Jeep Grand Cherokee Design
The Grand Cherokee is everything you expect of an SUV with its big boxy shape. Up front, the big grille is blinged up in the SRT variant. Flanking the grille are bi-xenon projector headlamps while underneath the grille sits a big air dam which is part of the muscular grille.
At the sides, under the pumped up wheel arches sit 20-inch chrome 'Goliath' wheels, while the rear sees sleek wraparound tail lamps.
Inside, the Grand Cherokee features a touchscreen infotainment system and a lot of leather with wood inserts on the dash.
