Families with three kids who require three car seats for safe travel are faced with a limited amount of vehicle options, especially if they want all three car seats to fit side by side by side. Luckily, the well-equipped, 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee delivers the necessary space and connectors, earning it a spot on U.S. News & World Report’s list, “21 Great Vehicles That Fit 3 Car Seats Across.”

“The Jeep has two full sets of LATCH connectors on the outboard seats of its second row, along with a tether anchor on the middle seat, allowing for three car seats to be installed side by side,” according to U.S. News & World Report writers Eileen Falkenberg-Hull and Liana Madrid. “The Grand Cherokee has 58 inches of second-row shoulder room.”

The 2019 Grand Cherokee earned a U.S. News’ score of 8.4 out of 10.

The midsize SUV is available at 12 trim levels: Laredo, Laredo E, Upland, Altitude, Limited, Limited X, Trailhawk®, Overland, High Altitude, Summit, SRT®, and Trackhawk. The standard 3.6-liter V6 engine paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission delivers 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. For more power, drivers can choose the Grand Cherokee SRT trim, which is equipped with a SRT 6.4-liter HEMI V8 paired to an eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission that generates 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. The highest trim level, the Trackhawk, shakes the ground with a 707 horsepower-rated 6.2-liter Supercharged V8.

Advanced driver assist technology of Blind-Spot and Cross-Path Detection is standard on the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
