The US manufacturer has officially revealed its new 2016 Cherokee Overland version, presented during the New England International Auto Show.
The model follows in the footsteps of the Grand Cherokee Overland, with a monochromatic appearance that discards the bits and pieces in black plastic and will come packing body-color bumpers, body cladding, and fender flares. We also noticed the HID bi-xenon headlights, updated amount of chrome trim, the power liftgate or the 18-inch polished aluminum wheels. Inside the cabin we find nice amenities such as Nappa leather upholstery, a leather-clad instrument panel, as well as a special steering wheel with Zebrano high-gloss wood trim. Other features include the power front seats, heated / ventilated front seats, Alpine audio system, Berber floor mats, special door sill plates, and a Uconnect infotainment system with GPS navigation. Among the safety and assistance systems available we can remind the standard Parksense backup assist system, blind spot monitoring system, or rear crosspath detection.
Owners of the new 2016 Cherokee Overland can also request the addition of the Technology Group package that has features such as auto high beams, rain sensing windshield wipers, a wireless smartphone charger, and the adaptive cruise control system. Also available is the Heavy Duty Protection package and the model comes packing under the hood the 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 engine churning out 271 horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque. First deliveries are scheduled for this spring and the Overland will set owners back at least $34,695 – excluding the $995 destination fee.
