New: Jeep Cherokee Overland (updated)

by David Zatz on

Jeep made a surprise unveiling of the new Cherokee Overland at the New England Auto show today.  The new model sits atop the Limited, with a list price of $35,690 including destination; it is due to arrive at dealerships in the spring.   (Reliable source oh2o added that the AWD version would cost $39,390; the Grand Cherokee Overland AWD starts at $48,190.)

On the outside, the Overland has new body-color fascias, door cladding, and wheel flares, with a bright front grille and chin extension, new 18-inch polished aluminum wheels, and HID headlamps.

Inside, the Jeep Cherokee Overland has a power front driver and passenger seat with four-way power lumbar support, a new steering wheel with Zebrano high-gloss wood trim, bright door sill plates, Berber floor mats, Nappa leather seats (ventilated/heated in front), Alpine audio, 8.4 inch touchscreen display, navigation, satellite travel and traffic, Uconnect Access Advantage, and standard memory driver’s seat, radio and exterior mirrors.

The Overland also makes normally optional equipment standard: a power liftgate, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-path detection, rear backup assist, and premium insulation.

The Jeep Cherokee Overland 4×4 comes with 8.2 inches of ground clearance and Jeep Active Drive II, which includes a two-speed power transfer unit, low range, and a disconnecting rear axle for fuel efficiency. It also includes Selec-Terrain, with automatic, snow, sport, and sand/mud modes. The Overland can be purchased with either engine.
