The 2014 Jeep Cherokee, the first domestic car (and possibly the first in the world) to use a nine-speed automatic transmission, will also be the first Chrysler Group vehicle to have an automated self-parking system. The optional ParkSense Parallel/Perpendicular Park Assist System (first Chrysler Group availability) is in the center of the gauge cluster and operated with buttons on the steering wheel and the shifter. The park assist screen has a 1941 Jeep Willys graphic on each side of the open parking space. It is part of the optional 7-inch full-color reconfigurable gauge cluster, similar to the one used in Dart and Ram, which provides information and vehicle feedback. The driver can add information such as including turn-by-turn navigation, speed, real-time fuel economy, safety warnings, Adaptive Cruise Control-Plus, audio information, and Selec-Terrain status . More on the 2014 Jeep Cherokee

Best part is the 9 Speed trans. The bright side is less dents in my Challenger. Scary that someone who can't park gets to drive a stone crusher! :D

Great! But what size of trees will it pick up on the trails when parallel parking?

Parellel and perpendicular!?!? Wow! That's freaking awesome. I bet someone at Ford just had to change his pants for not getting it done first..

But we do. And Ford already has it. So it was due time. ALTHOUGH, IMO - this is the wrong vehicle to debut it for Chrysler on. Total mismatch with image. I don't know that it matters much, or that it will hurt sales..
I would just prefer to see management pay a bit more attention to it's branding.

I disagree. They want to sell this car to a specific crowd and this is an ideal feature!

That's the same thing I said when I saw the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, it looked too luxurious for a Jeep and contradicting its "image." Now I see them everywhere.

Most systems are parallel and perpendicular. But they usually just show off the parallel, because that is the one that most people struggle with.

You are right, I didn't know Ford added it after the fact.

Thanks!

Not to worry, these will be self parked on dealers lots for quite some time...

Yes. The Cherokee has that.
Yep....I missed it somewhere. Lane Departure Warning-Plus, which is offered for the first time in a Chrysler Group vehicle, uses a camera-based vision sensor to establish the Jeep Cherokee's position on the road. If there occurs an unintentional lane drift, determined by trajectory change and the absence of turn-signal activation, the system will deliver a visual warning and a haptic warning - the subtle introduction of torque from the electric power steering (EPS) system. If the driver unintentionally drifts too far, the system provides a secondary visual warning.

Geez Chrysler is really stepping up their game. I can only imagine what the refreshed 300 will look like.

Good, could we install this on all later cars so people will use their turn signals :thumbsup:

Could you now claim the Chrysler (lancia) Ypsilon is a Mopar?

Anyway if you want to see it self park watch at about 3:55 or just watch the whole thing
