The new Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup gets a new range-topping addition in 2006. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland model, with enhanced interior and platinum-accented elegant exterior, takes the Grand Cherokee to new heights. The Overland model is one of many new products contributing to the on-going Jeep product offensive scheduled during the second half of this decade in markets outside of North America.
The interior of the Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland delivers an up-market ambience, with enhanced trim materials including:
- leather and real-wood steering wheel
- real-wood door bezels
- real-wood centre stack and floor console bezels
- leather-wrapped instrument cluster brow
- unique gear shift and leather-covered hand brake levers and centre armrest
- leather-wrapped satellite navigation brow
- leather-wrapped upper and lower door panels
Leather and ultra-suede trimmed seats are embroidered with an Overland logo on the front seatbacks. Available colours include: Medium Slate Grey and Dark Khaki with contrasting Light Greystone.
The exterior of the Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland model is an adaptation of the signature Jeep design heritage – including platinum accents on the honeycomb mesh front grille, mirror housings, roof rack side rails, rear bumper, lift gate light bar, side-window trim and body-side mouldings and 18-inch, seven-spoke alloy standard wheels.
“Jeep Grand Cherokee sets the benchmark with its on-road refinement, off-road mastery and overall performance in key areas of customer satisfaction,” said Thomas Hausch, Executive Director of International Sales and Marketing, Chrysler Group. “Now with the understated luxury of the new range-topping Overland model, Jeep Grand Cherokee becomes the ultimate expression of Jeep ‘Modern’ and an even more compelling package for customers in Europe and other international markets.”
The Overland model is available with a 3.0-litre V-6 diesel and 5.7-litre HEMI engines.
Standard equipment includes satellite navigation with six disc autochanger, power sunroof, front and rear park assist and panic brake assist.
Peace of mind comes as standard with all new Jeep vehicles thanks to a three-year/60,000 mile warranty package including European roadside assistance and a seven-year anti-corrosion guarantee.
The new Grand Cherokee Overland is built at the Magna Steyr manufacturing facility in Graz, Austria, and will be available in UK dealerships from March 2006.
