just saw the cherokee's interior [lol] dashboard comparison with the ford endeavour which costs 1\4th of the cherokee's price.
Looking at the tech specs of these jeeps, I felt Endeveaour, fortuner and Pajero Sport are better off buying and spending on them for rest of the ownership instead of pouring money into any of these Jeeps, doesn't sum up to the point isn't it?

Or Did they overshot their thinking seeing the purchasing power of Indians to keep such prices? Bubba Price is the main tool to play in India.

Thanks for those lovely pics Akash, Everything looks perfect in those jeeps and The Grand Cherokee interiors and steering wheel is yummm! but very sorry for their pricing.

Just a few questions:

Did you try sitting in the Grand Cherokee's rear seat? Is the thigh support enough for tall people? Looking at the pics, I feel the seat is lowly places like in the Force One.

Does the Wrangler come only in petrol Avatar?

Uh well you can say that for the ones who has no idea about the internationalized brands, but once it hit the roads, it for sure will turn heads!

Thanks Vishwas, Actually you are correct on pricing, these products actually had luke-warm response due to their high prices.

Interiors space of Grand Cherokee wasn't quite overwhelming to be frank. Though I felt the under-thigh support to be just acceptable enough. So far with my experience of cars like X5, XC90, GLS, Q7 etc, the Grand Cherokee is not upto the mark in regards to interior space.

Does the Wrangler come only in petrol Avatar?
As I am aware, there is only 1 Diesel engine with AT in Wrangler Unlimited.

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.

The ‘Gen II’ automatic transmission is engineered to deliver improved overall performance resulting in less drag on the clutches.

This Gen II 8-speed paddle shift transmission will also be offered in the Diesel variants of the Grand Cherokee.

The New Jeep® Grand Cherokee Package

Besides the Gen II automatic transmission, the Grand Cherokee’s Limited and Summit variants now get the new 75th Anniversary fascia with enhanced ‘billet-like’ plating on the grille slots while the SRT gets upper and lower cooling intakes on the front fascia.

New alloys – 18-inch, high gloss silver painted aluminum will be standard on the Grand Cherokee Limited; 20-inch, polished aluminum with Technical Grey painted pockets standard on the Summit; 20-inch, full polished with satin clear coat, standard on the SRT and 20-inch Matte Black split spoke also available on the SRT.

Air suspension is introduced and will now be standard on both the Petrol and Diesel ‘Summit’ trim of the New Grand Cherokee and LED fog lamps will be standard across the entire range.

The New Jeep® Grand Cherokee range will now be available in six colours, with two new colour inclusions – Billet Silver Metallic, Bright White, Granite Crystal Pearl, True Blue Pearl, Velvet Red (new) and Diamond Black Crystal (new).

Electric Power Steering (EPS) replaces the electro-hydraulic power steering system for improved efficiency whilst vehicle dynamics can be adjusted providing three new select modes – Normal, Comfort and Sport.

’ParkSense’ – a rear park assist system now includes a Start / Stop function that applies the vehicle’s brakes.

All trims, across the range now get an acoustic windshield which helps reduce noise and enhance comfort.
