Park assist, low-gear 4×4 for 2014 Cherokee

2014 Cherokee rendering

According to observations of its interior, the 2014 Jeep Cherokee (Jeep Liberty replacement) will have both a parking assistance system and a two-speed 4×4 system, put into low gear using a traditional lever.

This would be the first parking assistance system ever used in a Chrysler Group vehicle.

The 2014 Cherokee will be equipped with the new 3.2-liter V6, a high-efficiency version of the familiar Pentastar 3.6 engine, paired with a ZF nine-speed automatic transmission made either by ZF itself or by Chrysler. Export “Liberkees” will get a 2-liter, four-cylinder diesel shared with the Giulia (corrected from an earlier statement)

For more information, discussion of the four wheel drive system, and up to date renderings, see our 2014 Jeep Cherokee page or this forums discussion.
