It is enough to say for the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee that it comes with more power and better mileage. Other than that, the company hasn’t prepared many changes. Only minor refreshments will be involved but the Jeep Grand Cherokee will still be a pretty extraordinary vehicle. Only one look at the vehicle is enough to conclude that it is capable, powerful, and safe machine. Those who had or have opportunity to drive this bold vehicle know that under its shiny skin are powerful powerplants. For the 2016 model year, the company hasn’t replaced them, but it added it more power and made them more fuel efficient. We bet that there are some changes in terms of exterior and interior. Let’s find out that together.
2016 Grand Cherokee Exterior
The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee is unmistakably different and its exterior design is what helps it to stand out from the crowd. The vehicle will keep its recognizable look and changes will be subtle for the 2016 model year, but if you though that there won’t be any changes, you’re wrong. Just like before, the Jeep Grand Cherokee will be offered in several different trim levels, each trim level offering maximum level of comfort and sophistication, but each one of them created for certain types of customers. There will be Summit, Limited, Laredo, Altitude, SRT, and Overland. The newcomer will be equipped with newly designed headlights and taillights with LED technology. There will also be fog lights with LED technology in case you deal with low visibility on the road. That’s not all. The new Jeep Grand Cherokee will ride on set of new, distinguishing 17-inch alloy wheels.
Interior of new 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee
For the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee, we expect more sophisticated and more versatile interior. For the cabin of the upcoming model, we can simply say that it is a combination of state-of-the-art technological features, good materials, and generous space. Since it has all of the three crucial aspects, we dare to proclaim it pure perfection. It offers 60/40 split second-row seats for maximum cargo space. Oh, yes, even the front passenger’s seat can be folded for maximum flexibility. Besides offering maximum cargo space, the cabin of the new Grand Cherokee also has a nice, covered top bin located above the radio for storage smaller items such as mobile phone or wallet. Among many other features, you will find a touchscreen display, dual zone air conditioning, park assist, keyless entry, lane departure warning, advanced brake assist, forward collision warning, etc.
2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Engine
Three engine options will be available for 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The base engine will be a venerable 3.6-liter V6 unit. Powered by this engine, the vehicle is capable of producing 295 hp. We must mention that the vehicle is fitted with ESS technology (fuel-saving engine stop-start). The second engine option is a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 which cranks out 360 hp. If you want an environmental-friendly engine, your choice should be an Eco-diesel 3.0-liter V-6 engine which achieves up to 30 mpg. All three engine options are coupled to a responsive eight-speed automatic transmission.
