The working volume, as before, is 2.8 liters. However, a more productive turbine did its job: power increased from 177 to 200 hp, and average fuel consumption decreased by 13% - to 7.9 l / 100 km. On paper - solid virtues, but life is not so successful. Two hundred “horses” are not felt: overclocking is hysterical and malleable, as if the food was with a handbrake tightened. And even the close failed to meet the declared fuel consumption. When I gave the car, a joyless indicator was displayed on its on-board computer: 13 l / 100 km. Not a little, considering my calm driving style. It feels like the new engine is quieter than its predecessor, but a slight vibration on the steering wheel still passes.
This car is clearly not for the city. The four-wheel drive control unit is located in it where the “normal” cars have a machine lever. At the "Jeep" the latter is shifted far to the side. This feature remained after restyling, although there are enough innovations in the cabin. Here you have a stylish steering wheel from the flagship Grand Cherokee, and a modified instrument panel, and successful decorative wood trim.
The interior looks good, but in terms of ergonomics is far from ideal

The filling has also changed. The SUV received a modern multimedia system with a hard drive and a touch screen. However, I will not dare to call it the last word of technology: there is a lack of a USB port (there is only an AUX input), navigation with a rear view camera did not appear.
And also in the Cherokee salon closely. Due to the impressive central tunnel, legroom is sorely lacking. The backs of the front seats inhospitable pressure on the shoulder blades.
The assembly also deserves complaints. The gaps between the trim elements are large and uneven, and a “cricket” has awakened on the bumps. He put a piece of paper in the gap between the center console and the tunnel - the creaks disappeared. I hope that the successor to the current model (it will be declassified during the year) will not only retain all-terrain talents, but also get a more comfortable and thoughtful interior.
