Apart from the drop in prices, Jeep has also given subtle updates to the Grand Cherokee such as billet-like plating for the grille slats and newly designed 18-inch alloys which will be painted in high gloss silver and will be standard on the Grand Cherokee Limited. The Summit variant of the Grand Cherokee gets new 20-inch alloys done in polished aluminium in Technical Grey colour. Lastly, the SRT variant gets 20-inch full polished satin clear coat and matte black split spoke alloys. The SRT also gets upper and lower cooling intakes on the front end.
The other updates include a Gen II automatic transmission, standard air suspension on the Summit trim of the Grand Cherokee and standard LED fog lamps on the entire range. Also, the steering setup is now electric power assisted as compared to the earlier setup of electro-hydraulic power steering. All the Grand Cherokee variants now also get an acoustic windshield which apparently reduces seepage of noise into the cabin.
