For 2016, the Jeep Cherokee compact-crossover SUV sees improvements in driver comfort with revisions to the front seats, steering-column position and instrument cluster. The 8.4-inch Uconnect touch-screen option gains a Drag and Drop Menu Bar, Siri Eyes Free and a Do Not Disturb setting.
All-new last year, the 2015 Jeep Cherokee gets a few additional features. Forward Collision Warning is now available, a backup camera is standard on Latitude, Altitude, Limited and Trailhawk models, and a new SafetyTec option package bundles various electronic aids for Latitude, Altitude, Limited and Trailhawk models.
The Jeep Cherokee is all-new for 2014, replacing the late and largely unlamented Jeep Liberty.
About Jeep Cherokee
Unlike the Honda CR-V or Toyota RAV4, the 2016 Jeep Cherokee crossover SUV boasts genuine off-road credentials worthy of the Jeep name. Even in its most formidable trim level – that being the rugged Trailhawk – the Cherokee surrenders nothing in the way of comfort or handling. When the need arises, however, the Cherokee's low-range mode and three different 4-wheel-drive systems permit everything from light off-roading to rock crawling through passes unnavigable by most Cherokee rivals. Yet, for all its rough and tough bravado, the Cherokee's interior is a luxurious oasis of modern design and technology. Toss in the available V6 engine and standard 9-speed transmission, and you get a compact-crossover SUV unlike any other in the segment.
