2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited: official images released

Article by Christian A., on February 24, 2013

After images of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee were leaked, Chrysler Group had no choice but to make an official announcement about the Jeep Liberty’s replacement and confirm its name. Chrysler would have preferred to make the grand revelation next month at the New York auto show. Information had been leaked through auto enthusiast Web sites earlier that day.

The site Jalopnik released images of several 2014 Cherokees that were shot during pre-production at the Toledo North Assembly plant. Chrysler reacted by providing four official photos of this model and by unveiling the name.

It also announced that the model will start to arrive in dealerships during the third quarter. In a previous report by Automotive News, we learned that powering the Cherokee is a 3.2-liter V-6 engine based on Chrysler's 3.6-liter Pentastar engine. It also gets an all-new 9-speed front-wheel-drive automatic transmission that ZF Friedrichshafen designed.

Production of the Cherokee is set to start this May. So far, the responses online to the online images don’t indicate that many were impressed. Ralph Gilles, Chrysler's head of design, replied to a Jeep fan who was dismayed with its design. Gilles tweeted to fans to “have faith” as the brand is “shifting some paradigms around.”
