2014 Jeep Cherokee has been named "Northwest Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year" by the Northwest Automotive Press Association (NWAPA). In addition, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee was named the winner of the Premium Standard Utility class, and the 2014 Jeep Cherokee also was the winner of the Compact Utility class.

"The 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk was named the winner based on its outstanding performance, off-road capabilities, features, fuel economy and value after rigorous testing," commented Ryan Douthit, Co-Chair of the event.

"The new Cherokee represents a near-perfect blend of the features and performance that northwest buyers expect.", he added.

The all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee sets new standards in the mid-size SUV segment. It delivers improved fuel economy, superior on-road ride and handling, revolutionary design, world-class craftsmanship, clever functionality and versatility, more than 70 safety and security features and user-friendly technology. There is also unmatched off-road capability while not sacrificing on-road ride and handling, comfort or segment-leading features.

It also has  an unprecedented combination of best-in-class fuel economy and driving range, available clean-diesel technology. The manufacturer has  recorded the best two sales months in its 73-year history in March and April. Both Cherokee and Grand Cherokee recorded more than 15,000 sales.
