 Jeep Grand Cherokee The Most Awarded SUV Ever Is Even Better For 2014

Dhofar Automotive, the official distributors for Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and RAM in Oman, has officially launched the new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee in Oman. 

The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the most awarded SUV ever, once again redefines the premium SUV class, delivering an unprecedented combination of best-in-class fuel economy and driving range, a choice of leading powertrain options, legendary benchmark capability, world-class craftsmanship, premium on-road driving dynamics and a host of advanced user-friendly technology and safety features.
 
Highlighting the proud history of the Grand Cherokee, Jack Rodencal, Managing Director of Chrysler Group Middle East said, “There have been four generations of Grand Cherokee, and over the last 20 years each generation has improved on the last. For the 2014 model year, Jeep has taken the industry’s most highly acclaimed SUV and elevated it to an even higher level. The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has now leapt even further ahead from its competitors by enhancing its unique elegance, efficiency, capability and technological features.”
 
Jack Rodencal added, “Styled for, and targeted at customers in the important mid-size SUV segment and with a high level of equipment on offer, drivers in the Sultanate will find it even more of a pleasure to drive - on road, off road and in all weather conditions.”
 
A new, refined exterior design, complete with new bi-xenon headlamps, with signature LED daytime running lamps (DRL) on all models add to its premium appearance. Interior luxury is achieved with premium amenities including Natura leather, exotic open-pore wood trim and new colour offerings. New steering wheel paddle shifters offer improved driver control both on- and off-road, including Electronic Range Select when using Selec-Speed Control in extreme off-road situations.
 
Legendary Jeep capability comes courtesy of two available 4x4 systems (Quadra-Trac II and Quadra Drive II), Jeep’s Quadra-Lift air suspension system and class-leading Selec-Terrain traction management system. The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee also boasts best-in-class towing of up to 3,266 kgs.
 
The new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee comes equipped with increased and improved safety and security features - more than 60 in total - including Front Park Assist, Forward Collision Warning with Crash Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control and Selec-Speed Control - as well as an array of advanced user-friendly technology features such as the latest Uconnect 8.4” touchscreen radio with integrated climate and infotainment controls and a 7” customer configurable multiview display cluster.
 
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is equipped with the 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine as well as the 5.7-litre HEMI V8 - both engine options being paired to a new eight-speed transmission.
 
The new, robust and durable eight-speed transmission in addition to enhancing fuel economy, delivers quicker acceleration and precise, smooth shifting, enhancing ride quality to luxury car levels. An additional benefit is a lower crawl ratio to aid in climbing over - or through - tough obstacles, when equipped with a two-speed transfer case.
 
Another contributor to the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s improved fuel economy is a new Eco Mode that optimises the transmission’s shift schedule and, in V8 models, Fuel Saver cylinder deactivation. In addition, the Eco Mode activates Grand Cherokee’s air suspension system, lowering it to ‘Aero Ride Height’ when the vehicle speed remains between 83.7 kmph and 90 kmph, or exceeds 90 kmph. Eco Mode is automatically engaged on vehicle startup - a button on the centre stack that allows drivers to disengage Eco Mode if more spirited performance is desired.
 
The new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is available now at Dhofar Automotive showrooms across the Sultanate.
