Looking evolutionary

Jeep has prepared a significant facelift for the Grand Cherokee which debuts today at NAIAS, following yesterday's teaser.

The front fascia of the American off-roader has been restyled showing Chrysler 300-inspired headlights and a revised seven-slot grille with an updated bumper. The back gets new LED taillights and modified tail gate and bumper.

Inside the cabin we notice a redesigned center stack with new HVAC controls, while the infotainment systems feature 5- or 8.4-inch touchscreen displays. Other changes include the steering wheel, transmission lever and a new instrument cluster boasting a 7-inch color TFT.

The most important change can be found under the hood where the facelifted Grand Cherokee gets a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel engine for the Limited, Overland and Summit models where it returns an estimated 30 mpg (36 mpg UK or 7.8 liters / 100 km) on the highway. There's also a new automatic 8-speed transmission with paddle shifters which can be connected to all engines.

Full details will be available later today.

yikes, it looks like they just shoved Chrysler 300 headlamps into it and filled in the gaps with mesh and an awkward front end and bumper. The interior however is very well done since before the facelift and it continues to get better, but those headlights.....

The exterior looks worse now, but the interior and the 8 speed tranny is a welcome upgrade.
