Autobytel Names 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV of the Year

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited

2014 is still young, and the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is already raking in major awards, including Autobytel’s “SUV of the Year.”

At the end of 2013, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee had achieved the highest November sales number since before the recession as well as a Car of the Year award from the Automotive Journalist Association of Canada for Best New SUV. Jeep is continuing that momentum in January with their most recent win.

Autobytel’s editor-in-chief Michelle Naranjo had high praise for the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, stating in a recent press release, “For 2014, the Jeep Grand Cherokee embodies a readiness to head off into the hills as an affordable family hauler wrapped around class-leading interiors chockfull of the safety, technology and comfort features that set the Grand Cherokee at the top of the heap.”

Another vehicle from the Chrysler Group was also honored by Autobytel this year. The 2014 Ram 1500 was named the Pickup Truck of the Year, making Chrysler Group a two-time winner. Doug Betts, Senior Vice President of Quality at Chrysler Group, called the awards “a great honor,” attributing their success to the company’s diligent work building “world-class vehicles.”

Jeep Cherokee Leads Strong December Sales


December was a strong month for Chrysler’s sales. Ever since the bailout, every month has been a story of how the auto company has rebounded from oblivion and into solid sales again. This last December marks the 45th consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains for Chrysler. The month’s gains were attributed by the company to two new popular vehicles.

The 2014 Jeep Cherokee was seen as one of reasons why Chrysler sales grew 6 percent from December in 2012. Since the Cherokee went on sale in October, it has been a hit with drivers. It has since outsold the popular Jeep Wrangler in December. The sales Jeep posted with help from the Cherokee was a 34 percent gain over last year’s December. That is the best December sales ever for Jeep.
