Summit Offers Class-leading Luxury
With features such as a dual-pane sunroof, 19-speaker symphonic sound and a plush interior that rivals your favorite easy chair, the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit edition sets a very high bar in the mid-size SUV category. Aside from providing extreme comfort, the Summit is also a workhorse that can two up to 3,500 pounds with a fuel range of 639 miles. Choose the 4×4 version and you’ll be the king of the trail in your off-road group. Take the new Summit for a test drive by visiting Chapman Payson.
Choose Gas or Diesel Engine
The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of the few midsize SUVs that offers a choice of gasoline or diesel engine. The standard is the 3.6L V6 gas motor with 24-valves. Opt for the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 for more torque and better fuel economy. The diesel package also comes with a 220-amp alternator, a 3.45 rear axle ratio to increase economy, and a fuel tank that holds six gallons more than the gas alternative. Both engines come with an 8-speed automatic transmission engineered specifically to get the most power and fuel efficiency.
Add Signature Leather for Ultimate Luxury
Choose the option for the Signature Leather-Wrapped Interior Package on the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit and you get a plush cabin that makes daily commutes or long drives much more enjoyable. Leather-covered multi-stage airbags sense just how bad a crash is and deploys with varying force levels. Premium leather seats with thick bolsters hug you like mother swaddling a baby. Leather wrapped panels and other accents just add to the sophistication of this package. If you long for the days when you lived on the beach, the Summit also has a California Edition that adds 20 by 8 inch platinum wheels, body color trim, molding and mirrors, and special platinum molding highlighting the windows.
Choose From 10 Different Trim Packages
If you find you don’t need the ultimate in luxury, the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers 10 total trim packages with varying prices. The base Laredo starts at just a skosh over $30,000, but still offers features like cruise control, hill start assist, keyless enter-n-go and remote keyless entry. Celebrate Jeep’s birthday with the 75th Anniversary Edition Cherokee, that comes with a special paint package reminiscent of Jeep’s earliest days. View the entire lineup of Cherokees by taking a quick visit to Chapman Payson.
Year End Savings Add Up to Thousands
With a 20 percent markdown and savings totalling nearly $8,000 on select 2016 Jeep Cherokees, now is the time to head to Chapman Payson Auto Center to get into a new vehicle. The Jeep Cherokee is a great vehicle for a daily commute or to take a weekend exploration into the back country. With models getting up to 30 mpg on the highway, the Cherokee offers a perfect combination of efficiency and utility, capable of seating five adults comfortably with plenty of room for camping gear, luggage or the weekly shopping. Special models let you pick the vehicle that most identifies with your personality and desire for comfort, off-road ability or value.
Overland Puts You in Lap of Luxury
Starting at just a hair under $35K, the Jeep Overland is an affordable luxury SUV that provides a sophisticated look with herculean capability. Leather is abundant in the cockpit, showing up on the instrument panel, steering wheel and on the Nappa leather-wrapped seats. You’ll love the infotainment system with 3-D navigation and a premium Alpine stereo system that wraps all the passengers in a symphonic embrace. Pick one of the Jeep ActiveDrive four-wheel drive systems and you’ll be ready for whatever Mother Nature throws at you, whether it’s exploring a trail deep on the Mogollon Rim or handling a sudden snow storm on the way to Strawberry. Right now qualified buyers can lease the Overland for just $264 a month on a 42-month contract.
75th Anniversary Cherokee Honors Lineage
You can get the 75th Anniversary Jeep Cherokee in Recon Green if you really want to be true to the colors that started it all during World War II, but there are a number of other hues to pick from. With special accents and badging to go along with the technology that makes Jeeps so popular today, the anniversary edition honors the tradition of the brand. This Cherokee is a real value, including standard features like an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment center, dual-pane sunroof and 8-way power driver’s seat with adjustable lumbar support. Stylish seats with a mesh insert are both tough and comfortable. Contrasting piping makes them standout with a bit of flair uncommon in tough off-road vehicles. Choose the available V6 Pentastar engine and Command-Trac 4×4 system to turn this compact SUV into a beast on the trail. You can view the entire lineup of Jeep Cherokees and pick the one that best suits your needs and pocketbook by making a quick trip to the Chapman Payson Auto Center.
The Only Jeep That Matters to Serious Off-roaders
Although Jeep has a number of vehicles that are perfectly competent both off-road and on, the only Jeep that really matters to any serious off-roader is the one that hasn’t changed the basic design much since first introduced in World War II. Aside from the relatively recent addition of a 4-door Unlimited model, the Jeep Wrangler is one of those things in life, like death and taxes, that you can rely on year after year. The go-anywhere Jeep hasn’t changed that much for 2017 in anticipation of an all-new model for 2018, and that suits Wrangler fans just fine. The latest entry into the Wrangler lineup will be arriving any day at Chapman Payson, just in time to explore the fall colors on the Mogollon Rim.
Few New Wrinkles for 2017
Although the basic design of the Wrangler hasn’t changed for 2017, expect a few new touches to freshen up the beast. LED fog lights and headlamps are new for this model year on some models, and a cold weather equipment group is now an option for the Sport and Sport S. Heated mirrors, heated seats and an engine cooler can come in handy in the cold country around Payson. Heavy duty mats make it a snap to empty your new vehicle of any snow or slush you might track in while hunting. The standard 3.6L V6 Pentastar engine is a tried and true workhorse in many Chrysler products and the Wrangler is no different. It pumps out 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, more than enough to power out of trouble when you take it off-road.
Diesel, Hybrid Scheduled Down the Road
Chrysler said earlier this year that the next-generation Wrangler will eventually offer a diesel engine and a hybrid option, but both those won’t be for another 5 years or so. Don’t expect a Wrangler to immediately get 50 mpg on the highway with the hybrid model. Chrysler calls it a “mild hybrid,” which means the electric engine will support the gasoline engine to help fuel efficiency. You will not, however, be able to run the Wrangler on electric power alone. The same system is also scheduled for use in the Ram pickup truck. Stay tuned to Chapman Payson for more information on this innovative technology as the release date draws nearer.
Wrangler Comes in 10 Styles
The Jeep Wrangler offers plenty of choice for those looking for a unique take on the tough trail boss. From the base Sport model, Jeep offers 10 different trim levels and special editions. All models come with variations of the Jeep tough 4-wheel drive system, but if you really want to tackle the hard trails you need to take a look at the Rubicon and Rubicon Hard Rock models. Named after one of America’s toughest off-road excursions, the Rubicon has mechanical lockers, the premium Rock-Trac 4×4 system and features like hill descent control to keep things from getting a little too hairy on those steep declines. Test drive a Wrangler today at Chapman Payson and you’ll never want a different off-roader.
Plenty of Time to Gear Up for Colorful Adventure
Newcomers to the Valley of the Sun might be surprised to know there are areas in the state that abound with stunning colors of autumn when the leaves change colors. Back East people drive for hundreds of miles just to see the beauty that nature provides. You can get the same color show here in Arizona by heading a couple of hours out of Phoenix. To get up close to the most stunning exhibitions of color, it helps to have the 4×4 system that’s been taking Americans off-road for decades. Visit Chapman Payson and see how a new Jeep can make your colorful adventure more fun.
Take Long Route to Flagstaff
For one of the prettiest fall drives in the state, head up the Beeline Highway to Payson and then continue on State Route 87 through Pine and Strawberry until you get to Long Valley. You can fill up with gas here or stop in at the diner, but then head left on Forest Road 3 to Flagstaff. You’ll pass by Mormon Lake and Lake Mary, where you’ll see some fall colors, but the place to get out your camera is out by the Snow Bowl. You can either hike the Aspen Nature Loop, or hop on the Snow Bowl chairlift to get some aerial shots of the pretty colors.
Oak Creek Canyon Provides Perfect Escape
Just north of Sedona on Route 89 is Oak Creek Canyon, a winding two-lane road that takes you through some of the prettiest rock formations and color changes in the state. There are plenty of oak (as you might guess) and maple trees here that provide a hue familiar to those from the Midwest. Stop off and take a hike through the West Fork Trail to really immerse yourself in the natural beauty of Arizona. From there, you can continue north on 89 until you hit Flagstaff for the aforementioned spots.
Boyce Thompson Arboretum Offers Festival
If you’re out east of the Valley putting your new Chapman Payson Jeep to the test on some of the trails around the Superstition Mountains, it’s just a stone’s throw to continue on to the Boyce Thompson Arboretum, where nature provides the last chance to view fall colors. The Arboretum provides a fall festival of colors at the end of November that includes music, food and vendors, along with the chance to take some amazing pictures.
Ultimate Jeep Ready for Track or Trail
With almost 500 horsepower rumbling beneath its hood just waiting to be unleashed, the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is clearly the king of SUVs and all vehicles with the Jeep brand. If you’re looking for a Jeep in Payson, head over to Chapman Payson and take a look at the SRT. Although it is not inexpensive, it is tens of thousands of dollars less than competitors like the Porsche Turbo Cayenne, Supercharged Land Rover and BMW X6M. The Grand Cherokee matches all those luxury SUVs step-for-step in terms of comfort, convenience and sheer exhilarating fun. Car and Driver magazine calls the Grand Cherokee SRT a “value-priced mid-size luxury performance SUV.”
Listen to the Roar When You Step on the Gas
Just tromp on the accelerator and you’ll hear and feel the joyous rumble of the 6.4L V8 HEMI engine. The sound of power fills the cabin as you quickly accelerate to 60 mph and beyond while leaving the competition behind. The Grand Cherokee SRT is naturally aspirated, meaning the lack of a turbocharger eliminates the dreaded turbo lag that burdens so many competitors. The engine and 8-speed automatic transmission work in concert to smoothly power through the gears on your morning commute or weekend joy ride. The Grand Cherokee SRT is stylish, so you’ll feel perfectly comfortable handing the keys to the parking attendant during a night on the town. Just switch the SUV into Valet Mode to reduce the horsepower and keep the young driver from having too much fun.
Off-road Adventure Package Boosts Outdoor Fun
If you plan on taking your Grand Cherokee SRT off-road, consider adding the Off-road Adventure II feature package. With an air suspension system that’s the envy of its competitor, this package has air springs that allow you to switch between five different setups for the highway or trail. Boost your ground clearance when you’re off-road, then lower the vehicle for the best aerodynamics once you get back on the highway. The off-road package also includes a full-size spare, secure tow hooks to help get yourself and others out of trouble, and a tough skid plate to protect your oil pan and transmission. If you keep your eyes open while looking for a Jeep in Payson, you’ll see everything from extreme off-roaders to luxury SUVs. For the best of both worlds, tell the pros at Chapman Payson that you’re looking for a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT.
