  • 2019 Jeep Cherokee, 2018 Detroit auto show

    Don’t call it a mistake but a mulligan. The 2019 Jeep Cherokee is the brand's second take. Jeep had a simple brief with the new Cherokee, with designer Mark Allen telling us that his team didn’t want to take all the weirdness out of it. The result is a blend of the Cherokee’s polarizing design with the much more attractive looks of the redesigned Jeep Compass. Replacing the three-tiered fascia of the 2018 model, the updated Cherokee reintegrates the headlights with the running lights and turn signals. The “eyes” of the Cherokee are the result, featuring a more...

  • 2014 Jeep Cherokee

    On Tuesday, Wired posted an account of writer Andy Greenberg's ongoing experiment to demonstrate the potential of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee to be remotely hacked. During this round, partners Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek were able to access the vehicle's climate control, entertainment, transmission, and engine via their laptops, all while miles away. At one point, the Jeep was rendered completely undrivable. The exercise was a scary demonstration of the potential for connected vehicles to be compromised, made more terrifying by the fact that it was conducted not on a closed course, but on a...

    Following the earlier sighting of crudely-built test mules, the first completed prototypes for the 2014 Jeep Liberty have now been spotted testing ahead of the vehicle’s debut later this year. While it’s not clear whether the new vehicle will retain the Liberty name, or possibly end up reviving the Cherokee nameplate, we do know it will be based on the front-wheel-drive Compact U.S. Wide (CUSW) platform found in a variety of vehicles including the Alfa Romeo Giulietta and Dodge Dart. In fact, earlier test mules for this 2014 Liberty/Cherokee were using makeshift Giulietta bodies...

  • Chrysler replaces leases with new incentive program

    Chrysler is taking heed of tougher fuel-economy standards and shifting demand for smaller and more environmentally friendly vehicles by redesigning its next-generation models to be lighter and greener. The carmaker’s vice chairman, Tom LaSorda, has revealed that the next-generation model, due in 2010, will feature car-like unibody construction as well as a new ‘Phoenix’ V6 engine. The Phoneix V6 makes its efficiency gains by using cylinder-deactivation technology to shut down three cylinders, allowing it to function on half of its maximum displacement when under low loads...
