Jeep Cherokee (2014)Thu, 28 Mar 2013 00:00:00 -0700
Jeep has unveiled its controversial 2014 Cherokee at the New York auto show.
The carmaker's return to the medium-sized SUV segment marks the return of the iconic nameplate, but with a radically different style to its rectilinear predecessors. is designed to compete with the Audi Q5, Land Rover Freelander and BMW X3 in the market with its aggressive wheel-to-body proportions.
Tthe trademark seven-slotted grille has been remixed and now flows down from the soft, ‘waterfall' hood. When combined with the unusual lamp setup – with extremely slim graphics up high and main lamps hidden lower down in the mask, its DRG is certainly distinctive. Its overall surfacing is very full and soft although this is alleviated by the very geometric, squared wheel arches that provide a visual link to the bigger Grand Cherokee.
Inside the IP architecture is less radical than the exterior, with an emphasis on high perceived quality through features such as the upholstered dash upper. The digial gauge pack and infotainment screen are similar to those found in the Dodge Dart.
