Love Jeep? Of course you do. It’s pretty hard not to be drawn to the power, capability, and style of a top-quality modern Jeep. And for those who know just how great a Jeep can be, complaints are often few and far between – with two notable exceptions: comfort and safety. Although these fears might be a little misplaced with the improvements to today’s Jeep lineup – including the new Wrangler, which provides advanced safety and a luxurious interior to match its capabilities – today’s Jeeps bring something a little bit more responsible to the table. And for those looking to catch premium amenities and safe design in a powerful machine, few can match the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit.

That’s because the Grand Cherokee Summit provides some of the most impressive premium features available today which, matched with superior handling and powerful performance, make the Grand Cherokee Summit one of the most capable off-roaders currently on the road.


Three Impressive Engine Options

The Grand Cherokee Summit offers a trio of capable powertrains to suit just about any need, starting with the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, capable of up to 290 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This standard option packs a punch with a 6,200 lb towing capacity and up to 26 highway mpg rating.

Those looking to pack a little more power can opt for the 5.7-liter V8 engine, which boasts a satisfying 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque and a max towing capacity of 7,400 lbs. And don’t worry about burning through gas – this efficient V8 features fuel saver technology to bring in 22 highway mpg.

Of course, for those focused on efficiency, there’s simply no better option than the amazingly efficient 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6, a powerful diesel option that promises up to 30 miles per gallon highway and a 730 highway mile range on a single tank. You’ll still enjoy 240 horsepower and an impressive 420 lb-ft of torque, plus a max towing capacity of 7,400lbs. When such great performance meets reduced carbon emissions, you can drive happy knowing you’re working for the future.


A Luxurious Ride

Feeling all that power under the pedals won’t mean a thing if you’re uncomfortable in your car, and Jeep knows it – and that’s why the Grand Cherokee Summit is one of the most luxurious models on the road today, featuring just about everything you’ll need to stay comfortable so you can settle in and enjoy that engine.

Heated, ventilated, and leather-trimmed bucket seats throughout the vehicle create a warm and friendly atmosphere, while power front seats help you and your co-pilot get comfortable with ease. Connect your favorite MP3 or Bluetooth player or simply select your favorite streaming music from the 8.4-inch touchscreen UConnect system and you’ll be riding in style, blasting your favorite tunes through the awe-inspiring 19-speaker Harmon-Kardon premium audio system. Navigation and charge ports throughout come standard, while premium features like the rear seat dual-screen Blu-ray player are available as well.

When you choose your Grand Cherokee Summit, you’ll have a choice between seven different color options to make it uniquely yours – just one more way that Jeep helps you craft the perfect model for your lifestyle. As far as we’re concerned, few options can top the Grand Cherokee Summit, and it’s worth asking about at your local Jeep dealer – and enjoying for miles to come.
