During the presentation, the brand recalled the way in which it made its debut at Cobo Hall in Detroit in 1992 during the North American International Autoshow. From that moment on, it became a sales success for the corporation thanks to its luxurious character without losing its off-road features.

It maintains the seven bars of the grille although it is now larger and with the addition of active vents that improve aerodynamic efficiency but also act when a greater air flow is required to cool the Hemi V8.

The 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine is associated with a Quadra-Trac II 4×4 drive system and Quadra-Lift air suspension to give it the off-road capabilities that identify the brand. The drive system has an active transfer case that directs torque to the tire with the most grip to prevent the vehicle from getting stuck.
For this reason, the driving modes (Auto, Sport, Rock, Snow, Mud/Sand) are also valuable, as the electronics adapt the systems to the driving conditions. For its part, the air suspension, by varying its height, can improve aerodynamics when driving on the road or be raised to the maximum to provide it with a wading capacity of up to 61 centimeters.
