Roots Trace Back to Willys-Overland Car Company

As the namesake of the new 2016 Jeep Cherokee Overland, the Willys-Overland Motor Company was founded in 1908 and produced a series of cars before being selected by the U.S. Military as one of the manufacturers of the Jeep Wrangler predecessor during World War II. Willys-Overland produced more than 300,000 Jeeps from 1941-1945, and then diversified its lineup to more civilian-friendly vehicles in the years after the war. The name Overland was originally given to a four-door sedan in 1926 and eventually evolved into a trim package on the Jeep Grand Cherokee in 2003 with badging reminiscent of an earlier time. Stop by Chapman Jeep Scottsdale later this spring to check out the latest version with this iconic name.

New Overland Combines Sophistication With Trail Ability

By combining Jeep’s industry-leading four wheel drive system with creature comforts like Alpine audio, parking assist, navigation and safety sensors, the 2016 Jeep Cherokee Overland is the perfect vehicle for a night on the town or comfortably attacking a tough off-road trail. The design of the new Overland features a bright front extension to supply some attitude while body color fender flares deliver an aggressive stance. HID bi-xenon headlights not only illuminate your way, but look cool as heck coming down the road. Eighteen-inch wheels and a bold Overland nameplate on the tailgate complete the exterior look.

Leather and Wood Complement the Interior

With available leather wrapping on the steering wheel, a leather padded dash and rich leather trimmed heated and ventilated seats, the 2016 Jeep Cherokee Overland provides a sophisticated feel. High-gloss wood trimmings, Berber floor mats and an available dual pane sunroof add to the luxury of this mid-size SUV. This is the top-of-the-line for Cherokee trim packages before you move up to the Grand Cherokee model.

Two Engine Choices Let You Pick Power or Efficiency

The new Jeep Cherokee Overland comes with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces an amazing 184 horsepower when paired with a 9-speed automatic tranny. If towing is a big part of your life, you may want to select the 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 that delivers 271 horses. It’s all part of the Heavy Duty Protection Package that also includes a full size spare and skid plates. Add the Technology Group and you receive driver assist features like brake assist, lane departure warning and forward collision warning. See all the features the new Jeep Cherokee Overland offers by taking a trip to Chapman Jeep Scottsdale later this spring.
