2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited: Re-Installing the Cargo Cover

April 14, 2015

2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited

So I have an expensive purse. Most days it is worth more than the sum total of its contents, cash and credit cards included.

On the rare occasions that I need to leave it in the car, I'm careful to lock it in the trunk or hide it under the cargo cover in a minivan or SUV.

That's how I realized the cover in our 2014 Jeep Cherokee was snapped in backwards.

2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited: A Standard-Size Stroller Just Fits

April 6, 2015

It's well documented that the current Jeep Cherokee is short on cargo capacity compared with other compact crossover SUVs. Although we've managed to fit plenty of stuff in our long-term 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited, the cargo bay behind the backseat is small. Too small, in my opinion.

Here is the largest and cushiest of the three strollers I own. Yes, three. We also own three car seats. And three automobiles. We're Americans and we like having options.

2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited: Nevada Road Trip, Part 1

February 12, 2015

Not too long ago, I decided to stop making excuses for not getting out and seeing the world. Opportunities to pack up and head out were surprisingly forthcoming. The most significant so far came courtesy of my buddies in the Edmunds photo and video crew.

2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited: Road Trip Cargo Space

January 15, 2015

2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited

When you buy a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited instead of a Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Subaru Forester or indeed most other "compact" SUVs, you should do so with the knowledge that it does not possess the same amount of cargo space. A major culprit for this deficiency is its higher load floor created by the large spare tire and the need for a taller departure angle. This is what you call a trade-off for the Cherokee's requisite Jeepness, but how useful is the existing space?

2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited: Bearly Fit

December 11, 2014

What happens when your 14-year-old daughter asks for a "giant teddy bear" for Christmas?

If you're me, the bear's $120 price tag makes you flinch, laugh and ultimately scoff at the sheer ridiculousness of the purchase.

'Tis the season, and our beach town neighborhood was hosting its annual tree lighting ceremony. My friend who owns a local coffee shop was scheduled to provide 12 gallons of hot chocolate to support the festivities, and I volunteered to help with delivery.

2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited: Underfloor Storage

December 8, 2014

This is something I'd like to see in more crossovers, including my wife's GMC Acadia.

The underfloor storage in our long-term 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited keeps small items, like athletic shoes and my 1981 issue of Street Freaks, from ping-ponging around the vehicle's vast expanse of cargo space.

Smartly, its four bins vary in size and shape, and they're just deep enough to be truly useful.

2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited: Six-Foot Ladder Fit

December 4, 2014

That's a six-foot ladder in our long-term 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited. It fit, and yes I could close the hatch.

I had my doubts as I walked the metal monstrosity over to the crossover, but it quickly became clear that it was going to work.

2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited: Fold-Flat Front Seat Wins

October 1, 2014

One of my favorite features about my old XJ Cherokee is that it can fit my 9'2" Becker longboard inside the cabin. Nose in the right corner of the dash, tail angled toward the spare tire, the log is supported by the front passenger seat headrest (seat generously reclined) and the top of the rear bench seatback.

2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited: Plenty of Cargo Room for a Compact SUV

July 28, 2014

2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited

Our 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited may be considered a compact SUV, but it still has enough room inside to take care of regular-size chores. When I picked up some wood trim recently I didn't even bother to look to see if it would fit before I left. Most of the pieces were fairly manageable five-footers, but I did have one piece of 1x2 that was eight feet long.
