Jeep adds petrol variant of Grand Cherokee to its India portfolio

Mumbai, 19 July 2017: Jeep has added the ‘petrol’ version of the Grand Cherokee to its range in India. Priced at INR 75.15 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi), it is powered by the 3.6-litre Pentastar engine that produces 289.6 PS peak power and 347 Nm of torque. The engine is mated with an upgraded ‘Gen II’ 8-speed paddle shift automatic transmission, which is engineered to deliver improved overall performance resulting in less drag on the clutches. Its optimized lubrication has improved clutch durability, shift response, consistency enabling smoother quality downshifts. The new transmission will also be offered in the Diesel variants of the Grand Cherokee.
