Jeep adds a touch of luxury to the Grand Cherokee and Liberty

Jeep has prepared luxury variants of the Grand Cherokee and Liberty, unveiled at the LA Auto Show.

The new Grand Cherokee variant, dubbed the Overland Summit, is available in an exclusive Rugged Brown paint job. It receives an interior swarmed in leather, heated and ventilated seats, as well as real wood trim. Jeep also throws in the Advanced Warning System and Adaptive Cruise Control group of technologies. The car is priced at $42,495 with 2WD and $45,995 with 4WD (Excluding the $780 destination charge).
