2014 Jeep Cherokee: It’s What’s Inside That Counts!

2014 Jeep Cherokee TrailhawkThe new look for the 2014 Jeep Cherokee has been a hot topic of late.  In order to deal with the critics who have seemed timid about the new direction, Jeep has been putting an emphasis on what’s beneath the new look.  A real Jeep isn’t defined by its exterior, but by what it can do.  A jeep is made for someone looking for an aggressive drive, someone who wants to make his own road.

The 2014 Jeep Cherokee may be sporting a new and distinct look that separates it from its prior pedigree, but it has heart where it matters.  Jeep wants to assure fans that just because the style has evolved that the capability hasn’t been left behind.  In fact, the 2014 Cherokee will be the first ever mid-sized SUV to feature rear-axle disconnect.  This helps to reduce energy loss, leading to a better fuel efficiency, by not using 4×4 when it’s unnecessary.

The new Cherokee is coming out to replace the aging Liberty and that means it’d better make sure to bring an improvement over its predecessor.  The 2014 Cherokee has much more power in the engine with a new nine-speed transmission.  There are two variations of engines available to choose from. First is the 2.4-liter Tigershark with 184 horsepower and gets 31 mpg on the highway.  Second choice is the 2.3-liter Pentastar V-6 engine.  It’s built with the intention to reduce noise, vibration, and harshness in mind and is capable of 271 horsepower.

2014 Jeep Cherokee LimitedWith all the fuss that’s been said about the outside, no one has really mentioned the inside.  The 2014 Cherokee will come loaded with over 70 available safety and security features such as the inclusion of 10 standard airbags.  The dashboard has two ways of viewing the vehicle’s information.  One is a 3.5 inch greyscale thin-film transistor LED.  The other is the 7-inch full color reconfiguarble instrument cluster.  Chrysler’s popular Uconnect system will be included and will have either the standard 5-inch touchscreen or the up-gradable 7-inch screen.

When the 2014 Cherokee is released in the third quarter of this year, it will be available in four models:

  • Jeep Cherokee Sport
  • Jeep Cherokee Latitude
  • Jeep Cherokee Limited
  • Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk

Jeep Shows Off 2014 Cherokee’s Off-Road Capabilities in New Video

UntitledThe 2014 Jeep Cherokee has been held under a fine microscope even with barely any information released.  All it took was a few sneak peeks and official pictures to get the entire auto world talking.  Some loved the new look and others scoffed.  In response, Jeep is making sure that people remember that the real beauty of their vehicles is not just the exterior, but it’s what’s underneath.

A new video put out by Jeep follows the new Cherokee as it tackles a rocky playground.  The shot is POV and clearly shows that the Cherokee, while boasting a more car-like look, is not unable to take on rough terrain.  The vehicle goes up a couple of steep inclines covered in both solid rock and loose sand.

At the beginning of the video, Jeep teases that the 2014 Cherokee will be offering the best-in-class capability.  There’s no doubt after seeing it briefly in action that all-wheel drive will be a part of the package.

The 2014 Jeep Cherokee will get its full reveal at the 2013 New York Auto Show happening very soon.  Many Jeep enthusiasts are looking forward to seeing just what this giant leap has in store.
