There comes a time when it’s time to break the mold. To shift the paradigm. To go where nobody has been before.
Say hello to the all-new 2014 Jeep® Cherokee, with revolutionary Jeep brand design and world-class craftsmanship inside and out.
Lest you be worried that the new Cherokee can’t live up to its namesake, don’t worry – Cherokee has the legendary Jeep brand benchmark capability. Thanks to three new four-wheel-drive systems, Cherokee offers best-in-class capability.
The 2014 Jeep® Cherokee raises the standard for mid-size SUVs when it comes to capability.
– Jeep Active Drive I features a one-speed power transfer unit (PTU)
– Jeep Active Drive II features a two-speed PTU and low range
– Jeep Active Drive Lock with a two-speed PTU, low range and locking rear differential
The new Jeep Selec-Terrain traction control has up to five customized modes – Auto, Snow, Sport, Sand/Mud and Rock. Add that to its best-in-class V-6 towing capability (up to 4500 lbs.), Jeep Trail Rated Capability and up to a 56:1 crawl ratio (a 90% improvement over the outgoing model), and you have a recipe for serious off-road action.
The 2014 Jeep® Cherokee is replete with firsts. Cherokee is the first SUV with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Cherokee features the industry’s first rear-axle disconnect, which improves efficiency and results in reduced energy loss when 4×4 capability isn’t needed.
The 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir I-4 delivers a nearly-500-mile range and 45% fuel economy improvement over the outgoing model. And finally, the Cherokee is the first Chrysler Group model to utilize the new 3.2-liter Pentastar V-6 engine.
Design and Craftsmanship
The 2014 Jeep® Cherokee is a revolutionary design for the Jeep brand, but one that gives a nod to its rich heritage. Its aerodynamic design combined with its aggressive approach and departure angles contribute to its leading capability. Advanced LED lighting technology and distinctive daytime running lights help give Cherokee its unique look.
Cherokee’s premium interior features soft-touch materials and a class-exclusive all-new CommandView panoramic sunroof and Sky Slider roof. Whatever the destination, Cherokee can get you there in comfort, style and an interior that lets the sky be your roof.
