This year upgraded Grand Cherokee will receive an updated 3.6-liter V6 engine with the turbine. This perfection should make the engine more powerful and reduce the fuel consumption. An upgraded six-cylinder engine is working in pair with the 9-speed automatic transmission, which is quite popular in the US auto market for some models of the SUV.

We remind that now an aspirated 3.6-liter V6 petrol engine of the Jeep Grand Cherokee develops 290 horsepower and 352 Nm of torque. This power unit for the first time was introduced four years ago and due to the fact that it was quite popular in the US market, the manufacturers began to install it, (the Ram 1500 pickup truck as well as the Wrangler SUV are powered with this engine).

Besides, the comfort features offered by the car maker on the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee can’t stay unnoticed. Now, there are wide cushions in the front seats, wide foot space, and an available sunroof.
