Jeep has debuted its latest version of the Cherokee SUV, with the new model featuring an updated design, fresh tech and a more-efficient range of engines.
The main design changes from the last edition are a new grille and front facia look paired with LED headlights, new alloy designs and a hands-free power tailgate, with a sunroof also available.
It has also grown slightly to allow for more storage space in the boot and passenger segments, and it also much more practical than before.
The new engine line-up includes a 2.0-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine that produces 266bhp and 400Nm of torque, while being paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The two other new units are a 3.2-litre V6 engine producing 267bhp, and a 177bhp, 2.4-litre straight-four unit.
Available with a 4x4 option, drivers can choose to use only front-wheel drive to improve efficiency, while higher spec models come with Jeep Active Drive II – which helps to make the Cherokee even more capable off-road and also aids towing and driving at slower speeds.
Inside, customers get the choice of two different touchscreen options – seven- or 8.4-inch displays – which are smartphone compatible and have satellite navigation. A seven-inch instrument cluster is also available in the instrument binnacle.
The Cherokee is available with upwards of 80 safety and security systems, with parallel and perpendicular park assist, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, lane departure warning and rear parking camera on offer, to name a few.
Prices and full spec options will be revealed closer to the release date, which is due to be in the second half of 2018.
