Grand Cherokee Limited XS, on sale with either 2.7 CRD or 4.7 petrol engines, features metallic paint, sat-nav, rear-park assist, 17 inch ‘Rogue’ alloy wheels, single CD/radio with steering wheel controls, sunroof, air conditioning including climate control, leather interior and chrome rock rails.

The entry-level Grand Cherokee Sport, which was launched with 4.0-litre petrol and 2.7-litre CRD engines in the UK in March 2004, features air conditioning, six-way power adjustable cloth seats, front fog lamps, 16 inch alloy wheels and single CD/radio.

Simon Elliott, Managing Director of Chrysler and Jeep in the UK, said: "The Grand Cherokee, which achieved this year’s ‘World’s best off-roader’ award from 4x4 magazine, offers outstanding four-wheel drive capability, which you can use either off-road or in every day driving conditions. These two new special editions make the Grand Cherokee even better value for money, with rear park assist and sat-nav as standard."
