One of the most popular brands for off-road vehicles, Jeep, is making a grand entry into the Indian market with the Grand Cherokee. It is a luxury SUV that brings a balance between off-road capability and on-road comfort. The SUV will be positioned above the hardcore off-roader Wrangler Unlimited as it offers a lot more creature comforts. The engine will only come mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with steering mounted paddle shifters, given the competitors in the segment.

The SUV will get four-wheel drive as well as two-wheel drive variants. There will be a few leather upholstery options including black, brown and Sienna brown, which is a lighter shade of brown. The interiors offer a premium touch with real wood on the dashboard and high definition displays for media consumption in the rear seats.

The Uconnect infotainment system comes with 8.4" touchscreen and voice-guided navigation built in. The 500W sound system in the Grand Cherokee has been developed by Harman Kardon. A wide power-operated panoramic sunroof on top gives the feeling of roominess. There's a large storage space of 1934 litres in the boot.

The automaker will offer the Grand Cherokee with two trims - Limited and Summit. Both the trims will be offered with 3.0-litre, CRD, Turbo, V6 diesel engine that generates 242 PS and 570 Nm of torque. The Cherokee Limited is equipped with Quadra-Trac II, while the Cherokee Summit comes with Quadra Drive II traction control that lets the SUV deliver 4X4 performanc.

The company will initially launch the Grand Cherokee via the completely built-up (CBU) route and later, the SUV will be locally assembled at the company's plant in Ranjangaon.
