Jeep has detailed the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk after images of the new off-road SUV leaked on the internet last week.
The Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, much like the Renegade Trailhawk and Cherokee Trailhawk, applies off-road oriented trim and parts to Jeep’s popular mid-size SUV. Standard is Jeep’s Quadra-Drive II 4×4 system, a rear electronic limited-slip differential, Quadra-Lift air suspension (specially tuned to for off-road driving) and Selec-Speed Control with hill ascent. There’s also underbody skidplates for when things get a bit rocky, along with optional Mopar rock rails.
From an exterior standpoint, the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk is set apart from standard models with red recovery hooks, red Trailhawk and Trail Rated badges, an anti-glare black hood decal and a Neutral Gray painted roof rack and mirror caps. 18-inch wheels shod in Goodyear Adventure off-road tires are standard, while 20-inch units are available as an option.
Occupants of the cabin will be greeted with black leather and suede seats, red contrasting stitching, Piano black trim and a Trailhawk steering wheel badge. Jeep’s 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system is standard and has been upated with Trailhawk exclusive content such as articulation, suspension height, and four-wheel-drive display modes.
The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk will go on sale later this year and will be available in Redline Red, Velvet Red, Bright White, Billet Silver, Rhino, Granite Crystal, and Diamond Black Crystal. Pricing has yet to be announced.
