New 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee at URSE Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM of Fairmont for Fairmont, WV
As you probably already know, Jeep Grand Cherokee is the most awarded premium SUV ever, no easily won title! For 2017, Jeep only keeps the awards coming by somehow finding ways to finesse the Grand Cherokee exterior design from last year with available bi-xenon headlamps with exclusive LED daytime running lamps (DRL). The SRT models feature a new, distinctive front fascia with fog lamps, a grille and a signature leather interior package. There are four available 4x4 systems, plus Jeep's Quadra-Lift air suspension system and the popular 'Selec-Terrain' traction management system. Grand Cherokee leads the pack with best-in-class towing of 7,400 pounds and a physics-bending crawl ratio of 44.1:1. The new-for-2017 'Trailhawk' model features red rear/front tow hooks, standard rugged 18-inch Goodyear Adventure off-road tires with Kevlar reinforcement, and also red accented Trailhawk/Trail-Rated badges. Much more details on that model down below! A lot of new equipment was added for 2017, including the fact that a rearview camera and rear park sensors become standard on all 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee models. The 2017 Laredo, Limited, Overland, and Trailhawk models all proudly display the front fascia and seven-slot Jeep grille that was on last year's 75th Anniversary edition.

The available 5.7-liter V-8 forges ahead with 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque, plus has a best-in-class towing capacity of 7,400 lbs. The SRT model has a powerful 6.4-liter V-8, with Fuel Saver Technology, that manufactures 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.

Grand Cherokee SRT features 8 drive modes that allow owners the ability to personalize their drive experience whether its on-road or on-track. Drive modes are pre-set with a 1 touch center-console button for Auto, Sport, Track, Snow and Tow settings. There is also a Custom, ECO and Valet mode as well. The new Trailhawk model has standard off-road capability features, including Jeep's Quadra-Drive II 4x4 system with rear Electronic Limited-slip Differential (ELSD) for all powertrains, a Trailhawk-specific version of Grand Cherokee's Quadra-Lift air suspension that improves suspension settings, and also has the Selec-Speed Control with Hill-ascent/Descent Control.
