Transmission: 5-and 6-speed manual, 9-speed automatic and 6-speed dry dual-clutch automatic

Consider the Sport 1.6-litre 120hp Diesel 6-Speed Manual, for example. It suits if you rarely venture off-road, require low running costs and love the environment. This front-wheel-drive version – that still looks like a off-road warrior - averages 64.2mpg and its emissions are merely 115g/km. Such figures impress.
The Trailhawk, 2.0-litre 170hp, 4WD Automatic suits if you crave off-road adventure. Its Active Drive Low system switches between front and all-wheel-drive automatically, as required. Helpful if the front wheels lose traction. The system also minimises understeer and oversteer. This version has a 20:1 crawl ratio, too.
Active Drive Low incorporates Selec-Terrain. Its purpose is to optimise the response of a wide range of systems to suit the circumstances. Modes are: Auto, Snow, Sand, Mud and Rock. Mud Mode, for example, lets the wheels slip slightly to throw mud from the tyres to improve traction. The Renegade costs £18,250 to £29,810.

The Jeep Cherokee is a larger sports-utility model. Core strengths are typical of the brand. It is fashionable, supreme off-road and impresses family and friends. It is spacious, too.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is larger still. Its primary strength is prestige. It is a vehicle that emphasises success in life. Choose the 3.0-litre, 247hp, diesel engine or the 6.4-litre, 461hp, petrol. Both are teamed to 8-speed automatic transmission and 4-wheel-drive only. The Grand Cherokee costs from £47,580 to £69,830.
