Jeep shuffles Cherokee range for 2020
Minus one model and plus another, the Jeep Cherokee range for 2020 is otherwise much the same.
JEEP AUSTRALIA has removed its bridging mid-entry level Cherokee and added a more expensive flagship variant to the range this year.
Previously consisting of the entry-level Sport followed by the Longitude, that latter model is now defunct, leaving a $12,000 gap between the cheapest Sport and the next in line Limited, which still sits behind the off-road package Trailhawk and new S-Limtied flagship.
Here’s the new model range and pricing for 2020 (plus on-road costs):
Jeep Cherokee Sport – $37,950
Jeep Cherokee Limited – $49,950
Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk – $49,950
Jeep Cherokee S-Limited – $52,650
The new Limited-S adds $2700 over the Limited and Jeep says that equates to $3750 in added value. The model is further equipped with a grey ‘Granite Crystal’ trim package bringing unique 19-inch alloy wheels, colour-coded roof rails, grille and front fascia, and a dual-panel panoramic sunroof.
Inside we see further enhancements such as premium leather seats, black trim elements, and leather-covered armrest and centre console lid.
Powering the model is a 3.2-litre V6 petrol engine producing 200kW and 315Nm through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Jeep’s Selec-Terrain Traction Management system is standard, giving the model a variety of traction control settings for different environments (like mud, sand and rock crawling).
Additional standard equipment includes 8.4-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, dual-zone climate control, automatic highbeams and headlights, heated and ventilated seats, powered tailgate, adaptive cruise control and keyless entry with push-button start ignition.
The new model range, including the top-line S-Limited, is on sale now.
