Jeep has launched its Grand Cherokee into the European market with a starting price of €52,200. This model is currently only offered in Overland trim, the highest available on the American market.

The V6 results to a 0-62mph acceleration time of 9.1 seconds and it can hit a top speed of 206 km/h or 127 US mph (with an average consumption of 11.4 l/100 km or mpg 20 mpg and 265 g / km CO2).

The 5.7-liter V8 does slightly better, pushing the Jeep to hit 100 km/h in 8.7 seconds and attain a top speed of 225 km/h (140 mph), while getting 14.1 l/100 km (16 mpg) on the combined run.

In Overland trim, the Grand Cherokee features active bi-xenon headlights, sunroof, powered tailgate, Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control, traction control, stability control for trailer towing and seven airbags.

The Grand Cherokee Overland V6 is priced from €52,200 to €63,800 for the V8.
