Jeep will be introducing starting with today’s Detroit Motor Show the facelift for the Grand Cherokee. The 2014 model year comes with a redesigned front fascia adopting sportier headlamps that look similar to those on the Chrysler 300.
There’s also a restyled front bumper and a less flashy 7-slot front grille, while at the back we notice the new LED taillights, updated tail gate and a new look for the bumper. Inside the cabin its center stack has been revamped and boasts redesigned HVAC controls, while the infotainment system can get a 5-inch or an 8.4-inch touchscreen display.
Other than that, Jeep has installed a brand new steering wheel and a different instrument cluster with a seven-inch TFT color information screen. In addition, the Grand Cherokee’s transmission lever has been revised and draws its inspiration from the one fitted to the aforementioned Chrysler 300. Customers will be able to order the 2014MY with a new eight-speed automatic gearbox featuring paddle shifters which is available for the entire engine lineup.
The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee will be offered in the United States with a V6 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine that enables the off-roader to return an EPA-estimated 30 mpg US (7.8 liters / 100 km) on the highway.
