Jeep® Grand Cherokee: The Most-awarded SUV Ever Just Keeps Getting Better

The 2016 New York International Auto Show brought us a lot to look forward to in the automotive industry. Perhaps one of the most looked-at models to debut at the event is the 2017 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and Summit models. The models bring a new exterior design, more stylish interior and more premium features than any previous models.


“With our new Trailhawk and Summit models, Jeep Grand Cherokee becomes even more capable and more luxurious,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA Global. “Our Cherokee and Renegade Trailhawk models are among our fastest selling and most sought-after models, and we are following that successful formula to provide consumers even more legendary Jeep 4x4 capability for Grand Cherokee – the most awarded SUV ever.

Jeep has always been on the forefront of automotive innovation, in particular with the Grand Cherokee. With a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine that gets up to 30 miles-per-gallon, it’s no wonder the Grand Cherokee is always near the top of the charts in customer satisfaction and loyalty. These two new Grand Cherokee models, the Trailhawk and Summit, only give Jeep fans more to love.


“Our new Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit is in direct response to consumers who continue to ask for even more luxury, craftsmanship and standard premium features in a full-size SUV packed with capability,” Manley added.


The Jeep Grand Cherokee has become one of the most sought after vehicles on the road today, and has seen sales spike in recent years. In addition to increased sales, the SUV has earned multiple awards, including the inaugural PAPA Best of the Southwest Award and Luxury Off-Road Award at the 12th annual Active Lifestyle Vehicle Competition.


“The Jeep Grand Cherokee ticked all the boxes for our PAPA panel of automotive journalists as a durable go-anywhere vehicle with plenty of room for people and gear,” said Bob Golfen, automotive journalist and PAPA member. “PAPA jurors also were impressed by the Jeep's premium interior and superior drivability, which make it an ideal all-around SUV for daily driving and vacation fun.” 

The Active Lifestyle Vehicle competition is the only annual awards program targeted to outdoor enthusiasts and athletes. Its evaluation criteria includes navigating off-road courses along with on-road driving. The award winners are chosen by members of the automotive media.


“With its fuel-efficient EcoDiesel engine, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has the off-road capability and range to venture far off the grid, while maintaining the appealing style, comfort and convenience features that buyers in this segment demand,” said Nina Russin, ALV co-founder. “As such, the Grand Cherokee can keep up with the demanding lifestyles of elite and recreational athletes who need a daily commuter during the week, but a highly off-road capable vehicle for the weekend.”
