The new 2014 Jeep Cherokee is now given a new exterior that isn’t just globally appealing but looks forward into the future. With a futuristic aspiration, its designers were moved to create a new vehicle with an efficient shape that still greatly features Jeep DNA and design heritage. This resulted to the all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee that is both efficient and capable both in terms of looks and capability.
Marking the upper body of the new Jeep Cherokee are fluid, sleek exterior lines, emphasizing the aerodynamic capability of this section. On the other hand, the lower body of the new Cherokee is both rugged and protective, thereby conveying the performance capability typical of a Jeep vehicle.
Meanwhile, the new Jeep Cherokee is provided with a dynamic stance, a commanding presence on the road as well as an assertive wheel-to-body proportion. It is also provided with aggressive approach and departure angles, which allows the Cherokee to lead its class in terms of capability. For the 2014 model year, the new 2014 Jeep Cherokee comes with a waterfall bonnet, under which is the iconic peaked, seven-slotted grille that features the Jeep’s signature horizontal snap. Interestingly, the hood is now more clearly separated from the front fenders. Employing a one-piece hood and grille assembly has allowed Jeep to ensure the Cherokee’s precise build.
Another remarkable thing about the new 2014 Jeep Cherokee is its extensive use of advanced LED technology. On the front, the daytime running lamp (DRL) features a unique shape that helps influence the proportion of the front end, as it they make it seem that the Cherokee has slim headlamps. On the rear, the mid-size SUV is fitted with full LED tail lamps, which play a key part of the rear backlight graphic. This graphic serves as a link between the upper and lower portion of the rear end.
