Cherokees for the Essex boys in blue

ESSEX Constabulary has taken delivery of six Jeep Cherokees for use as traffic patrol vehicles. The county joins Cumbria, Warwickshire, West Yorkshire and Wiltshire - who each use a single Jeep.

Both petrol and diesel versions of the Cherokee are now involved in a wide range of active roles such as motorway patrol work, firearms support, rapid response, rural beat work and official senior personnel transport duties.

The 174 bhp Cherokee 4.0 Limited has a top speed of 112 mph and can accelerate from 0-60 mph in under 10 seconds. The 2.5 Turbo Diesel has a top speed of 101 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 12.5 seconds.
