The all-new Jeep Cherokee was based on Fiat Chrysler Automotive’s ‘small and wide 4x4’ platform that also underpinned the Fiat 500X. It was launched in four variants – Sport, Longitude, Limited and Trailhawk – with three different powertrain options.
The base Sport was offered in a 81kW/152Nm 1.6-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol/six-speed manual variant, as well as a 103kW/230Nm 1.4-litre MultiAir turbo four-potter that was backed by Fiat’s dual dry-clutch manual transmission.
Both the Longitude and Limited were also offered in the latter powertrain. All prices are before on-road costs.
The range-topping Trailhawk featured Jeep’s crawler gear-equipped multi-mode offroad system, all-wheel-drive, underbody protection and different bumpers for better offroad ability.
It was also fitted with the Chrysler-sourced 2.4-litre four-cylinder Tiger Shark naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine, which made 129kW and 230Nm.
