2017 Jeep Grand CherokeeĀ 

Meet the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The all-new 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee delivers the latest and greatest five-passenger midsize SUV and is available in five trim levels. The five trim levels include the Laredo, Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, and Summit. All the trim levels are equipped with rear-wheel drive with an option of four-wheel drive, however the Trailhawk strictly offers the four-wheel drive. The base engine for the 2017 Grand Cherokee would be the 3.6-liter V6 engine and is able to produce up to 295 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft of torque. Although this engine is standard for all Cherokee's, there are also two additional engine options. For the Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, and Summit models, there is also the 5.7-liter V8 engine that is able to produce up to 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft of torque and if you are in the pursuit of more power just wait until you hear the other option. The final engine option is the turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6 engine that produces up to 240 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft of torque. As far as transmission goes, there is the standard eight-speed automatic transmission across the board.

The Laredo and the Limited

It is a common misconception that when buying a new vehicle that you have to go up in trim levels to receive high-quality features, but with the Grand Cherokee that is not the case. The first couple of trim levels are known as the Laredo and the Limited. The Laredo is the base trim and is equipped with features such as 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, foglights, heated mirrors, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, keyless ignition and entry, and LED interior lighting. As far as the interior goes, the Laredo features dual-zone automatic climate control and a leather wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. Technological features include Bluetooth, six-speaker sound system with a 5-inch touchscreen, a USB port, SD-card slot, and an auxiliary audio jack. The next trim level would be the Limited and this is where you begin to see an increase in features. The Limited is equipped with standard 18-inch wheels, additional chrome exterior trim, remote start, an auto-dimming driver-side and rearview mirror, and a power liftgate. The interior of the Limited offers a 115-volt power outlet, satellite radio, a heated power steering wheel, heated front and rear seats, leather upholstery, eight-way power front seats, driver memory settings, and an additional USB charging port.

The Trailhawk, the Overland, and the Summit

If you are searching for the best in off-road handling, then you started at the right place by turning to the Jeep brand, but the Trailhawk, Overland, and Summit trim levels take this to another level with the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Trailhawk starts off the line of trim levels that are highly focused on the sport of off-roading. The Trailhawk features unique exterior styling flourishes, different 18-inch wheels with off-road tires, four-wheel drive with low-range gearing, and an adjustable air suspension with increased suspension travel. There is also hill ascent and descent control, an electronic limited slip rear differential, underbody skid plates, power-folding mirrors with passenger side auto-dimming, ventilated front seats, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen interface with voice controls and a nine-speaker sound system. The next trim level is the Overland and is very similar to the Trailhawk while still having unique features such as the 20-inch wheels, automatic wipers, xenon headlights with auto leveling, a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, a navigation system, HD radio, and extended leather upholstery. Finally, the top of the line trim would be the Summit. The Summit adds on polished 20-inch wheels, headlamp washers, front parking sensors, a self-parking system, illuminated doorsills, additional noise reducing acoustic glass for the windows, active noise-canceling technology, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring with rear-cross traffic alert, a forward collision mitigation system with automatic emergency braking, upgraded leather upholstery with diamond-quilted accents, and a 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system.
