Jeep is adding luxurious special edition models to the Grand Cherokee and Liberty lineups. The Grand Cherokee Overland Summit and Liberty Jet will debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
"These new vehicles deliver the premium attributes that a growing portion of our customers are asking for, and at the same time, are certain to draw new customers into Jeep showrooms," said Mike Manley, head of the Jeep brand.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Summit is distinguished from regular Overland models by the Rugged Brown paint and chrome inserts on the front grille (three other colors are available). Attractive 20-inch polished alloy wheels help justify the Summit's price of $43,275 for rear-wheel-drive models and $46,775 for four-wheel-drive models.
Inside, genuine Black Olive burl wood trim complements the black lower and New Saddle upper interior trim. The Nappa leather seats feature accent piping and unique stitching. Berber floor mats are also part of the package as is a heated, leather and wood steering wheel. Buying the Summit model means purchasing a Grand Cherokee with standard Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning, Blind Spot Monitoring, and Rear Cross-path detection systems.
The Jeep Liberty Jet also aims at the upscale market, yet in a smaller package. Available on Sport and Limited models, the Liberty Jet package includes 20-inch polished alloy wheels, blacked-out headlights, and chrome trim on the roof rails, side mirror caps, and front valance opening, and body side moldings. The Liberty Jet is offered with an upgraded sound system, a rear parking assist system, available leather seats, and available power front seats.
Choose from Bright Silver, Dark Charcoal, Brilliant Black, and Blackberry for the Liberty Jet. The package is priced at $1495 on the Sport and $995 on the Limited.
