Jeep plans to expand the Cherokee range of 4x4 vehicles with a new luxury ‘Overland’ version which costs from £38,745.
The new top-of-the-range model made its International debut at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. Jeep says it will provide sophisticated style, elegant interiors and premium equipment paired with the Jeep brand's off-road prowess.
Packed with a host of standard equipment, the new Jeep Cherokee Overland comes equipped with a 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission.
With a output of 200bhp it can cover 0-62mph in 8.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 127mph. The Euro 6 unit has a 149g/km CO2 figure and fuel economy of 50.4 mpg.
The new addition features a polished bright front grille, new body-coloured door cladding, front and rear bumpers and wheel arches, new 18-inch polished bright aluminium wheels, standard bi-xenon headlamps, and is finished with an Overland badge on the tailgate.
The car comes in a range of colours: Deep Cherry Red, Bright White, Brilliant Black and Billet Silver.
A host of premium enhancements are fitted as standard, including powered Nappa leather ventilated and heated driver and front passenger seats with four-way lumbar adjustment, memory driver’s seat and mirrors, a new steering wheel with wood insert, anodized silver bezels and vent surrounds, and Berber floor mats.
The interior is available in Morocco Black Nappa Leather, or in a brand new Pearl coloured Nappa Leather finish. Both interiors have no additional cost and both carry the signature Overland logo in premium stitching on the front seats.
Entertainment comes courtesy of a powerful Alpine Premium sound system, while there’s also a Uconnect radio with 8.4-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth and GPS navigation.
The equipment level on the Cherokee Overland continues with, as standard, a stylish panoramic sunroof, power tailgate and ParkSense front and rear reverse assist system.
