2013 Facelift

The most obvious change to the Grand Cherokee is at the front, where the grille is now shorter and flanked by a set of slimline LED headlamps. At the rear the Jeep badge has been made more prominent while once again the tail-lamps have been enhanced also.

A new Summit trim level has been introduced, offering enhanced luxury at the top of the trim line up. The main instrument pack now sports a digital screen with multiple configurations and the UConnect and upgraded hifi is now available.

That new eight-speed transmission has had a positive effect on emissions, economy and refinement too, while there's a range of new safety assist systems making it the safest Grand Cherokee so far.
