Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland European Pricing Announced

Jeep’s Grand Cherokee has been launched onto the European market, sporting a starting price of EUR52,200 ($68,554). Right now, the model is only available in Overland trim, the highest available on the American market. Powering the SUV will be a choice in between a V6 and a V8 petrol engine, with the 225 hp V6 diesel expected early next year.

The Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 under the bonnet delivers 286 hp and 347 Nm (255 lb-ft) of torque in European spec, while the 5.7-liter V8 provides a total of 352 hp and 520 Nm (383 lb-ft) of torque. All engines are mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission that ensures decent performance figures: the V6 touches 100 km/h (62 mph) in 9.1 seconds and reaches a top speed of 206 km/h or 127 US mph (with an average consumption of 11.4 l/100 km or mpg 20 mpg and 265 g / km CO2). The venerable 5.7-liter V8 does marginally better, propelling the Jeep to 100 km/h in 8.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 225 km/h (140 mph), while only burning through 14.1 l/100 km (16 mpg) on the combined run.

In Overland trim, the Grand Cherokee offers active bi-xenon headlights, sunroof, powered tailgate, Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control, traction control, stability control for trailer towing and seven airbags. The Grand Cherokee Overland V6 will be offered at a price of EUR52,200 ($68,554), which rises to EUR63,800 ($83,791) for the V8.

The new Grand Cherokee, which is more than 7 cm (2.75 inches) longer and 6.8 cm (2.67 inches) wider than its predecessor, has made great improvements in terms of exterior and interior design, with superior materials and more space for passengers. The very short options list includes metallic paint for EUR850 ($1,116) and the Safety Pack, consisting of active cruise control and blind sport sensors for EUR1,800 ($2,364).

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
