Pretty sure the Jeep Cherokee isn't competing with Land Rover (assuming it would run long enough to compete), BMW or Mercedes... But hey, whatever.
On price, the Jeep Cherokee range is competing head-on against LR Discovery Sport (LR2 replacement), Audi Q3, BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLA - at least that's the UK pricing.

typical UK automag pretentiousness to American vehicles. I personally think its ugly, but the driving experience is not bad, certainly nothing like what they described.

In Britain, the Jeep Cherokee Limited 4x4 diesel cost 35,695 pounds, which equals $57,591.

In the U.S., the same vehicle with a gas engine costs $30,195. On the Grand Cherokee Limited, Jeep charges $4,500 for the diesel, so that would put the price of the Cherokee diesel at $34,695.

The fact that Jeep charges an extra $22,896 in Britain may explain why it is considered mediocre.

Although it's not unusual for the US price in USD to be close to the UK price in UKP - despite the exchange rate!

That is what explains the sale of US cars in Europe, then. For comparison:

Opel Insignia = E24,380 = US$30,887
Vauxhall Insignia = L24,009 = US$38,461
Buick Regal = US$28,615

Maybe the VAT explains the difference, but those numbers are not even close.

In Aus the Jeep is more on par priced with competitors

The model tested here is a Jeep Limited 4 x4 diesel Auto which would be about 60k including all on roads like rego and taxes

RR Land Rover sport would be about 135k with the diesel including all on roads and taxes but you could pay anything up to 160k

I know that mikmak recently had one and tested it; I haven't had a chance to read his write-up on it yet, but I'd be curious to get his impression as I know he treats the cars he tests as they were designed to be used. In a few pics I even saw some dirt on the tires, so lets hear it, mikmak!
