Test mules of the new Jeep Cherokee generation have been caught on camera for the first time and rumors are saying that this might be the hybrid version.
Our spy photographers have managed to catch some test mules of the new 2014 Jeep Cherokee generation on camera, in Livigno, and considering the fact that the model in question has already been unveiled and launched in several markets across the globe, rumors are saying that the vehicles pictured below might be the hybrid version of the SUV. Jeep refused to comment on the subject and this supports the fact that the company is working on a “green” version of the new Cherokee.
The 2014 Jeep Cherokee was officially unveiled during the New York International Auto Show, in November, and it’s riding on the Compact U.S. Wide platform, made by Chrysler and Fiat. The model is currently being assembled in Toledo, Ohio, and it’s coming in a front-engine, front-wheel / all-wheel drive layout, 4,623 mm long, 1,859 mm wide on the Sport, Latitude and Limited, and 1,681 mm tall, riding on a 2,692 mm long wheelbase. Power is being provided by a 184 HP (138 kW) 2.4L Tigershark engine, or by a 271 HP (202 kW) 3.2L V6 Pentastar, mated to the new 9-speed automatic transmission. The model received a 5-star safety rating from Euro NCAP.
