When looking for a comfortable and reliable SUV, many people pay attention to the brand called Jeep. Jeep Grand Cherokee 2018 (new body), bundling and prices, photos of which were presented relatively recently, in comparison with the restyling version of 2013 are almost identical. The difference is only in the new head optics and a slightly different front bumper with sections for fog lamps. Most of the changes are purely decorative, but there are still a few changes. Let’s consider all features of a novelty more in detail.

EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR DESIGN
Do not expect significant changes from the new generation in terms of exterior, basically the style will remain virtually unchanged. The key points are the following information:
The main changes affect optics, which will become more modern and attractive in appearance. At the same time, in the maximum configuration, the design can be automatically adjusted to the road conditions. The shape of the optics will remain unchanged, but the fog lamps will become large and will fit on the very edges of the structure.
The front bumper will also change significantly. This will be expressed by a new form of air intake, as well as niches for fog lights. The design of the fog lamps was also significantly modified.
The rear of the car will change insignificantly. An example is the fact that they will add new exhaust pipe fittings. Change and the tailgate with a bumper.
In general, we can say that the changes will be insignificant. The car, as before, will correspond to an expensive class on the outside.
The price of an off-road vehicle is determined by the fact that the new grand Cherokee of 2018, the photo, whose price is presented in this material, has a high-quality and spacious interior. To the salon features we will refer the following moments:
The quality of the finish will be significantly increased, despite the fact that it was already at a sufficiently high level.
Particular attention was paid to the quality of the seats being installed. In this case, the car can install 2 and 3 rows of seats. The design of the seats being installed has become more complicated, due to which their comfort has increased.
The new multimedia system will also become a key feature of the updated SUV. In the top equipment, the automaker will build small displays throughout the cabin to ensure high comfort and rear-row passengers.
The third row is installed in the car without increasing the size of the body. That’s why the three-seater version of the car will have a relatively small trunk. Of course, if you want, you can quickly dismantle the third row of seats and increase the volume of the luggage compartment.
The new engine and transmission became necessary because of the large body dimensions. Jeep Grand Cherokee 2018 model year has the following body dimensions:
The length was almost 4830 mm. This information determines that the car is large, and its interior has become much more comfortable.
The width of the off-road vehicle was 1940mm.
The height of the body is very large, the figure is 1800 mm.
In addition, the large wheelbase also has a favorable effect on the comfort of the driver and passengers. The total curb weight is about 3 tons. The new SUV should receive the following changes:
In the control system, in particular steering and other elements
In the design of the running gear.
In the construction of under-hood equipment, various power units.
The novelty will have a new modular platform that will determine the change of the main technical characteristics. The weak side of the jeep has always been a big fuel consumption. On the new SUV began to install engines with the Eco Mode, which allows you to reduce the fuel consumption rate when deactivating half of the cylinders in the case of low power.
In addition, the installed suspension system has the function of changing the ride height depending on the speed. So the car squats at high speed, the ground clearance increases when it decreases. The machine to be installed selects the most suitable time for the gear change. Therefore, for a sufficiently large volume and power, the flow rate is relatively low. Another important issue can be called whether a new car with a mechanical box will be available. By the way, today in the US market offers with mechanics are not highly appreciated.
COMPONENTS AND PRICES
The automaker in question does not offer much choice to its customers. This is due to the fact that most cars are sold on the domestic market, and Americans are not eager to save on a more economical engine or less comfort. That’s why the Jeep grand cherokee 2018 also can be purchased only in a few basic trim levels, which are insignificantly different from each other. An example is the following:
Basic equipment, which will cost $ 60 000. A significant increase in the cost of the car is associated with the installation of a gasoline engine with a volume of 3-liters. Due to the large volume of the combustion chamber, they were able to increase the power to 238 hp. The rotation is transmitted through a new automatic transmission with 8 steps. All versions are supplied exclusively with all-wheel drive.For such a high cost SUV is completed with a rather large number of options. An example is a multimedia steering wheel, from which you can control various systems, for example, a telephone. The gearbox selector is also made in a modern style. In the basic equipment is installed a 5-inch display with the function of touch control. The speed, the number of revolutions, the navigation map and much more are shown on the display with a diagonal of 7-inches.
This version will cost the fans of the American brand $ 67 000. The differences of this offer from the previous one are only in additional options and equipment. For a surcharge, a display with a size of 8.4 inches is installed. Front seats can now be installed in a more comfortable position with an electric drive. The adjustment range in 8 positions is very large.
The climate system has the function of dividing the entire cabin into three separate zones. Support for speed at the desired level, as well as carry out its adjustment depending on the traffic situation can adaptive cruise control.
The top offer which costs an impressive $ 85 000. The drive is also full, the box is automatic with 8 steps. But the gasoline engine has a larger volume of 3.6 liters, as well as a power of 286 hp. It is not difficult to guess that the power factor could be increased due to an increase in the volume of the combustion chamber of the ICE.
At the expense of a surcharge, additional displays are installed on the back row, which are mounted on special panels. In addition, in top-end equipment, all materials have the highest quality. Also, the high cost is due to just a huge number of various security systems and assistance in driving a vehicle on the road.
The above information determines that this SUV is the representative of the most expensive class of SUVs. This model has a huge number of rivals, most of whom are representatives of the German car industry.
The high cost of an SUV determines that this car has a fairly large number of competitors. An example is the following models:
Toyota Land Cruiser Prado.
Land Rover Discovery.
Mitsubishi Pajero Sport.
Some of them are sold in the base configuration at a lower price, but some have a higher throughput. Therefore, if you need a car with more traffic, then you can pay attention to the proposal of other automakers. If you need a more comfortable SUV, then you can buy a Jeep. However, German automakers provide more modern and original offers.
At the Auto Show in New York in 2017 debuted the extreme Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, the appearance of which had to wait more than two years. Before us is the most powerful serial version of this SUV in its entire history.
