Jeep Reveals Special Grand Cherokee At NAIAS
It is a celebratory version, one that will be up for grabs later this year but only for a limited period.
At the ongoing Detroit Auto Show, aka North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), Jeep has unveiled a special edition of the Grand Cherokee. Dubbed as the 30th Anniversary Edition, it is based on the SUV’s 4xe variant. While the name is self-explanatory (the model has turned thirty!), Jeep chose to base it on the 4xe variant because of what it represents – “the most technologically advanced and 4×4-capable” version.
To make it stand out, Jeep has added a few bespoke touches into the mix. On the outside, it boasts 20-inch black wheels, special-edition badging, a dual-pane sunroof, blacked-out front fascia, blue tow hooks, dual exhaust outlets, and body-colour rear fascia, lower mouldings, sill claddings and wheel flares. Indoors, the SUV packs black Capri leather seats, a wireless charging pad, a nine-speaker Alpine sound system, ventilated front seats and Support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Also available are features such as Uconnect 5 connected-car tech, a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 360-degree surround view camera system and a digital rear-view mirror.
Mechanically, there are no changes to report. That means the PHEV offers 375hp/637Nm from the combination of a 2.0-litre petrol engine, an electric motor, and 8-speed automatic transmission. Moreover, the Grand Cherokee 4xe can travel up to 40km on electric power alone.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe 30th Anniversary Edition will be available in seven colours and other optional accessories such as side steps and running boards. If you want to check it out, the celebratory version will remain on display at this year’s NAIAS until September 25, 2022.
For the extra bits and pieces, Jeep will charge around USD 4,700. However, you cannot do that right now because the booking counter is closed for now. That will open later this year but only for a limited period. As for the vehicles, they will begin arriving at authorised dealerships by early next year.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
