JeepGarage.org was the first to get spy shots of the 2011 Jeep Cherokee out testing, and now it's apparently come through with exhaustive – perhaps complete – pricing of Jeep's 'I'm bringing sexy back' SUV. According to the documents, the all-new Cherokee will start at $31,480 (including destination charges) for the base Laredo "E" 4x2, climbing to $45,770 for the Overland-trim 4x4. For comparison's sake, the outgoing 2010 model starts at $31,490 including freight, leaving a Hamilton left over to top off the gas tank.
In addition to the new paints and packages, there are 46 new standard and optional features. Some of them are unequivocally true and new, like including two transfer cases, Adaptive Speed Control, a larger fuel tank, dual-pane sunroof, bi-Xenon headlamps, and of course, illuminated cupholders. Others, like the "Best-in-class premium interior" we're going to have to see to validate.
On top of that are eight pre-packaged trim groups: Electronic Infotainment System, Luxury II, Off Road I & II, Popular Equipment Group, Technology Group, Trailer Tow, and Trailer Tow IV. Naturally, they can't be had across the model range, and a couple of them have intriguing requirements, like the Luxury II which can only be fitted to the Limited models that have the black/light frost beige interior. The new model will finally go on sale later this year, and the way it's looking, this Cherokee might just fulfill the promise of its reveal, and its maker.
