A plethora of safety technologies and other features have been added to the 2018 Jeep Cherokee.
For 2018, the Cherokee range starts out with the base Latitude trim, complete with 17-inch wheels, fog lamps, HID headlights, a reverse camera, body-color mirrors, door handles and roof rails.
New to the Cherokee range is the Latitude Plus trim. Based on the standard Latitude, it also includes an 8.4″ Uconnect radio and touchscreen, SiriusXM Radio, Passive Entry/Keyless Go, cloth seats with leather inserts, leather steering wheel, 8-way power driver seat, ambient lighting, custom 17″ wheels and an AC outlet for the center console.
Meanwhile, it’s the 2018 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk and Limited models that have received the most important updates – such as blind-spot monitoring, Cross Path Detection and ParkSense Rear Backup Warning.
All up, the 2018 Cherokee range consists of the Latitude, Latitude Plus, Limited, Overland and Trailhawk. Both the Latitude and Limited can be optioned with the Altitude Black-Out Appearance Package.
Two powertrains are on offer, a 2.4-liter inline-four and a 3.2-liter V6. Both can be joined by an all-wheel drive system and are mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The V6 also has start-stop technology.
