Urbane and Sageland Concepts showcase diverse nature of popular SUV.
The final pair of concepts Jeep created for the Beijing Motor Show has been unveiled, both based on the Cherokee. Dressed in contrasting color schemes, the first concept is dubbed the Sageland that draws inspiration from Shangri-La. An Ivory Pearl tri-coat body color contrasts with bronze trim on the grille, roof rack, sunroof, fascia appliques, mirror caps and exhaust tips. Light gray Nappa leather seats with red/blue top-stitching are complemented by earthy tones in the cabin.
If the Sageland is Cherokee's Yin, the Urbane concept is its Yang with a black-accented blue metallic paintjob adorning the other Cherokee-based concept. Chinese calligraphy is the theme chosen for the interior, which sports Piano Black accents and dark red Nappa leather. No word on powerplants, but Cherokees in China get the same engines offered in the US: a 2.4-liter MultiAir four and a 3.2-liter Pentastar V6, both of which come mated to a nine-speed auto.
