There’s comes a time when you write about something, and look at something, that’s coming out and realize you’ve dissected all you can really get off other people’s assessment and photos. That’s when frustration sets in and you just tap your foot while waiting for the clock to click down. Anticipation has been replaced by wanting to have it already. Think of it like a kid anxiously waiting for that new train set they know is downstairs but they have to wait for Santa to put it under the tree so they can feign surprise in the morning. Yeah, just like that. Anyway, this tangent is supposed to set up just wanting the 2014 Jeep Cherokee to get here already.
What’s left to even hype up at this point? The look, and the changes that come with it, have been examined to an absurd level. Well, the next news trickling out of the Jeep PR machine is the mileage information.
The 2.4-liter standard engine that is available with the Jeep Cherokee is said to get 22 miles per gallon in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. The four-wheel drive version lessens the mpg to 21 in the city and 28 on the highway. In comparison, the higher performance engine, the 3.2-liter Pentastar V6, gets a city mpg of 19 and highway mpg of 28. The four-drive version gets 19 city mpg and 28 highway mpg.
In terms of stacking up to the competition, the Jeep Cherokee holds up. The Chevy Equinox with standard engine gets 22 in the city and 32 highway mpg.
