2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited: Heated Seat and Steering Wheel

December 9, 2014

2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited

I've tested enough heated seats to know that they come in three flavors: Is it Even On?, Ooooo That's Nice and Toasty, and Holy Cow, My Butt is On Fire.

The seats in our long-term 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited are of the Fire Butt variety.

On the "HI" setting they cook you. I'm all for a little heat, but the Jeep's seat warmers quickly have me basting in my own back sweat. My wife loves it. I can only take it for a few minutes before I have to back mine off to the "LO" setting, or I just shut it off completely.

The heater in the Cherokee's steering wheel is also quite potent. Once again I can't leave it on too long or it's just too much. And, unlike the seats, there's only one setting.

Disclaimer: The Cherokee and I are in Los Angeles. If I were in Chicago in December and wearing a few very thick winter coats and mittens I may feel differently.
