Jeep Grand Cherokee S Limited
Jeep officially announced the introduction of the new S Limited trim line in the Grand Cherokee lineup.
The new Jeep Grand Cherokee trim line will be available exclusively for Jeep customers in Europe.
Showcased to the public in Geneva as a design study developed to explore the stylistic potential of the Jeep flagship, the new S Limited model boasts a unique trim that adds to the premium design of Jeep Grand Cherokee distinctive styling cues and Black accents. The result: a Grand Cherokee boasting a new aggressive flair and combining exclusive sporty appeal to the efficiency of the new 3.0-litre V-6 turbo-diesel engine with Multijet II technology, with a plethora of advanced active safety features fitted as standard.
The exterior features a more streamlined appearance thanks to the introduction of new roof molding covers that replace the roof rack. The vehicle's grille surround appears in black gloss and mesh grille texture in platinum chrome. A platinum chrome lower fascia applique´ completes the unique front-end appearance. Black headlamp bezels, black liftgate light-bar and black chrome dual exhaust tips continue the "blacked-out" theme throughout the vehicle's exterior. The new Jeep Grand Cherokee S Limited rides on 20-inch tires that surround black-gloss aluminum wheels to enhance the vehicle's aggressive appearance.
The interior of the new S Limited features a leather-wrapped perforated heated steering wheel and ventilated sports-styled Nappa leather and suede seats. Real carbon fiber accents are integrated into the instrument panel and door trim panels. Bright, racing style brake and pedal pads add to the sporty, performance-oriented look inside the cabin.
Jeep Grand Cherokee S Limited is powered by the efficient 3.0-litre V-6 turbo-diesel engine with new-generation, 1.800-bar injectors and Multijet II technology developed and patented by Fiat Powertrain. The 3.0-litre turbo-diesel engine produces maximum power of 241 hp at 4,000 rpm and torque of 550 Nm at 1,800-2,800 rpm and is paired to the five-speed automatic transmission with Electronic Range Select (ERS). The 3.0-litre CRD powertrain is also offered in a low-output version, with 190 hp of power at 4,000 rpm and 440 Nm of torque across 1,600-2,800 rpm.
The new Jeep Grand Cherokee S Limited is equipped with Quadra-Trac II® 4x4 system with two-speed transfer case and Brake Traction Control System (BTCS) on both the front and rear axle to ensure benchmark off-road capability. Quadra-Trac II's two-speed transfer case uses the inputs coming from a variety of sensors in order to determine tire slip at the earliest possible time and take corrective actions. The system uses Throttle Anticipate to sense quick movement in the throttle from a stop and maximizes traction before slippage occurs. When tire slippage is detected, 100-percent of the available torque is instantly routed to the axle with the most traction. Ultimate on-road and off-road capabilities are accomplished through the assistance of the Quadra-LiftTM air-suspension system with five height settings granting the possibility to change the ride height from 16.5 to 27 cm of ground clearance, the Selec-TerrainTM traction control system with five different terrain settings, the standard Hill Descent Control, for maximum downhill control, and Hill Start Assist, allowing a smooth launch on a grade.
The standard equipment for on-board comfort and infotainment offers the latest technology and aims at transforming every journey in an absolute pleasure. In addition to the advanced UConnect® multimedia infotainment and navigation system with 6.5-inches touchscreen, 30 gigabyte hard disk, USB compatibility, AUX port, DVD video and voice activated Bluethooth UConnect Phone, the new S Limited model offers exclusive Command View®dual-pane panoramic sunroof and a state-of-the-art audio surround-sound system from Harman Kardon®.
