Having a large dog can be fun for chasing neighbors away you don’t like but when if comes for going on rides it can be a bit difficult to keep them safe and secure in one spot. The new 2014 Jeep Cherokee found a solution to that along with their Cargo Management System available they also added a folding pet enclosure to keep your your pet safe.
The tentlike enclosure clips into the floor of the Cherokee’s cargo area. The soft-sided pet compartment can be folded flat when not in use, and it comes with a carrying handle. Expanded to its full size, the enclosure takes up most of the cargo area of a Cherokee with the rear seats up. There’s plenty of room for a large dog, and the driver doesn’t have to worry about it jumping over the seats into the passenger compartment while the vehicle is in motion.
The pet carrier will be available this year as an accessory through the Mopar catalog, which carries a number of model-specific goodies, like first-aid kits, performance upgrades and even a tent that connects to a vehicle’s open tailgate.
The 2014 Jeep Cherokee build-your-own configuration with pricing has finally gone live giving Jeep enthusiast a chance to create their own dream ride. The prices range from lowest at $22,995 for the base Sport model to highest at $29,495 for the sleek Trailhawk that’s off road ready straight from the factory. And with those prices doesn’t include all the pricey options you can add on that range from interior to powertrain.
Although the Cherokee is scheduled to arrive in dealerships in September, that doesn’t mean they still didn’t have some bumps in the road to get there. There is a problem with the new nine-speed automatic transmission and other parts of the drivetrain needing a little fine-tuning which delayed the official launch hosted by Chrysler.

The investment, which orignally was announced back on Novemeber 2011, is for the poroduction of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee. Chrysler executives believe the Cherokee could be the brand’s top selling model replacing the Jeep Liberty.
The invesment included:
- 260,000 sq ft expansion of the plant’s body shop and state of the art, 26,000 sq ft Metrology Center
- Add a second shift or about 1,100 jobs to the facility.

The Jeep Cherokee is extremely important vheicle for Chrysler. It is the first vehicle that will have a new design with great high tech features also.
The new design of the Jeep Cherokee has everyone taking a second glance, rather the glance is a good or bad thing is up to you. No longer the classic “boxy” Jeep design that we have all come to recognize as the traditional look for the Jeep brand but a more futuristic feel with sharper features. And if you are a true Jeep lover you will know that there has not been a drastic change for two decades or so until 2002 when Liberty stepped in.
The Cherokee has a strong modern design that now features a sharp nose with slanted lights that are pulled back giving the Jeep a facelift. And as you can guess the interior matches as well with modern features with touchscreens that control all your tech needs is available on all models except the base models.
If controversy comes to mind than stop that thought from growing. Jeep wants to spread its reach further with this new upgrade to venture out into a new world and new supporters.
When one thinks of Jeep, one usually ties the brand with it’s history with the military. Ironically, recently Jeep was chosen to transport the Nobel Peace Prize winners at the World Summit. They opted for the more comfortable Grand Cherokees as the Jeep of choice, but the Jeep name still holds tight the connection to the original troop carrying Willys Jeeps of the 1940s.

If you don’t own a GPS you should buy one. Period. Don’t get me wrong, I love paper maps. I have a drawer full of old Rand McNally’s and Topo’s that I never throw out (just ask my wife), but they just can’t compete the GPS.
You can add waypoints to mark your favorite campsites, ORV / OHV trails, watering holes and even get traffic updates and detour alerts when you head back to civilization. What could be better? How about up loading a free avatar of your favorite rig to your GPS unit? Check out www.vehiclesforgarminnuvi.com. They have everything from the Willys MB to the CJ7 with a Liberty of two thrown in as well.
