Jeep is all set to bring back the Grand Cherokee name badge as its flagship offering in India once again. Now in its fifth generation, the premium SUV will be fully loaded with all the equipment and features that it gets in overseas markets including driver-assistance tech. 

It will be launched tomorrow, November 16, as a rival to the BMW X5, Range Rover Sport and Audi Q7, and here’s everything you need to know about it:   

Big, boxy exteriors

The 2022 Grand Cherokee is an all-new SUV that takes nothing from its predecessor other than the name badge. It has a boxy aesthetic with a flat front-end, featuring a familiar seven-slat grille. It’s flanked by small but stern LED headlights with horizontal LED DRLs placed at the top edges of each lamp housing. 

The SUV looks a lot more aerodynamic in its profile with a swept-back windshield. At the rear, it gets narrow connected LED taillights, a creased tailgate and exhaust exits on the rear bumper. 

Premium and feature laden on the inside 

The interiors are undeniably premium and modern with a dashboard that gets an array of screens – a 10.25-inch digital driver’s display, 10-inch heads-up display, 10.1-inch centre infotainment touchscreen and another 10.25-inch display on the passenger side. 

Other premium features include a panoramic sunroof, powered tailgate, active noise cancellation and numerous remote features as part of the connected car tech. 

First Jeep to get ADAS in India 

The Grand Cherokee will debut Jeep’s suite of driver assistance and active safety features that include adaptive cruise control with stop and go, lane departure warning and lane-keeping assist, blind spot detection with rear cross-traffic monitoring and forward-collision prevention with pedestrian and intersection detection.  

Powertrain and capability 

Under the bonnet, the Grand Cherokee will have a 2-litre turbo-petrol engine paired with an eight-speed automatic and four-wheel-drive system. The Grand Cherokee will offer better off-road capability than its rivals, with Jeep’s Quadra-Trac 4x4 system and Selec-Terrain terrain management system on board. 

Should be reasonably priced 

Jeep will import the Grand Cherokee in the form of complete knock-down kits (CKDs) that will be locally assembled at the carmaker’s Ranjangaon plant. This should allow Jeep to price the SUV competitively, starting at around Rs 85 lakh (ex-showroom). 

The exact pricing and variants will be announced at the SUV’s launch tomorrow, so stay tuned for updates.
