Reviewers don't mind the interior and exterior styling of the 2009 Jeep Cherokee—but it's not very exciting overall.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee received its last full remodel in 2005. Since then, it has aged relatively well, and it still looks fit and trim, though its angular shape isn't to everyone's taste. The traditional Jeep seven-bar grille tells onlookers that this SUV is equipped for the trail. The Auto Channel says there's "no mistaking the look of a Jeep with its signature seven-slot grille and dual headlamps." Jalopnik awards kudos to the Grand Cherokee Jeep's "athletic and contemporary appearance." Kelley Blue Book reports that "flared wheel arches and aggressively styled wheels" lend the Grand Cherokee Jeep the "rugged, off-road look Jeep loyalists demand."
According to Cars.com, the interior of the Grand Cherokee saw some changes last year that "are modest and center on the dashboard, door panels and center console." They report that the 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland version "gets a wood steering-wheel rim and perforated leather seats with special piping." Jalopnik reviewers note the 2009 Jeep has an "updated line of instrument clusters that feature new brighter LED illumination."
