The first Jeep Cherokee was launched more than 30 years ago and was one of the first family-orientated SUVs. The Cherokee now has considerably more rivals than before thanks to the current trend for SUVs. While the Cherokee isn’t the best all-rounder, it’s less expensive than most of its main rivals. The Cherokee has a distinct look and plenty of off-roading heritage, which may sway some buyers. All Jeep Cherokee models get LED daytime running lights as standard. Buyers have the choice of three diesel options, either 138bhp, 182bhp or 197bhp. Jeep has engineered the Cherokee to be a comfortable car that performs well off-road. The Cherokee lives up to Jeep's heritage, with the Land Rover Discovery Sport the only big rival off-road. The entry-level Jeep Cherokee model comes with 17-inch alloy wheels. The basic Cherokee is available as two or four-wheel drive, while the more powerful diesel variants are 4x4 as standard.
