A full-fledged image set of the India bound 2014 Jeep Cherokee has surfaced on the cyber space. Hence, we can now have a better look at the latest from the Fiat Group’s iconic SUV maker.
It is being said that the new Jeep Cherokee’s styling is loosely based on that of the Fiat’s Alfa Romeo brand of cars. Here is what a WSI report says:
“The 2014 Jeep Cherokee, which makes its debut Wednesday at the New York Auto Show, is based on a design first developed for Fiat’s Alfa Romeo—a sharing intended to spare Chrysler hundreds of millions of dollars in engineering costs and shorten the time it takes to get new vehicles to market,”
Other than the styling, the new Jeep has another relation with the Alfa Romeo brand of cars. The new Cherokee is based on a modified version of the Dodge Dart’s platform. The Dart’s platform, in turn, has been sourced from the Alfa Romeo Giulietta.
The latest image gallery also has pics of the interiors of the 2014 Cherokee. This is the first time that the interiors of the new vehicle have been seen.
The power options for the new Jeep Cherokee include a 2.4-liter four-cylinder Tigershark unit with a max power of 184 bhp and a 3.2-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with a max power of 271 bhp. Both the engines are mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
The new 2014 Jeep Cherokee will be sold in four variants- Sport, Latitude, Limited and the Trailhawk.
