FCA India has launched the ‘petrol’ version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee in India at Rs 75.15 lakh (exshowroom, New Delhi). The company has also announced upgrades in the entire range of luxury SUVs along with new prices, thereby offering more value to the Indian customers.
Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit (Petrol), the latest addition to the Jeep range of SUVs, is powered by the award-winning 289.6 PS, 347 Nm, 3.6-litre Pentastar engine, married to an upgraded eight-speed paddle shift automatic transmission.
