About Jeep Grand Cherokee
Jeep’s huge luxury SUV is the Grand Cherokee. It boasts five seats and all the off-road features you’d expect from a Jeep. There are three engines available: a 3.0-litre V6 diesel with 243 horsepower, a 290-hp 3.6-litre V6 petrol with 290 horsepower, and a 468-hp 6.4-litre V8 petrol with 468 horsepower. The Grand Cherokee is imported into India as a fully completed vehicle, hence it is more expensive than its locally assembled competitors.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee has a broad shoulder and a sleek appearance, but it lacks visual drama. On the inside, it’s a similar story. The Grand Cherokee’s cabin is clean and well-constructed, but it lacks the wow factor found in comparable European SUVs. The Grand Cherokee’s petrol V6 is strong and quiet, while the diesel V6 is snappy and wonderfully refined. Front-seat comfort is superb, and there’s plenty of room in the rear, even if the seats are a little low. Noise insulation is good in general, but the suspension elevates the experience by effortlessly absorbing the worst of our roads. The Jeep Grand Cherokee, true to its DNA, is also capable off-road. In terms of the Grand Chero,As for the Grand Cherokee SRT, simply put, it’s an SUV that thinks it’s a muscle car.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a luxurious SUV with a lot of appeal. Even yet, its exorbitant price is difficult to swallow, especially given the premium brand alternatives available. If we had to choose, we’d go with the Jeep Grand Cherokee diesel in Summit specification. It’s the only one with air suspension, plus it comes with high-end features like an 8.4-inch touchscreen and rear entertainment screens. The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT isn’t the most agile of performance SUVs, but its soulful engine will win you over.
According to the company, the Grand Cherokee is the most awarded SUV of all time, and it will be one of the first models to arrive here. So, what exactly is this new-age Jeep?
Let’s start with the appearances. The sharply curved daytime running lamps and slit-like headlamps are the first things that people notice. Then they notice the seven-slat grille, broad shoulders, and squared-off wheelarches, and their jaws drop. As a result, the Grand Cherokee commands attention. Surprisingly, given all the drama of the front end, the back end is pretty bland — it looks a little like a Fortuner from a distance. The only conceivable turnoffs of an otherwise butch looking SUV are the enormous chrome wheels that this Summit variant comes with.
