Jeep is no stranger to love from the off-road community. Recently, it was announced that the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk was named by Four Wheeler magazine as the 2017 SUV of the Year. The Grand Cherokee has won the SUV of the Year distinction in previous years and this year, the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk was recognized for its off-road prowess, on-road comfort and interior and exterior features. The Trailhawk name means Jeep has added special equipment that adds even better off-road performance, so the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk has impressive off-road capabilities right out of the box.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee for sale today is the top of Jeep’s model lineup, and the new Trailhawk version pushes its performance over the top. The Trailhawk’s Quadra-Lift® air suspension has been specially retuned to give the Grand Cherokee better articulation and suspension travel over rugged terrain. Helping the Trailhawk grip the trail are special Goodyear Adventure tires. The underbody has been given extra protection. Setting the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk apart visually are matte black strips on the hood, and the trademark red tow hooks. It all adds up to a Jeep that’s even more capable than it looks.
Four Wheeler is a leading publication for off-road enthusiasts. Each year, Four Wheeler evaluates new and heavily revised models to name its SUV of the Year. Four Wheeler editor Ken Brubaker said, “The addition of the Trailhawk to the Grand Cherokee model lineup is yet another example of Jeep’s commitment to producing vehicles that are just as nimble and capable in the dirt as they are on the paved road.” The judges put each competitor through a series of strenuous tests designed to highlight any strengths or weaknesses. The Grand Cherokee for sale in Tempe, AZ, proved well-versed and capable through each test earning it the award.
