In past years, the gap in the comfort features offered between the Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Grand Cherokee cabins was large but, that changed in the 2014 model year, as you’ll find if you’re in the market for a used Jeep Grand Cherokee Rochester NY.
At Auction Direct USA, you’ll see many used Jeep Grand Cherokees from 2014 and several other model years at our location in Rochester, NY.
The passenger quarters are slightly more spacious in the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, making it easy to get comfortable in the available power driver seat, which offers ample adjustability. In the rear, the seat has recline and fore-and-aft adjustment, and the high-mounted bench supports adults' thighs while still offering comfortable headroom for back seat passengers.
Edmunds writes that it has “one of the better backseats in the compact crossover class.”
When it comes to powertrains and performance, the used Jeep Grand Cherokee Rochester NY delivers, too!
For example, a 2.4-liter four cylinder engine rated at 184 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque is standard on the 2014 edition. Optional on all but the base Sports model is a 3.2-liter V6 that delivers 271 horsepower and 239 pounds of torque. A nine-speed automatic transmission is standard with both engines.
You have your choice of front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive with either engine, but Trailhawk models are 4-WD only (and really designed with the off-road lover in mind).
Jeep offers two different 4WD systems. Standard on four-wheel-drive Sport, Latitude and Limited models is the light-duty Active Drive I 4WD system – a system that requires no input from the driver and is suitable for driving in wintry conditions.
Standard on the Trailhawk and optional on other 4WD Jeep Cherokees is the more deluxe Active Drive II system, which features low-range gearing to give the vehicle extra capability in off-road situations. The Trailhawk also has a locking rear differential to aid progress on rough terrain.
In addition, four-wheel-drive Cherokees feature a Selec-Terrain dial with selectable Auto, Snow, Sport and Sand/Mud modes to optimize traction. The Trailhawk features an additional Rock mode. And hill-start assist is standard on all Cherokees.
When it comes to fuel economy, the Cherokee’s 2014 EPA-rating ranges from 25 mpg combined (22 city/31 highway) with the V8 package (comparable to recent used models) to 22 mpg combined (19/28) for the V6 version.
Standard Jeep Grand Cherokee safety equipment on all 2014 Cherokees includes antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front and rear seat side airbags, side curtain airbags and front knee airbags – with a rearview camera available on some pre owned models.
The Cherokee continues to be a popular seller some 30 years after it was introduced – even among today's pavement-biased drivers. That’s why Auction Direct USA keeps several used Jeep Grand Cherokees Rochester NY available at all times. But, they never last long.
So whether you want to hit some trails or just want a durable, fun crossover SUV that is reliable off road or on the winter streets of the Northeast, visit Auction Direct USA in Rochester NY.
