What’s New For the 2017 Jeep Cherokee in Central New Jersey

2017 Jeep Cherokee Summit NJ

One of the most popular vehicles at our Union County NJ dealership location is the 2017 Jeep Cherokee because of the capabilities and features you can get in a smaller package than typical SUVs. That means it feels more like you’re driving a car on roads like I-78, the Turnpike and the Parkway.

There are a few changes that you should know about from the initial announcement of the 2016 Cherokee, including the first full year of a new trim and updated standard features in select models.
