2011 4dr SUV 360-horsepower 5.7L V8

The MDS Hemi is outstanding. I can cruise at 80mph and knock down 19mpg....at the same time, passing and entering a highway is an easy process with the power available. The towing capabilities are a wonderful plus since I do tow occasionally.
2011 4dr SUV 290-horsepower 3.6L V6

20.6 mpg so far, which is excellent for a 4x4 tow vehicle.

Obviously, the fuel economy is poor. You'll have to compare the Jeep SRT with the German equivalents to figure out just how poor, but suffice to say, you'll be getting less than 12 MPG everywhere you go and buying Super Premium Unleaded on every fill.
2014 4dr SUV 290-horsepower 3.6L V6
8-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range
Poor fuel economy was expected, so it's not a big complaint. Our V6 4x4 Grand Cherokee is rated at 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway. We get about 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. Ourair suspension package came with full-time four wheel drive, which probably doesn't help fuel economy. I would like to get at least 20 mpg in the city, but perhaps I will shell out the additional $4500 for the diesel engine next time, or maybe there will eventually be a hybrid option.

Its a SUV with a V8. If you need gas mileage numbers look elsewhere. If you need to tow stuff and get to work no matter what the roads are like, your gonna burn some gas.
2007 4dr SUV 235-horsepower 4.7L V8
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range
Fuel economy is abysmal. The 4.7L V-8 engine, only moderately powerful, is far thirstier than the much more powerful 5.7L Hemi option owing to the Hemi's cylinder deactivation. Real-world fuel economy in city driving is 11-13MPG. On longer trips it can occasionally see 20MPG if speeds are kept below 70MPH. The 4.7L drivetrain is a compromise between the V-6 and the Hemi versions in terms of cost, with the added capability of being able to operate on E-85 fuel when properly equipped. You will undoubtedly want to go with the Hemi version instead of the 4.7L if you can afford it, the benefits are more than just the extra power. If you are familiar with the performance of the 4.7L in the older WJ models, prepare to be disappointed by the performance in the 2005-2010 WK models: they weigh 600 pounds more, and you can definitely feel the difference. Do not buy ANY Jeep Grand Cherokee if you are a budget-conscious big city commuter; you have to accept the fuel economy as the trade off for uncompromised traction in poor weather conditions. This machine has a "real" 4 wheel drive system: it's always on, it's always ready to step in when the going gets slippery, and provided the tires are good enough it will plow snow with its front bumper. A V-6 version only gets marginally better fuel economy but with a significant decrease in power. In truth, if you're worried about fuel economy, you should be looking at the car-based Jeep Compass or Patriot models, not the Grand Cherokee.

Diesel makes the extra weight of an SUV tolerable. In 4 months of use I've been getting high teens around town and 29 cruising on the highway at 70-75. Slowing down to 60-65 puts mpg just over 30.

I do not have a heavy foot and the V6 gas version gets only about 19-21 on HWY at 60 MPH opposed to 24-27 with a X5. I drove 700 mi (interstate) and averaged only 19 @ 70 mph. Not good!
2008 4dr SUV 350-horsepower 4.2L V8

Very poor. The V6 gets barely 18 and the V8 gets 17mpg of PREMIUM. But then again you buys knowing, still disappointing.
2006 4dr SUV 310-horsepower 4.2L V8

This car gets 14.7 city and 17.5 HWY. On Premium Fuel. But we pay the price for the speed, comfort, and security of the Touareg.

14-15 mpg in todays market is not very good for an SUV with a V6.
