What seems like a car that will revolutionize the world of SUV crossovers, the 2016 Jeep Cherokee promises to deliver outstanding style and unmatched level of performance that will be the envy of its rivals. Hopes are high around the world as this car is nearing its release date. But first, we might see it’s unveiling in the upcoming Detroit Auto Show. We expect a few types of engines, comfortable new interior features and some of the most sought after technology elements of this generation.
2016 Jeep Cherokee Interior and Exterior Changes
It would not be wrong to expect a much more spacious cabin that will comfortably accommodate all the passengers and their luggage. 2016 Jeep Cherokee can comfortably seat five passengers in its leather upholstered seats with embroidered detailing. The car’s centre console will also receive a revamp and will come with an interactive infotainment system and a cleverly placed instrument panel.
Blue-ray player and Harman Kardon stereo system will likely be the entertainment tools to be featured. Additionally, there will be 5 inch touch display, electronic parking brakes, air conditioning and hill-start assistance to aid trekking through rough roads. There will be individual safety airbag to protect the passengers against any unforeseen circumstances.
2016 Jeep Cherokee will receive a complete redesign on its front part as it will now feature revamped headlights and grille along with sleeker air intakes. LED lights are not incorporated into both the car’s front and rear ends, which is expected to illuminate even the darkest of conditions. An aerodynamic spoiler will make its way to the car’s rear along with a wider tailgate and twin exhaust pipes. Like its predecessor, this vehicle will also ride on 20 inch tyres that look superb when in motion.
2016 Jeep Cherokee Engine Options
This car will offer you to choose between two types of engines according to your specific requirements. The following engines are expected to make their way under the hood of this vehicle:
- 3.0 litre V6 Eco Diesel engine upgraded to provide better horsepower of 185 hp and torque of 174 lb-ft.
- 3.6 litre V6 engine with paddle control producing 270 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque.
- 5.7 litre V8 engine producing maximum of 360 hp and towing capability of 7400 lbs.
These engines have been tweaked to provide better fuel economy along with the lower rate of harmful emissions. They will be coupled with the same 8-speed auto gearbox that was found in its predecessor.
This configuration will make a better fuel economic model than its predecessor. It has been estimated that almost 20 percent fuel will be saved as the car returns 22 and 32 mpg for city and highway drive respectively.
2016 Jeep Cherokee Price and Release Date
We are expecting 2016 Jeep Cherokee to turn up in storeroom shelves in the first quarter of 2016. Price can range between $38,500 to $48,000 based on the trim level and the features that you opt. Note that these are all speculative information and actual price and date of release may vary.
