Jeep has not only a long history of ongoing presence in the U.S. – but also a long history of winning coveted automotive awards. And now Jeep has added to the list. The brand new 2014 Jeep Cherokee and the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee have received three more accolades from the Active Lifestyle Vehicle (ALV) awards. The competition, which is now in its 10th year and put on by Carspondent.com, took place in Chandler, Arizona, on Saturday, Oct. 19. More than 100 athletes and outdoor enthusiasts from around the country who participate in sports evaluated and judged new vehicles in the 10 award categories in this unique competition.
The 2014 Jeep Cherokee took Best Value On-Road (MSRP at or below $35,000). The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee won in the Luxury Off-Road (MSRP over $35,000 with true off-road capability) division. And the Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel won the top Green (alternative fuel and hybrid powertrains) vehicle.
The ALV awards are unique in that they are the only annual vehicle awards in which active, outdoor enthusiasts choose the winners, along with a small group of automotive journalists who accompany them in the ride-and-drive tests.
The iconic Cherokee name returns to the Jeep vehicle lineup for the 2014 model year. The result is a vehicle that redefines the mid-size SUV segment, offering legendary Jeep 4×4 capability, a segment-first nine-speed automatic transmission, fuel economy improvements of more than 45 percent (versus the outgoing Liberty model), superior on-road ride and handling, and so much more.
The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee redefines the premium SUV for 2014, delivering an unprecedented combination of best-in-class fuel economy and driving range, available clean-diesel technology, legendary benchmark capability, and more. For 2014, the Grand Cherokee offers a new EcoDiesel engine with best-in-class 30 mpg highway and an unmatched driving range of more than 730 miles.
