On the mechanical side, Jeep made a bunch of improvements to the new Grand Cherokee. A smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission replaced the outgoing five-speed gearbox along with various improvements to the four-wheel-drive systems. The high-performance SRT and fuel-sipping turbocharged diesel engines are getting much of the spotlight (and rightfully so), but the bulk of the 2014 Grand Cherokee sales will be V6 engines…and that’s a strong powerhouse in its own right.
As per the cosmetics, the exterior has experienced some noticeable changes including the front grill, rear tail lamps, a larger liftgate spoiler and a few more wheel selections. The interior of the new Jeep has had a face-lift as well with a newly designed steering wheel, paddle shifters, instrument display, 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen, Uconnect Access system, and more.
