Grand-Cherokee-New

WHEN: March 2013
 
HOW MUCH: Rs 60-75 lakh
 
ENGINES: 3.0 litre EcoDiesel V6 engine and 6.4 litre V8 HEMI engine
 
COMPETITION: Mercedes-Benz M-Class, Audi Q7, BMW X5

 

When the iconic Jeep brand forays into the Indian car market, the Grand Cherokee is likely to be their first product offering. The Cherokee will come to India via Fiat, which owns Chrysler. The announcement was made in December last year when Mike Manley, global CEO Jeep brand and Enrico Atanasio, Fiat India MD, outlined the company's vision for India at a press conference held in Mumbai.

 

The Grand Cherokee is presently offered with four different engine options - 3.0 litre EcoDiesel V6 engine, 3.6 litre V6 24-Valve VVT engine, 5.7 litre V8 MDS VVT engine and 6.4 litre V8 HEMI engine. All the engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The 3.0 litre EcoDiesel V6 and the 6.4 litre V8 HEMI engines are mostly likely to be offered in the Indian market. The 3.0-litre V6 diesel will account for the bulk of the sales, but for some discerning customers, Fiat-Chrysler wants to offer the legendary HEMI V8 as well. This HEMI-powered Grand Cherokee will form something of a halo model for the brand in India.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is quite a head-turner with its bold, sharp lines, square-shaped jaw and the characteristic Jeep toothy grin. On the exterior it features daytime running headlamps and power-heated folding mirrors with puddle lamps. The rear of the Jeep Grand Cherokee offers new, larger tail lamps with LED lighting, a large rear aerodynamic spoiler and a re-sculpted tailgate and a new capless fuel fill and power liftgate. The chassis is taken from the 2012 Mercedes M-class

 

On the inside, the Jeep Grand Cherokee sports a new customer-configurable 7-inch multi-view display with TFT technology that lets the user tailor all their personal settings and graphics. Detailed information on the vehicle is integrated into the advanced, colour-coordinated cluster, so that the user will be able to view - a full speed gauge, navigation system, Selec-Terrain system, Quadra-Lift suspension system and more.

 

Grand-Cherokee-Interior

For those who appreciate good sound design, the Jeep Grand Cherokee comes with a state-of-the-art Harman Kardon sound system with a 9-speaker system with 10-inch subwoofer and 506-watt amplifier.

 

To ensure better mileage, Jeep has equipped the Grand Cherokee with an Eco Mode drive feature. Eco Mode helps improve fuel economy by adjusting the transmission shift schedule, idle speed, interactive deceleration fuel shut off, and in V8 models, Fuel Saver cylinder deactivation. Automatically engaged upon vehicle startup, it activates the Quadra-Lift air suspension system and lowers it when vehicle speed exceeds 100kmph. On 4WD models in 4H, it alters the front-to-rear torque split to increase fuel efficiency.

 

 

Grand-Cherokee-Front

 

On the safety front, Jeep provided driver and front-passenger airbags and supplemental side-curtain airbags as standard in the Grand Cherokee. Standard crush zones in the front of the vehicle and side guard door beams (integrated into the design) also help absorb excess energy and decrease its transfer to occupants.

 

The Jeep Grand Cherokee will also come equipped with Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) safety features. BMS employs dual radar sensors to check driver blind spots and constantly monitors the space between the Grand Cherokee and other drivers. When the BSM detects a vehicle that's too close, drivers will be notified with an audible chime and illuminated icons that appear on the side view mirrors.

 

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a SUV of international repute. It has also won several awards. So there is little doubt about its credibility. So as long as the pricing is competitive, the Jeep Grand Cherokee could provide a positive start to Jeep's innings in India.
