Chrysler took a big risk with the 2014 Jeep Cherokee. The design is very futuristic in a way and a big departure from the Jeep Cherokee heritage. Chrysler calls it a cutting-edge, revolutionary design. It is a revolution alright, but that does not have to be a good thing. Taste is of course something that is different for everyone. The Canadian car journalists seem to love it. The all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee has been crowned the "Best New SUV/CUV Under $35,000" by the Automobile Journalist Association of Canada (AJAC).
The recognition of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee as Canada’s ‘Best New SUV/CUV Under $35,000’ comes from 80 automotive journalists from across the country. In October, they gathered in Niagara Falls, Ontario, for ‘TestFest,’ the highly regarded annual event where the journalists drove and voted on 174 new or significantly changed vehicles back-to-back on the same day, under the same conditions, on closed and public roads.
“This award from the members of AJAC is a fantastic, expert endorsement of the capability, technology and refinement built into our all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO, Chrysler Canada. “From the outset, our Jeep engineers wanted the Cherokee to completely redefine what Canadian consumers should expect from a mid-size SUV, whether it be through its cutting-edge design, class-exclusive tech like a segment-first nine-speed automatic transmission, legendary Jeep 4x4 capability or more than 70 advanced safety and security features.”
This latest product from the Jeep brand brings the Cherokee back to North America after a 12-year absence. Manufactured in Toledo, Ohio, the 2014 Cherokee is the first Jeep built upon the Compact U.S. Wide (CUS-wide) platform co-developed with Chrysler Group’s strategic partner Fiat S.p.A..
