Jeep Grand Cherokee, Liberty get Premium Editions

Grand Cherokee Overland Summit

Chrysler announced this week that two of its Jeep vehicles would be getting “premium” editions, going on sale in the next month or so.  The first is the Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Summit, which packs a lot of goodies into one trim level.  The second is the Jeep Liberty Jet, which adds an upscale appearance to Jeep’s smaller, but fully capable off-roader.  Follow the jump for the details, pictures and press release.

Grand Cherokee Overland Summit Interior

Designed to fulfill the wishes of Jeep buyers looking for more luxury, the Grand Cherokee Overland Summit features real burl wood trim on the doors, steering wheel, dashboard and other places.  Berber floor mats cushion the soles of your feet, while you’re sitting on uniquely-covered heated and cooled seats which feature Nappa leather.  Outside, the GCOS features a unique front end and 20″ polished aluminum wheels, to set it apart from its more pedestrian brethren.  The GCOS will also feature adaptive cruise control, blind spot, rear cross-path and frontal collision warning systems.

Pricing for the GCOS will start at $42,495 for 4×2 models and $45,995 for 4×4 versions, not including the $780 destination charge.

Jeep Liberty Jet

The “Jet” package will be an option package on top of Sport and Limited trim levels of the 2011 Jeep Liberty, and contains mostly appearance-related upgrades.  Four colors will be available, including, “Bright Silver, Dark Charcoal, Brilliant Black and Blackberry.”  In addition to the requisite unique body work all around, the Liberty Jet gets special badging and 20″ polished aluminum wheels.

Inside, the Liberty Jet gets a 9-speaker sound system and a few other upgrades and options.  Mostly though, it’s an outside appearance package, albeit one consumers apparently asked for.  The Jet package will retail for $1,499 on top of Sport models and $995 on top of Limited models.

From Chrysler’s press release, they say consumers asked for the trim levels, so it’ll be interesting to see how many Grand Cherokee and Liberty vehicles roll off the assembly line with these option packages added on.
