2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Auburn Hills, Mich. Sep 1, 2017 - Celebrating 25 years, Jeep® Grand Cherokee is the most-awarded SÚV ever and the vehicle that has long defined what a premium SÚV should be. Legendary Jeep capability comes courtesy of four available 4x4 systems, Jeep's Quadra-Lift air suspension system and class-leading Selec-Terrain traction management system. Grand Cherokee boasts best-in-class towing of 7,400 pounds and a crawl ratio of 44.1:1. For 2018, the Jeep brand expands its Grand Cherokee lineup with the introduction of the new Trackhawk model – the most powerful and quickest SÚV ever – that already includes the most capable factory-produced and most luxurious Grand Cherokee models ever with the Trailhawk and Summit.2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The headlamps on the Trackhawk model feature a unique Gloss Black background to accent their jewel-like appearance. Interior luxury is achieved with premium amenities, including Natura leather, exotic open-pore wood trim and unique color offerings.
