Jeep released all the important details of the new Grand Cherokee, the version which enters the UK market to be more precise. From the beginning we have to tell you that the American manufacturer decided to provide a single engine choice for the British market, something which does not sound too good indeed.
However, the good news is that they finally managed to release the right-hand drive version for the UK market, a model which comes with two trim levels, Limited and Overland to be more precise.
As mentioned above, the new Jeep Grand Cherokee enters the UK market with a single engine option, a 3.0-liter CRD common-rail unit able to return a fuel consumption of only 6 liters/100 km and a driving range of 1,125 km per fuel tank. According to these figures, it seems that the Americans from Jeep managed to develop a very efficient SUV mainly considering that the models within this segment are not very eco-friendly and fuel-efficient.
Even the fuel economy is undoubtedly a strong point, we forgot to mention that the V6 turbo diesel unit is able to produce 237 horsepower which combined with the average fuel consumption equals a very good choice. Moving to the equipment and pricing, the first package is called Limited and brings as standard the Quadra-Trac II 4WD system, bi-xenon headlamps, Selec-Terrain system, Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist but also 18-inch alloy wheels, leather heated seats and a 9-speaker Alpine surround sound system.
This version comes with a starting price of £36,795 while the price can rise by adding some optionals such as the 20-inch alloy wheels with 265/70 R20 performance tires, Deep-tint sunscreen glass or CommandView panoramic sunroof.
If this is still not enough for your needs, you can opt for the Overland package which brings performance brakes with sports suspension, heated steering wheel, Quadra-Lift air suspension, Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning and Premium Nappa leather seats. The starting price for the Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland is £43,995 but you really get an impressive bunch of features for the buck.
