"FCA Canada is pleased to announce that the 2017 Jeep® Grand Cherokee Trailhawk – the most capable Grand Cherokee ever – has been named Four Wheeler magazine’s “2017 SUV of the Year.” The award is given annually by the editors of the off-road enthusiast publication.

“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,” said Four Wheeler Editor Ken Brubaker. “The Trailhawk model, which includes a unique version of Grand Cherokee’s Quadra-Lift air suspension to improve articulation and suspension travel, takes a capable vehicle and makes it even better. In addition to the great functional upgrades, the Trailhawk package adds a number of visual tweaks to create a handsome and rugged appearance.”

Over the course of a week, Four Wheeler’s judges conducted a variety of tests spanning more than 1,000 miles of terrain, evaluating the vehicle’s on-road and off-road performance, as well as handling, ride quality, interior comfort and steering feel. Other factors also taken into consideration include price, fuel efficiency, tire size and ramp travel index, which tests suspension articulation.

“Our new Trailhawk model is the most capable Grand Cherokee ever produced, and we’re delighted the Four Wheeler editors have recognized its outstanding combination of off-road features,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand–FCA Global. “Trailhawk instantly provided Grand Cherokee customers even more legendary Jeep 4×4 capability, quickly becoming one of the fastest-selling and most sought-after models in our lineup.”
