Crystal Jeep in Cathedral City is proud to be home to the latest, 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee. If there's one word that continually comes up in regards to the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee, it's the word, "New." There are so many new aspects to this tried and tested model; the most difficult part is trying to decide what drivers in Palm Springs want to know about first. For starters, the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee can come with the Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 engine, adding Engine Stop-Start (ESS) technology to improve fuel efficiency.
New 3.6-liter V-6 technology for 2016 includes cooled Exhaust-Gas Recirculation (EGR), advanced two-step variable valve lift (VVL) system, and an upgraded variable-valve timing (VVT) system. This means the standard Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6-powered Grand Cherokee models tow up to 6,200 pounds and a driving range of more than 600 miles, a best in class for gas-powered SUVs. Additionally, the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee gas V-6 and 5.7-liter V-8 models will receive improved fuel efficiency due to electric power steering, decreased tire rolling resistance, and weight reductions with aluminum suspension. The available 5.7-liter V-8 packs 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque with best-in-class towing capacity of 7,400 pounds throughout Southern California.
Every Jeep Grand Cherokee's engine is mated to the FCA US eight-speed automatic transmission. The robust and durable eight-speed transmission delivers quick acceleration and precise, smooth shifting, thus enhancing ride quality to luxury car levels and enhancing fuel economy. All 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee models equipped with Off-road groups are Trail Rated. The Jeep Trail Rated badge on the Jeep Grand Cherokee indicates that the vehicle is designed to perform in a variety of challenging off-road conditions, identified by five key consumer-oriented capability categories: traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and, water fording. So, whether your plans call for a weekend out in Joshua Tree or heading for the mountains, the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee will get you there.
All trim levels of the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee at Crystal Jeep in Cathedral City have a premium look, while simultaneously making each trim level readily identifiable at a glance. Key exterior features include front and rear LED lighting, allowing Grand Cherokee to be instantly recognizable, night or day, from a great distance. Standard on the Overland and Summit trim levels, and available on Limited, are bi-xenon high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps (adaptive on Summit) that are outlined with signature LED running lamps. Obviously, the Grand Cherokee retains Jeep's classic seven-slot grille and trapezoidal wheel arches, making it instantly recognizable against any skyline the Coachella Valley has to offer. The front and rear features unique lower fascias for every trim level and a large, aerodynamic rear spoiler.
The award-winning interior of the Jeep Grand Cherokee is clearly one of the most technically advanced, well-crafted interiors in the industry. Immediately noticeable is the Uconnect 5-inch or 8.4-inch touchscreen. Controls for radio and climate are found below the screen and have easily identifiable knobs and buttons. Following the center stack down onto the center console reveals a new, leather-wrapped, polystable shifter for the eight-speed transmission. The three-spoke steering wheel features sections of wood on the Overland and Summit models. All Grand Cherokee models include standard paddle shifters mounted on the back of the steering wheel, designed and positioned to provide an optimal view of the gauge cluster that features a 7-inch, full-color, customizable instrument display. This screen allows drivers to select from a multitude of layout and vehicle information to be shown in the center of the gauge cluster.
Laredo and Limited models feature dark wood trim on the dash and doors. Door handle and dash vent bezels, as well as the trim on the center console, feature a slight gold hue to their brushed aluminum look. Premium cloth seating is standard on Laredo while Capri leather seating is standard in Limited. Overland models have several touches like standard Nappa leather seats, stitched-leather instrument panel, and available open-pore wood, which add a distinct touch of modern luxury. Wood trim is also found on the top portion of the leather-wrapped steering wheel. Rear-seat footwell and rear door-pocket ambient lighting highlight the Grand Cherokee's interior design at night, making a fashionable statement on the roads of Palm Springs.
Grand Cherokee Summit models continue to carry the torch for premium interiors for SUVs. Premium Natura-Plus leather seating with heated, ventilated, and memory front seats, open-pore wood trim, and Copper accents are available on Summit in Morocco Black or Grand Canyon Jeep Brown. Returning for 2016 is the Argentina Tan interior with black-accent stitching. Also unique to Summit is a premium suede-like material covering the A-pillars and headliner.
Another impressive feature found on Summit, and available on Overland models, is a nineteen-speaker, 825-watt high-performance Harman Kardon surround sound audio system. This is a state-of-the-art system featuring a 12-channel amplifier, three sub-woofers, surrounding the occupants in high-definition sound. Grand Cherokee Summit and SRT models feature specially tuned Noise Cancelling Technology.
Speaking of Technology, the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee delivers drivers an array of innovative advanced technologies for driver safety and passenger enjoyment. For 2016, Uconnect is introducing new features including the all-new Drag and Drop menu bar, Siri Eyes Free, Do Not Disturb, SiriusXM Tune Start, and a Vehicle User Guide that can be viewed via the 8.4-inch touchscreen. Available Uconnect Access with 3G Wi-Fi, a Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen, one-shot voice command navigation and a customer customizable multiview cluster display continue to highlight the state-of-the-art features. Uconnect Access connects vehicle occupants directly with emergency personnel with a push of the "9-1-1" button on the rear-view mirror.

Finally, Jeep Grand Cherokees at Crystal Jeep in Cathedralcity are widely known for their outstanding on-road driving dynamics and quietness, thanks in part to the front and rear independent suspension. Variable-rate rear springs deliver improved on-road handling and comfort, complementing the vehicle's off-road capability. Premium on-road manners are enhanced with more than 5,400 welds in the body alone. The independent front and rear suspension features isolated front and rear suspension cradles along with variable-rate rear springs to deliver improved on-road handling and comfort while complementing the Grand Cherokee's legendary off-road capability. The rear suspension also allows the spare tire to be stored inside the vehicle as opposed to underneath.
Grand Cherokee's steering also has been carefully calibrated for the right amount of assistance, whether cruising the 10 or twisty two-lane mountain roads through Santa Rosa and San Jacinto national Park. Electric power steering adds new steering options, including Sport, Comfort and Normal.
