SYDNEY – Feb 21, 2014: Jeep Cherokee has been named a finalist in the 2014 World Car of the Year Awards in another endorsement of the new mid-size SUV.
69 international motoring journalists selected Cherokee alongside 11 other vehicles as candidates for the top prize, which will be announced at the New York International Auto Show on April 17.
