It’s game on for Jeep in big country show debut
The new Jeep Grand Cherokee makes its first ever appearance at this year’s CLA Game Fair, the world’s largest country sports and pursuits event.
With more than 140,000 visitors from across the globe, and incorporating the UK’s largest shooting and fishing shows, the Game Fair, which this year is situated at Blenheim Palace in the heart of Oxfordshire, is an ideal venue to take the new Jeep flagship, which was launched in Britain last month.
It will be driven there by Claire Zambuni, who is recognised as the UK’s leading lady in shooting, and is listed in The Field magazine’s Top Best 100 Shots Ever. Claire is a new ambassador for the Jeep brand and drives a Grand Cherokee Limited.
Designed on a new platform to offer the driver premium on-road performance coupled with legendary capability off-road, the new Jeep Grand Cherokee has significantly lower emissions and improved fuel consumption figures when compared with its predecessor.
Its new 3.0-litre V6 CRD diesel engine powers the car from 0-62 mph in just 8.2 seconds and goes on to a top speed of 126 mph, yet the 237bhp unit returns 34.0 mpg on the combined cycle.
The Grand Cherokee range starts at £36,795 OTR for the 3.0 CRD V6 Limited, rising to £43,995 for the 3.0 CRD V6 Overland.
“I am delighted to have the opportunity to drive a new Grand Cherokee,” says Claire Zambuni, who is a council member of the BASC (British Association of Shooting and Conservation) and a member of The Worshipful Company of Gunmakers.
“It’s eye-catching design is stunning and, with a wonderful combination of size, versatility, comfort and superb four wheel drive capability, it will be a top choice for people with outdoor jobs like me.”
