In January 1992, Chrysler Group LLC, an American automobile manufacturer, produced a mid size sport utility vehicle or SUV which came to be called the Jeep Grand Cherokee. This was created as a four door sport utility vehicle with a front engine, rear wheel drive or front engine, four wheel drive layout. This was produced under the Jeep brand division of Chrysler Corporation, and it was first developed in 1983 by the American Motors Corporation (AMC) engineers.
The Grand Cherokee was created as a successor for the Jeep Cherokee (XJ), and this was called the XJC Project. Other non-AMC designers were part of this project, including Adam Clenet, Larry Shinoda, and Giorgetto Giugiaro. At the North American International Auto Show held in Michigan in 1992, the Grand Cherokee finally made its debut. The ZJ Grand Cherokee was produced in January 1992 until 1998, and this was assembled in the United Sates, Venezuela, Austria, and Argentina. Among the car’s competitors include the Toyota 4Runner and Ford Explorer, and the Grand Cherokee was restyled in 1996.
In 1994 until 2004, the WJ Grand Cherokee was released and build in US, China, Argentina, and Austria. By 2005, the next model called the WK Grand Cherokee released and displayed at the 2004 New York International Auto Show. The latest version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee is called the WK2, which was produced since 2010 and assembled only in the United States and in Venezuela.
