The new Jeep Cherokee has made its debut at the New York Motor Show, ahead of its arrival in showrooms later this year.

The mid-size SUV will rival the new Ford Kuga and comes with the option of a revolutionary nine-speed automatic gearbox. It is said to be 45 per cent cleaner than the outgoing model, with improved economy and reduced emissions across the range. Specs for US cars have been announced, with buyers getting the option of a 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine or a larger 3.2-litre V6. However, when the car goes on sale in the UK, we expect the company to offer a more economical 2.0-litre diesel, too.

Although part-time four-wheel drive will come as standard on the Sport, Latitude and Limited models, Jeep is offering two further options for those requiring extra off-road ability. Aside from the traditional 4x4 system, an upgraded set-up with better ground clearance and low-range mode will be offered, as well as a top-spec arrangement with a rear-locking differential.

Complementing this, Jeep’s traction control is available with up to five customised modes for varying terrain. It’s just one of more than 70 safety and security features available in the Cherokee, including parking assist technology, collision and lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and electronic stability control.

Inside, the Cherokee features a seven-inch, full-colour instrument cluster, capable of displaying step-by-step sat-nav instructions, speed, safety warnings and Jeep-specific features including Selec-Terrain traction control and Adaptive Cruise Control-Plus.

Alongside it sits a five-inch touchscreen for multimedia and mobile connectivity. A larger 8.4-inch screen is also available, in addition to power adjustable seats, heated steering wheel and optional wireless charging pad for specific mobile phones.

Available in 11 exterior colours, the all-new Jeep Cherokee will arrive in the UK in June and prices are expected to start at £24,000.
