Safety is increasingly important for customers and the Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Tech is fitted with many standard safety features including Electronic Stability Control (ESC) that delivers four security features to improve overall vehicle handling and performance both on- and off-road: Electronic Roll Mitigation (ERM) reacts and applies brakes during extreme situations while available Hill Descent Control (HDC) and Hill Start Assist (HSA) work with optional Trailer-Sway Control (TSC) to enhance off-road and towing capabilities.

Quadra Trac II®, Jeep’s full time active four-wheel-drive system, provides outstanding response and traction under all driving conditions – both on- and off-road – without the driver having to shift any levers or push any buttons. It also improves handling stability in wet weather and on slippery roads by making maximum use of available traction during acceleration

Quadra-Drive II incorporates Electronic Limited Slip Differentials (ELSD) — front, centre and rear — to offer customers the ultimate in off-road capability with even quicker response to changing conditions and greater torque capacity.

Federico Goretti, Managing Director of Chrysler UK Ltd, said: “We are very confident that the Grand Cherokee Overland Tech with its combination of luxury, ability, equipment and competitive price will find favour with many UK customers.

“The Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Tech offers customer savings of £4,300 over the Overland model. With only 115 models for sale we expect high demand, so interested buyers should visit their nearest Jeep dealership for more information and to test drive this special edition.”
