American carmaker Jeep is all set to unleash its whole range of SUVs in India after debuting at the 2016 Auto Expo in Delhi.
Ahead of an expected later this year, Jeep has revealed details about their range-topping Grand Cherokee SUV including the different variants that will go on sale in India.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee will be available in three different variants — Limited, Summit, and the performance-oriented SRT.
Both the Limited and Summit will be powered by a 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine that produces 347hp and 570Nm of torque while returning a mileage of 12.8km/l.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is powered by a 6.4-litre HEMI V8 petrol engine that produces 475hp and 630Nm of torque. The SRT variant will sprint from 0 – 100km/h in just 4.8 seconds and will hit a top speed of 257km/h. The thirsty HEMI V8 returns a mileage of just 7.5km/l.
All variants use an 8-speed automatic gearbox that sends power to all four wheels.
The Limited will be the entry level variant of the Grand Cherokee in India and comes equipped with heated Front and middle row of seats. The front row of seats can be electronically adjusted and have memory function as well.
Other features include heated steering and heated ORVMs with memory function along with a powered tailgate. Also present are 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with voice controls. The headlamps are bi-xenon projectors.
Safety features include multiple airbags, ESC and traction control among others. The Terrain response system is also present to help you deal with rough stuff.
The mid-level Summit variant gets all the features of the Limited variant but replaces the 5-inch touchscreen with an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Other features include a limited slip differential along with a panoramic sunroof and a 506W amp.
The high-performance SRT variant gets a 19-speaker Harmon-Kardon Speaker system as standard. The speaker set is available as an option on Summit.
Unlike the lower trim levels, the SRT doesn't get the hill descent control or the panoramic sunroof. instead, the madcap SRT gets launch control and a track mode. The four-wheel drive system is also tuned to help the SUV get better on-road performance.
