2016 Jeep Cherokee Trims
Few vehicles flawlessly converge on-and off-road driving. It is nearly impossible to find a mid-size SUV that you can take out into the brush and then bring back into the city. Jeep has managed to do this by combining the rugged, edgy style that the brand is known for with the smooth, comfortable ride that you’d expect out of a family sedan. The 2016 Jeep Cherokee is an economical off-road vehicle that looks great in town.
