Comments - Jeep Reveals Updated Grand Cherokee in Detroit

Published: Jan 14, 2013
Description: Jeep didn't get to be Jeep - that is, one of the most recognizable names in off-roading - by letting others forge ahead while it stands still. So while its flagship SUV has only been on the marke...

How do these "car guys" not know the Grand Cherokee had a diesel available a few years ago?
Zachary Maurer Jan 14, 2013
I saw it a a food market in royal oak, MI
Zeus Mocha Jan 14, 2013
Where did you see it Zach? I seen one by the HQ in MI.
JB Kolod Jan 14, 2013
Take some spy pics next time Zach
Zachary Maurer Jan 14, 2013
@ clay, it should be coming soon, I saw a camoed srt Cherokee a couple weeks ago
Clay Williams Jan 14, 2013
This is all fine and dandy but where's the SRT?

sexy beast
Esteban Copaja Thielemann Jan 15, 2013
This thing is just ugly
Richard Nichols Jan 15, 2013
Thought it lookec familiar, it's the VW cross blue thing that was in a previous post!
Javier Alonso Rivas Jan 15, 2013
i would like the headlights if werent there that plastic little thing
Jack Howard Jan 14, 2013
It looks fine
Wyatt Gordon Jan 14, 2013
I like it!
Stephen Cobbs Jan 14, 2013
They took the headlights right off the 300.
Isaac Taylor Jan 14, 2013
Ahhhhh I liked the old one WAYY better
Justin McLeod Jan 14, 2013
The front end of this looks A LOT like some of the original concept drawings for the latest jeep. Not bad, I think I'll have to see it on person to determine if I like the new sleeker headlights. No matter what though I would still love a jeep srt8!!
Keaton Schelir Jan 14, 2013
The headlights look like 300 lights pasted on with some plastic/metal under them. I like the old ones better but I'd have to see this for real before I could say this looks bad.
Dan Anton Jan 14, 2013
Yeah no these lights don't work. We bought the 2013 Grand Cherokee just a few months ago. I think ours looks a lot better. Keep those lights on the 300C
Alex Bouckley Jan 14, 2013
Decent
Mike Carbaugh Jan 14, 2013
LEDs do not belong on a jeep
Alex Canitano Jan 14, 2013
Headlights look like a Durango
JB Kolod Jan 14, 2013
Headlights evoke Evoque, anyone else think so?
Mati Araujo Jan 14, 2013
Agreed. I like the old headlights better
William Downs Jan 14, 2013
Not liking the headlights, ruins the looks of the beastly looking suv... they lokk cheesy and look like a complete after thought
Zachary Maurer Jan 14, 2013
I thought they were supposed to get style from Italians, not Asians...
Nameer Jameel Jan 14, 2013
Sexy beast!
Clay Williams Jan 14, 2013
I'll have to see it in person.
Matt Piccolo Jan 14, 2013
Not feeling the headlights, they look too small!
Christopher McSween Jan 14, 2013
Beauty mts brawn? Trying to add a bit of classiness to this it seems. I've known x5 owners to trade for the Grand Cherokee. It looks good for much less.
Joe Talerico Jan 14, 2013
Headlights look too squinty for a "manly" Jeep. Maybe they'll grow on me.
Errick Kitchin Jan 14, 2013
Like the new headlights
Benjamin Hardaway Jan 14, 2013
Looks good.
Description: Most noticeable may be the revised face that carries over the styling of the existing model but with a shallower version of Jeep's signature seven-slot grille, flanked by squintier headlamps. The...

Folks, they offered the diesel a few years ago in the USA and stopped selling it bc there was such low demand. This is not a first time offering.
Ian Smith Jan 14, 2013
That had Diesel engines in the WK1 grand Cherokee
David Koerting Jan 14, 2013
Can't wait til they put the diesel in the Wrangler!
Brad Henson Jan 14, 2013
I really want a diesel GC now
Oleg Odessit Jan 14, 2013
Finnalllyyyy, hollyyyyy, only took u like 10 years
David Koerting Jan 14, 2013
Is the diesel going to be offered in all trim levels then?
Clay Williams Jan 14, 2013
Diesel!!! Finally!
Jason Brown Jan 14, 2013
They offer diesel in other countries already. In fact it's mostly diesel outside of North America.
Errick Kitchin Jan 14, 2013
It's about time they put a diesel in that thing. I'd love to have one.
Mati Araujo Jan 14, 2013
I think they look great on this car
Eric Michalak Jan 14, 2013
Why do automakers think square wheel wells look good?
Javier Alonso Rivas Jan 15, 2013
circle exahust for me please
Isaac Taylor Jan 14, 2013
Agreed
Nick Schnee Jan 14, 2013
Now I don't know about you, but the back doesn't look quite attractive to me from this angle.
Joseph Tonte Jan 14, 2013
Thank God, the taillights don't look like the Toyota Sienna anymore!
Prince Huang Jan 14, 2013
Agreed
Clay Williams Jan 14, 2013
The back is an improvement.
Markpaul Chohan Jan 14, 2013
Head lights look like there off new 300c
Matt Piccolo Jan 14, 2013
Interior looks great
Ryan Spencer Jan 14, 2013
Glad to see no changes made here.
Patrick Schalk Jan 14, 2013
Woah, that new gauge cluster is crazy.
Clay Williams Jan 14, 2013
I can definitely see some RAM in here. ( definitely not a bad thing)
William Downs Jan 14, 2013
Not really the cherokee has aleays been more upscale then the wrangler, just look back at every previous cherokee, they hVe always had full interior, they were built for daiky use and confort, wranglers are just rugged ass toys
Anthony Palmisano Jan 14, 2013
Don't get me wrong guys, this is a stunning vehicle! But lets hope that we don't see an interior like this in Wrangler because (this is just IMO) I feel like Jeep is really taking their designs and technology that defeats the purpose of a true Jeep.
Errick Kitchin Jan 14, 2013
@MarkPaul It's more like the Charger
Benjamin Hardaway Jan 14, 2013
Nice.
Markpaul Chohan Jan 14, 2013
The shifter looks similar to new ram 1500 style
Larry Martino Feb 04, 2013
When the glass roof is open it really makes the car feel roomier than with it closed
Justin McLeod Jan 14, 2013
That's pretty awesome, cars with glass roofs have always been interesting to me. I like how the mustang 5.0 has this option too, if I ever got a GC or mustang this would def be a must have option!
Chris Hill Jan 14, 2013
I see a subwoofer back there. Wonder where the cost cutting was used. I hate cheap plastics.
Jason Brown Jan 14, 2013
Looks much more spacious than the previous models. Hope they found some room for the back row seats. Hard to fit anyone over 1.5 meters tall in the rear seats, unless the driver and front passengers are both vertically challenged.
