Jeep Cherokee Returns for 2014
The Jeep Cherokee is coming out of retirement. The 2014 Jeep Cherokee will debut at next month’s New York Auto Show as a replacement for the outgoing Liberty. It’s expected to hit dealer showrooms in the third quarter of this year and will be built in Toledo, Ohio.
No word on price or power, but Chrysler says the Jeep Cherokee’s fuel economy improves by more than 45 percent over the current Liberty. From the photos released by Chrysler, it looks like the Cherokee abandons the boxy style of the Liberty in favor of a sleeker look.
One of the most popular nameplates, and a pioneer in the SUV segment, the Cherokee was sold here in the U.S. from 1974 to 2001, when it was replaced by the Liberty. If that’s not confusing enough, Jeep has continued to sell the Liberty under the Cherokee nameplate in other countries.
