China’s current Jeep product portfolio comprises Compass, Grand Cherokee, Wrangler, Wrangler Unlimited and Patriot. Now, the all-new Jeep Cherokee joins the lineup to become the benchmark for mid-size SUVs.
Jeep brand sales in China in 2012 set a record with more than double the prior year’s result and led by the Jeep Compass.

The all-new Jeep® Cherokee raises the bar and is ready to take the mid-size SUV segment by storm – on any continent. Following close behind its world premiere in New York last month, the Jeep Cherokee has its international debut at the 2013 Shanghai Auto Show on April 20.
Jeep® Cherokee sets a new standard for mid-size sport-utility vehicles – The Jeep Cherokee, which will be known in China as “Zi You Guang,” will arrive in volume to dealer showrooms in the China market by the end of 2013.
Boasting a segment-first nine-speed automatic transmission, the Jeep Cherokee delivers up to 30 percent fuel consumption improvement over the outgoing model. At launch in China, two innovative 4×4 systems will be available for all-weather capability: Jeep Active Drive I with a one-speed power transfer unit (PTU) and Jeep Active Drive II with a two-speed PTU and low range.
Housing all this efficiency and capability is a new exterior designed for the future with global appeal. Jeep designers were inspired to create a vehicle that moves Jeep into the next era with a shape that is efficient without losing Jeep DNA and design heritage. The all-new Jeep Cherokee is a vehicle that not only looks efficient and capable, but is efficient and capable – in all on-road, trail and weather conditions.
