2014 Jeep Cherokee unveiled
Jeep has revealed the new Cherokee ahead of the 2013 New York Auto Show. Built on the Fiat Group’s modular platform, the new 2014 Jeep Cherokee has a radical aerodynamic front end that is unlike any other SUV at the moment.
To be launched with four variants on offer namely Sport, Latitude, Limited and Trailhawk, the 2014 Cherokee will be available with three different types of 4x4 systems and two engine options as of now.
With the 2014 Cherokee, it looks like Jeep is aiming to spread the model range across a wide price band. The entry-level model will come with fewer equipment and luxuries such as cloth upholstery, manually adjustable seats, a 3.5-inch greyscale screen instrument cluster that displays vehicle information to the driver and a separate 5-inch LCD screen that displays the infotainment system’s status on the centre console, etc. Standard safety features include 10 airbags, ABS and stability control.
Top-of-the-line models will feature leather upholstery, a park assist system, electrically adjustable seats, heated and cooled seats, a 7-inch colour instrument cluster and an 8.4-inch LCD screen for the infotainment system to name a few.
Chrysler’s Adaptive Cruise Control Plus system that has made its debut in the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, which can bring the vehicle to a complete halt using radar and video input and without driver input is also a feature worth mentioning.
