The Chemical Smell may be related to a connection issue. I noted someone mentioend that the clamp near the exhaust was loose etc. Since I am finding liquid drops under the car-I am assuming it is a clamp or overflow.

With everyones' help here at Jeep Garage I have begun my journey to become an educated Jeep owner a fan of my 2014 Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Garage.

Thank you again!
The liquid drops under your Jeep are from the weep holes in the catalytic converter, muffler, and tale pipe. Remember your Cherokee can go through up to 20 inches of water and there has to be a way to drain this water out of the exhaust system as well as a way to drain the condensation out. Smiles, again you do not have a problem. The Chemical smell is the protective coating on the metal parts put on at the factory burning off as you use your Cherokee.

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude-New Car Woes

Updates since my original post:
1) Chemical Smell was transmission fluid dripping on exhaust. Dealer found a leaking gasket-Chrysler told them to replace entire transmission. Have been driving a rental all week.

2) Cold Weather Package-worked intermittently-there was a bad sensor that had to be replaced.

I did contact Chrysler and have been assigned a case number. Seems that they are tracking these transmission problems.

Hope to have my Latitude back on Friday.

That's a lot different than the definitive diagnosis given in the post above.
