2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Concept

For Jeep enthusiasts who want to make a statement, the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Concept will precisely meet their needs.

If you could only use one word to sum up the exterior of this Grand Cherokee, the word would have to be, gorgeous.

Of course, it's much more than that. A platinum-chrome front end combined with black gloss 20 inch wheels make this Jeep impressively aggressive looking, but its aggression is honed.

This is a Jeep that is going to look just as good in-front of the Ritz as is it on top of the Berkshire Mountains.

Interior

The designers of this Jeep didn't forget about the interior, of course. The vehicle has standard leather-trimmed seats along with a steering wheel and shifter wrapped in the same soft grain leather. The front seats are heated for those cold mountain mornings.

Music aficionados will fall in love with what the Jeep Cherokee Concept offers, which quite frankly might be one of the best factory installed sound systems in any SUV currently on the road.

Nine speakers offer gorgeous sound with a 506 watt amplifier and a subwoofer. If that's not enough, there's a factory installed MP3/iPod connection.

More Features

Loyal Jeep customers who voiced complaints about visibility will be happy to hear that the Concept Grand Cherokee comes with a Parkview backup camera that is unobtrusive while still offering a great view.

Safety

In fact, the Grand Cherokee comes with extensive safety features including full-length side curtain airbags, driver and passenger seat airbags, front collision warning system and adaptive cruise control that maintains a safe following distance behind other cars.

The 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Concept vehicle is going to excite Jeep lovers from all over, as well as attract new Jeep fans that are looking for a stylish and accomplished SUV. This Jeep truly has it all.

Performance

There are three engine options to trek the mountains or off-road wilderness with. You can prowl with either 6 or 8-cylinder powertrain that won't have a problem climbing through a snow bank or two. The six-cylinder is available in 3.6L engine with a five speed transmission, or two V8 options: 5.7L, six speed or the 6.4L Hemi, five speed.
