AUBURN HILLS, Michigan — Chrysler revealed the first official photos of the all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee today ahead of its public debut next month at the 2013 New York Auto Show.
No details were released for the all-new vehicle, but Chrysler said it would have "best-in-class" capabilities and deliver fuel economy improvements of more than 45 percent over the Liberty. The 2012 Jeep Liberty is rated at 16 mpg city and 22 mpg highway. It comes standard with a 3.7-liter V6 mated to a four-speed automatic transmission.
The 2014 Jeep Cherokee will be built in Chrysler's Toledo, Ohio assembly plant starting in the fall of 2013.
Additional details will be announced at the New York auto show in late March.
Edmunds says: Jeep has wisely given up on the Liberty and brought back the well-known Cherokee nameplate for a vehicle that's better suited to take on the latest crop of midsize SUVs and crossovers.
