Jeep Cherokee is one expensive ride in China image

Jeep has recently announced the official price list for the brand new Cherokee in China as the model in question is now available for order from 375,900 yuan.

The 2014 Jeep Cherokee is now available for order in China but the model in question will set you back for at least 375,900 yuan, which is the equivalent of 62,118 USD. Choose the top of the line version and the price will go up to a staggering 549,900 yuan, or 90,873 USD. The asking price for a brand new Jeep Cherokee is so high in the Asian country because the model is imported and taxes are high. Local production of the Cherokee, at the Guangzhou-Fiat joint venture, will start next year.

According to the local automotive media, producing the new Jeep Cherokee generation locally will drop its price by 25 percent, but this will still be pretty high compared to the cost of the model in the United States, where the Sport is priced at 22,995 USD, without the 995 USD destination charge, while the top of the line Trailhawk costs 29,495 USD. Engines available for the Jeep Cherokee in China will include the 2.4L with 177 HP and 229 Nm of torque, mated to the 9-speed auto, and the 3.2L V6 with 271 HP and 324 Nm.
