Jeep representatives have clarified specifications for the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, and we have added a new one: water fording of up to 20 inches at 5 mph.
The previously stated 8.7 inches of minimum running ground clearance applies to both Trailhawk and any 2014 Jeep Cherokee with Active Drive II (which includes a low-speed power transfer unit). Cherokees with front wheel drive or Active Drive I, which is ideally suited for slippery or dirt roads or relatively easy paths, have 7.7 inches of ground clearance — even then, over an inch more than Toyota RAV4.
Other sources told Allpar that highway mileage for the front-wheel-drive V6 version will be reasonably close to the four-cylinder’s 31 mpg (most likely around 27-29 mpg). City mileage has not yet been disclosed. Update: V6 gas mileage is 22 mpg city, 29 mpg highway.
