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.

Rumblings of a deal have been, well, rumbling since July, and now TRW Automotive Holdings has agreed to sell its entire business to ZF Friedrichshafen for $13.5 billion, essentially creating a super, one-stop-shop supplier for powertrain and safety equipment. Livonia, Michigan–based TRW, which develops a ...

The Jeep Compass is a companion piece to the Jeep Patriot. The compact crossovers share underpinnings, but while the Patriot is styled with more quintessentially Jeep cues, the Compass is themed more like a rally-ready hatchback. Like the Patriot, the Compass is a rival for vehicles like the Nissan Ju ...

New York Times: NHTSA Has 'Record of Missteps'

Sep 15 2014 10:41am CDT | Source: Cars.com

A New York Times investigation into the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration alleges that the nation's top auto safety regulator spent the past decade stumbling over recalls and withholding its legal powers to regulate an auto industry with record-breaking recalls in 2014. Perhaps the most damning part: Since 2000, automakers are required to report any claims of serious injury or death as a result of vehicle defects. NHTSA is allowed to make what's called a ...
