2008 Jeep Cherokee

Looks like a Liberty, drives like a Liberty, but once you cross the pond, it's called the Jeep Cherokee. European specs include the 2.8-liter common-rail turbo diesel (CRD) with a diesel particulate filter but the Cherokee's navigation system, with directions given with an English accent, and swanky interior distinguished the Jeep on a recent test drive.

2008 Jeep Cherokee -12008 Jeep Cherokee -2On a route from Florence to Siena along a scenic highway getaway through Tuscany, the Cherokee accrued approximately 125 miles roundtrip, with bouts of city driving in between.As a first-time driver out of the country, the prospect of driving in Italy was not a little intimidating but considering that the cars are right-hand drive rather than left-hand, e.g. Great Britain, it seemed do-able.

The walled-in medieval city of Siena, with unique street lights hanging from said walls to distinguish each neighborhood, allowed for few distinctive frames of reference. I should have made a better note of the street lights, but I did spot of a Jeep Grand Cherokee parked on the street, apparently by a resident. Like an oversized bread crumb, that marker would come in handy on my way out of town.

The all-new Jeep Cherokee is available with both a 3.7-liter SOHC V6 gasoline engine. The V6 produces 205 horsepower and 232 lbs.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm while the CRD engine enables the Cherokee to claim a best-in-class torque of 339 lbs.-ft. at 2,100 rpm with the five-speed automatic transmission, and best-in-class towing capacity of up to 2,800. Maximum power is 177 horsepower. A six-speed manual transmission is also available.
With the CRD and automatic transmission, the Cherokee earns an estimated nineteen miles per gallon on the highway.

The MSRP on the Jeep Cherokee Limited.2.8 CRD is € 39.560 or approximately $59,340.
