Priced at $84,450, the Grand Cherokee Summit is essentially based on the 3.0-litre EcoDiesel V6 S-Overland model, with the $1500 premium going towards plush new exterior styling elements and premium interior appointments.
The exterior is garnished by accented brightwork elements on the front fascia, restyled rear fascia with dual trapezoidal exhaust tips, 20-inch wheels, along with body-colour side sill cladding, wheel arches, mirror caps, and door handles.
As for interior appointments, the Summit cops the 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system with a Harmon Kardon premium audio system. The interior is upholstered in Natura Plus soft leather seats, and finished with suede-like headliner and Berber cargo and floor mats.
Customers also have the option of specifying the cabin with Laguna quilted leather seats, as well as leather-wrapped door panels, centre console and glove box.

“Positioned over the current refined Overland trim, Summit goes one step further in providing the ultimate luxury a Grand Cherokee can offer in an area of the market where Europeans are very strong,” said Guillaume Drelon, Director, Brand and Product Strategy.
“Without compromising Jeep legendary capabilities, Summit is providing an extra edge of adventure, bringing to market the best combination of on-road refinement, technology and comfort with best in class off-road capabilities.”
