2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee S Limited unveiled in UK

Article by Christian A., on June 24, 2012

Jeep is relying on the Jeep Grand Cherokee S Limited (a new variant of its 4x4 flagship) to attract the younger crowd. The sport-focused Jeep Grand Cherokee S Limited is one of three new models that will be added to Jeep’s lineup in Europe. The other models are limited edition models -- the Wrangler Mountain and the Compass Black Edition.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee S Limited was first shown in March as a design study at the Geneva motor show. Jeep added an extra trim level to the current range, which comprises the Laredo, Limited, Overland and the new range-topping performance SRT variant. This new addition is positioned a bit lower than Overland when it comes to specification.

However, this brings additional sporting accents to the exterior and interior design. Choosing the Grand Cherokee S Limited means that the car gets a black gloss front grille surround, some black headlamp bezels, exhaust tips and a set of 20in black gloss alloys. The roof rack was replaced with roof moulding covers so that the Jeep would get a look that’s more streamlined. The SUV’s rear would receive a diffuser.

Inside this new 4x4, we will see a leather-covered perforated heated steering wheel as well as ventilated sports-styled Nappa leather and suede seats. Its carbonfibre accents are built into the instrument and door trim panels. It also gets racing-style pedals.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee S Limited is offered with a 3.0-litre turbodiesel V6 that delivers 238bhp at 4000rpm and 406lb ft at 1800-2800rpm. It is coupled with a five-speed automatic transmission. In addition, the 3.0-litre CRD powertrain is available in a low-output version, delivering 187bhp at 4000rpm and 325lb ft of torque across 1600-2800rpm.
