Boldness and grandeur define the Grand Cherokee, Jeep that maintains the tradition of technological innovation and collects admirers around the world
December 4, 2019 - A car that made its first public appearance going up the stairs and breaking the entrance glass of the Detroit Showroom had no way of not becoming a reference in the automotive universe. The Jeep Grand Cherokee did a lot more than that. With its launch in 1992, it was responsible for creating a new design for the luxury SUV segment. Since then, it has become the world's most award-winning sport utility vehicle, synonymous with advanced technology even to this day and, in its nearly three decades of life, has won a legion of fans all over the planet. Not to mention that it is the best-selling Jeep of all times, surpassing five million units around the planet.
In Brazil, the current generation of the Grand Cherokee has just received a package filled with semi-autonomous technologies with features such as adaptive cruise control (ACC), front collision warning system with automatic emergency braking (FCW+), lane changing alert system with correction assistant (LaneSense) and semi-automatic parking (Park Assist) - items present in the Jeep Compass.
Offered in a single version (Limited Diesel), the Grand Cherokee 2020 uses a reputable 3.0 V6 turbo diesel engine of 241 hp and 56.1 kgfm, combined with the eight-speed automatic shift and the famous Quadra-Trac II full-wheel drive, with crawl ratio capacity of 44:1 with reduced capacity, which can transfer 100% of torque to the rear axle. There is also a descent control (HDC) and Selec-Terrain traction system with five modes: Auto, Snow, Sand, Mud and Rock.
The Grand Cherokee began to be officially imported to Brazil in 1994 and became coveted even by those who could not yet drive at the time. "My relationship with jeep is a lifetime story, because ever since I was a kid, I was smitten by the Grand Cherokee", reveals product and beauty development consultant Paul Assumpção.
