Grand Cherokee ends year with 4x4 award

The award-winning Jeep Grand Cherokee is finishing the year on a high – with a top industry accolade. The new luxury off-roader has just been crowned 4x4 of the Year by Total 4x4 magazine.

With more than 30 international accolades from an array of opinion-leading organisations, the latest four-wheel drive Grand Cherokee is one of the most awarded SUVs ever. And with an impressive features list and more refinement than ever before, it’s no surprise that the 2,987cc V6 turbo diesel Grand Cherokee is top choice again.

The car’s comfort, equipment and technology all come in for praise from the Total 4x4 judging panel, and a special mention is made of the car’s practicality.

“It’s good value by the standards of its competitors,” says Alan Kidd, editor, Total 4x4. “And there’s little at this price that does such a good job of combining comfort, equipment, dynamic prowess and relevant technology.

“There have been four Grand Cherokees over the years and each one has improved on the last,” adds Alan Kidd. “But this time the step up has been off the scale. It’s a very worthy winner.”

The Grand Cherokee also won the Awards’ Off-Roader category.

“Any award recognising our products is welcome, but to get the top prize is very good news,” says Nigel Land, brand director, Jeep Chrysler UK. “We’re proud of what Grand Cherokee has achieved for Jeep this year and we look forward to more great things from the brand in 2012.”
