All come equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission; rear-wheel drive is also standard, but drivers have three available four-wheel drive systems to choose from, if optimal handling is desired. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo comes with standard 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlamps, cruise control, foglights, keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone temperature control, Bluetooth, six speakers, a five-inch touchscreen and USB and auxiliary audio input jacks.
