The 2014 Jeep Cherokee

As the major automotive sponsor for the Crankworx Mountain Biking Festival in Whistler, British Colubmia, Jeep is very excited to show off many of its new vehicles for the 2014 model year, including the 2014 Jeep Cherokee. Here at Crestview Chrysler in Regina, we are also pleased to see that Jeep will be showcasing the redesigned new Cherokee along with the 2014 Grand Cherokee, the 2014 Compass, and the 2014 Patriot.

What is the Crankworx Mountain Biking Festival?

Now in its 10th year, Crankworx is a competition event that spans 10 days. Between August 9th and August 18th, the town of Whistler Village and Whistler Mountain Bike Park are transformed into a bustling utopia for extreme sport enthusiasts. Crankworx draws some of the world’s best downhill, slopestyle, and endurance mountain bike riders who are all competing in front of crowds that can reach a maximum of 150,000 people. Between the competitions, photo and video contests, exhibitions, free concerts, and various parties, what better place is there to show off the off-road capability and performance of Jeep’s iconic vehicles?

Introducing the 2014 Jeep Cherokee

As Jeep’s new entry into the mid-size sport utility vehicle segment, the 2014 Jeep Cherokee is looking to shake things up with benchmark off-road drivability, world-renowned on-road capability, an estimated fuel efficiency rating of 6.3 L/100 km on the highway, and a host of new technology and safety features. The available 3.2L Pentastar V6 engine provides 271 hp and 239 lb-ft. of maximum torque with a maximum tow capacity of 2,041 kg when properly equipped. That’s a whole lot of power coming from behind the Cherokee’s brand-new stylish exterior design.

Depending on the road condition, you can select from five different settings that include snow, sport, sand, mud, and rock. The new Cherokee’s powertrain will adjust itself accordingly in order to provide the best combination of power and traction. Jeep enthusiasts and Crankworx attendees alike will be able to test drive the new Cherokee, among other Jeep models, at the festival from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for all 10 days.
