Based on Fiat’s and Chryslerovoj modulation Compact Wide Body platform with the Dodge Dart, 2014 Jeep Cherokee is a small crossover with the goal of successful sales not only in the USA but also in global markets. In size, this crossover should compete with the Ford Escape, Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V, but the special design seems to be the main rival could be the Nissan Juke.
The customer can choose between three versions of the street with front-wheel drive or optional 4×4 and Sport, Latitude and Limited or Tailhawk with standard 4×4 and special equipment package for off-road driving. All models of 2014 Jeep Cherokee share design cues with a special mask and split headlights and rear LED lights, which appear to have been taken directly from the larger Grand Cherokeea. The customer can choose between two engines. The offer starts with the Chrysler 2.4L Tigershark I4 engine with 184 hp and 232 Nm of torque, and the only option is the 3.2L Pentastar V6 with 271 hp and 324 Nm of torque (this is a smaller version of the famous Chryslerovog 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine). All models will have a standard nine-speed automatic transmission that will transmit power to the front wheels or the optional 4×4.
