Cherokee stays four-paw this side of Tasman

Jeep's introducing a 2WD version of the KK Cherokee in Australia, in Sport and Limited trim with the 3.7 litre V6. Over here? I put the question to the Jeep New Zealand boss, Todd Groves. "No, not at this point," he replied. The "at this point" might be a bit of a worry to those concerned with the dumbing-down of the brand, but since I don't much like the current Cherokee, I don't care either way. As an aside, 2WD Cherokees have sold well in the US since coming available in 1987.

  1. Agree. How can a company that makes Grand Cherokee and
    Wrangler come up with such a dud? Looks as ugly as it performs.
