Jeep Cherokee Coming Back After 13 years Off
The Jeep Cherokee was discontinued after 2001 to make room for the Jeep Liberty, as well as allow Jeep to focus on production of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which was one of the most popular vehicles at the time.
After production ended, however, the Cherokee remained a favorite among off-road and SUV enthusiasts. Jeep discovered a pent-up demand for the nameplate, prompting the automaker to bring the vehicle back for the 2014 model year.
The all-new 2014 Cherokee is already a hotly anticipated vehicle. Due to forecasted demand, Chrysler has added 1,100 jobs to increase production, and when the automaker discovered the chance to improve the vehicle, it put a press event on hold in order to make the change.
