Jeep returns to the Geneva Motor Show

Jeep returns to the Geneva Motor Show

After reaching its objective to sell one million vehicles worldwide and following the debut of the first "Italian" Jeep, the brand returns to the Geneva Motor Show.

Jeep will present a range of new product updates, which represent additional steps forward in the process of brand globalisation with a complete range of high-performance SUVs.

The Trailhawk version of the new 170bhp 1.4 MultiAir engine with an automatic nine-speed transmission and all-wheel drive "Jeep Active Drive" Renegade will be on the stand, offering the maximum in terms of off-road performance and character.

Jeep will also showcase its new Uconnect Infotainment system, which is available with a 5-inch or 6.5-inch touchscreen, which will be launched for the first time in the Renegade in June.

Three variants of the Grand Cherokee will also be on display: The range-topping Summit equipped with the new Platinum Pack; the high-performance version SRT, with a top speed of 160 mph reaching 0 to 62 mph in just four seconds; and the Overland 3.0 MultiJet V6 with 250bhp combined with an automatic eight-gear transmission and all-wheel drive Quadra Drive II.

Visitors to the Jeep stand will also find two models of the Wrangler - the new special Black Edition II series and the Rocks Star show car equipped with original Mopar accessories. The spotlight will focus on the Rocks Star show car, equipped with a 2.8-litre turbodiesel engine, which is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive. It features a black satin "US Army" star mounted on the bonnet, a black grille and petrol cap, half doors and a skid plate.
