We saw the Xplore FJ Cruiser at SEMA, and then the company appeared in Moab to show off its all-new Xplore Wrangler. Now the adventurous minds at Xplore are ready to pull back the sheet off its latest creation – the Xplore Grand Cherokee.
We're going out on a limb here, but we think this Jeep is Trail Rated. At least it appears that way thanks to the the beefy BFGoodrich Mud Terrain tires wrapped around Method Race wheels. We don't have the official spec sheet just yet, though we know the past Xplore vehicles have been outfitted to handle plenty of tough terrain. The sinister flat paint scheme might not help with Jeep's off-road capability, but it certainly helps give the Xplore Grand Cherokee a darker edge.
As with the rest of the Xplore family of vehicles, the goal behind this vehicle is to promote awareness of our national parks. Xplore wants you to... well, explore. When you purchase an Xplore Grand Cherokee, you're given a one-year pass to America's national parks. You also get a one-year subscription to the Xplore Lifestyle Journal, which talks about the places you should be taking your vehicle.

Venchurs takes the iconic Jeep Grand Cherokee to the next level for those that want to get dirty in style.
Adrian, MI (June 30, 2011) – Venchurs unveiled the newest XPLORE Adventure Series vehicle
today at its headquarters in Adrian, Michigan. The XPLORE Grand Cherokee is a hand-built,
special edition Jeep for enthusiasts that want a premium SUV that's more at home on a dirt trail
than in front of fancy restaurants.
"Over the last 70 years, Jeep has defined true off-road capability and introduced the world to
the great outdoors - the Jeep Grand Cherokee is an amazing vehicle," states Jeff Wyatt, CEO
of Venchurs. "We feel privileged to offer this special version designed to deliver more power,
capability and satisfaction to faithful Jeep enthusiasts."
The XPLORE Adventure Series Grand Cherokee is finished in a signature special matte clear
titanium grey paint with a charcoal leather interior by Katzkin. Underneath it features a modified
suspension package and some very serious hardware from Mopar, BF Goodrich and Method
Racing. Special color and trim details are featured and more accessories are available.
XPLORE Grand Cherokees will initially be available only as built-to-order custom vehicles from
Venchurs. Along with the XPLORE Jeep Wrangler, the XPLORE Grand Cherokee is available
through select Jeep dealerships nationwide. Each XPLORE Jeep owner receives a free, one-
year Annual Pass to all National Parks and other Federal lands, a one-year membership in
XPLORE CLUB and a subscription to XPLORE Lifestyle Journal; a high-quality quarterly
featuring amazing places to go, fun things to do and interesting people. For every XPLORE
Jeep sold, a donation is made to the National Park Foundation.
