“With the new 2014 Jeep® Grand Cherokee, we have taken the industry’s most highly acclaimed SUV and elevated it to an even higher level.” – Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC.
When you’ve built the most highly acclaimed SUV and, really, the model for premium, luxury SUVs, the whole industry looks to you. Sometimes it’s for inspiration. Other times, they’re looking for you to slip up. Or to fall off. Or else they lie in the shadows, waiting to pounce.
How did the Jeep brand respond to that pressure? By making the most awarded SUV ever even better for 2014. Introducing the premium SUV, redefined: the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
One of the most noteworthy and, to be sure, talked-about additions for 2014 is the new, clean, 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine that delivers best-in-class 30 miles per gallon and a driving range of more than 730 miles. All this while featuring best-in-class towing of 7,400 pounds. Plus, the new eight-speed transmission increases fuel efficiency across all powertrains while improving Grand Cherokee’s off-road capability and performance.
In the weeks and months ahead, we’ll delve even deeper into the new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s powertrain options, its Go Anywhere capability, premium-crafted design, advanced technology and safety features, and improved quality.
