EPA fuel efficiency estimates are in for new Cherokee

If you like the new 2014 Jeep Cherokee, you will be pleased to hear that the fuel efficiency estimates from the EPA have been published. According to the EPA, the vehicle will get 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. The new Cherokee will go on sale later this month.

The MPG ratings are for the base model vehicle using the 184 hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with front wheel drive. The vehicle uses a nine-speed automatic transmission. The all-wheel-drive version gets 21 mpg on the highway and 28 mpg in the city.

Buyers who opt for the 271 hp 3.2-liter V6 will see 19 mpg city and 28 mpg on the highway or front-wheel-drive. Efficiency ratings for the all-wheel-drive V6 are 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. Those figures are pretty close to compact crossover segment averages.

Ram Trucks CEO Says No 707-hp Hellcat Pickup “At This Time”

Oct 30 2014 5:59pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The story at Chrysler these days is the supercharged Hellcat V-8 engine. Seriously, it’s a 707-hp engine you can buy in one of two relatively normal and inexpensive vehicles, the Charger and the Challenger. As exciting as that is, what really gets us excited is figuring out what Chrysler product the Hellcat will end up in next. We had lunch with Ram Trucks’ new CEO, Bob Hegbloom, and we had to ask: When will we ...

Study: Mileage Improvements Save Nation a Month's Worth of Gas

Oct 30 2014 2:11pm CDT | Source: Cars.com

Since October 2007, Michael Sivak and Brandon Schoettle of the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute have been tracking the month-to-month progress of the fuel economy for new vehicles sold in the U.S. In that time, this overall "window sticker" average mileage — as opposed to the actual real-world mileage vehicles get — has risen steadily from 20.1 mpg to 25.3, a 26 percent i ...

Exploring in L.A.: Redone 2016 Ford Explorer Headed to Los Angeles Show

Oct 30 2014 12:41pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The refreshed 2016 Ford Explorer is coming sooner than we thought when we recently spied the thing—it’s just weeks away. Look for the crossover utility to debut at the fair-weathered, traffic-snarled smog capital of the U.S., Los Angeles. Ford’s mid-cycle update is rather late on arrival, although SUV buyers haven’t truly minded. Even though the Explorer’s popularity has waned since its 1990 debut and heydey in the early 2000s, the vehi ...

The Pre-Owned 400 Club: 5 Ways to Get 400 Horsepower (or More) for $20,000

Oct 30 2014 9:22am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

We live in a world where 200 horsepower is economy-car fare, 300 horsepower is mildly interesting, and 400 horsepower is the minimum needed to command many enthusiasts’ attention. Big horsepower is affordable, too, if you know where to look. In the past decade, the world has seen its share of 400-hp cars, and they’ve now depreciated into the realm of attainability. At $20,000 or so, however, they’re not giveaways, and with as many as 100,000 miles on their odometers, they’re ...

Ferrari’s future success outside of Fiat-Chrysler questioned

Oct 30 2014 8:11am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

For Ferrari, proving it can thrive as an independent sports-car maker may be a tougher challenge than a Formula One victory. Following its spin-off next year from parent Fiat-Chrysler, the global cachet of the Ferrari name will be key to master hurdles such as the costs of developing cars that meet the standards of its elite customers and ever demanding regulators. Ferrari’s self-imposed production cap at about 7,000 ca ...

2015 BMW X5 M Photos and Info: Big Price, Big Cojones

Oct 29 2014 6:00pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The BMW X5 was not only one of the first true luxury SUVs, it was also one of the first seriously fast SUVs. The first generation was offered with a distinctly sporty naturally aspirated 4.4-liter V-8, later supplemented by a 4.6 and then a 4.8-liter unit. A one-off concept was even built with a 690-hp V-12. Then came the second generation, which received an outright M model powered by a twin-turbocharged V-8. Now BMW is launching the next version of the mega-X5, which is based on the ...
