February 8, 2024,  Auburn Hills, Mich. - The Jeep® Grand Cherokee is the winner of Best Midsize Utility vehicle in the 2024 MotorWeek Drivers' Choice Awards, earning the honor for the second consecutive year. 

“The Jeep Grand Cherokee is our back-to-back winner as Best Midsize Utility of the year,” said John Davis, creator and host of MotorWeek. “We are convinced that the Grand Cherokee lineup can handle just about anything adventure-loving families can throw at it! After existing for decades as a rough-around-the-edges, take-it-or-leave-it SUV, 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. That PHEV Grand Cherokee is not only proving to be very popular, but it adds serious breath to Jeep’s already substantial environmental posture. For a brand that survived on tradition for many years, the Grand Cherokee makes a truly modern statement by all measures.”

Now in its 43rd season as TV's and digital media's original automotive magazine series, MotorWeek holds the annual Drivers’ Choice competition to evaluate vehicles based on driving performance, technology, practicality, fuel efficiency and value. 

“To have MotorWeek recognize the Jeep Grand Cherokee as Best Midsize Utility for the second-straight year as part of its prestigious 2024 MotorWeek Drivers' Choice Awards is especially rewarding as it gives third-party validation that we’re delivering the best, most capable and most awarded SUV ever to our customers,” said William Peffer, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. 

The Jeep Grand Cherokee’s 4xe plug-in hybrid electric vehicle technology enhances the fun, freedom and adventure that the Jeep brand is known for, while providing unprecedented performance, fuel economy and environmental friendliness:
