The cabin is further enhanced by the suede-like headliner, berber cargo and floor mats, backlit ‘Summit’ sill plates, NaturaPlus soft leather seats and a suite of standard gear. The latter counts the 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a Harman Kardon audio, active noise cancellation and a panoramic sunroof. Optionally, customers can order Laguna quilted leather seats with contrast stitching and a rear-seat entertainment system.

A suite of safety systems, such as the front and rear parking sensors, reversing camera, forward collision warning plus, lane departure warning plus, rear cross path detection, blind spot monitoring, park assist, brake assist and adaptive cruise control, also come as standard.

Powering the 2019 Grand Cherokee Summit is a 3.0-liter V6 diesel that kicks out 247 HP (250 PS) and 570 Nm (420 lb-ft) of torque, paired to a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission with low-range and permanent four-wheel drive system with Rock, Snow, Mud, Sand and Auto driving modes. Finally, the air suspension allows users to choose between five ride heights.

    I’m not sure if that price tag is really justified. I mean at least through the air system suspension on the summit only. They can do that. FCA has no shortage of parts, RAM has it.

    IMHO FCA should price Jeeps from $15K to $150K. Go after Kia all the way up to Range Rover.
