2017 Jeep Vehicles at New York Auto ShowThe Jeep experience began with the popular "Portraits" commercial first aired during the Superbowl. Mike Manley then proceeded to talk about the Special Edition 75th Anniversary models. Afterward, he relayed some pretty impressive stats regarding Jeep sales and growth. Here's the latest on that front:
- 6th straight year of records sales
- Sales increase for every vehicle offering in the U.S.
- Production in foreign soil (China) for the first time in 10 years
As far as the Grand Cherokee SRT Night, we got to hear those sweet stats once again:
- Highest performing Jeep ever
- 0-60 in 4.8 seconds
- 13 second quarter miles
SRT, we love you. There was a brief featuring of the Cherokee Overland we had to wait through before finally getting down to brass tax. He was going to show us the 2017 Jeep vehicles we had all been waiting for...
2017 Jeep Grand CherokeesThe Jeep Summit ended with Manley highlighting the two very different 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee models we already covered. We're not complaining, per se, we just thought there would be more. First was the 2017 Grand Cherokee Summit, which is ultra luxurious. Next up was the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, which is the rougher off-road version of the Summit. But I'm not sure I buy what Jeep's doing. On the one hand they're saying the Summit is the most luxurious model they have to date, while the Trailhawk is the get-down-to-business version. But in the same breath they say the Summit is ready and able to go off-road, while the Trailhawk looks really luxurious inside as well. Yes, they both offer a few different options, but they're both Grand Cherokees, and they're not really that much different from one another. It was amusing to watch the Trailhawk go up those stairs, though! That's not to say we don't like them, we do.
That sums it for the 2017 Jeep lineup for now, but stay tuned for developing news and Jeep reveals as they come. Don't forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for Jeep parts and accessories coupons and Jeep Life Memes.
