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.
