New Cherokee Brings Luxury Styling to Your Off Road Adventure
Jeep is the automotive brand best known for providing drivers with the tools and capability to confidently go off the beaten path. When the pavement ends, Jeep brand vehicles are only getting started on their journey for adventure. Purchasing a Jeep brand vehicle means that you are either the type of person who is well acquainted with this lifestyle or that you are the type of person who wishes to become a part of that lifestyle. Whatever your reason is, the 2016 Jeep Cherokee is the perfect tool to help you realize your destiny in style.
Adventure Should Never Leave Style Behind
Why is it that in order to be adventurous, have fun, and be a thrill seeker, you have to be basic? While this is in no way a hard truth, society seems to have placed an invisible set of rules on individuals who crave an adventurous life of outdoor thrills. The stereotypical vision of this person that we see in our heads is wearing beige color tones, has no visible signs of makeup on her face, and probably hasn’t showered in days. The car she drives matches her drab personal styling, and the lack of basic features such as air conditioning, only serve to worsen her propensity to skip daily showers.
This, unfortunately, is what people think of when they imagine this type of individual. With more and more professional men and women seeking adventure on the weekend, the perception of an adventure-seeker in changing. Jeep is taking notes on this cultural shift, by providing these people with a car to match their newfound style and desire for luxury.
A Sampling of Each Cherokee Trim for 2016
The newest 2016 Jeep Cherokee model is the perfect example of how adventure seekers can remain stylish and delight in small luxuries, even when exploring off the beaten path.
Even the base Cherokee Sport model gives off a sense of elegance from the moment you see it approaching in your rearview mirror. In-vehicle technology comes standard on the new Cherokee, with a Uconnect infotainment system featuring a 5-inch screen, included on the lowest trim level.
The second trim level, the Cherokee Latitude offers, even more, luxury appointments and enhanced exterior styling. 17-inch painted aluminum wheels provide the Cherokee with a sturdy foundation, while body-colored mirrors and door handles bring a level of conformity that is very much appreciated. Silver painted roof rails line the top of the Cherokee, giving off exceptional styling cues. A ParkView rear backup camera comes standard on the Latitude, fusing performance, styling, and technology together as one.
Drivers who seek out, even more, style and intrigue can opt for the mid-level Cherokee Limited model. With a starting MSRP of $28,995, this 2016 Cherokee adds 18-inch polished aluminum wheels, luxury leather-trimmed seating, and Jeep’s Uconnect infotainment system with an 8.4-inch touchscreen display. The included passive entry system with keyless Enter ‘n Go gives drivers a sense of convenience on top of luxury.
The highest trim level offering on the Jeep Cherokee for 2016 is the trail rated Trailhawk model. Starting at $30,995, the Cherokee Trailhawk is as ready to perform off the road, as it is to impress on the road.

Updated Practicality and Styling Come Standard
While the specific amenities and in-vehicle technology upgrades are dependent upon which trim level of the Cherokee you choose, the interior styling of the SUV is standard across the board. Folding split 60/40 second row seats add a convenient way to store and haul larger items, while the front passenger seat can fold flat for even more cargo capacity.
The intuitive styling of the 2016 Cherokee does more than just impress visually. Every inch of the SUV is utilized for added performance and convenience.

The interior cabin of the new Cherokee is impressively plush and convenient, the exterior styling that the latest version of the SUV features is breathtaking. The newly sculpted body of the Cherokee was created for increased aerodynamics, while the rugged exterior appearance was included for a little bit of extra curb appeal.
Head Off Road with Unparalleled Capability
A Jeep brand vehicle would not be a “Jeep” without the off-road capability the brand is famous for offering. The independent front and rear suspensions on the Cherokee give the SUV a superior on-road handling, while at the same time, provides exceptional performance off-road.

Electronic power steering gives the Cherokee increased efficiency numbers and an impressively tight turning radius of 37.6 feet. The Trail Rated Cherokee Trailhawk model comes most capably equipped for off-road prowess, with skid plates, 20-inch water fording capability, and a one-inch factory life to compliment the off-road suspension system.
Jeep’s Selec-Terrain traction control system provides further control on and off the road, with various settings that correspond with different road conditions. Auto, Sport, Snow, Sand/Mud, and Rock modes are all a part of this intuitive technology, which is easily controlled by a simple spin of the system’s dial.
