2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Release Date, Price, Interior, Engine – The new 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee was initially expected to be revamped and given an all-new look. In spite of the above sentiments, the auto maker has decided to give the vehicle another production strategy which we are going to see in a jiffy.
Anyone who thought that the new Cherokee would be an overhaul has simply lost the mark. The new vehicle will only make one or two changes over the previous version. This is a result of the success the previous version has in the market and the automobile company wouldn’t want to upset the market with a complete overhaul of the Cherokee.
The company will only include very few necessities that might have been a source of faults in the previous version. Additionally, new and improved exterior and interior features will also be included so that the massive sales spree might continue unaffected.
This is arguably one of the best SUV’s the market is looking forward to. Rumours allege that the upcoming new 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee is part of the company’s five year market plan which the company plans on utilising in order to pimp their luxury crossover line-up to new levels.
Exterior Redesign of The Car, Available Colors
The redesigns and changes that will come from the new 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee are expected to be subtle. The SUV will undoubtedly come with six trim levels that will include Laredo, Altitude, Limited, Summit, Overland and SRT.

Moreover, buyers should expect some refreshments on both the front and hind bumper. These redesigns and refreshments in its exterior are what will make the new Cherokee dissimilar to the previous model.
The new SUV will come with some new and exciting features according to sources privy to the company. Some of the distinguishing features will include 17” alloy wheels, full power accessories and remote start access, auto on/off headlights and fog lights with LED technology, etc.
