The Jeep Grand Cherokee has an above average boot space (809 litres of luggage with the seats up).
This would allow one pushchair and 5 large bags. Alternatively you could load up with 6 large bags or 6 cabin bags instead.
Worth knowing, the Land Rover Discovery SUV is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and 6 large bags with its 889 litres.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is very middle of the road - it fills 81% of a space. There are lots of wider cars, but just as many that are narrower and feel easier to park. For example, the Mitsubishi Shogun.
This car is actually 28mm longer than the average street space, so parallel parking will never be easy.
The fastest Jeep Grand Cherokee from 0-60, is the 3.0L diesel (if you’re a petrol head, it has 550 lbs/ft torque and 237 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 8.2 seconds.
The closest rival in its class is the Audi Q7 3.0L diesel, which will beat your Jeep Grand Cherokee to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.

If you are towing you want good torque to pull away easily despite the extra weight, and the car needs to be at least 15% heavier than the caravan to keep you stable at speed.
The model that can tow the biggest caravan or heaviest trailer is the Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0L diesel which has 550 lbs/ft torque. It should be able to tow a braked caravan or trailer that weighs up to 3500kg comfortably.
You must check your car handbook – maximum towing weights vary considerably with different engine and gearbox combinations.
