The Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel Trail Warrior is the last concept that will be unveiled at the 2014 Easter Jeep Safari after the Cherokee Dakar Concept, Wrangler Level Red Concept, Wrangler Maximum Performance Concept, Cherokee Adventurer Concept and the Wrangler MOJO Concept.
Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel Trail Warrior Concept takes the well-known SUV a step further thanks to a bunch of Jeep Performance Parts and Mopar accessories. The first difference saw by us when looking at the concept was the bigger height as the SUV is equipped with a Quadra-Lift air suspension.
Thanks to the Mojave Sand exterior color, the Satin Black is highlighted on the front grille, hood, lower front fascia, door handles, mirror caps, wheel flares and badging. Moreover, the prototype 20-inch cast aluminum wheels in Satin Black complement the exterior design, while the All-Terrain BFGoodrich tires provide a rugged look.
This unique Grand Cherokee features a 44:1 crawl ratio. A prototype Mopar roof basket is the perfect feature for those who are planning a long trip in the mountains.
Inside, there is a black-and-tan dual tone scheme, while gloss black accents are found on the HVAC bezels, steering wheel, instrument panel and other appointments. Other highlights are the Mopar all-weather floor mats, door sills, lighted Jeep logo sills, a pedal kit and a cargo tray.
The current generation of the Jeep Grand Cherokee made a great impression when it was launched, thanks to its upscale design that was able to properly communicate its rugged capabilities. For the 2014 model year, the new Grand Cherokee builds on the exterior and interior strengths of the current generation and take them into a new level.
Mark Allen, Head of Jeep Design at Chrysler Group LLC, remarked that for 2014, they took the design of the Grand Cherokee higher by giving it a more premium and more rugged appearance. He quipped that the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has been updated with a luxurious new design as well as with premium decorations and technological features usually not found in the full-size SUV segment.
Jeep has granted all trim levels of the 2014 Grand Cherokee with a more premium and more recognizable appearance. All models feature an upper grille that is shorter in height as well as slimmer headlamps. Likewise, Jeep raised the lower front fascia slightly and made the fog lights more elevated and more pronounced. These design changes give the Grand Cherokee a more prominent look while providing a considerable ground clearance.
On the rear, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is defined by a larger rear spoiler, larger rear lamps with signature LED lighting, and a re-sculpted tailgate offering greater visibility. The rear end is also defined by a more pronounced Jeep badge located on the tailgate between the rear lamps. Each model has its own lower rear fascias while Limited, Overland and Summit models are provided with dual exhaust tips as standard.
