The wraps came off what the manufacturer describes as “the most capable version of the Grand Cherokee produced from the factory” in the form of the
concept model from the 2012 Easter Jeep Safari in Moab. The the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk focuses on the 4×4 capability, with approach angles of 29.8 degrees or 36.1 degrees (once the lower front fascia is removed) while the break-over angle is 27.1 degrees and the departure angle is at 22.8 degrees, with up to 10.8 inches of ground clearance.
Outfitted with either 18-inch or optional 20-inch wheels, the Trailhawk will roll on Goodyear Adventure tyres with Kevlar reinforcement, and its U-connect offroad pages have been updated to include wheel articulation and other vehicle 4×4 capability features like ride height and terrain traction modes.
The Summit takes a decidedly different approach to the Grand Cherokee, focusing on paved road refinement rather than 4×4 capability. The model scores an updated front fascia, grille and LED fog lights, with new 20 inch polished aluminum wheels thrown in too.
Inside, occupants are treated to luxury features like a Nappa-leather wrapped dashboard and a 19-speaker, 825 watt Harman Kardon audio system with no less than three subwoofers!!
Of course the Jeep Quadra-Drive II 4×4 system is standard on all Summit models, as is the Quadra-Lift air suspension.
