This new Jeep Grand Cherokee receives an updated style: all trim levels have been given a more premium look and are readily recognizable at a glance. On all models, the signature seven-slot grille is shorter in height, the headlights are slimmer and the lower front fascia has been slightly elevated while the fog lights have been raised and are more pronounced. All together, these changes give the front end of the Grand Cherokee a more elegant, sportier appearance while still preserving Jeep’s signature features.
The main design enhancement for the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee are the new high-intensity discharge bi-xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights (DRL), offered as standard on all trim levels. The Summit and SRT models feature adaptive HID bi-xenon headlamps with LED lighting.
The rear of the new Grand Cherokee has also received changes and boasts new, larger tail lamps with LED lighting, a larger and more aerodynamic rear spoiler, new bumpers and a re-sculpted tailgate that offers greater visibility. Lower rear fascias are now model-specific, and dual exhaust tips are now standard on Limited, Overland and Summit models.
The interior has been redone as well and it are enhanced thanks to the use of high quality materials and model-specific color combinations. The center stack has been revised and features a new UConnect 8.4″ touchscreen. Controls for radio and climate are found below the screen and have knobs and buttons which are easy to identify and to use. The centre console reveals a new leather-wrapped electronic shifter for the eight-speed transmission.
Jeep Grand Cherokee is powered by the efficient 3.0-liter turbo, direct-injection V-6 Common-rail diesel engine fitted with Multijet II Technology and by three petrol engine options: the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6, the legendary 5.7-liter V-8 and the powerful 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 engine that powers the high-performance SRT model. All petrol engines available on the new 2014 Grand Cherokee meet Euro 6 emission standards.
I will tell you more when I will get the car for a week test drive.
