    The India-spec Grand Cherokee comes powered by a 272hp, 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

    Jeep Grand Cherokee: design, interior and features

    The Grand Cherokee wears a typical Jeep family look, and despite being quite different from the previous generation, it is still recognisable as a Grand Cherokee. On the inside, Jeep’s flagship SUV features a 10.1-inch passenger-side screen along with the 10.1-inch screen for the touchscreen infotainment. The Grand Cherokee is only available as a 5-seater, and we don’t get the three-row version known as the Grand Cherokee L that’s sold in international markets. In terms of features, the Grand Cherokee gets a heads-up display, wireless charging, panoramic sunroof, ADAS tech and eight airbags.

    The relatively modest Rs 1 lakh price hike means the Jeep Grand Cherokee undercuts most of its rivals like the Audi Q7 (from Rs 84.70 lakh); Mercedes-Benz GLE (from Rs 88.00 lakh); Range Rover Velar (Rs 89.41 lakh); Volvo XC90 (Rs 98.50 lakh) and BMW X5 (from Rs 98.50 lakh). It is only slightly more expensive than the Jaguar F-Pace which costs Rs 77.41 lakh.
