Jeep Liberty is out; Jeep Cherokee is back in for 2014

Have you been mourning the disappearance of the Jeep Cherokee since the nameplate was discontinued in the United States in the early 2000s? Well, you're in luck, reader! Chrysler recently announced that it would be bringing the Cherokee name out from storage, though it will replace the current Jeep Liberty.

Not too long ago, auto website Jalopnik.com released images of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, and four days later, Chrysler responded by releasing its own official images and a promise that the new vehicle would be making its way to the U.S. We've heard rumors about this for a while now, but now the official word has been given that the Liberty is out, and the Cherokee is in.

Chrysler explains that the new Cherokee will focus on fuel economy improvements of more than 45 percent vs. the Jeep Liberty, more best-in-class capability, and excellent on-road driving dynamics. The vehicle will be built at the Chrysler Toledo Assembly Plant in Ohio, and it will arrive in showroom sometime this fall.

Last year, Chrysler sold 75,483 Jeep Liberty models in the United States. The new Cherokee is set to make its official debut at the 2013 New York International Show this month.
