The new Jeep Grand Cherokee is currently being presented to the international press in Sciacca (Agrigento, Sicily). The car will be on sale from July throughout Italy and across the major European markets.
Mopar, the aftersales Division of Fiat S.p.A and Chrysler Group LLC, is also attending this major event, presenting an example of the Jeep flagship that has been customised with some exclusive accessories, such as the aluminium racing pedal unit kit, the protective mat situated in the boot loading area and the aluminium sill plate distinguished by the back-lit Jeep® logo.
Over 100 Mopar accessories have been dedicated to the new Jeep Grand Cherokee, and they blend in seamlessly with the model in keeping with its technical, styling and mechanical characteristics. Besides, Mopar products are unique because they are developed hand-in-hand with the same engineering teams who designed the vehicle: this direct link is something that other aftermarket companies are not in a position to supply.
Mopar products are dedicated to car owners of all the models from the Fiat and Chrysler Groups, but it is the Jeep clientèle who pay particular attention to the world of accessories and customisation. This is demonstrated by the fact that the Grand Cherokee is among the most accessorised vehicles in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), Asian-Pacific (APAC) and Latin America (LATAM) regions.
Mopar® deals with Parts & Service and Customer Care activities in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) as part of the aftersales of Fiat S.p.A and Chrysler Group LLC. The Division was set up in 1937 and it offers more than 450,000 original spare parts, offering customers of both Groups across over 130 different countries a catalogue that boasts approximately 25,000 top quality accessories.
Only those who truly know every single detail and component of a car are able to look after it comprehensively. That’s why Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Fiat Professional, Jeep and Abarth original parts distributed by Mopar make it possible to retain the characteristics of reliability, comfort and performance over time that the cars can guarantee the moment they leave the factory.
