Chrysler Jeep enhances range

CHRYSLER Jeep is to boost its Jeep Cherokee 4x4 line-up in January with the launch of the Orvis and the importer also revealed two new models to complete its Voyager MPV line-up. Revealed at the British International Motor Show the new Jeep Cherokee model will become the range-topper in the existing line-up and will slot in just below the Grand Cherokee range, which is also headed by an Orvis version.

Final specification details have yet to be determined but the Cherokee Orvis will be available with a choice of a 4.0-litre six-cylinder petrol engine or a 2.5-litre turbodiesel unit and will be based on the top-selling Cherokee Limited model. The prototype displayed at the show featured leather upholstery and door trim, burr walnut veneer wood trim on doors, centre console and gearshift surround, alloy wheels, CD autochanger, twin airbags, ABS brakes, cruise control and air conditioning.

Reaction to the vehicle at the show will determine final specification - prices will be announced shortly before launch. Also on the Chrysler stand was the 114bhp, 109mph, 2.5-litre turbodiesel version of the Chrysler Voyager MPV, which achieves 33.5mpg on the combined cycle, and the new petrol-engined flagship Grand Voyager 3.3 LX.
