2014 Jeep CherokeeThe 2014 Jeep Cherokee has a lot to celebrate. After a 12 year hiatus in North America, the Cherokee has come back strong. This newly redesigned model topped 18 competitors to become the Automotive Journalists Association of Canada’s “2014 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year.” Those rivals included models that could have six-figure prices. Not only has the affordable 2014 Cherokee impressed industry experts, but it is also winning over drivers as well, as the new Cherokee already set a company sales record in its segment.

The Canadian Car of the Year Awards

Beginning in October of 2013, 80 of the most respected automotive journalists all around Canada congregated in Niagara Falls for an event called “TestFest.” During this latest “TestFest,” 174 vehicles that are new to the market or have undergone significant changes are evaluated. Since the 2014 Jeep Cherokee took the top spot in December as AJAC’s “Best New SUV/CUV Under $35,000,” the vehicle was eligible to be crowned as the “2014 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year.”
