Jeep Brings Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and Summit to NY

Posted by: Lydia Siu onMarch 24th, 2016

Jeep came out in full force today at the New York Auto Show bringing two new variants of their Grand Cherokee. The off road trail ready Trailhawk took a four year break but is finally back, and the comfort and luxury focused Summit were both debuted.

The Trailhawk name means Jeep has done some significant upgrades to the Grand Cherokee to make it more trail ready than ever. Suspension has been beefed up using a fully custom air suspension system giving ample lift and clearance for those unpredictable trails. Ground clearance improves 0.4 inches to 10.8 inches total. The bottom of the Grand Cherokee is now protected with a heavy duty skid plate under the engine compartment to ensure all the vitals like the oil pan doesn’t get damaged by large rocks.

Jeep also brought out their Grand Cherokee Summit which is a comfort and luxury centric version of the Cherokee. The front fascia of the Summit edition boasts upgrades that can be found on the 2016 Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary. Rounding out the luxury additions, the interior is fully trimmed in leather and Jeep offers four different color choices. The headliner is wrapped in suede, while small touches like illuminated door sills, center console and door panels give that high end feel.

Look for the all new 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and Summit to hit the showroom floors later this summer.
