Jeep Malaysia revealed its latest special edition model at Publika last weekend, as part of the 2016 Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Sport Edition is the fourth such model, and as usual adds a few key bits on top of the standard GC – these items, worth RM41,200, can now be had for a discounted price of RM32,000 until the end of October.

Most noticeable is the satin white wrap with black racing stripes – coming from the United States, it is offered with a one-year warranty against discolouration and a three-year warranty on workmanship. Meanwhile, there are red grilles, fog light surrounds and badges, as well as 20-inch Mopar alloy wheels shod with Pirelli Scorpion STR tyres.

That price is on top of the cost of the standard Grand Cherokee Limited, priced at RM448,889 – kit includes bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, LED tail lights, keyless entry and start, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats and steering wheel, a panoramic moonroof, a Uconnect navigation system with an 8.4 inch touchscreen, a reverse camera and a nine-speaker Alpine premium sound system.

Power comes from a 3.6 litre Pentastar VVT V6, producing 284 hp at 6,350 rpm and 347 Nm of torque at 4,300 rpm. All that goes through a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission and a Quadra-II full-time four-wheel drive system.
