New Jeep Cherokee revealed for 2019 launch

Jeep’s latest Cherokee will be available in showrooms from next year, with an evolved design, larger boot and new technology.

The facelifted model will be offered with one engine choice and two trims, when it goes on sale.

Prices have not been announced yet but only the higher-spec Limited and Overland models will be sold in the UK.

A 2.2-litre diesel engine with 195PS and a nine-speed automatic transmission will power the new model, with the option of all-wheel drive.

The front end has been given a new look with a sharper nose, while the rear tailgate has also been redesigned.

Inside, a Uconnect 8.4-inch infotainment system gives control of on board features, including climate and audio, plus smartphone connectivity.

Limited models feature Nappa leather-trimmed electrically adjustable and heated front seats, carpet covered cargo space, seven-inch color TFT configurable instrument cluster, 18-inch painted aluminum wheels, sat-nav, hands-free power tailgate, Adaptive Cruise Control-Plus with Stop and Go function and front parking sensors.

The top of the range Overland adds 19-inch polished aluminium wheels, body-coloured painted fascias and CommandView dual-pane power sunroof. The interior features soft Nappa leather-trimmed and ventilated seating, leather wrapped dashboard, Zebrano wood-accented heated steering wheel and heated rear seats.

The new Cherokee will be available with PCP, PCH and Hire Purchase but also an Advance Payment Plan where customers pay half of the price of the vehicle up front, make no monthly payments and, at the end of the one or two-year contract, can choose to keep the car, return it or trade it in for a new model.
