In 2018 is ie updated, the Jeep Cherokee. A good reason to take the ‘old’ drive and, as the new is, they could compare. The Cherokee, as of nearly 49 thousand euro. I drove the ‘thickest’ which is slightly more than 67 thousand euro costs.

He’s been a little while; the strong but audible to the existing 2.2-litre ‘big’ diesel engine. Still pulls the 200 often and 440 Nm strong four-cylinder the to 1,850 kilograms of heavy SUVS in the sport mode in 8.5 seconds whistling and without difficulty to 100 kilometers per hour. Until that moment the 9 gears storey automatic transmission seamlessly from opposition to opposition. Only the first mile, as the engine and gearbox are cold, this happens only at higher speeds and less flexible.
Well the 2.2 is also that he at 2,500 pounds it can pull. A 140 hp tweeliter diesel version is only reserved for the model year Cherokee that is only comes with a manual gearbox. And if you want a petrol engine in your Cherokee, then you’re going to have to take with a 3.2-liter V6. That was 272 hp and always a machine.
The top speed of 204 miles per hour, you will rarely and perhaps even never tap. But to the 130 that I’ve driven, the Cherokee is a very fine car. He feels sturdy and strong and gives the occupants a safe feeling. The comfort of and in the Jeep meets the needs and requirements of the European motorists and is on the same level as that of the league as the Land Rover Discovery Sport and, although they are less on off-roading is grafted; the Jaguar F-PACE, and Mercedes-Benz GLC. With the luxury and comfort is, in any case.
A new model arrives is a good thing. Very wrong is the current Cherokee well it wasn’t, but that straight flat edges above the wheel arches can be really not. They make the car distinctive, but it does not fit in with the rest of the modern design. This is where especially the whole flat headlights on that are pretty nice, but just a little less brutal than such a tough looking Jeep really ought to be. I bet that Jeep those headlamps and wheel arches with the next model radically going to change.
Where the well is, the interior of the Cherokee. Ok, the diesel is sometimes quite present, but with a little extra insulation in the new and that euveltje is resolved. At the opening and closing of the doors, you will hear the ruggedness of the Jeep. A dull thud as the door close completely, so it should be in a SUV of this caliber. If you are in the right size chair, you will have thanks to the electric seat adjustment fast your preferred position is found. The dashboard is modern and easy to navigate. The beautiful bright, clear visible and easy-to-read instruments in combination with the scattered subtly affixed to the interior and accent lighting make you feel as if you are in a cozy living room.
Of course, there is also a steering wheel and heated seats in this Jeep. In order to convert, you need two different acts on the large bright and easy-to-read infotainmentdisplay. That was easier and quicker to have it done by the operation in the main menu or on the dashboard. Just after the start of the engine are the buttons, however, even if first visible on the screen, but you have to rap them in order also to be able to serve. It is critical, but does not much detract from the luxury and comfortable feeling that Jeep you’re trying to give.
Fifty thousand euro is already a lot of money for a car, even if there is a Jeep Cherokee on the same boot. Fact is that you find yourself riding in this car apart from everyone around you and makes a statement. If you want options, then you go, as with other brands, to pay. With a little more than 17 thousand euros options, you will have still a good running, spacious and distinctive car. But fair to say that you for this money also a lot of other onderscheidends beauty can buy. We have enjoyed our week in the Jeep Cherokee and are curious to see what its successor will look like.
