2014 Jeep Cherokee Southern FL


2014 Jeep Cherokee Southern FL

The Cherokee is back and it replaces the Liberty in the Jeep lineup. It is built on a new platform, derived from the modified Fiat undercarriage used for the Dodge Dart, Avenger, and Chrysler 200. Jeep states that the new Cherokee is a mid-size crossover but it is really closer in size to the compact crossovers like the Subaru Forester, Ford escape and Honda CR-V. There is no third row seat but this allows for a roomy five-seater vehicle. Depending on the model, there's a choice between cloth or plush Nappa leather upholstery. 

 

2014 Cherokee Power 

The 2014 Cherokee offers a choice between a four-cylinder or a V-6. The standard engine is a 2.4-liter in-line-four offering 184 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque, while a new 3.2-liter version of the Pentastar V-6 is available, rated at 271 hp and 239 lb-ft of torque. Throughout the lineup, the Cherokee will feature a new ZF nine-speed automatic transmission, allowing a low first gear for climbing, combined with several tall overdrive high gears for good highway mileage.

2014 Jeep Cherokee Design

There is no shortage of opinions on the front-end styling of the 2014 Cherokee. It's quite different from earlier models. The familiar Jeep slotted grille is still there but the headlights are far from the round units of years past.  The design of this Jeep is, well, modern.  From the back the Cherokee is smooth and contoured, like many other crossovers.  Inside the look is quite sporty and comfortable, unlike the truck-like interiors of previous years.

Conclusions

The 2014 Cherokee offers many advanced safety features such as a Forward Collision Warning-Plus system which warns audibly and visually, and even deploys the Advanced Brake Assist to quicken braking times. Lane Departure Warning-Plus, Blind-spot monitoring, and Rear Cross Path detection are available, as is a rear backup camera. Electronic stability control is standard, along with ten airbags.  For more on this model, visit the Official Jeep Cherokee Website .
