In another effort to boost and reinforce the Cherokee’s position in the British market Jeep has come up with a new luxurious trim level. Called Jeep Cherokee Overland, the range-topping version comes with enhanced styling and interior features as well as premium equipment.
The exterior enhancement are pretty good on their own, but to be frank they do little to make the Cherokee’s face any less weird. Compared to the base model, Jeep Cherokee Overland comes with polished bright front grille, new body-coloured door cladding, front and rear bumpers and wheel arches, new 18-inch polished bright aluminium wheels, standard HID bi-xenon headlamps, and is finished with an Overland badge on the tailgate, plus a number of cool new colors.
The upgrades making Jeep Cherokee Overland the top-of-the-line model inside the cabin include 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. You can also choose the color of the leather between Morocco Black and Pearl.
Engine-wise, the Overland Cherokee comes with one option and that is a 2.2-litre MultiJet II 200 horsepower turbo diesel engine paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. You get Alpine Premium sound system, Uconnect, 8.4-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth and GPS navigation, panoramic sunroof, power tailgate and ParkSense front and rear as standard, but can choose between Active Drive I (£38,745) and II (£39,950) all-wheel-drive systems.
