Jeep Grand Cherokee created the premium SUV category 26 years ago. With over six million sold since its first introduction, it continues to represent the benchmark in its category this year with the new S Limited. Based on the Limited trim level, the new S Limited stands out for its unique, bold and sporty style. The Jeep brand is showing this European-Spec 2019 special edition to the European public for the first time at the Geneva International Auto Show, this week.
The exterior features distinctive design cues from the Grand Cherokee SRT model.. Front and rear fascias boast a model-specific design with Low Gloss Granite Crystal finishes. The new special edition model sports SRT-style performance hood, while the bespoke side skirts and the unmistakably Jeep fender flares, capable of evoking strength and elegance, provide a stand-out appeal. The exterior is completed with a burnished exhaust tip and Low Gloss Granite Crystal 20-inch aluminum wheels, with chrome lug nuts.
This sporty appeal is found in the cabin which features the same “blacked-out” theme of the vehicle’s exterior along with a new Piano Black integrated center stack. The interior also offers specific black ventilated leather-wrapped perforated front seats with heated cushions and backrests. A high-tech new infotainment package adds to the appeal, while the new S Limited also offers a premium Alpine sound system with digital amplifier, Active Noise Cancellation, nine speakers, subwoofer and the latest generation of the Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen system with navigation, bonded glass design, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The vehicle on display on the Jeep stand in Geneva boasts a Bright White exterior and a black leather interior. It is fitted with a 3.0-liter V6 direct injection Common Rail diesel engine featuring Multijet II technology that delivers 250 hp and is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and shift paddles on the steering wheel. The new Grand Cherokee S Limited will be debuting in European Jeep dealerships in this month.
The introduction of the new S Limited special edition also marks the market launch of the 2019 Model Year lineup of the most-awarded SUV ever in Europe. In addition to the updated interior featuring a redesigned center console, new technology for improved comfort and safety will make the Jeep flagship even more appealing. Major exterior enhancements include all-new finishes, new wheels and three new exterior paint colors – Slate Blue, Green Metallic and Sting Grey.
