While Chrysler Australia are being coy about local specification prior to its official launch we know it will be equipped with a high-tech Hill Decent Control, the new Selec-Terrain system which has five settings for varied conditions including auto, mud/sand, rock, snow and sport.
An all-new Quadra-Lift air suspension system will also be available on selected models. The Quadra-Lift system provides up to an additional 105mm lift span either automatically or manually via the console controls, ideal for those extreme conditions.
Under the bonnet, the Grand Cherokee will be the first vehicle in Australia to receive the all-new Pentastar 210kW 3.6-litre V6 engine, with the legendary 259kW 5.7L Hemi V8 also available, featuring 4-cylinder-mode fuel-saving technology. Chrysler is claiming a 10 percent improvement in fuel consumption.
