Jeep Australia has introduced a new special edition Grand Cherokee ‘Summit’ to the range, adding unique highlights and lots of standard equipment.

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit-front

Based on the Grand Cherokee 3.0 CRD Overland, the Summit comes with the company’s 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 producing 184kW of power and 570Nm of torque. It offers an average fuel economy rating of 7.5L/100km, and is matched up to the new eight-speed automatic transmission.

With the Overland already being at the top of the range with lots of standard luxuries, the Summit adds even more to it. There’s a full NaturaPlus leather upholstery, suede-like trimmings, and some genuine wood inlays in the dash and door cards. The package also includes a premium harman/kardon 19-speaker surround sound system for enhanced in-car entertainment.

On the outside, the special edition is distinguished via a set of 20-inch alloy wheels, body-coloured wheel arches, a chrome bar in the front end, and a unique rear diffuser section with trapezoid exhaust tips. Summit badges complete the look.

Like the regular Overland, the Summit comes with extensive off-road-ready equipment, including Jeep’s renowned Quadra Lift air suspension with adjustable height settings, as well as an advanced SelecTerrain all-wheel drive response traction control system with various driving modes.
