Jeep just announced pricing for its all-new Cherokee utility vehicle, which will start from $23,990 including delivery.
First unveiled during the New York Auto Show in late March, the Cherokee gained attention for its drastic design departure from traditional Jeep style. The Cherokee’s starting price is actually $400 lower than the Liberty, which it will replace in the brand’s portfolio.

The smaller of the two is a 2.4-liter “Tigershark” inline four that makes 184 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque. That engine powers the base “sport” model, which is available in both two and four-wheel drive configurations. Jeep claims the smaller engine is capable of up to 31 mpg highway.

At its most expensive, the range of available trim packages costs $30,490. That price covers the “Trailhawk 4×4″ Cherokee, which has a steeper approach angle, tow hooks poking out the front fascia and a several other upgrades. Those include a different off-road tuned suspension, skid plates, an extra inch of ride height.
