After a year of significant commercial success, Jeep® returns to the 2013 Geneva Motor Show with three European premières: the new 2014 Grand Cherokee, the new 2014 Jeep Compass and the new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition special-edition model. The three Geneva reveals represent a further expression of the brand’s constant evolution in terms of innovation, technological contents and performance.

2012 was a year of significant growth for Jeep, both in terms of sales and brand image. Jeep was one of the brands boasting the most consistent growth in Europe, with sales growing by almost 20%. A result that also allowed Jeep to set a new all-time global sales record by selling over 700,000 vehicles last year worldwide.

The 1056 square metres Jeep exhibition area in Geneva is located in hall 5. An extreme sandy off-road track and a modern urban skyline are the background chosen to communicate to the visitors the extraordinary dynamic characteristics that belong to Jeep SUVs and their ability to express their personality in the most diverse environments: in the city as well as on challenging off-road trails.

The new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the star of the Jeep stand in Geneva. Already the most awarded Large SUV ever, Grand Cherokee features a new eight-speed automatic transmission. Available on the entire engine lineup, the new transmission significantly reduces consumption and emissions while improving acceleration and securing smoother gear shifting.

New exterior and interior design features characterize each single trim level of the Jeep flagship in a unique way. News for the exterior include new bi-xenon headlamps offered as standard and boasting LED daytime running lights (DRLs), a new design for the wheels and new interior/exterior colour combinations. The use of premium materials, such as Natura Plus leather and high-quality wood as well as the introduction of a new three-spoke steering wheel deliver an exclusive character to the interior. New contents are also offered in terms of infotainment, thanks to the new, advanced UConnect system with 8.4″ touchscreen and the all-new for the brand 7″ TFT customer configurable display cluster.

Legendary Jeep capability comes courtesy of two four-wheel drive systems (Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II), the Jeep Quadra-Lift air suspension and the Selec-Terrain traction management system.

The new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers the most advanced safety features, including updated Forward Collision Warning with Crash Mitigation and all-new Selec-Speed Control: both complement the vehicle’s already rich array of standard active and passive safety system.

The new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee will be introduced across European markets in the third quarter of 2013 and will be available in the Laredo, Limited, Overland trim levels and with a more exclusive Summit top of the range model.

European debut at the Jeep stand in Geneva also for the new 2014 Jeep Compass. Equipped with a new six-speed PowerTech automatic transmission, Jeep Compass boasts an updated exterior and a new, even more refined and comfortable cabin. Thanks to the smooth shifting allowed by the new gearbox, the 2014 Jeep Compass delivers improved driving performance. The new Jeep Compass also offers new safety features, including front-seat-mounted side air bags and ParkView rear backup camera and a rich array of features for increased on board comfort when driving in the city and on off-road trails.

Standard features include air conditioning, power/heated exterior mirrors, fog lamps, keyless entry, Cruise Control, a removable/rechargeable light, Electronic Stability Control, Electronic Roll Mitigation, Hill-start Assist, anti-lock disc brakes and 60/40 fold-flat rear seat. The new 2014 Jeep Compass will be introduced across Europe in the second half of 2013 in three different trim levels, including the already existing Sport and Limited and the all-new North model.

The new Rubicon 10th Anniversary special-edition model of the iconic Jeep Wrangler is also making its European debut at the Jeep stand in Geneva. Introduced to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Rubicon trim level – the most capable model in the Wrangler lineup and the most capable off-road production vehicle in its category ever – the new special edition vehicle will be available as a two-door Wrangler or four-door Wrangler Unlimited, both powered by petrol and diesel powertrains.

The exteriors of the new special-edition model feature unique styling cues that deliver to the iconic Jeep Wrangler an exclusive look, including all-new dual-intake Power Dome hood and 17-inch Rubicon aluminum wheels painted black with polished faces and red Jeep Wrangler logo on the outside lip. The interiors offer exclusive Red, leather seats with Rubicon 10th Anniversary logo embroidered into the front seat backs. Red stitching adorns the central console and the leather steering wheel. The new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary special-edition model will be introduced in Europe during the third quarter of 2013.

Jeep Stand The stand underlines the versatility of the brand that stands for personality and technology. A spacious, contemporary-style area was set up to showcase the new technological contents of the 2014 Grand Cherokee. A sand dune landscape evokes the legendary off-road capabilities of the iconic Jeep Wrangler, the most capable off-road production vehicle in its category.

New eight-speed automatic transmission Chrysler Group’s new eight-speed automatic transmission debuts on the 3.0-liter V-6 diesel engine as well as on the V-6 and V-8 petrol engine offerings. New transmission ensures reduced consumption and emissions, while delivering quicker acceleration, a more precise and smooth shifting and also enhancing ride quality to new levels. Fitted for the first time on a Jeep model, the new eight-speed automatic transmission also enhances Grand Cherokee’s ride quality to new levels. Several individual shift maps adapt to specific driving conditions to optimize shift quality. Its intelligent software takes into account variables including acceleration, engine torque gradients, kick-down events and travelling speed to determine the appropriate shift map. The result is automatic shifting ideally attuned to the performance requirements of almost any driving demand with an eye to fuel economy.

New Eco Mode A further contributor to the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s improved fuel economy is the new Eco Mode, which optimises gear shifting and, in V-8 models, Fuel Saver cylinder deactivation. If sportier performance is desired, a button on the center stack allows driver to disengage. In addition, Eco Mode activates Quadra-Lift air suspension system, if fitted, to further enhance the vehicle’s aerodynamics, for optimum efficiency.

New design Exteriors For 2014, the Jeep Grand Cherokee receives an updated style: all trim levels have been given a more premium look and are readily recognisable at a glance. On all models, the signature seven-slot grille is shorter in height, the headlights are slimmer and the lower front fascia has been slightly elevated while the fog lights have been raised and are more pronounced. Together, these changes give the front of the Grand Cherokee a more elegant, sportier appearance while still preserving Jeep’s signature features.

The rear has also received changes and boasts new, larger tail lamps with LED lighting, a larger and more aerodynamic rear spoiler, new bumpers and a re-sculpted tailgate that offers greater visibility. Lower rear fascias are now model-specific, and dual exhaust tips are standard on all Limited, Overland and Summit models.

The following features complete the new design elements equipped on the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee: standard on all trim levels new high-intensity discharge bi-xenon headlamps (adaptive on Summit) with LED daytime running lights, new design of the wheels and new interior/exterior colour combinations that further enhance the Jeep flagship’s image of quality.

Interiors The new Jeep Grand Cherokee interiors are enhanced thanks to the use of high quality materials and model-specific colour combinations. The center stack has been revised and features a new UConnect 8.4″ touchscreen. Controls for radio and climate are found below the screen and have knobs and buttons which are easy to identify and to use. The centre console reveals a new leather-wrapped electronic shifter for the eight-speed transmission. Another new feature of the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the new three-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel featuring sections of fine wood on Overland and Summit models. Optimised in terms of driving position, it features buttons for managing radio, cruise control, telephone and voice commands in complete safety. All trim levels come with paddle shifters mounted on the back of the steering wheel as standard.

Each model of the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has its own unique style, thanks to the adoption of specific materials and colour patterns. Laredo and Limited, for instance, feature dark wood trim on the dash and doors. The aluminium door handle and dash vent bezels, like the trim on the centre console, feature a slight gold hue. Premium cloth seating is standard on Laredo, while Capri leather seating is standard on Limited.

A further exclusive feature found on the Summit model is a nineteen-speaker, 825-watt Harman Kardon surround sound audio system.

Overland and Summit models come loaded with standard UConnect with 8.4″ touchscreen, satellite navigation and CommandView dual-pane panoramic sunroof with power sunshade. Jeep on and off-road capability 4×4 systems The new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee features two 4×4 systems – Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II with rear Electronic Limited-slip Differential (ELSD) – and the Quadra-Lift air suspension system that allows the ride height to change up to a maximum ground clearance of 28 cm (standard on Overland and Summit). All systems ensure Jeep legendary off-road capabilities. Selec-Terrain traction control system The class-leading Selec-Terrain traction management system with five different driving programs has been refined on the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Standard on all Grand Cherokee models, Selec-Terrain has been enhanced through the introduction of the new Selec-Speed Control, in combination with the Off road package, which allows the driver to control the speed of the vehicle, both uphill and downhill, using the steering wheel paddle shifters instead of requiring the use of the accelerator or brake pedals. In addition, the Sport Mode, found on the Selec-Terrain controller of the 2013 models, is now engaged via the shift lever to provide improved on-road ‘fun-to-drive’ capability.

Forward Collision Warning with Crash Mitigation: the device that uses radar sensors to check whether the vehicle is approaching the car in front too rapidly and, if necessary, sends a signal to the driver so that he can intervene to avoid a collision. The system is now updated to brake automatically and hold brake pressure for 1.5 seconds if the driver does not immediately take the corrective action necessary to prevent the collision with the cars in front. The system is standard on Overland and Summit.

New Selec-Speed Control: the device operates with the Hill-Ascent Control and the Hill-Descent Control functions to allow the driver to control the speed of the vehicle, both uphill and downhill, using the steering wheel paddle shifters instead of requiring the use of the accelerator or brake pedals.

New technologies in terms of infotainment The standard equipment for on-board comfort and infotainment delivers customers an array of innovative advanced technologies that aim at transforming every journey in an absolute pleasure. The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is available with the new UConnect system, featuring an 8.4″ touchscreen which shows, clearly and directly, all information necessary for driving and on-board comfort.

These features allow the drivers to keep their hands on the steering wheel and interact with the instruments easily.

All trim levels also include an instrument panel with a new 7-inch user-configurable multiview display, with TFT liquid crystal technology.

Tru-Lock front-and rear-locking differentials provide low-speed manoeuvring when climbing boulders and ascending steep inclines by evenly splitting torque between both wheels, forcing them to turn in unison for extra traction.

Exclusive feature of the Rubicon model is an electronic-disconnecting front stabilizer bar – called the Active Sway Bar System – which delivers additional wheel travel for traversing the toughest trails.
