A power rear liftgate, blind spot monitoring and a backup assist system are also fitted as standard.
The Overland stands apart from lesser Cherokee models thanks to a body-colored front fascia, body colored door cladding and wheel flares, 18-inch wheels and HID headlights.
"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 Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand - FCA Global.
The 2016 Jeep Cherokee Overland will carry a base price of $34,495 (plus a $995 destination charge), making it $3,500 more than the current top-spec Cherokee Trailhawk. The Overland's final price can rise even higher, though, thanks to additional extras like a V6 engine, a Jeep Active Drive II 4x4 system and a Technology Group.
