luxury suvs selling for the same price as the new jeep grand cherokee

The new Jeep Grand Cherokee L is now available in three specifications in South Africa, with pricing starting at R1,299,900.

The Cherokee gets its power from a 3.6-litre naturally aspirated V6 petrol engine – the same configuration found in Jeep’s other recently launched vehicle, the Gladiator bakkie.

This powertrain provides the SUV with 210kW and 344Nm, allowing a maximum towing capacity of 2,813kg.

As for fuel consumption, the 4×4’s eight-speed automatic transmission helps it to achieve an average usage of 10.6/100km, an expected figure for such a large powerplant.

Depending on the model chosen, the Cherokee will also receive a limited-slip differential, integrated off-road cameras, and up to five driving modes comprising Auto, Sport, Rock, Snow and Mud/Sand.

Ground clearance, meanwhile, is listed at 277mm, and the SUV has an approach angle of 20.6 degrees, a break-over angle of 18.2 degrees, and a departure angle of 21.5 degrees.

The driving experience is further complemented by a suite of high-end features including tri-zone climate control, ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, wireless phone charging, an 8.4-inch infotainment screen, blind-spot monitoring, active lane management, rear cross-path detection, 360-degree cameras, and adaptive cruise control.

This is also the first time that the Grand Cherokee is available with seven seats, and the 481-litre boot is able to accommodate up to 1,238 litres of luggage when these rear seats are folded.
