TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearComment
The #1 reason not to buy the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 could hardly be clearer: even with the engine cruising on only four cylinders, fuel economy is abysmal. The EPA ratings are 12 city, 18 highway (up from 12/16). The trip computer reported between 13 and 14 mpg in casual suburban driving. Go very easy on the gas, and it might crack 15. With a heavy foot, 10 (or worse) happens. (And one reader reports that the trip computer is highly optimistic, and that actual fuel economy is even lower.) see full Jeep Grand Cherokee review

20.6 mpg so far, which is excellent for a 4x4 tow vehicle. see full Jeep Grand Cherokee review

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. see full Jeep Grand Cherokee review
