2014 Jeep Cherokee Officially Revealed, Let the Face Naming Begin…

After someone sneaked out a few pictures of the new 2014 Cherokee from Jeep’s factory and unloaded them earlier today on Jalopnik, Jeep thought that it might be a good idea to release a shinier set of professionally edited and produced images to show us its new mid-size SUV at its best.

If anything else, the new 2014 Cherokee that replaces the Liberty in North America and its namesake in other parts of the world, needs to look its best with that – how shall we put it delicately, awkward looking face, which we don’t know if it reminds us more of a modern-day Pontiac Aztec or a catfish with some serious indigestion problems…


In addition to these photos, Jeep tells us that the 2014 Cherokee will make its world premiere at the New York International Auto Show at the end of March, and that it sets “a new standard with even more best-in-class capability, exemplary on-road driving dynamics, and fuel economy improvements of more than 45 percent versus the outgoing mid-size SUV model.”

We’ve heard that the new Cherokee is built on the same CUSW platform as the Dodge Dart, which has its roots in the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, while Allpar reported that engine options are likely to include a 3.2-liter V6, and a choice of four-cylinder units.

We’ll get to know more details in the coming weeks, but until then, feast your eyes on the Cherokee gallery and share your thoughts in the comments area.
