Jeep has officially revealed the 2015 model year Grand Cherokee SUV, with the model featuring a host of minor improvements and styling updates, including a new Summit California Edition.
The top of the range Summit models have been upgraded with additional standard premium features, while adding on top the newly released Summit California Edition appearance package that features Argentina Tan leather interior. The special edition has a monotone body-color paint scheme, which covers the mirrors, door handles and lower part of the body. There are also platinum chrome accents and the rims get a Satin Carbon finish and 20-inch dimensions.
Besides an array of small tweaks for all variants, the most interesting is the new Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) technology offered standard on the Summit trim. Thanks to the partners at Harman Kardon, the Jeep’s exterior road noise can be reduced by an additional 10 dB – making more room in the passenger’s ears for the Summit’s 825-watt, nineteen-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.
Powertrain options remain the same, with a wide assortment of 4×4 systems, combined with the Quadra-Lift air suspension and Jeep Selec-Terrain traction management system. Under the hood there’s a great 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine that’s mated to an eight-speed transmission – the model can deliver an EPA rated mileage of 30 mpg, leading to a range of around 730 miles.
