Jeep-expo-2016

 

Jeep brand was introduced to India at the 2016 Auto Expo in New Delhi. With a line-up of three SUVs – Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, Jeep Grand Cherokee and the high-performance Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT – Jeep brand sales in India will start in mid-2016, a year that also marks the brand’s 75th anniversary.

 

“Our aggressive expansion in international markets is one of the key drivers behind our current global sales momentum,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand, FCA, and Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the Asia Pacific (APAC) Regional Operations Group. “Last year, we started local production in Brazil and China, and today, we are launching the Jeep brand in the fifth largest market in the world, India, setting the foundation for our future growth in this country.”

 

Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Grand Cherokee will be sold with diesel and petrol engines through a network of dealers located in key metro cities.

 

Both the Grand Cherokee Limited and Summit are powered with a 3.0L CRD Turbo V6 Diesel engine generating an exhilarating power of 240 hp and 570 Nm of torque. The Grand Cherokee Limited is equipped with Quadra Trac II and the Grand Cherokee Summit gets the Quadra Drive II traction control which makes the cars capable of delivering legendary 4x4 performance and experience.

 

The Grand Cherokee SRT bears a 6.4L 470 hp HEMI V8 engine that feeds a Quadra-Trac Active On-Demand 4WD system. An eight-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters helps drivers go full throttle on the track, to reach a hair-raising top speed of 258 kmph. The Launch Control button optimizes every possible setting for maximum acceleration off the line. The Brembo high-performance brake system (ABS) provides the stopping power you need. The Grand Cherokee SRT will also have fuel saver technology.

 

The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited comes with a 2.8L CRD Turbo Diesel DOHC I-4 engine powering the wheels through a 5-speed automatic transmission. It’s capable of tackling rough off-road terrain with its Command-Trac Shift-On-The-Fly 4WD. Hill Start Assist (HAS) and Electronic Roll Mitigation (ERM) ensures that drivers are gripped to the road. It delivers a legendary 4x4 performance with a lower crawl ratio. The Wrangler Unlimited will be ‘Trail-rated’. The Trail Rated badge on Jeep 4x4s represents a series of gruelling tests that prove its off-road capability on some of the toughest trails on the planet.

 

The Grand Cherokee Limited will feature dual pane sunroof, premium leather seats, Selec-terrain traction control, 5-inch touch-screen infotainment system, memory seat for the driver and 8 way power adjustable front seats. Additionally, customizable premium instrument cluster is also being offered. Along with the features offered in the Limited variant, Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit will additionally get ventilated front seats and 8.4-inch touch-screen navigation and infotainment system along with rear DVD entertainment system.

 

The interiors of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT are race-inspired. The exclusive Laguna leather upholstery makes the car more sporty and stylish. Processing is kept to a minimum to let the leather’s natural softness and beauty shine through. The leather will develop creases and wrinkles that conform to the way that you sit in the seat. The car will also feature a Harman Kardon 19-Speaker sound system will be offered with active Noise cancellation. The leather wrapped steering will hold a SRT logo with paddle shifts positioned behind the wheel.

 

The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has washable interiors to keep the mud and dirt at bay. There will be a lockable storage space offered in the interiors. The steering wheel is leather-wrapped with mounted controls for the touch-screen provided for entertainment and navigation. The Wrangler Unlimited is fitted with an Alpine Premium Audio system. The car comes with the Command-Trac Shift-On-The-Fly 4WD system to help the vehicle manoeuvre over rugged paths.
