Launched in 1992, the Grand Cherokee embodies – according to Jeep – the brand’s core values of freedom, authenticity, adventure and passion. And it has been announced that the new 2014 version will be available to buy in the UK from the 19th July, a launch that we will celebrate at Arnold Clark Jeep branches from 20th – 21st July.

Featuring new cutting-edge technology and improved performance on-road as well as off-road, Jeep claim that the new Grand Cherokee exhibits “power, comfort, craftsmanship and sophistication.”

UK customers will be able to choose from 2 engines, 3 power outputs and 6 trim levels, all with the trademark capability of the Grand Cherokee name as standard. With a new look, new wheels and new colour combinations, each spec level brings something different to the table.
