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.
