The Grand Cherokee will be positioned above the upcoming Meridian.

Jeep has taken the wraps off the all-new Grand Cherokee. The SUV is set to reach our shores sometime next year via the CKD route.

The Grand Cherokee will be positioned above the upcoming Meridian. However, its styling is similar to the 7-seater version of the Compass. The SUV features a more upright front fascia with the typical 7-slat grille and has slim LED taillights at the rear.

On the inside, the Grand Cherokee comes equipped with a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a digital instrument cluster. Customers will get the option of a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system along with a rear-seat entertainment package with Amazon Fire TV functionality.

The new Grand Cherokee is available with three powertrain options. These include a 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 petrol with 294 BHP and 348 Nm, a 5.7-litre V8 producing 357 BHP and 528 Nm and a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder, turbo-petrol plug-in hybrid that makes 375 BHP and 637 Nm. This powertrain comes with a 17 kWh battery pack that offers an all-electric range of 40 km.

The SUV comes equipped with the Quadra-Lift air suspension system that can raise the ground clearance to 287 mm. It also gets the Quadra-Drive II active transfer case with an electronically controlled limited-slip differential, and a sway bar disconnect system.

The Grand Cherokee comes loaded with safety tech. The SUV gets features such as collision warning, adaptive cruise control, active lane management, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, brake assist, blind-spot monitor, night vision camera, intersection collision assist, rear cross-path detection, and a drowsiness sensor.
