2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited: Tidy Liftgate Opening
January 9, 2015
Our 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited was closer to the 4Runner than the camera would have you believe, but not so close to impede the upward motion of the liftgate. Still, the Cherokee liftgate design has a fairly narrow opening radius that's handy when using in the confines of beach town parking on a weekend.
Easy to shimmy in between bumpers and release the latch without going through a major limbo routine. Once raised, it was easy enough to load in a 40-inch-long hardshell case, then turn it width-wise in the cargo area with a bit of room to spare.
