Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit Offers Luxury Features for Busy Professionals
Many people know Jeep vehicles for their off-roading capabilities, but far fewer people realize that Jeep makes luxury vehicles, too. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is the largest Jeep model offered by Jeep and it is available in a number of trims ranging from off-road capable trim to a high-end trim, the Grand Cherokee Summit, and it is a great option for busy professionals looking for a daily driver that provides space and modern tech.
The Grand Cherokee Summit is available with a 4×2 or 4×4 drivetrain and a few different engine options. The Grand Cherokee Summit comes standard with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The 3.6L engine gives the Grand Cherokee a max towing capacity of 6,200 pounds. Buyers that want a different engine can opt for a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine or a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine, which is available on 4×4 models. The 5.7-liter engine option increases the Grand Cherokee Summit’s power to 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque and boosts its towing capacity to 7,400 pounds.
The interior of the Grand Cherokee Summit houses a lot of the features that set it apart from the other Grand Cherokee trims. The Grand Cherokee Summit is equipped with heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats and leather-trimmed bucket seats,which can be upgraded to premium Laguna leather. The Grand Cherokee also has a wood and leather-wrapped premium steering wheel that’s heated, which is great for warming your hands up on a cool night or morning. For extra convenience, the floors are protected by luxury berber floor mats.
The tech features in the Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit are superb. There is a large 8.4-inch touchscreen and FCA’s most up-to-date and advanced built-in infotainment system called Uconnect. Uconnect offers users a number of features and apps, which are easily accessible from the driver’s seat. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are two apps that are included with Uconnect 4 and both apps make it possible for users to sync up their phone with the vehicle’s infotainment system and then use voice commands to send text messages and make phone calls. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are great convenient features for people who are always on the go because it allows them to use their phone to communicate without taking their hands off the steering wheel or their eyes of the road. Other apps included with the Grand Cherokee Summit include a complimentary five-year subscription to SiriusXM Travel Link and SiriusXM Traffic, and complimentary one-year subscriptions to SiriusXM Guardian Service and a SiriusXM radio subscription.
