Jeep has officially pulled of the wraps off the European version of the Cherokee which will be making its public debut during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, next month.
The Euro-spec Jeep Cherokee is looking basically identical to the American version and, according to the car manufacturer, the model in question will be sold across the Old Continent with a 2.0 liter four-cylinder MultiJet II turbo diesel engine, rated at either 140 HP and 350 Nm of torque or 170 HP and 350 Nm of torque. The less powerful one will be getting a 6-speed manual transmission and the other one the new 9-speed automatic.
Two petrol engines will become available for the European version of the Jeep Cherokee, besides the diesel mentioned above. These will be a 3.2 liter V6 Pentastar, which has been rated at 271 HP (202 kW) and 315 Nm (232 lb-ft) of torque, along with a Tigershark MultiAir I-4 2.4 liter unit, which will become available in the Middle East and in Russia.
Jeep says that the Euro-spec Cherokee will be getting the same four-wheel drive systems as the U.S. variant, which include the Active Drive I, the Active Drive II and the Active Drive Lock. More than 100 accessories, developed by Mopar, will become available for the model. No pricing details have been announced just yet, and these will probably go public during the Swiss automotive event.
