  • New Jeep Cherokee Overland officially announced
  • High-end trim level tops the Cherokee range; starts from $35,690
  • Cherokee Overland includes upscale trim, high-end amenities

A new trim level will soon join the Jeep Cherokee lineup. It's called the 2016 Jeep Cherokee Overland, and it'll start from $35,690 with shipping, making it the new flagship model of the Jeep Cherokee range.

Like the Grand Cherokee Overland, the new Cherokee Overland includes a lot of high-end features and options designed to distinguish the Overland model from its more mainstream stablemates. On the outside, for instance, the Cherokee Overland loses the Cherokee's black plastic pieces in favor of classier-looking body-colored panels on every surface. The Overland also comes standard with unique 18-inch wheels and bi-xenon headlights, which were formerly a pricy option on the Cherokee Limited.

Inside, the Cherokee Overland also makes some major strides over standard Cherokee models, touting high-end Nappa leather upholstery, additional wood trim, standard heated and ventilated front seats, safety features such as rear cross-traffic alert and a blind spot monitoring system, and a standard 8.4-in touchscreen that includes Chrysler's excellent Uconnect infotainment system and a navigation system.

Set to go on sale this spring, even the high-end Cherokee Overland still offers a few options, such as the brand's 271-horsepower 3.2-liter V6 engine, a power sunroof, a wireless charging pad and a Technology Group that includes automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision alert with automatic braking, lane-keep assist and lane-departure warning.

What it means to you: The 2016 Jeep Cherokee Overland will give you luxury-car amenities without the price tag of a high-end model. Unfortunately, it also doesn't include the name recognition -- though Jeep is hoping the Overland trim carries a little weight with car shoppers.
