When it comes to mid-size SUVs, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a household name, but the newest introduction to the line heralds a new design and new features to look forward to. Introduced at Detroit’s 2013 International Auto Show, the 2014 Grand Cherokee offers up plenty of reasons you might want to stop by our Jeep dealership for a test drive when it is released later this year.

In 2012, Jeep had one of its brightest years yet, setting a sales record with an improvement of 13 percent over the previous year—and going by what Jeep showed off at the recent International Auto Show, 2013 might be even more of a reason to celebrate.

The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is still recognizable as the Jeep many owners know and love, but with a noticeable face lift. Slimmer headlamps sit on a slightly shallower grille, with raised lower headlights and larger LED tail lights. Many of the same trims from last year will be available: Laredo, Limited, Overland and Overland Summit, simply renamed, “Summit”.

One of the biggest updates is the addition of a diesel engine option, in the form of a 3.0 liter EcoDiesel V-6. This optional engine clocks in at 3600 rpm and 240 horsepower. According to Jeep, choosing rear wheel drive will get you an estimated 21 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city with this engine, or 30 mpg highway, with the ability to pull up to 7400 pounds. With four wheel drive, this drops to a slightly more modest 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway with the ability to tug 7200 pounds.

Other engine options include a 3.6 liter Pentastar and a 5.7 liter Hemi V-8, but regardless of which you choose, you’ll be handling a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, offering improved fuel economy and smoother shifts.

The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has as many options as ever, with a sleeker new look as well as the latest and greatest technology. Head to Suburban Chrysler Jeep of Ann Arbor for a test drive of the new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and see if it could be the mid-size SUV you have been waiting for.
