Grand Cherokee reworked

The Grand Cherokee, no longer Jeep’s sales leader but quite possibly its main profit generator, has been reworked for the 2017 model year, from off-road Trailhawk to luxurious Summit to speedy street machine SRT.

The updated Trailhawk retains its front and rear tow hooks, and brings 18-inch Goodyear Adventure off-road tires with Kevlar reinforcement, and new badges with red accents. They continue to have an anti-glare hood decal, ascent and descent control, limited slip differentials, a special air suspension, and Quadra-Drive II.

Approach angles were reported at 29.8° (36.1° when the lower front fascia is removed for severe off-roading); the breakover angle is 27.1° and the departure angle is 22.8°, with up to 10.8 inches of static ground clearance. The off-road pages have been updated to show wheel articulation, suspension height, and such.

For luxury buyers, the Grand Cherokee Summit has a new leather interior, new exterior appearance (front fascia, fog lamps, grille), and added features, including Lane Departure Warning, Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist, and Trailer Hitch Camera View at Speed. There are four color schemes including a new full-wrap Laguna leather in Indigo and Ski Gray.

A rearview camera and rear park sensors are now standard on all Jeep Grand Cherokee trims. The Laredo, Limited, Overland, and Trailhawk have the 2016 75th Anniversary front fascia and grille; the Grand Cherokee SRT has a new front fascia, fog lamps, grille, and Laguna leather interior package. That front looks as though it’s ready for a Hellcat engine, doesn’t it?
