2017 Jeep Cherokee: The sleek four-wheeler

While the front-end design may be polarizing, you've got to give Jeep respect for making a bold statement.

Oh, my! Just look at those headlights!

Besides the traditional seven-slot grille there isn't much Jeepiness in the front fascia.

A smaller 2.4-liter engine is standard, but my Overland trim came with a 3.2-liter V6.

This motor puts out 271 horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque, and is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.

While not Trail Rated, the Cherokee still has a two-speed transfer case and driving modes for snow, sport and sand/mud.

It's not as hard-core as say, a Wrangler, but it will still best most anything in its class when the pavement melts away.

From up here the design isn't quite so daring.

You can get a Cherokee in two-wheel drive, but really... why would you?

The Overland trim is full of leather, leather and more leather.
