Jeep Grand Cherokee

WK2 Series II Grand Cherokee

1 May 2017

The Jeep Grand Cherokee line-up was updated in May 2017, with the Trailhawk joining the range as a full-time proposition. The Trailhawk took the model range out to eight configurations across five variants in the Grand Cherokee line-up.

The Grand Cherokee updates included revised alloy front suspension parts, thicker front glass, a traditional T-bar automatic shifter and electric steering.

Other changes included a new grille, headlights, fascia, wheel design and foglights across the Grand Cherokee line-up, while the Pentastar petrol V6 scored a modest upgrade to 213kW (up 3kW) via the addition of variable valve timing. An idle-stop system was also added.

The Overland and SRT also scored forward collision warning with crash mitigation, lane departure warning with steer adjust and blind spot monitoring with rear cross-path detection, rear trailer hitch camera view, and front and rear parking sensors with an auto stop-function.

The 2017 SRT, meanwhile, was updated to exactly same specifications as the special-edition SRT Night, which was imported in limited numbers from June 2016.
