Jeep has brought the Grand Cherokee back to India with the new fifth-generation model. Priced at Rs 77.50 lakh (ex-showroom), the new Grand Cherokee sits on an all-new architecture, along with getting an interior and exterior design that has evolved over the previous model.

The Grand Cherokee is available only with the 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine while some rivals offer larger displacement 6-cylinder units. Both the Audi Q7 and BMW X5 petrol feature six-cylinder engines only while the Land Rover Discovery can be optioned with either a four or a six-cylinder engine. The XC90 is limited to just a four-cylinder turbocharged engine.
