The Extreme Sport follows hot on the heels of the instantly sold-out Cherokee Red River Edition, the Chrysler and Jeep Division of DaimlerChrysler South Africa has introduced the.
Mechanically identical to the Cherokee Sport 3.7L V6, the Jeep Cherokee Extreme Sport further embodies the "go anywhere, do anything" ethos of Jeep with the addition of fog lamps, graphite bumpers front and rear, graphite side mouldings, body colour wheel arch flares and 16-inch Mesa graphite alloy wheels.
Interior changes include a new instrument cluster (as per Limited Edition Cherokee models) and an aluminium centre console.
Unique two-tone low-back front seats are covered in a combination of flat woven Taupe cloth and Dark Slate Grey leather, with the Jeep logo embroidered onto the seat backs. A leather-wrapped steering wheel with integrated speed controls rounds out the interior package.
Available in only black or silver, and with a limited number of just 150 available, demand for the Jeep Cherokee Extreme Sport is expected to outstrip supply by some margin.
A 3 year/60 000km free scheduled services plan is standard on all models.
The Jeep Cherokee Extreme Sport retails for R291 100.
