During the New England International Auto Show, Jeep unveiled the latest addition to its Cherokee lineup. The premium Overland model will feature a combination of luxury and capability, with a long list of standard features.

Currently, Jeep offers the Cherokee in four models, including the Sport, Latitude, Limited, and Trailhawk. The Overland model will feature new body-color fascias, a bright front grille, body-color door cladding and wheel flares, 19-inch fully polished bright aluminum wheels, standard HID bi-xenon headlights, and an "Overland" badge on the liftgate.

"The new Cherokee Overland model is a direct response to consumers looking for benchmark 4x4 capability that only Jeep can offer, in a stunning, more luxurious package loaded with premium amenities," said Jeep boss Mike Manley, in a release.
