Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit hits new luxe heights
Jeep’s thrown extra luxury appointments and bling at its biggest SUV.
Jeep has revealed a new permanent addition to the Grand Cherokee lineup in Australia, introducing the 2020 Grand Cherokee Summit.
Priced at $84,450 plus on-road costs, the diesel-powered Summit asks an additional $4000 over the Overland on which it is based but is seven-grand more affordable than the V8-engined SRT.
Proclaimed as the most luxurious model in the lineup, Jeep has packed the Summit with plenty of leather, technology, and exclusive trims to differentiate it. Outside are 20-inch platinum chrome alloys, platinum chrome trims, and a gloss black seven-slot grille upfront.
Inside is the seats are trimmed in NaturaPlus leather under a suede-style headliner and panoramic sunroof, and an 8.4-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is connected to a 19-speaker Harmon Kardon sound system. All seats are heated while the fronts have added ventilation, and the steering wheel can be warmed. Summit badges adorn the floor mats and are illuminated in the door sills. Further elevating the luxe experience is the $9950 Signature Leather pack which adds quilted leather seats and door trims (pictured above).
The standard safety system includes AEB, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitor, reversing camera with front and rear sensors, rear-cross traffic alert and parking assistant.
Underneath the bonnet is a 3.0-litre turbo diesel V6 engine producing 184kW of power and 570Nm of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel-drive runs on Jeep’s Quadra-Drive II system for added off-road ability and rides on air suspension.
