According to observations of its interior, the 2014 Jeep Cherokee (Jeep Liberty replacement) will have both a parking assistance system and a two-speed 4x4 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)
