2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee – The Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of Fiat Chrysler’s most prosperous vehicles at the moment. So much to ensure that even though this generation has been on sale considering that the 2011 model year, FCA isn’t about to mess with accomplishment and roll out a entire new generation. But, at the 2016 New York International Auto Show, it’s rolling out one new trim level and providing a further a decent update.
Fresh off a 2016 upgrade, Jeep updated two models for 2017: the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and Grand Cherokee Summit. One is the top rated off-road SUV, the other is the prime luxury SUV. They come at a great time for Jeep, with U.S. sales soaring by 7% to 195,598 in 2015.

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk
Standard Trailhawk gear involves Jeep’s Quadra-Drive II four-wheel-drive system, a revised air suspension (particularly for Trailhawk, we’re told), skid plates, the black hood decal, and cute little red tow hooks. It’s also got an ever-so-slightly distinct front fascia, taken appropriate from the 2012 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk Moab concept. Buyers can opt for from 18- or 20-inch wheels.
Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk models are out there in Redline Red, Billet Silver, Bright White, Rhino, Granite Crystal, Velvet Red and Diamond Black Crystal exterior paints.
2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit
A new front fascia with revised chrome grille detailing and LED fog lamps sets the Summit aside from decrease trim levels. Also, the Grand Cherokee Summit’s 20-inch polished aluminum wheels happen to be redesigned for the new year.
The alterations continue to the interior, where the Grand Cherokee Summit gains Laguna leather trim inside a option of four color schemes which includes a new Indigo/Ski Gray combination.
Mechanically, the Grand Cherokee Summit remains unchanged. A 3.6-liter V-6 engine is standard, while the possibilities chart involves 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 and 5.7-liter gasoline V-8 options. All powertrains are mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox and either rear- or four-wheel drive.
Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit models are out there in Light Brown Stone, True Blue, Bright White, Ivory Pearl, Granite Crystal, Velvet Red, Diamond Black Crystal and Luxury Brown exterior paints.
2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Engine
What’s excellent is that both Trailhawk and Summit models may be had with three diverse engines. The standard powerplant is Chrysler’s 295-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6, but the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 and 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 are also offered. (We adore the concept of a Trailhawk with the diesel, by the way).
