2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4

Over the course of its lifetime, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has won more awards than any other SUV on or off the road. Recently chosen as the “SUV of Texas” by the Texas Auto Writers Association, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has plenty to offer consumers. From the base model Laredo to the upscale Summit, drivers can expect quality, efficiency, and power.

For this model year, all Jeep Grand Cherokee models received style and tech enhancements like a more modern front grille and fascia treatments as well as projector fog lamps, capless fuel fillers, and daytime running headlamps. Let’s take a closer look at all that this vehicle has to offer.

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

This model comes equipped with a 3.6L V6 24-valve VVT engine paired to an 8-speed automatic 845RE transmission. According to EPA estimates, the Grand Cherokee gets 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. In addition to its powerful engine, the Grand Cherokee Laredo comes with a variety of convenience features including AC

auto temperature control with dual zone control, air filtering, an electronic vehicle information center, full-length floor console, and leather-wrapped steering wheel just to name a few. At a base price of $28,795, this vehicle offers incredible value without sacrificing anything.

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit

On the other end of the spectrum is the Grand Cherokee Summit. This rugged, yet refined, model is designed with premium touches like Natura Plus leather-trimmed heated seats and open-pore wood accents. Drivers and passenger seat occupants can enjoy the comfort of power 4-way lumbar adjust seats. 20-inch satin polished aluminum wheels add even more style and sophistication. For the ultimate in entertainment, this model features 19 premium speakers including a subwoofer plus a Harman Kardon Logic7 GreenEdge amplifier.


When properly equipped, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is Trail Rated for off-road use. Drivers have the option of selecting from two ready-made groups of components: the Off-Road Adventure I Group or the Off-Road Adventure II Group. Each system allows your Jeep to tackle even the toughest terrains. To be Trail-Rated, a vehicle must meet strict standards in five different categories of off-road conditions such as ground clearance, water fording, articulation, traction, and maneuverability.
