The Grand Cherokee has scored a significant update that also ushers in a Trailhawk version with more off-road smarts and distinctive red tow hooks. A key visual change is a slimmer seven-slot grille as part of a mild design tweak front and rear.

The interior has also been given a refresh, ditching the walking stick-esque gear selector for a more traditional lever that should make quick three-point turns easier. There’s a new windscreen designed to reduce noise, a lane departure warning system on all models and a trailer hitch camera view. The V6 now makes 213kW and gets a fuel-saving stop-start system.
