Besides the Wrangler Sundancer Concept and the Renegade Zi You Xia Concept, Jeep also introduced at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show two more concepts based on the Cherokee: the Sageland and Urbane. According to the official press release, the Cherokee Sageland Concept is inspired by the historical landmarks and natural sceneries found throughout the mystical expanse of the Shangri-La Region.
As a result, it comes with an Ivory tri-coat Pearl exterior complemented by bronze grille collars and front and rear fascia appliques. Furthermore, the Daylight opening (DLO), roof rack, door mirror caps and exhaust tips are painted in Satin Bronze chrome. Inside, we find neutral grey Nappa leather seats with red and water blue accent stitches.
The stitching found on the seats is inspired by traditional Chinese knot design, while the pattern on the door appliques derived from the color and finish of Chinese ornamental door knobs. The Jeep Cherokee Urbane Design Concept wants to unite the night life of a modern megacity with glamour and elegance.
Due to this, the Urbane Design Concept comes in a sleek Maximum Steel metallic exterior with Hyper Black accents on the roof rack, door mirror caps, grille collars, front and rear fascias, wheel finishings, vehicle badging and antenna.
The interior is dominated by brush stroke patterns and Piano Black. The seats are finished in dark red Nappa leather with bright red accent stitching, while the loor mats feature a unique decorative pattern inspired by traditional Chinese windows.
New 2014 Jeep Cherokee comes with a new exterior that has been designed for the future and have a largely global appeal. The design team at Jeep set the objective of creating a model that would move Jeep forward to the next era with an efficient shape but that will continue to have the design heritage and DNA of the brand. This new mid-size SUV from Jeep is a model that not only looks capable and efficient but is actually capable and efficient, be it on the road or the trails and no matter the weather. By making use of the sleek and fluid exterior lines, the wind-splitting and efficient upper body of this new model is highlighted.
The lower region meanwhile is protective and rugged, giving it that well-known capability that is the quality of all Jeep models. Characteristics that best describe this new model are that it has a commanding road presence, wheel-to-body proportions that is aggressive, and a powerful stance. The reason why it is able to show capability that is the best-in-class is because of how aggressive the approach and departure angles have been designed.
On the front section, one of the main features is the waterfall hood that has the iconic peaked and seven-slotted grille. This, of course, has the crisp horizontal snap, a feature that is part of many classic Jeep models. In addition to being clearly defined, the hood is separated from the fenders on the front in what appears to be a modern twist on the heritage of the brand. By having a one-piece grille and hood assembly, a precise build is more than guaranteed. Under the new 2014 Jeep Cherokee, Jeep made sure that cutting-edge LED lighting technology was utilized all around.
For the forward lighting, the shape of the daytime running lamp is truly distinct and has a significant part in the proportion of the front section in order to give a slim headlamp impression. Meanwhile for the rear backlight graphic, an integral part is the modern full tail lamps which use LED as well. Because of this, it gives the model a stronger but harmonious appearance. This particular graphic ensures that the upper part of the rear is connected with that of the lower region and gives this new model a specific and highly distinct presence.
