2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk – New Details & Photos

Earlier this week, we saw the first images of the new Grand Cherokee Trailhawk surfacing, but today we got some fresh details and photos of the upcoming rugged version of the big Jeep.

As with the Cherokee and Renegade versions, the Trailhawk version of the Grand Cherokee will be the most off-road capable model of the range, featuring a unique version of Jeep’s air suspension that offers a longer suspension travel and better articulation and a Quadra-Drive 4×4 system with a rear electronic limited slip differential.

The new Grand Cherokee Trailhawk will also come with a removable lower front fascia in order to offer increased approach, breakover and departure angles over the regular model. Furthermore, the biggest Trailhawk in Jeep’s range will offer up to nearly 11 inches of ground clearance in the suspension’s highest setting and 18-inch wheels shod in reinforced off-road tire.

That decal on the hood is not just for show as it’s supposed to reduce the glare while the red tow hooks front and rear are bespoke to this model.

The cabin has been upgraded with seats dressed in leather and suede with red stitching, a brushed piano black trim and a gunmetal finish to painted interior parts. The updated infotainment will project new off road-related info like the suspension height, wheel articulation and the selected driving mode.

The new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk is going to debut at next week’s New York Auto Show.

    Great looking vehicle like most Jeeps. Driven a Grand Cherokee Laredo (base Grand Cherokee) and it was awesome. Totally understand why people love Jeeps.
