New, tougher, Grand Cherokee on its way
Fans of Jeep’s already toughlooking and torqueing Grand Cherokee rejoice, the even stauncher Trailhawk version is on its way here.
Grand Cherokee Trailhawk models are equipped with a host of standard off-road features, including Jeep’s Quadra-Drive II 4x4 system with rear Electronic Limited Slip Differential ( ELSD), a unique version of Grand Cherokee’s Quadra-Lift air suspension – developed for Trailhawk – that offers improved articulation and total suspension travel, as well as Selec-Speed Control with Hill Ascent Control. Skid plates and a Trailhawk-specific anti-glare hood decal are also standard.
Approach angles on the Jeep Grand Cherokee are 29.8 degrees or 36.1 degrees when the lower front fascia is removed for severe off-roading, while the breakover angle is 27.1 degrees and the departure angle is 22.8 degrees. Grand Cherokee Trailhawk models offer up to 10.8 inches of ground clearance.
The Grand Cherokee Trailhawk can be distinguished from the outside by a front fascia and seven-slot Jeep grille that debuted on the 2016 Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary edition, Trailhawk-signature red tow hooks in the front and rear, 18-inch Goodyear Adventure off-road tyres, new Trailhawk and Trail Rated badges with red accents.
Inside Trailhawk models feature a unique black interior with leather and suede performance seats for comfort and control, red accent stitching, brushed Piano Black appliques, gunmetal finish on all painted interior parts, a Trailhawk badge on the Jeep steering wheel, and red accent stitching on the seats, doors and console.
A standard 8.4-inch Uconnect touch screen includes updated off-road pages showing wheel articulation and other vehicle 4x4 capability features, such as suspension height and 4x4 and Selec-Terrain modes.
As standard the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk is fitted with a 3.0 litre turbo-diesel engine which produces 184kW of peak power and 550 NM of peak torque.
