09/01/2016

Jeep

JeepÂ(R) Grand Cherokee is the most awarded SUV ever and the vehicle that has long defined what a premium SUV should be. A refined exterior design â€" complete with available bi-xenon headlamps with signature LED daytime running lamps (DRL) â€" provides a premium appearance. Grand Cherokee SRT models feature new, distinctive front fascia, grille and fog lamps that build upon the SRT exclusive stealth-like exterior appearance. Interior luxury is achieved with premium amenities, including Natura leather, exotic open-pore wood trim and unique color offerings. Legendary Jeep capability comes courtesy of four available 4x4 systems, Jeepâ€(TM)s Quadra-Lift air suspension system and class-leading Selec-Terrain traction management system. Grand Cherokee boasts best-in-class towing of 7,400 pounds and a crawl ratio of 44.1:1.

 

Highlights

The standard Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6-powered Grand Cherokee, rated up to 295 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, tows up to 6,200 pounds while the available 5.7-liter V-8 packs 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque with best-in-class towing capacity of 7,400 lbs.

Jeep Grand Cherokee delivers best-in-class 30 miles per gallon (mpg) highway courtesy of an available 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine and standard TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission. The 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 boasts an unmatched driving range of more than 730 miles

Best performing on-road Jeep vehicle ever returns with SRT model and its proven and powerful 6.4-liter V-8 with Fuel Saver Technology that delivers 475 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. Performance includes 0-60 mph acceleration in 4.8 seconds, 0-100-0 mph in 16.3 seconds, quarter mile in the mid-13 second range and a top speed of 160 mph

Grand Cherokee SRT features eight drive modes that allow owners the ability to personalize their drive experience whether its on-road or on-track. The drive modes separately control the all-wheel drive system, transmission, paddle shifters, stability control, suspension and steering. Drive modes are pre-configured for Auto, Sport, Track, Snow and Tow settings via a switch on the center console, while the Custom setting lets the driver customize the drive experience to their favorite settings

Auto â€" Activates automatically when starting the vehicle

Sport â€" Delivers increased vehicle performance capability over the Auto Mode

Track â€" Delivers maximum vehicle performance capability on smooth, dry surfaces

Snow â€" Delivers optimized snow and ice performance

Tow â€" Delivers maximum towing performance

Custom â€" Allows driver to personalize the vehicleâ€(TM)s performance

Eco â€" Maximizes fuel economy with a revised shift schedule, pedal map and second-gear starts (Available in Auto, Sport and Track)

Valet â€" Limits engine to 4,000 rpm to significantly reduce horsepower and torque, reworks transmission to upshift earlier while traction, steering and suspension settings remain locked in Auto mode

Standard launch control mimics a professional driverâ€(TM)s inputs to optimize Grand Cherokee SRTâ€(TM)s performance by bringing engine, transmission, driveline, stability control and suspension in line for a textbook launch. Controlled by a button on the center console, the result is improved and more consistent straight-line acceleration

All Jeep Grand Cherokee engines are mated to the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. In addition to enhancing fuel economy, the robust and durable eight-speed transmission delivers quick acceleration and precise, smooth shifting, enhancing ride quality to luxury car levels

All Grand Cherokee models equipped with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine features Engine Stop-Start (ESS) technology to improve fuel efficiency by shutting the engine off when the vehicle comes to a complete stop. Amenities (radio, gauges, heating or air conditioning, etc.) continue to operate and the engine restarts automatically when the driver releases the brake, allowing seamless acceleration

Quadra-Drive II, with a rear Electronic Limited-slip Differential (ELSD), delivers industry-leading tractive capability. The system instantly detects tire slip and smoothly distributes engine torque to tires with traction. In some cases, the vehicle will anticipate low traction and adjust in order to proactively limit or eliminate slip

Selec-Speed Control with Hill-ascent and Hill-descent Control allows drivers to control Grand Cherokeeâ€(TM)s speed both up and down steep, rugged grades with the steering wheel paddle shifters â€" without the need for throttle or brake input. Unique to its segment, Grand Cherokee Hill-descent Control also works when the vehicle is in Reverse
