2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit Hits Jeep Showrooms This Summer

NEW YORK — The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit, a luxury version of the popular midsize SUV, will arrive at Jeep dealerships in late summer. It debuted at the 2016 New York Auto Show.

"We won't announce pricing until closer to launch in the summer," wrote Todd Goyer, a Jeep spokesman, in response to a query from Edmunds.

Designed to take on the Ford Explorer Platinum, Honda Pilot Elite and Toyota Highlander Limited Platinum models, the Grand Cherokee Summit is loaded with standard premium amenities.

They include auto-folding power mirrors, headlight washers, blind-spot detection, forward-collision warning, adaptive cruise control and lane-departure warning and parallel and perpendicular park assist.

The Summit comes with a standard 4x4 system.

It is equipped with a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine. Optional engines include a 5.7-liter V8 and a 3.0-liter Ecodiesel V6. All engines are linked to a standard eight-speed automatic transmission.

Exterior changes include an updated front fascia, grille and LED fog lamps, with new 20-inch polished-aluminum wheels.

The cabin features a new Laguna leather interior in Indigo and Sky Gray, one of four color treatments.

Edmunds says: As the name implies, car shoppers who want the ultimate Jeep Grand Cherokee should put the Summit on their consideration lists.
