FAC Releases 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Fact Sheet

On September 1, 2017 Fiat Chrysler Automobiles released the official fact sheet for all Jeep Grand Cherokee models of 2018. Rairdon’s Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram of Kirkland is excited about several of the announcements made in the recent FAC press release. Jeep is celebrating 25 years as the most-awarded SUV ever. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is the very definition of luxury SUV. The 4×4 experience is everything when we think about Jeep, and we are excited to see that 2018 will once again place the Jeep Grand Cherokee as the very pinnacle of award winning SUV performance.

Jeep 4×4 capabilities are legendary and there are no exceptions in 2018. With the Jeep’s Quadra-Lift air suspension system and Selec-Terrain traction management system, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is out to crush the competition once again. With 7,400lbs of best-in-class towing, and a crawl ratio of 44.1:1, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is a versatile powerhouse. Whether you’re hauling your 4-wheelers to the woods, or just taking the family on a road trip, the Jeep Grand Cherokee covers all the bases.

So what are some of the announcements for 2018 that Rairdon’s Dodge Chrysler Jeep of Kirkland are so excited about? For starters the model lineup for 2018 is outstanding.

For 2018, the Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup consists of seven models:

  • Laredo

The New 2018 Trackhawk

 

In 2018 we will see the return of all the trusted and reliable models for the Jeep Grand Cherokee. We are especially excited to see the New 2018 Trackhawk on that list. The new Trackhawk model is the most powerful SUV ever. It will be joining the Jeep Grand Cherokee family alongside the already capable and luxurious Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and Summit.

The Grand Cherokee SRT and Trackhawk models feature an aggressive, functional exterior design that optimizes airflow and cooling with the signature seven-slot upper front grille flanked by adaptive, bi-xenon headlamps.

Interior luxury is achieved with premium amenities, including Natura leather, exotic open-pore wood trim and unique color offerings.

Each Grand Cherokee model will come equipped with unique power and performance packages which FAC highlighted in their press release.
