cherokee's handsome lines the straight-edge treatment, leaving the trademark Jeep grille and tail in place." They say that the "flared wheel arches and aggressively styled wheels" lend the Grand Cherokee Jeep the "rugged, off-road look Jeep loyalists demand." Other reviewers agree: The Auto Channel says there's "no mistaking the look of a Jeep with its signature seven-slot grille and dual headlamps." Jalopnik awards kudos to the Grand Cherokee Jeep's "athletic and contemporary appearance."

Inside, the 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s cockpit is pretty well organized. Jalopnik reviewers note the 2008 Jeep has an "updated line of instrument clusters that feature new brighter LED illumination." According to Cars.com interior changes for the 2008 Jeep "are modest and center on the dashboard, door panels and center console." They report that Grand Cherokee Jeep "gauges are new, as are the door armrests and the leather-wrapped parking brake handle" and that the Overland version "gets a wood steering-wheel rim and perforated leather seats with special piping."

Conclusion

The 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee carries the heritage of Jeep intact.

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.
