A while back it was Saif Ali Khan who purchased a swanky new Jeep SRT for his son Taimur Ali Khan, though the toddler could hardly realise what it was. Well, off late there has been a spate of new acquisition by celebrities in the vehicle department. In fact, Jimmy Sheirgill acquired the Mercedes Benz G-Wagen followed by Jacqueline Fernandez gifting a Jeep Compass to her hair and makeup assistant, and Varun Sharma getting a BMW Series 6 GT and now Farhan Akhtar has got himself a Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV.
While the keys to the new car were handed over to Farhan by the India President and Managing Director, Kevin Flynn at a dealership in the city, the vehicle itself is the company’s flagship offering. In fact the Jeep Grand Cherokee takes on the Mercedes-Benz GLS, Audi Q7 and the likes with a 3.0-litre turbo diesel engine that makes 240 bhp. Another variant of the car comes equipped with a 3.6-litre V6 Pentastar petrol engine that churns out 286 bhp however it is not clear as to which engine rests under Farhan Akhtar’s Grand Cherokee.
If that wasn’t enough the Cherokee comes loaded with cutting edge tech alongside suede premium headliner, acoustic windshield and full side glass, Auto Noise Cancellation, premium Berber carpet mats and a Harmon/Kardon 19-speaker, 825 amp music system with three sub-woofers.
