Jeep celebrates Grand Cherokee’s 20th year of excellence, a brand which was found in 1993 and went on to unleash a new genre of vehicles.
Grand Cherokee gained instant stardom amongst the masses as a posh, urban vehicle with solid credentials and never before seen styles which also were a perfect combination for the SUV-crazed market at the time. It quickly became a go-to SUV along with Ford Explorer, its main competitor.
Despite the Explorer turning more CUV than SUV, the Grand Cherokee stayed true to its roots, and this may be the reason why the Jeep remains as popular.
The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee can be as civil or rugged as the driver desires at the touch of a button or the turn of a knob. The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is Jeep’s flagship vehicle. With the smaller Cherokee’s success, Jeep decided to create a vehicle to compete with the Explorer.
While many manufacturers are on the drop of hat trying to soften the look of their “trucks” or SUVs/CUVs, Jeep essentially didn’t and maintained its stance on a very unapologetic SUV style that begins with the legendary seven-slat grille.
For the 2014 variant, headlights were slimmed down, but unfortunately are located in the same openings as the previous 2011-‘13 headlights.
Also new for 2014 are the front and rear LED lighting. On board, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee the Ergonomics are quite good; fabulous on a long road trip when adjusting temperatures.
Nice touches include: a chunky heated tilt/telescoping steering wheel; heated and cooled snuggly front seats; and a well-presented and complete instrument cluster.
Its main competition comes from the current Honda Pilot, Kia Sorento, Ford Explorer, and Toyota 4Runner.
