AUBURN HILLS, Michigan – The 2016 Jeep Cherokee Overland, a new top-of-the-line version of the midsize SUV that emphasizes luxury and off-road capability, will arrive at Jeep dealerships this spring.
The Cherokee Overland is priced at $34,695, including a $995 destination charge.
In comparison, the base 2016 Cherokee Sport starts at $24,390, including shipping.
Inspired by the popularity of the Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland model, the Cherokee Overland targets high-end versions of the Chevrolet Equinox, Ford Escape, Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4.
“We expect the new Overland model will attract even more consumers into our Jeep showrooms going forward,” said Mike Manley, head of Jeep brand, in a statement on Thursday.
Standard equipment includes Jeep’s Active Drive II 4×4 system. It includes a two-speed power transfer unit and a low-range crawl mode.
Exterior touches include new body-color fascias with a bright front grille and chin extension, body-color door cladding and wheel flares, new 18-inch bright aluminum wheels, standard HID bi-xenon headlights and an “Overland” badge on the tailgate.
Premium amenities in the cabin include a leather-wrapped instrument panel, Zebrano wood trim and Berber floor mats.
Other features include a standard power liftgate, blind-spot monitoring system and rear cross-path detection.
Edmunds says: Shoppers who want everything on their Jeep Cherokee should be pleased with the premium Overland model.
