Jeep Cherokee 2014 soon available in European market

Rachit Hirani  |  Jaipur 

Jeep Cherokee is the mid-size Sport Utility Vehicle of the Jeep brand. The 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 début at the 2014 Geneva International Motor Show. This new Jeep could make its way into India too. As the Indian market prefers smaller and efficient engines, this will be the perfect fit for Indian buyers.

A key element in the front of the new Jeep Cherokee is the 'waterfall' hood with the iconic peaked, seven-slotted grille, which includes horizontal snap - a feature found in many classic Jeep vehicles. The hood is clearly defined and separated from the front fenders and the headlamps also get day-time running LEDs. The sides feature the signature Jeep trapezoidal wheel arches. The rear is highlighted by the contemporary full LED tail lamps, which are an integral part of the rear backlight. Exclusive features such as the available heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel and wireless charging pad, complete the interior of the new Jeep Cherokee and will delight drivers and passengers alike.

The new generation Jeep Cherokee for Europe will be available in both two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations, offering a choice of three new Jeep four-wheel-drive systems for better 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 Jeep dealerships throughout Europe beginning the second quarter of 2014. 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. The European lineup also includes the 3.2-litre V6 Pentastar petrol engine paired to the new nine-speed automatic transmission. In Russia and the Middle East, a Sports trim level is available in the new Cherokee range and the new automatic gearbox is offered in combination with the 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir inline-4.
