Jeep Grand Cherokee Generasi ke-5 ‘L’ Debut Dengan 3 Baris Tempat Duduk

Jenama Jeep mungkin telah hilang (berkali-kali) dari Malaysia, tetapi minat terhadap jenama SUV Amerika ini masih kuat. Oleh itu, ada di antara anda yang mungkin berminat untuk mengetahui bahawa syarikat tersebut telah mengeluarkan generasi baharu Grand Cherokee dan kali ini, mereka melakukan sesuatu yang lain sikit. Model generasi ke-5 ini muncul sebagai ‘Grand Cherokee L’, dan tempat duduk untuk 6 atau 7 dengan 3 barisan. Varian 5 tempat duduk akan ditunjukkan pada masa yang akan datang dan mungkin tidak akan mempunyai huruf ‘L’ pada nama.

Jeep Grand Cherokee L mempunyai jarak roda 175 mm lebih panjang daripada model 5 tempat duduk semasa. Ia mempunyai suspensi bebas (multi-link di belakang), hood aluminium dan pintu belakang dengan casis baharu yang menggunakan keluli berkekuatan tinggi yang maju pada 60% pembinaannya. Ia mempunyai kotak enjin baharu yang disempurnakan dengan shock-to-shock tower brace yang meningkatkan local lateral stiffness sebanyak 125%, serta variable-rate air spring suspension pilihan.

Menggerakkan Jeep Grand Cherokee L generasi ke-5 ialah V6 3.6L atau V8 5.7L. Pentastar V6 3.6 liter kini dilengkapi dengan sistem hibrid ringan dan mempunyai output sistem 290hp dan tork 348Nm. Ini adalah enjin semua-aluminium dengan ciri-ciri moden seperti teknologi start-stop enjin, two-step variable valve lift, variable valve timing with dual-independent cam phasing dan banyak lagi.

5.7L V8 mempunyai output 357 hp dan 529Nm. Untuk kecekapan bahan bakar yang lebih baik, enjin ini dilengkapi dengan teknologi cylinder deactivation, yang membolehkannya berjalan dengan 4 silinder dalam keadaan beban rendah. Kedua-dua enjin dipasangkan dengan transmisi automatik ZF 8-kelajuan.

Bergantung pada spesifikasi, Jeep Grand Cherokee L dilengkapi dengan penyediaan pacuan roda belakang atau salah satu daripada 3 set sistem pacuan semua roda. Sama ada Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II dengan gear jarak rendah atau Quadra-Drive II dengan gear jarak rendah dan suspensi udara Quadra Lift. Selec Terrain akan tersedia melalui suis togol.

Mungkin penjaga jenama tempatan Jeep yang baharu akan memutuskan untuk membawa versi RHD Grand Cherokee baharu ini, kerana penerimaan tempatan untuk model seperti Grand Cherokee Trailhawk kurang hebat.

KENYATAAN MEDIA

Nearly 30 years ago, the Jeep® Grand Cherokee began its legacy as the most awarded SUV in history. Today, following four groundbreaking generations of the vehicle, countless industry accolades and nearly 7 million in global sales, the Jeep brand continues to shatter expectations of the full-size SUV segment with the all-new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L.
 
The newest iteration is designed and engineered to deliver an unmatched combination of even more legendary 4×4 capability, superior on-road refinement, premium styling and craftsmanship inside and out, and a host of advanced safety and technology features. The result is the all-new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L, for the first time ever with seating for six or seven.

The state-of-the-art 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L is designed inside and out to deliver unmatched capability and composed driving dynamics. Its renowned 4×4 systems Quadra-Lift air suspension and Selec-Terrain traction management system instill Grand Cherokee L with the Jeep brand’s legendary 4×4 capability. An all-new architecture and sculpted aerodynamic body style combine to improve vehicle performance, safety and reliability, while significantly reducing vehicle weight, noise, vibration and harshness. Designed to maximize overall passenger safety, comfort and convenience, Grand Cherokee L packs a powerful punch with next-generation features and technologies that make it a stand out in the full-size SUV segment.
 
Built at the new Detroit Assembly Complex – Mack Plant, the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L will arrive in Jeep dealerships in the second quarter of 2021 and will be available in four different trim configurations – Laredo, Limited, Overland and Summit. The all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee two-row and its 4xe electrified version are scheduled to start production at the Mack Assembly Plant later in 2021.

All-new architecture delivers world-class driving dynamics and durability
The all-new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L receives a multitude of improvements to optimize ride, handling and quiet sound, while also reducing weight and improving fuel economy. A new unibody design along with three available 4×4 systems (Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II), an available Quadra-Lift air suspension and standard Selec-Terrain traction management system improve on Grand Cherokee’s legendary 4×4 capability.

The use of lightweight, high-strength aluminum closures, including the hood and tailgate, help reduce weight and boost fuel economy. The Jeep engineering team reduced weight by mounting the axle directly to the engine, along with a solid-mounted aluminum front cradle, aluminum engine mounts and steering gear, a magnesium cross-car beam, aluminum shock towers and an all-new electronic master brake booster system. To help meet weight, impact and to improve durability, the Grand Cherokee L body structure employs the latest grades of Generation 3 steel. The next-generation steel gave engineering and design teams the ability to cold stamp complex parts from higher strength materials, which was not possible in the past, creating a more robust and innovative body structure.

Jeep engineers put substantial emphasis on designing a body structure that is both strong and lightweight, balanced yet functional. To achieve this, Grand Cherokee L is composed of more than 60 percent advanced high-strength steel to aid in ductility, usability and energy absorption.

Jeep Grand Cherokee is widely known for its outstanding on-road driving dynamics and quietness, thanks in part to its front and rear independent suspension. For 2021, Grand Cherokee L employs a newly located front virtual ball joint to improve lateral control and a multi-link rear suspension that enables improvement in ride comfort and routine handling. An enhanced engine box with a shock-to-shock tower brace improves local lateral stiffness by 125 percent. A new variable-rate air spring suspension continuously adjusts stiffness to loading conditions to further compliment the vehicle’s legendary off-road capability. Premium manners are enhanced with approximately 6,500 welds in the body alone.

The Grand Cherokee L’s air suspension system boasts several enhancements to deliver a smooth, comfortable ride both on- and off-road:

  • The closed loop air suspension system reuses clean air, resulting in improved compressor durability
  • To quickly change vehicle ride height, the Quick Down Leveling (QDL) feature uses an external valve block and secondary air reservoir, which allows for both axles to lower simultaneously compared with single axle lowering in previous generations. QDL enables faster easy entry setting from normal height
  • Electrically controlled, semi-active shocks on Grand Cherokee models equipped with air suspension continuously adjust to road conditions and driving styles to create the optimum ride comfort for all driving situations

For the first time ever on Grand Cherokee, the front axle is bolted directly to the engine to allow for better management of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) and superior driving dynamics thanks in part to its lower center of gravity. New active/electronic engine mounts absorb more vibration and movement when at idle, but stiffen at higher speeds to optimize ride glide. This is a new feature available on Grand Cherokee and offers a new level of comfort, versatility and performance. An enhanced active noise cancellation system, along with a double-dash body, door seals and acoustic glass round out the enhancements that bring NVH and wind noise down to a whisper.

Grand Cherokee’s electric power steering (EPS) has been carefully calibrated to deliver a superior driving feel and consume less energy. The electric motor works with an adaptive engine control unit (ECU) to monitor steering speed, steering wheel angle and vehicle speed. This allows for varying levels of steering assistance to be applied, for example, when more is needed at low speeds, such as maneuvering through a parking lot, or less when at highway speeds, to enhance overall driver confidence. The EPS system uses a variable-rate ratio to improve maneuverability while maintaining on-center stability in all driving conditions.
