Jeep has revealed the 2014 Cherokee ahead of the car’s debut set for the end of next month during the New York Auto Show. Sporting what certainly is a very controversial design, the Jeep Liberty replacement comes with slender headlights, a curved front grille and a very special (but not in a good way) shaped bonnet. We also notice the addition of plastic cladding, swoopy shoulder line and chrome trim for what looks to be one of the higher-end versions of the American crossover. The new model will be manufactured at the firm’s factory located in Toledo, Ohio and will go on sale in the third quarter of this year at a yet undisclosed price tag.
Jeep did not disclose any information about the vehicle’s engine lineup but chances are it will be offered with a 4-cylinder, 2.4-liter TigerShark mill and a beefier V6 3.2-liter. For the European market Jeep will probably choose to offer 2.0- and 3.0-liter diesel engines for more fuel-conscious drivers. Jeep has mentioned the all-new 2014 Cherokee is 45 percent more fuel efficient than its predecessor and promises to deliver “exemplary on-road driving dynamics”.
More details will become available at this year’s New York Auto Show.
