2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Grand Cherokee's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Jeep, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Grand Cherokee’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee to maintain its performance power. Follow Jeep's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
