A ceremony to deliver a fleet of 27 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit models to Juventus football players and their coach, Antonio Conte, has been held at the Juventus Stadium in Turin.

The Grand Cherokees delivered were coloured either black or white, after the Italian Champions’ shirt design, and each is powered by the 247bhp 3.0-litre turbo, direct-injection V6 common rail diesel engine fitted with MultiJet II Technology, paired to the new eight-speed automatic transmission.

This initiative further confirms the bond between Juventus and the Jeep brand. Jeep has a global brand reputation with more than 15 million vehicles produced and sold worldwide since the introduction of the first model, in 1941. Juventus has a similarly glorious past: founded in 1897, the Club boasts more than 250 million followers worldwide and has a history of Italian and European football success.

In the UK, the new Jeep Grand Cherokee range starts at £36,995 (OTR) for the 3.0 CRD V6 CRD Laredo, rising to £49,495 (OTR) for the 3.0 V6 CRD Summit.
