2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 9A)
I have 1400 miles on my Cherokee Latitude 4X4 4 cylinder and so far Im loving this vehicle. In comparison, my wife has a 2011 Honda CRV EX AWD, and it has also been a great car for our family. The Jeep feels more refined however. The 4 Cylinder is quite adequate if not more so. The transmission seems to be getting smoother as the vehicle breaks in. After a bit of lake effect snow in Michigan, it does awesome in bad weather-up to 15 inches of snow tested so far. Minor quirk is that the heating cooling always resets to hottest or coldest setting upon restart, and cargo area is smaller than our CRV. Otherwise I am very impressed with this vehicle. If it lasts it will be a great buy.
Refined Ride yet Sporty
Seats and Steering Wheel feel great
Great Performance with the 4 cylinder
Great Fit and Finish
Does great in Snow
Quirky Heating and Cooling Control
Smaller Cargo area than a Honda CRV
