Very impressed with the new Jeep Cherokee (Trailhawk edition)!!!
If I were in the market for my family’s new SUV, this would be top pick.
Where can it take you?
On this trip, to seek sand sculptures…
…those delicate formations created by the desert winds.
We searched south of Abu Dhabi.
The Jeep Cherokee is very confident in the sand and over the rocks.
A superb vehicle by all counts. It purred on the highway, barely passing the 2000 rpm mark at 138kph. Comfortable, smooth, really a delight to drive. The 9-speed gearbox matches the 271 horsepower and 239 kb-ft of torque output by the fabulous 3.2L Pentastar engine: that’s a couple just made for each other!
Off-road the control was excellent, and as I already mentioned, I think the most notable thing was the confidence of the Trailhawk Cherokee – it did not hesitate once, absolutely fearless. Deep, churned-up sand: yes sir! Fast steep climb on sand dune: yes sir! Oooops, a bit too fast over that bump: no problem, sir!
The Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk has earned its badge of honor.

We took it to the desert. Easy as pie.
And our reward was these spectacular sand sculptures.
The map below shows you exactly where to find them, and you can download a KML file for your GPS device.
