I don't have the dimensions but in person (NY car show) it appears to be at the smaller end end of mid size. I would estimate in the class of Ford Escape, Kia Sportage, Rav4, etc. I didn't see the rear door opened, I would have liked to see the cargo space.

Re: 2014 JEEP Cherokee KL- Reveal...pics...specs etc!!!!!!

Smart money would be that it's between the Edge and Escape in size. GC is a bit bigger than Edge, this will likely be a bit bigger than Escape. I'd bet it comes in real close in size to the GMC Terrain (which will definitely be one of its closest competitors - Equinox as well).

The last vehicle I owned in this segment was 3700 pounds with AWD and a V6. Its interior was a bit chintzy, and it was built off a special construction method that allowed it to be lighter than normal. 4000 pounds would make the Jeep with its standard construction be on the chintzy side, so I'd expect this to be a bit heavier than that. 4200 pounds loaded out seems reasonable.

The dimensions are on the Jeep portion of the Chrysler media site:

front head 39.4
front shoulder 57.6
front leg 41.4
rear leg 40.3
cargo opening width at bottom, without subwoofer 41.4
wheelbase 106.26 (4x4, not Trailhawk)
length 182
width 73.2 (not Trailhawk)
height 66.2 (not Trailhawk)
track front/rear 62 / 61.9
turning circle 37.7
weight, V6 4x4 Limited 4,044
V6 HP 271 , Torque 231
V6 HP/pound (my calculation) 14.1, beats my Explorer V8's 15.5

Here is the link (look to the right, under "Press Kit Contents":
http://www.media.chrysler.com/newsre...id=14039&mid=4

By the way, I was an American Motors fan, and drove a 1970 AMC AMX in high school and the beginning years of college, and the original Cherokee was an AMC invention, The silly articles which give Ford Credit for the modern mid-sized SUV are irresponsible journalism.

It might not be so bad if they didn't have the narrow lights on top. If it was all together it wouldn't be such a culture shock.

Just some more info after talking to some Jeep ppl at the Auto show. This info is probably known already...Should be on the showroom floor within three months and pricing should be released in 4-6 weeks and most likely starting in the mid 20's

Re: 2014 JEEP Cherokee KL- Reveal...pics...specs etc!!!!!!

Just posted pics in an album. Sorry couldn't get them to upload to this thread. Caught two Cherokees heading down I94 towards Detroit. No front pics although I tried but too hard while trying to maintain highway speed and not crashing.

Did get a glimpse of it though and not a fan.

Re: 2014 JEEP Cherokee KL- Reveal...pics...specs etc!!!!!!

Thanks for trying to get some shots,
Curious to see on in person to get a reference of its size.
I have the impression is close to the Escape.
Looks like a Trailhawk following a Limited or maybe Latitude.

As for the front, I like it. I am glad it is not knock off "baby grand"... the compass has that look and it would get boring on three vehicles. there will be no doubt what you are looking at. most other SUVs (except Escape) you really got to get close to ... to tell if it is a RAV4, Sportage, Tucson, Sante Fe, CRV etc...

To me a "Jeep" is a wrangler/CJ style... and hopefully that will never be altered too much. the other SUVs they make can be whatever they think will sell.

Re: 2014 JEEP Cherokee KL- Reveal...pics...specs etc!!!!!!

^ Completely agree. I'm ok with the front. I'm ok with the back. I'm ok with the entire package. In fact, while at first I thought it was horrid, I can say that the wife and I have a high probability of purchasing a Cherokee Trailhawk when they're finally released into the wild.

I, for one, cannot wait.

Has there been a pic of the black/iceland interior posted anywhere? I did a search, but came up with nothing.

Re: 2014 JEEP Cherokee KL- Reveal...pics...specs etc!!!!!!

FYI, many of the specs, including the dimensions, are now in the comparator tool everyone uses. Go to the Jeep comparator tool, put in the 2014 Cherokee, and compare it against, say, the Escape, Terrain and maybe the Grand Cherokee. No way to add the V6 to this particular tool, maybe someone can find one where it is possible. You can even compare standard vs. the Trailhawk and find/see the slight differences in dimensions.

Cargo volume seems small, but there is more front AND real legroom than on the Grand Cherokee. I'd have liked to see a larger fuel tank, but there you go.
