Jeep also posted a 450-percent climb in the number of customers who avail of current zero per cent finance and three years’ free servicing offers – an evidence that more and more people are seeing the benefit of this financing method. Jeep’s resurgence in the UK comes as it gets ready to roll out its new Cherokee mid-size SUV in the UK on June 9, 2014.

The Cherokee will be available in two- or four-wheel drive; with 140hp or 170hp diesel engines paired with either a six-speed manual or nine-speed automatic transmission. Damien Dally, head of brand at Jeep UK, remarked that the sales figures are “fantastic news” for both the Grand Cherokee and the Jeep brand as a whole.
