2014 Jeep Cherokee 4×4 Rated at 24 MPG Combined


Jeep has announced official fuel economy figures for its 2014 Cherokee equipped with Jeep Active Drive I and in 4×4 configuration.

According to the American automaker, EPA is still in the process of testing the front-wheel-drive models, which Jeep expects to have better fuel efficiency.

But as for what Jeep can announce, the 2014 Cherokee with Jeep Active Drive I and the 2.4-liter Tigershark engine is rated at 21 mpg in the city, 28 mpg on the highway for a 24 mpg combined rating. As for the Cherokee equipped with the 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 engine, it will be rated at 19 mpg in the city, 27 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg combined.

Again, EPA ratings for the 4×2 front-wheel-drive Cherokee has not yet been announced, but is expected shortly.

this isn't too bad for an AWD model, I bet the FWD model will hit the 30 MPG mark, the last thing the Cherokee needs is poor fuel economy

The V6 highway mileage is impressive. I don't see the FWD models being too different. It should be the additional weight that could effect it. Since the Cherokee disconnects the rear shafts when not in use there is rarely any AWD drivetrain loss.

19MPG & 27MPG aren't bad at all

Let's just hope those numbers are real and can be achieved in real life.

I recently ordered the 2015 cherokee limited 4x4 with a 2.4. What do you guys think of that? Will i be ok with the 2.4 in a 4x4 vehicle? How much does it cost to upgrade to the 3.2?

Did you do the La,La test drive or did you really put it through its paces? Only you will really know if it is good enough. To me it is not good enough, a 4000 pound vehicle needs the bigger engine imo. When I test drove both of them, I knew instantly the 4 would not cut it for me. Ultimately you need to decide based on how you are using it.

I have a 4x4 2.4. I don't feel underpowered at all.

I have a Trailhawk V-6 and it definitely is not underpowered, indeed I rarely use full throttle, or need to. I don't mind the lower mpg of the V-6 as the heavier TH probably needs it in the mountains. But, if the mpg was a major consideration, the lighter Limited with the I-4 could be an answer.

I have a six and it gets 22.3 mixed driving including off-roading, and really don't see a significant difference between the two as far as real mpg's. Its nice to have the extra power for towing and off-roading or why would you buy a Jeep? I have to say its really nice to be able to off-road all day and not have to worry about running out of gas or overheating as in my previous Cherokees. Jeep hit a home run with this one.
