Jeep Grand Cherokee will have a shortened 2013 model year as 2014MY arrives

Article by Christian A., on June 25, 2012

If you are willing to buy a 2013MY Jeep Grand Cherokee you’d better hurry up as the company will have a shortened 2013 model year because in January the new 2014MY will arrive. That’s right, we are talking about that model fitted with a diesel engine but also an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Jeep dealers already began to take orders, for the 2013 Grand Cherokee, this month as the production will begin in August and will continue with the five-speed automatic transmission that is fitted on the SUV since 2010.

The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee will get the 3.0-liter diesel engines available on the models sold in Europe and delivering 241 hp and 406 pounds-feet of torque. Bolted to a five-speed transmission, the diesel engine delivers 23 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.

The eight-speed transmission produced by ZF will boost the fuel economy of the current model. For those who don’t know, the current Jeep Grand Cherokee powered by a petrol engine has a fuel economy of 17 mpg city/23 mpg highway.

Nearly 18 years ago, the world-class vehicle brand Jeep invented and shaped the premium SUV segment with the introduction of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. A couple of years and nearly 4 million dollars in sales later, Jeep decides to improve the formula and hits the bulls’ eye of on-roads capability and refinement with the all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Delivering exceptional on-road performance while still maintaining the brand’s legendary four-wheel drive torque-on-demand two-speed transfer case and towing capability give bragging rights to the all-new Grand Cherokee as a truly remarkable vehicle by Jeep.

Scott Kunselman, Vice-president—Jeep/Truck Product Team, Chrysler LLC, said that the company paid attention to the demands of its customers and the market. He added that its all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee hits the sweet spot of premium on-road performance and legendary class-leading Jeep efficiency.

State-of-the-art Quadra-Lift air suspension system delivers legendary Jeep off-road capability along with the new Selec-Terrain system that allows the driver to choose the drive system that best matches on or off-road driving conditions. New front and rear independent suspension systems deliver superior on-road handling and comfort.

The all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee is built and developed on a proven rear-wheel-drive unibody platform sharing the same underpinnings as the Mercedez-Benz ML. Jeep invented the SUV segment and its all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee is the next step in the evolution of the SUV, said Mike Accavitti, Director - Jeep, Chrysler and Dodge Brands. He exclaimed that Jeep innovations including Quadra-Lift air suspension and Selec-Terrain traction control are what separate the brand from the crowd.
