The 1998 model year features the arrival of some significant muscle to back the top-end Jeep Grand Cherokee. Proving to be the largest displacement powerplant ever dropped into the Grand Cherokee, a 245-horsepower 5.9-liter V-8 engine is added to the premium sport utility vehicle creating the 5.9 Limited. Billed as a high-performance luxury sport utility, the 1998 Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited is outfitted with strengthened performance hardware but also features a standard 10-speaker Infinity stereo system. Receiving exterior and interior styling updates in 1997, two-door and four-door Jeep Cherokee sport utility vehicles continue to be an affordable choice for 1998. The Jeep Cherokee's popularity remains strong amongst the law enforcement community.
