2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited: Fuel Economy Update for July
August 11, 2014
Our deep blue 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited posts its first fuel consumption figure this month, and the results look good. Unlike another new addition to our long-term fleet, the Cherokee doesn't reward leadfoots with whiplash-inducing acceleration or rifle reports from its exhausts on throttle liftoff. As such, it was much easier for our crossover to achieve fuel economy within spitting distance of EPA combined numbers.
The Cherokee traveled 1,470 miles and consumed 74.2 gallons in its first month with us. That averages to 19.8 MPG, besting the EPA city rating of 19. Look for our numbers to improve once the Cherokee goes on a few trips. There's only so much you can do to save fuel while chugging along in the midst of L.A. rush hour.
