September 28, 2016: Jeep has finally entered India today with three of its most popular models – the Grand Cherokee, the Grand Cherokee SRT, and Wrangler Unlimited. The Grand Cherokee comes with a minimum price tag of Rs 93.64 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and has a 3.0-litre V6 EcoDiesel engine with an engine capacity of 2,998cc. This mill produces 243PS of peak power and 570Nm of peak torque. Mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, this SUV returns a mileage of 12.8kmpl. It is available in six colors options and in terms of features, the SUV comes with an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, heated seats dressed in Nappa leather, dual pane panoramic sunroof, rear blue-ray entertainment system, HID headlamps with LED DRLs and 20-inch alloy wheels. To stay true to its go anywhere DNA, the SUV has a Selec-Terrain traction control system, QUADRA-TRAC II grip control, an electronic limited-slip differential, and a hill ascent/descent control. In recent developments, Jeep will unveil the updated 2017 versions of the Grand Cherokee – Summit and SRT – at the upcoming Paris Motor Show this week. Both the versions will feature aesthetic upgrades and spruced up interiors.
Is the Jeep Grand Cherokee a Good SUV?
The 2-row Jeep Grand Cherokee is a good midsize SUV with solid off-road capabilities. There are four different 4×4 drivetrain systems available, including full-time and part-time systems. Off-road features like an adjustable air suspension and terrain selection further enhance the Grand Cherokee’s capabilities. Add to this a ground clearance of up to 10.8 inches when properly equipped, and it’s easy to see why the Grand Cherokee is a very capable vehicle when the road ends.
- Excellent off-road capabilities
- Powerful engine lineup
- Upscale cabin
- Intuitive infotainment system
Still, on-road driving can be fun too, thanks to the Grand Cherokee’s available 6.4-liter V8 engine in the SRT trim that puts out 475 horsepower. You don’t have to option up for good power output, however. The base V6 puts out a punchy 300 horsepower. As for handling, the Grand Cherokee stays stable and confident around turns.
Inside, the Grand Cherokee has one of the best cabins in the class, thanks in part to an excellent infotainment system. The materials are upscale, the seats are comfortable, and there’s lots of passenger room. As with many vehicles this size, however, visibility out of the back is diminished. The Grand Cherokee’s standard rearview camera and parking sensors take much of the anxiety out of reversing and parking.
If you want cargo space, you’re better off looking elsewhere. The Grand Cherokee offers a maximum of 68.3 cubic feet of cargo room – less than you’ll find in the Toyota 4Runner, the Kia Sorento, and the Honda Pilot.
