Review Summary:

The 2015 has a lot going for it and from its looks alone, the latest-iteration of the Cherokee is set to be a crowdpleaser.

Pros

* Great looks matched with a good price.

Cons

* Plain and slightly boring interior.

Looks

We have heard some people call the 2015 Jeep Cherokee “ugly”, but I really can’t understand why. The heavily revised front end looks aggressive and mean, especially with those narrow, squinting headlamps. The grille is an updated version of the familiar Jeep countenance, and comes with chrome detailing. I think it looks fantastic!

Feels

The interior of the Cherokee is perhaps not so aggressive. It takes the form of a very traditional interior, with no real innovation in design. That being said, Jeep owners are generally more interested in crossing deserts than they are playing with fancy cubby holes, and with that in mind the Cherokee achieves what it set out to do.

Engineering

There is no such thing as a Jeep that doesn’t go , and as such the Cherokee comes with Selec-Terrain control, which gives the user five different settings for different terrains. This is accompanied by Selec-Speed, which controls speed between 1-8kp/h, which makes life easier when tackling rocks.

What’s on offer?

There are four versions of the Cherokee available: Sport, Longitude, Trailhawk, and Limited. The standard engine is a 2.4 litre straight-4, which produces 184hp, and the premium option is a 3.2 litre V6, which belts out 271hp. Prices start at around AED 120,000 for the Sport edition, and go up to AED 177,000 for the Limited.

Summing it…

The new Cherokee has a lot going for it, especially that new, original look. Its off-road features will also make it appealing to a younger, off-road-loving audience, especially as its ideal for families, too. I think it is a very good car at a reasonable price.
