Since its New York Auto Show debut a few months ago, the 2014 Jeep Cherokee has stirred up quite a conversation about its looks. Whether you like them or not, you’ve had time to realize they would be heading to a street sometime near you eventually. Now they’re getting nearer, as the 2014 Jeep Cherokee has gotten priced.
A base 2014 Jeep Cherokee Sport will set you back $23,990, including $995 for destination and handling, representing what the brand remarks is a price $400 less than the base 2012 Jeep Liberty. That price includes a long list of standard features such as a 2.4-liter version of Jeep/Fiat’s MultiAir engine with 184 horsepower, power mirrors, Uconnect 5.0-inch touchscreen media center with Bluetooth for hands-free phone, a new 3.5-inch full-color, thin-film transistor (TFT) LED center cluster, cloth seats with driver and passenger manual height adjuster, power windows with driver one-touch down, sliding sun visors with illuminated mirrors, cargo management system, 10 air bags including multistage driver and front passenger air bags, driver and front-passenger knee bags, front- and second-row seat-mounted side air bags, supplemental all-row side curtain air bags; LED tail lamps, bright exhaust tip, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, electric park brake, cruise control, air conditioning with rear outlets, remote keyless entry, and power remote open fuel door.
The Cherokee comes standard with front-wheel drive, but optional equipment includes all-wheel drive, satellite radio, a rear camera, 17-inch wheels, and other equipment. The 2014 Jeep Cherokee Sport with all-wheel drive is $2,000 more than the two-wheel version; a low-range transfer case for off-roading is available in higher-level models, most specifically the Trailhawk.
The 2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude makes a new 3.2-liter V-6 available, producing 271 horsepower. Both engines transfer power to the ground via a new nine-speed automatic transmission. Next up the ladder is the Jeep Cherokee Limited, a model with even more features such as leather seats, keyless entry, automatic headlights, and an 8.4-inch screen with Uconnect and navigation. At the top is the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk, an off-road-ready transformation, coming with an upgraded suspension, the aforementioned low-range transfer case, 17-inch wheels, and a color and graphics package not suited for introverts.
