Jeep Cherokee offers more kit for your money

The Cherokee now comes with more equipment while leaving pricing unchanged

Jeep has updated the Jeep Cherokee SUV for 2015 with new technology such as an Active-Drive II 4x4 system and Forward Collision Warning (FCW) safety technology. The company has also added new order options for different trim levels and new dual exhaust pipes.

Active-Drive II is designed to improve the Cherokee's off-road performance. It adds a hill-descent control, as well as low-range gears that give the driver more control and more engine power at low speeds, which helps when tackling difficult terrain. Plus, a new neutral mode makes towing easier by disconnecting the rear axle.

Forward Collision Warning is part of the ADG safety technology pack. It provides visible and audible feedback if the car is approaching an object too fast, and brakes automatically if it senses a collision is about to happen.

The Jeep Cherokee Limited trim level now comes with a Cold Weather pack option, which includes all-season floor mats and a heated steering wheel.

Other trim levels get the option of the Safety and Security pack, which is designed to improve visibility. It offers a range of kit that's standard on the Limited specification, including bright bi-xenon light-sensitive headlights, headlight washer jets and rain-sensitive windscreen wipers.

Active-Drive II is only available on the Jeep Cherokee Limited model fitted with a nine-speed automatic gearbox. The ADG safety pack is also only available on Limited model, while new-style rectangular dual exhaust pipes are available on all automatic-gearbox models.

Pricing is unchanged across the Jeep Cherokee range, starting at £25,495 for the 2.0-litre Longitude 140 Manual FWD model. The Active-Drive II Limited Automatic 170hp version costs £37,195.
