In the thrilling world of automotive accolades, the 2024 Jeep® Grand Cherokee (WL) emerges triumphant once again, securing the coveted title of “Best Midsize Utility” vehicle in the 2024 MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Awards. This marks the second year in a row that the Grand Cherokee has claimed the top spot, solidifying its reputation as a standout in its class.
According to John Davis, the brains behind MotorWeek, the Grand Cherokee’s win is well-deserved: “The Jeep Grand Cherokee is our back-to-back winner as Best Midsize Utility of the year… The fifth-generation Grand Cherokee arrived with all kinds of surprises, including an extended L version with three rows of seating, and even an available 4xe plug-in powertrain.”
William Peffer, Head of Jeep® North America, expressed his delight at the recognition, stating, “To have MotorWeek recognize the Jeep Grand Cherokee as Best Midsize Utility for the second-straight year… gives third-party validation that we’re delivering the best, most capable and most awarded SUV ever to our customers.”
So, what sets the Grand Cherokee apart from the competition? It’s all about versatility and innovation.

Plus, with 375 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque under the hood, the Grand Cherokee doesn’t compromise on performance.

With its Quadra-Trac II 4×4 system and a robust towing capacity of up to 6,000 pounds, this SUV is ready to tackle any terrain or towing task with ease. And for those who crave even more adventure, the Trail Rated Grand Cherokee 4xe offers up to 10.9 inches of ground clearance and 24 inches of water fording capability, ensuring nothing stands in its way.
