The new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee was recently launched in Romanian car market. The 2014 Grand Cherokee was unveiled at this year’s Detroit Motor Show and will also go on sale in India later this year.
The 2014 Grand Cherokee comes with revised front & rear end styling and a handful of new features to remain fresh in the market. The Jeep Grand Cherokee facelift gets sleeker headlamp units with the quintessential DRLs and a revised front grille. The rear of the car too has been redesigned and gets clear lens tail lamps and chrome exhaust tips. The manufacturer claims that the new rear end makes the car more aerodynamic and hence, aids performance and efficiency.
On the inside, the car gets new upholstery and the new UConnect multimedia infotainment system. Other updates include an updated 115V power inverter, dual zone aircon made standard on all models, a centre console CD player, ambient lighting, new HVAC Controls, redesigned instrument cluster and steering mounted pedal shifters.
The car will continue to be powered by the current set of engines viz. 3.0 litre V6 diesel, 3.4 litre V6 petrol for base model, 5.4 litre HEMI V8 for higher variants and the 6.4 litre HEMI V8 for SRT.
In Romania, the car goes on sale for a starting price of 54000 Euros. The top of the line SRT goes on sale for 83000 Euros.
Talking about the car’s India launch, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee will be brought to us via completely built unit (CBU) route and it is anybody’s guess that we will get the 237bhp 3 Litre V6 turbo diesel engine for our market. This engine variant gets the new ZF 8 speed auto ‘box for transmitting all that power to the four wheels. The car also gets a start stop system to aid fuel economy.
