The All-New Jeep Cherokee Makes Its Debut At 2014 Geneva International Motor Show
GENEVA – Feb 19, 2014: All-new Jeep Cherokee is the mid-size Sport Utility Vehicle of the Jeep brand. In its fourth generation, the Cherokee has evolved into a completely new vehicle delivering to customers a fresh interpretation of the “Go anywhere, do anything” attitude of the legendary American brand.
The all-new Jeep Cherokee powered by the efficient 2.0-litre MultiJet II turbo diesel engine in combination with the new nine-speed automatic transmission is making its debut at the 84th Geneva International Motor Show this year. The new car raises the bar in its segment and features a new sleek and athletic design, enhanced on-road driving dynamics and handling, legendary Jeep 4x4 capability, premium interior craftsmanship, innovative technology, new levels of efficiency, entertainment and comfort and ‘five-star’ safety and security features that recently allowed the vehicle to earn the ‘best in class’ designation from Euro NCAP in the Small Off-road 4X4 category.
Engineered to excel on any and all terrains, the all-new Jeep Cherokee expresses the synthesis between stylistic innovation and family tradition, legendary 4x4 capability and technology: features that are fully embodied in the new Limited model.
The new generation Jeep Cherokee is now available in both two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations, offering a choice of two new, sophisticated Jeep four-wheel-drive systems in order to ensure benchmark off-road capabilities under all driving conditions. The new Jeep Cherokee is also the first mid-size SUV to feature rear-axle disconnect, resulting in reduced energy loss when 4x4 capability isn’t needed and ensuring improved fuel efficiency. The rear-axle disconnect, seamlessly switches between two- and four-wheel drive for full-time torque management without requiring input from the driver.
The new Jeep Cherokee will be introduced in UK Jeep dealerships in the second quarter of 2014, in the Longitude and Limited trim levels. The engine offer comprises the efficient 2.0-litre MultiJet II turbo diesel delivering 170 horsepower. This engine will be matched with the new nine-speed automatic gearbox, which is used for the first time in the mid-size SUV segment. A 140 horsepower version of the 2.0-litre engine will also be available in combination with a six-speed manual transmission.
