Jeep Grand Cherokee S-Limited, S-Overland special editions announced

Jeep Australia is introducing two special editions for the long-toothed Grand Cherokee range, called the S-Limited and S-Overland. They join the showroom to help boost value and appeal for the iconic SUV.

The S-Limited comes with a 5.7-litre HEMI V8 that churns out 259kW and 520Nm, matched to an eight-speed auto with four-wheel drive. To help set the edition apart from the rest, Jeep has fit a set of 20-inch Granite Crystal aluminium wheels, as well as the Performance Sports Hood (bonnet) from the SRT, black trimmings, dual black chrome exhaust tips, and body-coloured wheel arches and door handles.

For the S-Overland, buyers receive the 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 engine, which produces 184kW and 570Nm. This version also comes with 20-inch Granite Crystal wheels, but gets premium accent cladding for the bumper bars, darkened taillights, and Granite exterior highlights.

Both models offer a 3500kg towing capacity, and come with a comprehensive Uconnect touch-screen media interface for the dash. Going for the S-Overland also adds SRT sports seats, as well as a 19-speaker Harman/Kardon sound system with a sub-woofer. There’s also black wood trimmings, while the S-Limited gets ‘liquid titanium’ trimmings. Speaking about the additions to the lineup, Guillaume Drelon, director, brand & product strategy, said:

“We’re thrilled to offer two new limited edition Jeep Grand Cherokees giving customers a choice of either a more premium, refined and fuel efficient option with the S-Overland 3.0L V6 Diesel or a high performance model with the S-Limited HEMI V8 Engine. Both provide a class leading 3,500kg towing capacity.”

Overall value is boosted thanks to the extra features, with the S-Limited adding over $9000 in features and only demanding a $4500 price hike over the base car. Meanwhile the S-Overland represents $15,000 worth of features for only $8500 more than the equivalent base car. Just 100 examples of the S-Limited are up for grabs, and 120 examples of the S-Overland. See below for the starting prices (excludes on-road costs), and further below for the highlight features.
