As it turns out, Jeep is going to bring not one, but two new versions of the Grand Cherokee in New York, with the second model to be the premium Summit.
Evidently, the American company wants to offer a more upmarket experience with the Grand Cherokee Summit, bringing their new model closer to more expensive SUVs like the Range Rover.
On the outside, the posh Grand Cherokee now features a new front grille, LED fog lamps, an updated front bumper, a set of 20in polished alloy wheels and plenty of satin chrome trimmings to complete the new look.
Inside, the seats are dressed in what looks like a dove-color leather with dark pipping, while the dashboard, center console and door panels are all trimmed in leather too, showcasing the determination of Jeep to offer a true premium version of the Grand Cherokee.
Expect the levels of equipment for the new Summit to include all the bells and whistles Jeep can throw in it, including a full array of active safety electronic systems.
We will know more once the car will be officially revealed at the New York Auto Show, next to the Trailhawk edition that we first saw on Thursday night.
