2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ceramic Coating Process!

2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ceramic Coating Process in Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights

This repeat Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights area and veteran client of ours we had previously completed a paint correction and ceramic coating on their pickup truck. They are now the proud owner of this 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee they wanted ceramic coated – and guess what? You guessed it! They came right back to us for us to shine up their new 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee with ceramic coating just like we did for their pickup truck. We love when clients bring us vehicles for PPF and ceramic coatings from the dealer because it makes cleaning easier from the beginning.

This ensures it is more difficult for brake dust to stick to the wheels from the get-go, so this 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee with ceramic coating will likely never have brake dust embedded and rusting out their wheels. Brake dust, bug guts, bird poop, water spots, and more can still cause issues for the paint on a ceramic-coated (or PPF’d) 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee (or any of the vehicles we work on). However, all of these contaminants are so much easier to remove, and therefore unlikely to stay on long enough to etch the paint! In addition to the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee ceramic coating on the exterior, we also fully ceramic coated the interior as well, which will prevent stains and make the interior easier to clean!

Typically, we would use STEK clear bra, Llumar, or Legend PPF gloss or matte paint protection film. Next, This clear bra article covers the major differences between clear bra/paint protection film/PPF companies, if any. Moreover, there are minimal differences between major film manufacturers like Xpel, SunTek, Eastman, Llumar, 3M, STEK clear bra, Flexishield, Global, Legend, and more. Importantly, the key takeaway is that the primary differences are in the properties of the adhesive, which installers have to deal with, but generally don’t affect anything the client sees.

is clear bra/paint protection film/PPF the same as xpel film?

Of course, our clients at HHCC frequently ask about Xpel clear bra/paint protection film. Naturally, our clients want to know if Legend PPF, STEK, Llumar, Kavaca, and other brands compares to Xpel at all. Did you know, a lot of people use Xpel to mean clear bra, because Xpel is one of the most popular brands? Besides the information above about clear bra/PPF, we also discuss Xpel and if it’s the same as PPF/clear bra in this article.

– Solo is a one-year ceramic coating from SB3 Coatings. Undoubtedly, this is our most popular option, after SB3 Alpha five-year ceramic coating.

– Omega is a two-year ceramic coating. Interestingly, SB3 Omega, like many other coatings, enhances the vehicle’s gloss.  

– Thirty3 is a three-year ceramic coating from SB3 Coatings. Of note, Thirty3 has a three-hour cure period before getting wet, which is our fastest-drying coating.

– Alpha is a five-year coating, similar to other major brands’ five-year package and 9H. Of course, SB3 Alpha is also from SB3 Coatings.

– Trinity is a seven-year offering from SB3 Coatings. It should be noted that Trinity is a multi-layer ceramic coating.

– Vortex is a two-year coating for wheels and calipers from SB3 Coatings. Unlike many other coatings, Vortex is a high-temp coating.

– Optic is a one-year ceramic coating similar to glass on the market and is used on your windshield/glass surfaces from SB3 Coatings. Unlike Rain-X or similar products, SB3 Optic will last a year. Another critical point is the incredible hydrophobic properties that SB3 Optic has over Rain-X.



– System X Max is a ten-year ceramic coating, and the longest-lasting ceramic coating we offer. Clearly, we have many options that will fit anyone’s budget or desired longevity in the Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights area.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a mid-size SUV known for its rugged off-road capabilities, spacious interior, and versatile performance. Here are some general features and specifications of the Grand Cherokee:

  • Engine options: The Grand Cherokee typically offers a range of engine options to suit different preferences and performance requirements. These options may include V6 and V8 engines, providing varying levels of power and efficiency.

  • Four-wheel drive capability: The Grand Cherokee is renowned for its off-road capabilities. It often comes equipped with advanced four-wheel drive systems, such as Jeep’s Quadra-Drive II system, which provides enhanced traction and stability in challenging terrain.

  • Interior: The Grand Cherokee provides a comfortable and well-appointed cabin with seating for up to five passengers. It offers a range of features, including premium materials, advanced infotainment systems, smartphone integration, and available options like panoramic sunroof, heated and ventilated seats, and high-end audio systems.

  • Safety features: Jeep prioritizes safety in its vehicles, and the Grand Cherokee typically includes a suite of safety technologies. These may include features like forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking.

  • Towing capacity: The Grand Cherokee is often capable of towing significant loads. Depending on the engine and configuration, it can tow from around 6,200 pounds to over 7,200 pounds, allowing you to transport trailers, boats, or other heavy loads.

Ceramic coating is a protective treatment applied to the exterior surfaces of a vehicle, including the paintwork. 

  1. Enhanced paint protection: Ceramic coating forms a durable and transparent layer over the vehicle’s paint, offering protection against various environmental contaminants. It helps to prevent damage from UV rays, oxidation, bird droppings, tree sap, road salt, and other harmful substances, reducing the risk of paint fading, etching, or corrosion.

  2. Increased scratch resistance: The ceramic coating provides an additional layer of hardness to the vehicle’s surface, making it more resistant to light scratches and swirl marks caused by washing or daily use. While it won’t make your vehicle completely scratch-proof, it can minimize the appearance of minor imperfections.

  3. Easier maintenance: The hydrophobic properties of ceramic coating make the surface more resistant to dirt, water, and grime. This means that your vehicle will stay cleaner for longer, and when it does get dirty, it will be easier to clean. The slick surface also helps to prevent contaminants from bonding strongly to the paint, allowing for easier removal.

  4. Enhanced gloss and appearance: Ceramic coating can enhance the shine and depth of the vehicle’s paint, giving it a glossy and reflective finish. It can make the colors appear more vibrant and provide a showroom-like appearance, enhancing the overall aesthetics of your Jeep Grand Cherokee.

  5. Long-lasting protection: Unlike traditional wax or sealant, ceramic coating is designed to be long-lasting, providing protection for several years. It bonds with the paint surface, forming a durable barrier that can withstand the rigors of daily driving, weather conditions, and regular washing.

It’s important to note that while ceramic coating offers numerous benefits, it is not a substitute for regular maintenance or careful driving. Proper washing techniques and regular upkeep are still necessary to keep your vehicle in its best condition.
