2014 Cherokee Front Seats Comfort?

Considering purchase of my first Jeep vehicle ever. I took a 6 mile test drive in a 2014 Cherokee 6-cyl Latitude a few days ago. I liked it a lot, but would most likely want a 6-cyl Limited. Front seat comfort is very high on my must have list. My expectation is that I can drive for at least 2-3 hours straight without my backside beginning to feel uncomfortable. So looking for feedback on road trip seating comfort. I realize seat comfort is can be relative to ones body size/shape and I'm 6'1" 200 lbs. Also concerned about how comfortable the front passenger seat can we when the seat is capable of folding flat and the seat bottom flips open to the storage bin under the seat cushion... That seat cushion looks pretty thin and having a solid bottom I have to wonder how comfortable it can be on a road trip. Thanks for your input.

Re: 2014 Cherokee Front Seats Comfort?

Longest ride has been 2-1/2 hours - seats comfortable without any discomfort for passenger(small female) and myself(bad back) Arrival- we felt same as when leaving.
A harsher suspension, combo Firestones ,higher c.g. and 2 tons of weight don't leave much to the imagination on a long ride in my Cherokee. Totally acceptable ride and comfort for a 4x4.

SwampLife said it the best. I traded in a 2013 Grand Cherokee for my 2014 Trailhawk and the seats were #2 on my list of likes for the vehicle past a better fuel economy. The difference is night and day in the seats... and they are much more comfortable than the BMW, Audi, Mitsubishi, and other Jeep seats in vehicles I have owned over the years.

Re: 2014 Cherokee Front Seats Comfort?

The seat frames should be the same as in my Dart.

I was able to survive for each 400+ mile tank feeling like I had just sat down. No fatigue, no numb legs... back doesn't hurt...

I couldn't even say the same about my old WK.

Very comfortable.

Its summer in Australia, it was 30 degrees today and I discovered the vented seats, life is complete, air conditioned seats, no sweaty leather seats!

Not to highjack the thread but - please tell us a little about the reaction/reception in the media and on the road to the new Cherokee in Oz.

Re: 2014 Cherokee Front Seats Comfort?

Not really a lot to report,still fairly new here
However I'm seeing more and more on the road here each day which means there doing something right
My understanding is that Mercedes built the WK2.
I think the WK model will sell well here and I would of never considered buying a Jeep until I had top find a car to tow a caravan with!

Re: 2014 Cherokee Front Seats Comfort?

Drove 6 hours straight in mine and never once did i feel pain in my back or butt. Although, it did feel nice to stand up after 3 hour intervals.

Actually the back seats are comfortable too.
More so than some driver's seats I have had.
