The popular 2014 Jeep® Cherokee, on sale here at Colonial Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Hudson in Hudson, Massachusetts, is already one of the brand’s best sellers. In addition to the off-road capability you expect from a Jeep, the Cherokee provides owners with one of the most inviting and sumptuous cabins available.
The 2014 Jeep Cherokee (MSRP from $22,995) is available in Sport, Latitude, Trailhawk and Limited trims. An Altitude Limited Edition is also available. The Cherokee has quickly become a media darling, with awards filling up its trophy case. Accolades include being named the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press Association’s “SUV of the Year”; "2014 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year" from the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC); and a “Drivers’ Choice Award” from MotorWeek. One of the awards not regularly associated with SUVs, is a place on Ward’s “10 Best Interiors” list for 2014.
“To once again be recognized by WardsAuto
for their ‘10 Best Auto Interiors’ demonstrates Chrysler Group’s commitment to deliver premium materials, unique features and exquisite style to each of our brand’s specific consumers,” said Ralph Gilles, senior vice president of product design for Chrysler Group LLC.
Drew Winter, the editor-in-chief of WardsAuto World magazine added, “After this year’s brutal winter, the judges developed a real soft spot for the new Jeep Cherokee Limited. Its interior is roomy, comfortable, and boldly styled with highly sculpted shapes and contrasting colors. Fold-flat rear seats add lots of utility and the Uconnect system is the best in the business.”
The interior of the Cherokee focuses on comfort, connectivity and quality, with excellent craftsmanship and materials throughout. All models come standard with air conditioning, Bluetooth wireless connectivity with streaming audio, a USB port and auxiliary inputs, an Electronic Vehicle Information Center and the Jeep Cargo Management System with four utility hooks. The standard 3.5-inch Thin Film Transistor instrument cluster can be replaced by a seven-inch multi-view color display. There are four interior color combinations including the Limited-specific “Vesuvio,” which includes “Jeep Brown” and “Indigo Blue.” Ambient lighting and a heated, leather wrapped steering wheel are also available.
Comfortable bucket seats are covered in either cloth, a combination of cloth and leather (Trailhawk), or supple leather (Limited). The front seats are available with both heating and ventilation, and rear seats split 60/40 to unlock extra cargo capacity, up to 55 cubic feet with the rear seats folded.
As technology plays an important role in the Cherokee, there are three Uconnect® infotainment systems available, including the Uconnect® 5.0 system and the award-winning Uconnect® 8.4A and 8.4AN system with voice command, navigation and SiriusXM Travel Link and Traffic. A 10-speaker Alpine premium audio system is also available, as is a wireless charging pad that eliminates the need for cords to charge your cell phone.
Two engine choices––a 2.4-liter MultiAir four-cylinder and a 3.2-liter V6––channel their power through a best-in-class nine-speed automatic transmission. Excellent off-road handling and versatility are provided by your choice of three 4x4 systems: Jeep Active Drive I, with an industry-first rear axle disconnect system; Jeep Active Drive II, which adds low-range gearing; and the Trail Rated® Jeep Active Drive Lock. All systems include the Selec-Terrain® traction management system, which provides selectable modes to tailor vehicle handling for your specific driving needs.
The 2014 Jeep Cherokee earned a 2013 “Top Safety Pick” from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and a “5-Star” Side Crash rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The 2014 Jeep Cherokee is the SUV that provides cabin comfort and quality on par with vehicles costing thousands more to go with its unsurpassed off-road abilities. Stop by to see and drive the new Cherokee for yourself today.
