Jeep wants to position this Cherokee above its Compass model, which is one reason why UK sales are built around the plusher 'Limited' and 'Overland' trim levels and prices start quite a bit higher than they did with the original version of this fifth generation model - from around £35,000. You can get 7-seat models in this category for that. Still, this Cherokee compensates with generous equipment levels. The 'Limited' trim offers Nappa leather-trimmed electrically adjustable and heated front seats, a 7-inch colour TFT configurable instrument cluster, 18-inch painted aluminium wheels, plus a 'Uconnect' high definition 8.4-inch Navigation System with Apple CarPlay support, Android Auto technology and a premium audio system.
Also included as standard are an all-new hands-free power liftgate, Adaptive Cruise Control-Plus with Stop & Go function and front parking sensors. The top of the range 'Overland' variant adds 19-inch wheels, a CommandView dual-pane power sunroof, ventilated front seating, bold interior accents, a leather wrapped dashboard, a Zebrano wood-accented heated steering wheel and heated rear seats. All Cherokee customers can choose from more than 90 original accessories by Mopar to customise their cars. And there's 'Mopar Connect', an innovative set of Connected Services dedicated to Safety & Security and Vehicle Remote Control.
