Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

Inside the SRT is very similar to that of the standard Grand Cherokee, except for a few little touches to reassure passengers they are in the top-of-the-range version. It does feel a little more special than the standard car and has a more premium finish to it, helped by the more upmarket looking materials that cover the door inlays and dashboard as well as the upgraded SRT seats.

While Jeep has done a reasonable job in terms of fit and finish, it doesn’t quite match up to the likes of the Range Rover Sport or Porsche Cayenne. That said, everything is logically set out and it doesn’t take a master’s degree in quantum physics to work out what buttons do what.

The rather large 20-inch wheels can cause the ride to get skittish on rough roads and can compromise the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT comfort a little. It does tend to deal with larger bumps fairly well though, particularly in Auto mode. Things get more uncomfortable in Sport and Track modes, which are best left alone when driving on standard roads and motorways.

The car’s large size means there is plenty of room for those in the front and the back, while even those in the middle rear seat have plenty of space to stretch out. There’s lots of headroom for all passengers too and even taller occupants should have space to spare, no matter where they sit. The seats are all supportive, with the driver’s seat offering armchair-levels of comfort.

There’s also enough side- and back support to make longer journeys a pleasure rather than a chore.
