The 2014 Jeep Cherokee Redesign: EcoDiesel and an Evolved Look

A Girls Guide To Cars | The 2014 Jeep Cherokee Redesign: Ecodiesel And An Evolved Look - Jeep2

Jeep2Here’s the answer: Jeep‘s new EcoDiesel Grand Cherokee. And the question? I (or my DH, who won’t hear of even considering anything with less than  a macho pedigree) want an SUV, I keep hearing about how great all these new diesel engines are –clean, no fumes, improved gas mileage– and I (or we) love to be the first on our street to sport cool, cutting edge technology. 

Jeep has just unvelied a very buff new design for the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, and the top of the line models boast the EcoDiesel option, which improves gas mileage, coming in at about 22 city/30 hightway, and at a price (about $4500 extra for the diesel engine). The redesigned Jeep features a toothy grill and more sharply focused headlights that give the Jeep a studied look of determination. Car and Driver takes a deeper look at the Jeep EcoDiesel here.

This redesign, too, evolves the front face of the Jeep, giving it a toothier look and headlights that seem to train a sharp focus on the road. Automobile Magazine takes a look at the new model here

As we have noted in the past, we have had some good times in a Jeep. This big, muscular protector of a car keeps you from the indignities of the road and the weather, and sheilds your little ones from those awful things, too.

Its utility seems designed for all the rigor you face in your life, from traversing snow and ice in winter to mud season to traffic jams. Its load floor is equally adept as a place to change a diaper without breaking your back as a catch all for groceries, nursery plants and a set of dining chairs spotted at the flea market.

And the car’s designers consistenly build some of the best seats in the business, upright and comfortable, great for short rides or long hauls. And, Jeep’s designers tend to focus on what matters most to their customers, not just adding all the possible amenities that are available everywere, carefully selecting just the right ones for the Jeep custome. And this is a rugged SUV that can truly go off road–but it’s so pretty, why would you want to dirty up the darling?
