Trim Level Options on the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT

There are a half-dozen trim level options that make up the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV lineup.

Choose from the Laredo, Altitude, Limited, Overland, Summit, and SRT, all available with rear-wheel or four-wheel drive, with the exception of the SRT, which is exclusively a four-wheel drive vehicle.

Starting with the Laredo, expect to find standard features like cruise control, keyless ignition and entry, automatic headlights, full power accessories, dual-zone air conditioning, fog lights, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel wrapped in leather, Bluetooth capabilities, six-speaker sound system, 5-inch infotainment touchscreen, USB port, auxiliary jack, and a CD player.

You can further outfit the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with the 23E package, which provides an eight-way power driver seat, which also has four-way power lumbar support, roof rails, and satellite radio.

For added convenience, purchase the Security and Convenience Group, which will equip your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with a power liftgate, heated front seats, complemented by a heated steering wheel, remote engine start, and 115-volt power outlet, similar to the ones on a household wall outlet.

If you want four-wheel drive, the Laredo can be outfitted with the Off-Road Adventure I Group, which includes the Selec-Terrain system , a five-speed dial that allows the driver to choose driving mode based on conditions. The five driving modes are: Sport, Snow, Auto, Sand/Mud, and Rock. Also included in the Off-Road Adventure I Group are skid plates, a two-speed transfer case, hill descent control, on/off-road tires and a full-size spare tire.

Stand alone options are abundant, but a few to consider are the sunroof, the 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, and the 18-inch wheels, in lieu of the standard 17-inchers.

Now, if you take the Laredo, enhanced with the 23E and the Security and Convenience group, you’re on your way to the next stepped up trim – the Altitude.

And, the Altitude also comes standard with 20-inch gloss black wheels, complemented by gloss black exterior accents, body-color grille, along with body-color lower fascias and cladding, black suede upholstery, and chrome exhaust outlets.

Take the 23E and Security and Convenience Group, add 18-inch wheels, an anti-theft system, an eight-way power passenger seat with four-way lumbar support, heated rear seats, driver memory settings, remote start, a cargo cover, chrome exterior details, rear-seat USB charging stations, rear parking sensors, rearview camera, and high-end nine-speaker sound system, and you’re looking at the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited.

In addition to the Off-Road Adventure I Group, available on the Laredo, the Limited can also be equipped with the Off-Road Adventure II Group, which gives you an air suspension system and a locking rear differential, along with all the bells and whistles from the Off-Road Adventure I Group.

For added luxury, the Luxury Group II provides automatic wipers and automatic high-beam control, panoramic sunroof, upgraded leather upholstery, xenon headlights, power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, and ventilated front seats. You can opt for the 8.4-inch touchscreen and further enhance it – and your adventures – with a navigation system.

Moving almost to the end of the line – the trim level line, that is – the Overland comes loaded like the Limited, but with extra features like power-folding mirrors, wood-rimmed steering wheel, towing package, automatic wipers, 20-inch wheels, the navigation-equipped touchscreen, and all of the Luxury Group II enhancements.

Both the Limited and Overland 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokees can be equipped with the Advanced Technology Group, upping the safety features with forward collision warning and crash mitigation, adaptive cruise control, rear cross-path detection, and blind spot monitoring.

Top of the Line and Tremendous Performance: The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit and SRT

At the height of the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee line is the aptly named Summit trim level.

If you choose the Summit, you’ll enjoy features like illuminated door sills, active noise-canceling technology, front parking sensors, actual wood trim throughout the cabin, an acoustic windshield, a 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, and the Advanced Technology Group, all perched atop 20-inch polished wheels.

Make an even loftier statement by enhancing the Summit’s exterior via the Platinum Series package.

For high-performance, check out the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT model. Similarly equipped as the Summit, with the exception of features like the 19-speaker audio system and panoramic sunroof, the SRT is outfitted with a V8 engine, adaptive suspension, Brembo brakes, performance-tuned steering, limited-slip rear differential, LED running lights, performance tires, which wrap 20-inch forged wheels, carbon-fiber accents throughout the cabin, and leather/suede sport seats.

Make the ultimate statement by opting for the Red Vapor package, complete with gloss black exterior accents, black chrome wheels, and black, red, and silver interior cabin details.

Antsy back-seat passengers can be entertained by the available Blu-ray capable entertainments system, provided you choose the Limited, Overland, Summit, or SRT trims.

Standard towing package on the Overland and Summit is also optional on the Laredo, Limited, and SRT, if towing capability is a priority in your search for a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Now that you have an overview of the trim level options available to you in the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, all that’s left to do is test drive them.
