Jeep Grand Cherokee Concept going to Geneva image

The North American based automaker Jeep has recently announced that the Grand Cherokee Concept will be officially presented to the public at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March.

Just like the Jeep Compass concept, which might hit the production line if it will be well received by the audience at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Concept is also a production-intent special edition, which will have the same faith as its brother, depending on the European event. The company wants to see the public’s reaction to it before giving it the green line to the production line and eventually launching it on the Old Continent.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Concept is coming with a gloss black accent look which can be found on the grille surround, headlamp and 20-inch aluminum wheels, and the model is also coming with tinted rear passenger windows, new roof molding covers to replace the roof rack, liftgate light-bar, lower bumper fascia, mesh grille and black chrome dual exhaust tips.

The cabin has been fitted with Nappa leather and suede seats, a heated leather steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and bright accelerator and brake pedals. Under the hood, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Concept is coming with a 3.0 liter V6 turbo diesel engine with the technology from Fiat’s MultiJet II, which is developing a total output of 241 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 550 Nm (406 lb-ft), mated to a five-speed automatic transmission with ERS (Electronic Range Select).
