New Chero­kee com­ing

The Witness - Wheels - - INDUSTRY -

Jeep has in­tro­duced what it billed as the most ca­pa­ble Chero­kee yet at the 2018 De­troit Auto Show.

An ad­vanced two-litre di­rect-in­jec­tion in­line four-cylin­der en­gine will sound puny to Amer­i­cans who think a V6 is a small en­gine, but Jeep said the new mill will en­hance per­for­mance and fuel ef­fi­ciency, thanks to nine gear ra­tios in an au­to­matic trans­mis­sion.

Jeep plans to in­tro­duce the new Chero­kee to Europe af­ter July, when South African deal­ers may also get a few of to or­der for the lo­cal 4x4 af­fi­cian­dos.
