Jeep's New 2017 Grand Cherokee at East Hills Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM for Greenvale, NY
Jeep's Grand Cherokee line is its most-awarded SUV ever, which is quite an accomplishment considering the category's contenders. For 2017, there are four available 4x4 systems in addition to Jeep's Quadra-Lift air suspension system and the tested traction-focused 'Selec-Terrain' system. Jeep improves on the exterior design from last year with customized LED daytime running lamps (DRL) and by brightening things up via optional bi-xenon headlamps for night driving. The SRT model acquires a distinguishing front fascia that encapsulates fog lamps, a new grille and a leather interior signature package. A new model is added for 2017: the 'Trailhawk', which features red rear/front tow hooks, red accented Trailhawk/Trail-Rated badges, and standard 18-inch Goodyear Adventure off-road tires (with Kevlar reinforcements). Standard safety features also get a lift for 2017, including a back-facing camera and parking sensors on the rear for every model. The 2017 Laredo, Limited, Overland, and Trailhawk models benefit with items from last year's 75th Anniversary edition: a modified front fascia and a seven-slot Jeep grille.
Under the Grand Cherokee's Hood
Still think you know all the Grand Cherokee's surprises? An incredible 30 miles per gallon (highway) can be achieved with the available 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine, with a huge driving range of more than 730 miles. It can achieve 44.1:1 for a crawl ratio, depending on how it is configured. That's going to be very tough to beat! It will tow up to 6200-lbs, when the standard Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 roars within the Grand Cherokee, getting up to 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The 5.7-liter V8 is able to be purchased and demands to be heard at 360-hp getting 390 lb-ft of torque, plus has a best-in-class towing capacity of 7400-lbs. The SRT model has a 6.4-liter V8 (with Fuel Saver Technology) that sees 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. There are 8 drive modes for the SRT trim, and there are five traditional settings: Auto, Sport, Track, Snow and Tow. There is also a Custom, Valet, and ECO mode as well. The off-road ready Trailhawk incorporates Jeep's Quadra-Drive II 4x4 system (which has a rear Electronic Limited-slip Differential) as standard, then adds a matte hood decal, and the Selec-Speed Control (which has Hill-Ascent/Descent Control). Wait-- not finished adding things in yet; the Trailhawk continues with a Trailhawk-specific version of Grand Cherokee's Quadra-Lift air suspension, and also armor-like skidplates. The available Quadra-Drive II, with a rear Electronic Limited-slip Differential (ELSD), brings industry-leading tractive ability. And in case you are wondering, engines on any model are paired with the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission.
