Europe Gets a Fancy 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee S
If black is your color, then you’ll appreciate the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee S—a special edition model made exclusively for several lucky European markets.
Jeep introduced the Grand Cherokee S recently, and we’re optimistic that a version will reach our shores in the near future. If not, here’s what you’ll need to convert your own Grand Cherokee.
Start with a fresh coat of black and add Low Gloss Granite Crystal accents on the badging, grille bezels, step pad, tail lamps, and 20-inch aluminum wheels.
Coat the grille in gloss black as well as all of the window surrounds, then add a sport suspension and a black chrome finish for the dual exhausts around back.
Under the hood, options include a 3.0-liter V-6 diesel engine that offers 250 hp, a 3.6-liter V-6 with 286 hp, or a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 with 352 hp. All three engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Inside, the cabin gets Anodized Gun Metal accents, black wood finishes, and black instrument panel accent stitching. Add a panoramic dual-pane sunroof, leather-covered steering wheel, some Mopar bright metal pedals, and black Nappa SRT-like perforated leather seats with black accent stitching and voila! You have yourself your very own Grand Cherokee S.
If black is not your thing, the Jeep Grand Cherokee (2017 model shown above and below) comes in 10 flavors, including the model-exclusive Sangria Metallic Clear Coat paint.
Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but we imagine it will add a few grand to the Grand Cherokee’s base price of $33,681.
