“Nearly two decades ago, Jeep invented the premium sport-utility vehicle (SUV) segment with the introduction of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. More than 4 million sales later, Jeep improves the formula and hits the sweet spot of Jeep 4×4 capability and on-road refinement with the all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
The Grand Cherokee was launched in 1996 into the South African Market during which time it has achieved significant market penetration and defined the local SUV Market. It represents the culmination of 70 years of Jeep heritage” Guy Franken – Head of Marketing and Corporate Affairs, Chrysler South Africa.
Guy continues, “With the all-new 2011 Grand Cherokee, Jeep has created the benchmark, premium SUV.
Unique innovations such as our new Quadra-Lift air suspension system and Selec-Terrain traction control systems separate Jeep from the crowd locally and take the new Grand Cherokee to the next level of 4×4 capability.
The new generation of the iconic Jeep Grand Cherokee delivers the perfect blend of on-road refinement, superb craftsmanship, world-class design, improved fuel economy, innovative features and legendary, real-world capability now available in Southern Africa.”
The all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee delivers premium on-road performance while maintaining the Jeep brand’s legendary four-wheel-drive, torque-on-demand two-speed transfer case and towing capability. It also offers improved fuel economy and a world-class interior cabin.
The all-new 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 premium on-road handling and comfort.
