New Jeep Cherokee revealed
The all-new Jeep Cherokee is powered by the efficient 2.0-litre MultiJet II turbo diesel engine in combination with the new nine-speed automatic transmission. The new generation Jeep Cherokee is now available in both two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations, offering a choice of two new, sophisticated Jeep four-wheel-drive systems in order to ensure benchmark off-road capabilities under all driving conditions.
The new Jeep Cherokee is also the first mid-size SUV to feature rear-axle disconnect, resulting in reduced energy loss when 4x4 capability isn’t needed and ensuring improved fuel efficiency. The rear-axle disconnect, seamlessly switches between two- and four-wheel drive for full-time torque management without requiring input from the driver.
The new Jeep Cherokee will be introduced in UK Jeep dealerships in the second quarter of 2014, in the Longitude and Limited trim levels. The engine offer comprises the efficient 2.0-litre MultiJet II turbo diesel delivering 170PS. This engine will be matched with the new nine-speed automatic gearbox, which is used for the first time in the mid-size SUV segment. A 140PS version of the 2.0-litre engine will also be available in combination with a six-speed manual transmission.
Throughout the cabin, customers will find interior trim that is soft to the touch and pleasing to the eye. A vinyl-wrapped, stitched instrument panel brow is standard on all models and the stitching carries over to the centre console armrest and front door armrests. The new Jeep Cherokee is available with three interior trim choices inspired from exotic locations and landscapes around the world, such as Morocco, Grand Canyon and the Italian Mount Vesuvio.
