Cherokee gets a makeover

August 1, 2008 | By | In New Cars

Jeep’s Cherokee has undergone big changes.

The mid-sized off-roader gets a new suspension and steering system to make it more car-like and refined on the road.

The range drops from two models to one, the 2.8 Limited. There’s a choice of manual or auto transmissions.

The cabin moves upmarket, offering a leather interior, heated front seats that are also electrically adjustable. As an option, there’s a full length canvas roof that is electrically powered and can be opened on the move.

The vehicle also has a bigger boot and more in-cabin storage. Jeep's Selec-Trac II four-wheel drive system is fitted: this anticipates and prevents wheel slip.

Cherokees with an auto gearbox also feature a new hill descent control system.

A 2.8 diesel is the sole engine option and the car costs £24,595 with a manual gearbox. Picking an auto adds £1000.
