Jeep India currently offers the Compass, Wrangler and recently launched the Meridian as a three-row SUV that rivals Toyota Fortuner. But the Grand Cherokee is likely to gain a whole lot of attention courtesy its plethora of features and iconic 4x4 capabilities. First launched in 1992, the Grand Cherokee is highlighted as the most-awarded SUV over the years and the latest edition of the vehicle had made its global debut a year ago. In global markets where offered, the SUV is also offered with a plug-in hybrid option although it is not clear yet if this will also make way into India.

The latest Grand Cherokee is largely similar to the previous model but does benefit from a slightly more dominant visual appearance with sharper lines. The front grille has been updated while still sporting the trademark seven-slot Jeep grille. The LED head light units are now sleeker while the rear LED light units too have been reworked.

On the inside, space has been enhanced in the latest Grand Cherokee and the three-row version is longer still than the two-row version of the model. Feature additions like a 10.25-inch main screen, AppleCarPlay and Android Auto come as standard. There are entertainment screens for rear passengers as well and the car gets 4G as inbuilt to support playback from streaming sites. The all-leather upholstery and 19-speaker sound system seek to further elevate the premium experience inside the vehicle.
