The 75th Anniversary model adds $2500 to the Limited model on which it’s based. Add $500 for green paint. Leather is included, as are bronze body hardware and orange exterior and interior accents. The 75th Grand Cherokee’s subtle but worthwhile mechanical changes will be part of the entire Grand Cherokee range later this year.
Nothing really new apart from the adoption of electric power steering and some aluminium suspension components.
Power is up a smidgen thanks to changes on the valve train and exhaust. Engine stop-start yields slightly better fuel economy in city driving.
Suspension improvements give an edge in ride comfort compared to the Limited. It has better bump absorption, less jiggling, more predictable drive feel on and off road and smoother ride on a range of surfaces.
Minor changes inside and outside but, without having the current model alongside, it’s difficult to pick the new grille, lights, bumper and 20-inch wheel design.
