Top Trim Level in the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee
When we’re talking about an iconic and ever-popular vehicle like the Jeep Grand Cherokee, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by trim level choices and model options, particularly when you consider that this Jeep travels in a pack of six trims.
Although each one of those six trim levels are available as outstanding Jeep Grand Cherokee lease deals , we decided to showcase just one – the top-level Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit.
We like to aim high, but also want to assure you that any of the Grand Cherokee models are sure to please. For now, let’s shoot for the Summit.
The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit
First things first…let’s start with what makes a Grand Cherokee a Grand Cherokee.
All of the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokees are considered midsize SUVs, able to seat up to five passengers, and available with rear-wheel or four-wheel drive.
Of the six trims – the Laredo, Altitude, Limited, Overland, Summit, and SRT, the Summit is the aptly named as the top of the line model. The SRT is a high-performance model, a different Cherokee creature altogether.
So, the Summit…the Jeep Grand Cherokee perched at the top of the line.
First of all, in the Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit is one of only two trims to give you three engine options.
Standard fare comes from a 3.6-liter V6 engine, rated at 290 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, but there is also an available 5.7-liter V8 engine, generating 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque.
But, we like the turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine, which is able to produce 240 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque.
Fuel economy from this engine gets an EPA-estimated 21 city, 28 highway, and 24 mpg combined from four-wheel drive, and 22 city, 30 highway, and 25 mpg combined from the rear-wheel drive.
The diesel engine shares the same towing capacity as the V8, measured at 7,400 pounds.
Special Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit specs include an acoustic windshield, active noise-canceling technology, front parking sensors, illuminated door sills, actual wood trim in the cabin, panoramic sunroof, polished 20-inch wheels, 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, and Advanced Technology Group.
You can spruce up the outside of your Summit, thanks to exterior enhancements from the Platinum Series package.
Safety is standard for all of the Jeep Grand Cherokees, with the highest possible safety rating awarded by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and five out of five starts resulting from government crash tests.
Pricing on the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit starts at the MSRP of $48,995.
