24/06/1998 in NEWS
While the 4.0-litre petrol engine is retained, a new 3.1-litre TD 150PS engine replaces the present 2.5-litre TD engine and the new line-up will be topped by a 4.7-litre V8 230PS petrol engine which replaces the existing 5.2-litre V8 petrol engine. Externally the new model, which although on the same wheelbase as the present version, is larger in all dimensions, features a less angular but more raked grille, stereo controls incorporated into the steering wheel and hi-tech headlamps. Since going on sale in the UK almost 11,000 Grand Cherokees have been sold.
