2014 Jeep Cherokee price to start at $23,990Mon, 10 Jun 2013 00:00:00 -0700
For better or worse, we know what the 2014 Jeep Cherokee looks like. Now, we know how much it will cost as well: $23,990. That's the base price of $22,995 plus a $995 destination charge.
In base Sport trim, the Cherokee will retail for a few hundred bucks cheaper than the outgoing $24,320 Jeep Liberty it replaces. Plus, it comes with looks that are sure to spark conversations -- or at least get people whispering things behind your back.
Four trim levels will be available: Sport, Latitude and Limited come in two-wheel and four-wheel drive configurations; Trailhawks are four-wheel only.
Here's how the trim level pricing will break down, according to Chrysler. Remember to add that $995 destination charge in to get the sticker:
-- Jeep Cherokee Sport 4x2: $22,995 ($23,990 with dest.)
-- Jeep Cherokee Sport 4x4: $24,995 ($25,990 with dest.)
-- Jeep Cherokee Latitude 4x2: $24,495 ($25,490 with dest.)
-- Jeep Cherokee Latitude 4x4: $26,495 ($27,490 with dest.)
-- Jeep Cherokee Limited 4x2: $27,995 ($28,990 with dest.)
-- Jeep Cherokee Limited 4x4: $29,995 ($30,990 with dest.)
-- Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk 4x4: $29,495 ($30,490 with dest.)
The Sport gets the 2.4-liter Tigershark inline-four engine, which also comes standard on the other three trims. Combined with a nine-speed automatic transmission (mandatory on all models), the four-cylinder should be good for a maximum of 31 mpg. Latitude, Limited and Trailhawk buyers can step up to a 3.2-liter V6 good for 271 hp and 239 lb-ft of torque.
Jeep plans to launch the Cherokee before the end of June.
