2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit Brings Hand-Crafted Leather And Premium Styling

Jeep is expanding the range of the 2017 Grand Cherokee with the premium Summit model in a move to push their biggest model yet into the upper corner of the market.

The company stuffed the Grand Cherokee with more features than ever and updated its looks with a new front fascia, grille, LED head lamps and a set of 20in polished alloy wheels.

“Our new Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit is in direct response to consumers who continue to ask for even more luxury, craftsmanship and standard premium features in a full-size SUV packed with capability,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand.

The interior is now fully wrapped in leather, with the dashboard, center console and door cards upholstered in Nappa leather and the seats in Laguna leather, offered in four color schemes.

Other features include a suede headliner, lighted door sills, an acoustic windshield, an active noise cancellation system, thick Berber carpet mats and a 19-speaker Harmon/Kardon audio system.

The new Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit will also be offered with headlamp washers, Blind Spot Detection, Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control and, for the first time, Lane Departure Warning and Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist as standard.

Each Summit model comes fitted with Jeep’s Quadra-Drive II 4×4 system with ELSD as well as Quadra-Lift air suspension and Selec-Speed Control.

Customers will be able to choose between Light Brown Stone, True Blue, Bright White, Ivory Pearl, Granite Crystal, Velvet Red, Diamond Black Crystal and Luxury Brown for the exterior of the most luxurious Jeep model ever.

      Not to mention fatter, more van like than SUV, but the inside is still very tight. Very bad design. Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge are extremely lazy, they all stick to the same shit over and over again for many years.
