Jeep Cherokee 2.4 Limited Review
Shark attack!

Introduction, Exterior

Any mention of the word Jeep would immediately conjure up images of the butch hard wearing four wheel drive machine that dominated much of Europe, North Africa and Asia. It was the first true four-wheel drive machine that spawned a whole new class of vehicles.

So it comes as no surprise that the latest addition to the fold has a pretty impressive off-road ability. But the difference is the company has spent considerable effort getting it to be just as competent off the beaten trails.



From the outside, the new Cherokee is a huge departure from last generation’s angular body panels. The new car has a streamlined profile that is more sports car than SUV. Admittedly the new design is unique and take our word for it, looks much better in person than the pictures give it credit for.

Spaceship or shark, it will arrest your attention either way. Most prominent is the seven slat grille that pays homage to the original 1941 Jeep. The two slits where the headlights usually go actually hide the turn indicators and daytime running lights while the actual headlights are below. This is done so that drivers in normal sedans aren’t blinded by its beams.

From the side the Cherokee is actually profiled much lower than a conventional SUV which aids in its aerodynamic efficiency.
