It’s time for the critics to start weighing in on the 2014 Jeep Cherokee. Last week, we unveiled the pricing and now it’s time to check in and see what the early thoughts are towards this interesting new Jeep with a whole new look.
Auto123.com posted up a very positive look at the 2014 Jeep Cherokee. They were very impressed by the increase in fuel economy improvements, the inclusion of new state-of-the-art technologies, and were fans of the new design.
The improved fuel economy comes courtesy of the 4-cylinder engine capable of 184 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque. There’s also a new 3.2-litre V6 that comes with the new 9-speed automatic transmission.
The 2014 Jeep Cherokee will come with three four-wheel-drive systems. Jeep Active Drive I, II, and Drive Lock. Drive 1 is fully automatic one-speed PTU (power transfer unit. Drive II has two-speed PTU and low range. Active Drive Lock has two-speed PTU, low range, and locking rear differential.
The exterior has been the talk of the 2014 Cherokee since it’s first look. Jeep knew they were taking a chance with innovation when they gave the first glimpse and I think it was a wise decision. Let the hardest sell get out of the way so people can understand the bold new approach that Jeep is taking. So far, while fans have still been divided, it’s looking like critics are warming up. It’s sleek, it’s new, and it’s impressive.
