2014 Jeep Cherokee Hampton VA
The fact that a version of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee can handle extreme off-roading is a bonus, but everyday drivers will find the well-rounded new model a tough crossover to pass over. Standard will be a 16-valve 2.4-liter four-cylinder good for 184 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque promising an EPA-estimated 31 mpg Highway, which is 45-percent improvement in fuel efficiency over the outgoing Liberty. If you want Jeep off-road capabilities in your small SUV and are willing to sacrifice a little room to get them, the Cherokee is for you.

Driving the 2014 Jeep Cherokee
The 2014 Jeep Cherokee offers two different 4WD systems. Electronic power steering (EPS) will improve fuel efficiency and maneuverability with a turn radius of about 36 feet on front-wheel drive models, 38 feet on four-wheel drive models and 39 feet on Trailhawks. The Trailhawk's extra equipment adds significant weight, even compared with an all-wheel-drive non-Trailhawk trim, let alone a front-wheel-drive model. The standard Selec-Terrain traction-control system, which allows the driver to choose settings for optimum performance, includes settings for Snow, Sport, Sand/Mud and Rock.
2014 Cherokee Style & Design
Depending on the model, the 2014 Jeep Cherokee's instrument cluster will be 3.5-inch grayscale or 7-inch full-color reconfigurable to allow the driver to select from a multitude of information. Touches of metallic flash exude luxury, and in fact nothing inside really speaks to this being a Jeep in the traditional sense. The top-of-the-line seats are power-adjustable, heated/ventilated and feature memory settings. The off-road-themed Trailhawk is 4WD only and comes with slightly wider 17-inch wheels and all-terrain tires.
The 2014 Jeep Cherokee marks the return of a classic Jeep nameplate. While many models in the segment are ditching their 6-cylinder variants to concentrate on the fuel-economy of the 4-cylinders, Jeep is adamant about offering a V6 version of the Cherokee. The 2014 Cherokee comes relatively well-equipped at a starting price of $23,990. For more information on this model, visit the official 2014 Jeep Cherokee website.
