The Jeep® brand heralds a new era of refinement for Grand Cherokee with launch of 5-seater SUV in the Middle East

Dubai, 16 September 2022 – Thirty years after introducing its breakthrough premium SUV to the

 world, by driving it up the steps and through a window at Cobo Hall in Detroit, the Jeep® brand ushers in a new era of premium refinement with the launch of its 5-seater, fifth-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The all-new 5-seater alongside the recently launched Grand Cherokee L (7-seater), build on the Jeep® brand legacy as the most awarded SUV ever; bringing an all-new architecture, exterior design and interior with world-class craftsmanship and first-to-market technologies to the Middle East’s full-size SUV segment.

“The all-new 5-seater Grand Cherokee with its cutting-edge technology, stylish interiors and unparalleled 4×4 capability has entered a new era of refinement with a more premium driving experience.” said Marco Melani, Managing Director, American Brands at Stellantis ME.

“With one of the strongest Jeep® brand communities in the world, the Middle East’s explorers and urbanites have enjoyed adventures with their Grand Cherokee for four generations.  Now with the fifth generation, the Jeep® brand takes premium to the next level with an offering that is the epitome of untamed sophistication.”

The all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup consisting of four models – Laredo, Limited, Overland and Summit Reserve – available now at dealerships in some Middle Eastern markets including the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, Iraq and Bahrain.

What’s new for Jeep® Grand Cherokee

After more than 7 million global sales of the Grand Cherokee, the most acclaimed SUV ever continues to set the standard. The newest iteration of the Jeep Grand Cherokee line-up has been designed, and engineered, to deliver even more of what has made this Jeep® SUV a true global icon in the premium SUV segment, including legendary capability, class-leading space and versatility and advanced safety features.

The Grand Cherokee’s all-new architecture and sculpted aerodynamic body style combine to improve vehicle performance, safety and reliability, while significantly reducing vehicle weight, noise and vibration.

Designed to maximize overall passenger safety, comfort and convenience, Grand Cherokee packs a powerful punch with next-generation features and technologies that make it a standout in the full-size SUV segment.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee also delivers unrivaled capability along with composed on-road driving dynamics. The legendary off-road capability begins courtesy of three 4×4 systems – Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II, and Quadra-Drive II with rear electronic limited slip differential (ELSD). All three systems are equipped with an active transfer case to improve traction by moving torque to work with the wheel with the most grip.

The class-exclusive Jeep Quadra-Lift air suspension, now with electronic semi-active damping, delivers up to 10.9 inches (27.7 cm) of ground clearance and 24 inches (61 cm) of water fording. The system automatically adjusts the shock tuning to changing road conditions for enhanced comfort, stability, and control, or may be controlled manually with console controls, and features five height settings for optimum ride performance.

The class-leading Selec-Terrain traction management system lets customers choose the on- or off-road setting for optimum 4×4 performance. This feature electronically coordinates 4×4 torque split, braking and handling, steering and suspension systems, throttle control, transmission shift, transfer case, traction control, stability control, antilock brake system (ABS) and steering feel.

The all-new Grand Cherokee boasts class-leading 3,265kg max towing with the available 5.7-liter V-8, rated at 357 horsepower and 390 lb. Ft of torque. While the standard all-aluminum 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, rated at 293 horsepower and 260lb.-ft of torque, is lauded for its power and refinement, and rated for a towing capacity of up to 2,812kg.

Advanced technology with Uconnect 5

The fifth-generation Grand Cherokee has the most advanced technology features in its history, with Uconnect 5 – the latest Uconnect system offering up to three 10.1 inch (25.6 cm) and two 10.25 inch (26 cm) digital displays in the cabin and an intuitive user experience.

A front passenger screen offers co-pilot assistance with navigation, camera viewing and visual entertainment, while the digital rearview mirror, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and TomTom navigation ensure a premium driving experience alongside greater connectivity with two Bluetooth-enabled phones paired simultaneously.

The new fifth-generation line-up also brings Amazon Fire TV built-in, enabling passengers to stream videos, play games, listen to music, get information and watch downloaded content – all while on the road.

A state-of-the-art McIntosh audio system is also available and features 19 custom-designed speakers (including a 10 inch / 25.4 cm subwoofer), 950 watts of power and a 17-channel amplifier. The Jeep® brand is currently the only automotive manufacturer in the world to carry a McIntosh system.
