JEEP announces lower prices post GST, Launches Grand Cherokee Petrol

FCA India today announced the launch of the ‘petrol’ version of the Jeep® Grand Cherokee in India at Rs. 75.15 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi). The company also announced upgrades in the entire range of luxury SUVs along with new prices, thereby offering more value to Indian customers. The new prices are as follows:

The Jeep Grand Cherokee petrol is powered by a 3.6-litre V6 engine that develops 290 PS and 347 Nm. The engine is mated to a 8-speed automatic transmission. According to the company, the automatic transmission is engineered to deliver improved overall performance resulting in less drag on the clutches. This is achieved by optimized lubrication that leads to smoother shifts and quicker responses. There are 3 drive modes to choose from – Normal, Comfort, Sport. 4-wheel drive is standard on all the variants. Air suspension is also standard on the Summit variants of the Jeep Grand Cherokee range along with 20-inch, polished aluminum alloy wheels. There is also a new electronic power steering system that replaces the old hydraulic system. All trims, across the range now get an acoustic windshield which helps reduce noise, while the Park Sense rear park assist system can now automatically apply the vehicle’s brakes.

Commenting on the move, Kevin Flynn – President and Managing Director, FCA India said, “Our directly-imported Jeep SUV portfolio is now complete with the addition of the Grand Cherokee Summit Petrol. Latest models of the New Jeep® Grand Cherokee and Wrangler Unlimited, at new India prices, are available with immediate effect at all Jeep-exclusive and FCA dealerships across the country. We believe the new package with visual and technological enhancements on offer will elevate the driving and ownership experience for Indian customers.”
