What do the various trims have to offer?

The new starting trim of the Cherokee lineup is the Latitude. The Latitude's standard features include a satellite radio, passive keyless entry, a rearview camera, push-button start, and a rear seat that both folds and slides for the passengers with longer legs. Next up is the Latitude Plus trim with features like ambient interior lighting, Bluetooth, a 115-volt power outlet, an 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen with color, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The next trim level is known for its off-roading capabilities. The Trailhawk comes standard with skid plates, tow hooks, all-terrain tires, and off-road oriented suspension tuning. The Limited trim loses a lot of the off-roading capability but replaces it with luxury. This trim comes with leather upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a wiper de-icer, and heated front seats. Finally, the Overland brings back the off-roading and adds a sound deadening windshield, a navigation system, upgraded leather upholstery, and cornering lights.
