Jeep Grand Cherokee 2017 | New Car Sales Price


Jeep has powered into 2017 with a revision of its Grand Cherokee line-up, rationalising the model choice but adding more equipment and a tough new variant called the Trailhawk.

Prices open at $47,500 plus on-road costs for the rear-wheel-drive Laredo V6 petrol, an increase of $500, and sound out at the SRT V8 petrol that increases by $1000 to $91,000.

In between, Jeep has chopped the Overland petrol ($72,000) and Summit diesel ($87,000) versions from the Australian list and slipped in a more off-road capable variant that shares its Trailhawk name with variants of the Cherokee and Renegade.

Jeep Australia director Guillaume Drelon said the 2017 models are more refined on the road and more capable off the road.

“We have boosted the safety credentials and made it even better value for money,” he said.

The 2017 models are identified by a slimmer grille, front spoiler, new-style headlights and LED daytime running lights.

Six new paint colours – increasing the choice to 11 – and restyled designs for the 18-inch and 20-inch alloy wheels also identify the latest wagon.

The diesel-only Trailhawk, priced at $74,000, adds an electronic limited-slip rear differential for increased traction, an expanded range of the air suspension that lifts ground clearance to 260mm – the most of any Grand Cherokee – and allows greater wheel articulation.

Bodywork upgrades include four skid plates, red front tow hooks, grey grille and mirror shells, and a matte-black bonnet decal.

All variants except the SRT now have Jeep Offroad Pages included in the Uconnect infotainment system. The feature adds information on the touchscreen such as wheel articulation, driving modes, and oil, water and transmission temperatures.

Cabin upgrades include a new gear selector with features to prevent roll-away and an acoustic windscreen and front-door glass. Safety improvements are a lane-departure warning alert and park assist.

The Grand Cherokee continues to be available with three engines – 3.6-litre V6 petrol at 213kW/347Nm; a 184kW/570Nm 3.0-litre V6 diesel; and the SRT’s 344kW/624Nm 6.4-litre petrol V8.

All have eight-speed transmissions with dual-range 4WD available in all variants except the 2WD Laredo and the SRT.

Jeep claims that recent revisions to the 3.6-litre V6 have increased the power by 3kW from 210kW and reduced fuel consumption by four per cent, though the latter is attributed to the inclusion of a idle-stop system.

The Grand Cherokee has Jeep’s latest “There and Back Guarantee” that comprises a five-year transferable warranty, lifetime roadside assistance and capped-price servicing for life if conducted by an authorised Jeep dealer.
