How many cylinders is a Jeep Grand Cherokee?

I just got a promotion last month so I’m finally able to afford the big Jeep of my dreams. Since I’ve waited so long for this, I want to make sure my Jeep has plenty of power under its hood. How many cylinders is a Jeep Grand Cherokee?

Congrats on the promotion—and the incoming set of big Jeep wheels!
You actually have three engine options with the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which gives you as many as four, six, or eight cylinders.
Here’s how those engine options break down:
  • 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine (standard)—gets up to 293 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder plug-in hybrid (4xe)—gets up to 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque
  • 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine—gets up to 357 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque
If you’re itching to get that massive V8 engine under your hood, you’ll need to go for at least the Overland trim. The hybrid powertrain is additionally limited to the Trailhawk, Overland, and Summit trim levels.
Choosing to go for a used Jeep Grand Cherokee will get you different engine options, but you can expect a six-cylinder, with eight cylinders also available in almost every model year.
Just note—the bigger your engine, the more you’re likely to spend on both the initial purchase, fuel expenses, and your Jeep Grand Cherokee car insurance.
