THE introduction of the new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk headlines the changes to the 2017 Grand Cherokee range, but all models have mechanical revisions and fresh front-end styling, and many have new equipment.

As before, the range starts with a 3.6-litre petrol V6, which gains a new variable valve-lift and valve-timing system that tweaks power from 210kW to 213kW and lowers fuel use by four per cent.

There’s a more efficient eight-speed auto for the diesel engine (and 4x2 petrol V6) and electric power steering across the range. The 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 remains the default engine across the range, which still includes the ‘hot-rod’ SRT with its potent 344kW 6.4-litre petrol V8.

Interior upgrades include a new touchscreen and a new gear shifter, while an ‘acoustic’ windscreen and side glass brings lower cabin noise levels. New safety equipment includes lane-departure warning, while new convenience features include park assist.
