JEEP has revealed the prices for its new Cherokee with a mid-£20,000 price tag for the entry level two wheel drive version.
The front-wheel drive-only 2.0-litre Longitude 140 six-speed comes in at £25,495, and there is a gap of around £10,000 between that and the flagship 2.0-litre Limited 170 Automatic 4x4 version at £35,695.
The Cherokee goes on sale in June, but is available to order now, and initially will be available with a choice of two 2.0-litre MultiJet 2 diesel engines with 140bhp or 170bhp power outputs, and the range will be expanded later in the year to include a 3.2-litre V6 petrol Trailhawk version.
The new SUV comes in a simplified line-up of Longitude, Longitude+ and Limited specifications.
Standard equipment in the well-equipped entry-level Longitude includes body-coloured door mirrors, LED tail lights, 17-inch alloy wheels, dual zone climate control, Bluetooth, DAB digital radio, leather-wrapped steering wheel and rear park assist.
A trail-rated Trailhawk version will also be available in late 2014, offering best-in-class off-road capability, with a distinctive look, suspension lift and special off-road equipment including Jeep's Active Drive Lock system, along with a host of other standard equipment.
Damien Dally, head of brand, Jeep UK, said: "Cherokee has always been – and still is – an important car in the Jeep line-up, and we're delighted now to be able to reveal the highly competitive prices of this stunning latest version.
"It is up against some tough competition in its sector, but Jeep is the original 'Go Anywhere, Do Anything' brand.
"We are confident that we can offer an attractive package at exceptional value-for-money prices to keep it at the front of our potential customers' minds."
