2021 brings important innovations to the most awarded SUV ever. Now in the 7-seater version it will be able to accommodate even the largest families in the best possible way.

The GrandCherokee has always been one of the ultimate symbols in terms of prestige SUV. It has always been associated with various types of awards and is in fact the most awarded SUV ever. 2021 gets off to a great start for Jeep with the debut of the 7-seater version of its Grand Cherokee . In this way, even the most generous families will be able to travel comfortably and if there is an extra guest, space will not be lacking.

The vehicle architecture has been totally revolutionized, and now the independent front and rear suspensions are developed with improved quadra-lift technology that allows the engine to be adaptive and ensure excellent off-road performance just as if we were on normal asphalt. .

Since the first model which was produced about 30 years ago, 7 million units have been sold all over the world . A number that may seem limited, but which must be well commensurate with the sector to which it belongs, certainly not linked to a concept of mass market, but rather to a concept of prestige SUV.

The four-wheel drive system has been further perfected, and the new quadra-lift air suspension, as well as the Select Terrain traction management system, also allow optimal management of the car on any road surface.

The car is made in the United States, precisely in Detroit , and will arrive in the second quarter of 2021 in the American showrooms first of all, in 4 different configurations. We will start from Laredo, to arrive at Limited, Overland and Summit.

For fans of the four-by-four, all-wheel drive will be split into three systems, each integrating seamlessly with the electronic limited slip rear differential.

The suspension on the Grand Cherokee does a truly exceptional job. The quadra-lift technology, with the addition of the adaptive electronic motorization, allows you to independently adjust the calibration of the shock absorbers in relation to the ground conditions.

All this in a totally automatic way, but which can also be managed with a manual control. There are 5 settings to adjust the height of the vehicle . Let's start with the normal version with 21 centimeters in height, which can be raised by 4 cm or even 6 cm in the Off Road 2 setting. In this way, 27.7 cm is reached and a wading capacity of 61 cm. The car also has the option of lowering itself every time the driver and other people get on board. In fact, the vehicle is lowered by 46 mm compared to normal mode to allow easy access and exit of the car. Finally, we have the Aero mode which allows you to lower about 2 cm, every time the car is at high speeds.

In terms of engine, the vehicle is equipped as standard with a 3.6-liter aluminum V6, capable of delivering 290 horsepower, alongside the more monstrous and award-winning 5.7-liter 357 horsepower V8 . An engine based on a cast iron crankcase and with aluminum cylinder heads for excellent performance, also thanks to the VVT system.

What about the active and passive safety systems? More than 110 systems have been installed on the car to protect the driver and various passengers with a level 2 autonomous driving system and 360 ° night vision cameras.

Once again, a sales and prestige leader like Jeep Grand Cherokee, has managed to completely renew itself by obtaining a product at the top of its category.
