Chrysler’s 2014 Jeep Cherokee Starts Social-Media Storm With Its Design image

Jeep has started a social-media storm with the racy design of its 2014 Cherokee.

The 2014 Cherokee is the fourth since 1974 to wear this badge and it will make its public debut at the New York International Auto Show. But opinions about the model’s racy design are divided into two: those who believe that the vehicle looks sexy and is going to have a great success, and those who believe that the Cherokee is just an “American variant of Nissan Juke.”

The new Cherokee is being manufactured in Ohio, where Chrysler is investing $1.7 billion in its Toledo facility, and is based on the same mechanical underpinnings use for the Alfa Romeo Giulietta and the Dodge Dart. All three models are based on a vehicle architecture developed by Fiat, Chrysler’s parent. The all-new Cherokee is the first crossover which will feature Chrysler’s new nine-speed automatic transmission.

Customers will have the possibility to choose from the three four-wheel-drive systems and the two engine options: a 271-horsepower 3.2-liter V6 and a 184-horsepower 2.4-liter four cylinder. According to Chrysler the four-cylinder Cherokee will offer an EPA highway fuel-economy rating of 31 mpg. the all-new Cherokee will be offered in four versions: the Trail Hawk, Limited, Latitude and Sport.
