If you’ve decided on the purchase or lease of a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee, congratulations! You’re making a great decision. The Grand Cherokee is a great option if you are looking for a feature-rich interior combined with legendary Jeep off-road capability.

Three Great 2018 Grand Cherokee Trims To Choose From

You might be wondering, however, with so many trim options to choose from, which is the right 2018 Grand Cherokee model for you. The good news here is that Safford CDJR of Salisbury has done the homework for you and compared three of the most popular trim levels within the 2018 Grand Cherokee lineup: Laredo, Altitude, and Limited.

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

While calling any Grand Cherokee trim “base” seems borderline criminal considering all the amazing standard features you get, the Laredo could be characterized as the most basic trim in the lineup. It’s also the most cost-effective trim you can go with. Does that mean you get shorted on features and value? Absolutely not.

Here’s a sampling of the features you’ll enjoy on the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited:

  • Heated Front/Rear Seats
  • Heated Steering Wheel
  • Power Liftgate
  • Remote Vehicle Start
  • 6L Pentastar® V6 Engine
  • Leather Trimmed Seating
  • 7-inch Touchscreen w/UConnect® 4 system
  • Apple CarPlay/Android Auto Support

Here’s the thing about the 2018 Grand Cherokee Limited trim, many of these standard features will cost you extra on competing make/model vehicles. That’s not even taking into account all the other amazing premium features available on the 2018 Grand Cherokee Limited.

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude

As we move on to the 2018 Grand Cherokee Altitude trim, you’re probably wondering what the primary difference is between this and the Limited trim. For starters, yes, the Altitude is going to cost you a bit more than the Limited. What you get for that extra money, however, is more than worth it. The Altitude comes standard with additional exterior features such as:

  • 20-inch Gloss Black Aluminum Wheels
  • Gloss Black Accents on Badging
  • Lower Front Fascia Applique
  • Grille/Fog Lamp Bezels

Think of the Altitude as the Limited with more exterior enhancements. Rest assured, however, that the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude also comes packed with interior refinement with standard features like:

  • Heated Leather Wrapped Steering Wheel
  • Heated Front Seats
  • Power Liftgate
  • Remote Vehicle Start System
  • 4-inch Touchscreen w/UConnect® 4C Nav system
  • Apple CarPlay/Android Auto Support

If you’re looking for a great value on one of the upper-level trims in the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup, the Altitude is a great choice.

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited

The 2018 Grand Cherokee Limited sits above the Altitude trim with just a modest increase in price. It differentiates itself from the Altitude primarily with its long list of available options and features not available on the Altitude or Laredo models. Those available features include:

  • Quadra-Trac II® 4×4 System with Selec-Terrain and Hill Descent Control
  • Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection

In addition to these available features, the 2018 Grand Cherokee Limited also comes with standard equipment like:

  • 18-inch Polished Aluminum Wheels w/Technical Gray Painted Pockets
  • Heated Leather Trimmed Seats
  • 7-inch Touchscreen w/UConnect® 4 System
  • Apple CarPlay/Android Auto

Again, the big difference between the Limited and the Altitude/Laredo trims is you have the option of upgrading your features.
