Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has launched the petrol engined variant of the regular Grand Cherokee SUV in India. Priced at Rs 75.15 lakh, ex-showroom, New Delhi, it joins the diesel and SRT variants of the vehicle. The announcement comes ahead of the price announcement and launch of the made-in-India Jeep Compass, scheduled to take place on July 31.
Like the rest of the current range, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit (Petrol) is powered by a 3.6-litre Pentastar engine which makes 285.6 bhp and 35.40 kgm. It comes with all-wheel drive system and an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
Along with making the announcement, Jeep India has also updated the Grand Cherokee range. It now comprises the diesel- (in Limited and Summit trims), petrol- (in Summit trim), and SRT-engined variants. The changes include a new 75th anniversary fascia, a new gen-II version of the eight-speed automatic gearbox, new alloy wheels (18-inch for Limited, 20-inch for Summit and SRT), a total of six colour options, and a few new standard options for the Summit trim: air suspension, LED fog lamps, etc.
The electro-hydraulic power steering unit has been replaced by an electric one. Park Sense is also available, and so is an acoustic windscreen, which reduces external noise.
