New Jeep Cherokee Lineup: What You Need to Know
The new, 2018 Jeep Cherokee gains a new trim: Latitude Plus. The Latitude trim now stands in place of the outgoing Sports trim as the base Cherokee model. There are a ton of new features, regardless of the trim you choose though. Plus, you know that the Cherokee exemplifies the Jeep brand’s capability of off-road prowess. Read on for all you need to know about this mid-size SUV from Jeep.
Latitude Trim: Base But not Basic
Jeep’s entry-level Cherokee trim has many premium standard features. Among them are bright daylight opening (DLO) moldings and body-color mirrors and door handles, high-intensity discharge headlamps, and a backup camera.
Limited Trim: Comfortable and Tech-Laden
The new Jeep Cherokee Limited gains blind-spot monitoring, cross path detection, and ParkSense rear backup warning technology. Plus, if you choose the Limited model you’ll never have to worry about how to open the trunk with your hands full, thanks to this trim model’s rear power liftgate.
Latitude Plus, Overland, and Trailhawk Trim Models
Each of the above trim models is special in its very own way. And we don’t mean that the way a mother would mean it about her daughter or son. Actually, all Jeep Cherokee trim models have distinctive features that make them compelling in their own way. The Latitude plus for example is all-new for 2018, and is all about technology, with an 8.4″ Uconnect system, SiriusXM, a leather steering wheel with audio controls and much, much more. The Trailhawk trim is all about offroading, but it bulks up on new technology for the 2018 model year. Just know this: whichever new Jeep Cherokee trim you choose, you have the option of either a 4×2 or 4×4 configuration. Plus, you have the option of getting your Cherokee with a powerful V6 engine or economical 4-cylinder.
