Mopar Unveils the Jeep Cherokee Overland
The Jeep Cherokee Overland you can see in the adjacent image is also included in the new six-vehicle line-up. Based on a built-for-export 2011 Jeep Cherokee (Jeep Liberty in the U.S.) equipped with a 2.8-liter CRD 4-cylinder turbo diesel and Selec-Trac II 4x4 system.
ARB offered their steel roof rack, awning, compact refrigerator and prototype rock rails to set the Overland's mood. To increase off-road capability, an ARB 3-inch suspension lift and Old Man Emu shocks clear the way for Mickey Thompson 265/75-R16 MTZ tires mounted on steel wheels. Traction is increased with the addition of an ARB air locker in the rear differential and on-board air compressor.
Mopar provided a host of underbody protection, including skid plates for the front suspension, transmission and transfer case. Additional items from the Mopar catalog include front and rear tow hooks, slush mats, cargo tray liner, sill guards and sport pedal kit. To blend in with the wildlife, an update of the classic zebra safari pattern paint scheme is added to the exterior.
Joining the Jeep Cherokee Overland are the Jeep Wrangler Pork Chop, the Jeep Compass Canyon, the Jeep Wrangler Renegade, the Jeep Wrangler JK-8 Independence, and the Jeep Wrangler Blue Crush.
