Blue Jeep Cherokee Off Road Outside Mountains

Is the Next-Gen Jeep Cherokee Underway?

Blue Jeep Cherokee Off Road Outside Mountains

The first Jeep Cherokee to ever cross the assembly line was a re-imagined and rebadged two-door remix to the Jeep Wagoneer. Fast forward to the second generation, and the Cherokee transition to a fresh platform. By 1984, the Cherokee went from body-on-frame to gliding on a unibody construction. The Cherokee’s boxy exterior would mark the SUV’s place in history as one of the first modern SUVs with four doors. Moreover, the Cherokee would go on to establish the SUV segment and assist in constructing the automaker’s empire. 

However, in 2001 Jeep upset a lot of Cherokee lovers by renaming the SUV to Liberty for North America. The Liberty name would continue to survive the fourth-generation Cherokee, redesigned in 2008. 

By November 2013, Lady Liberty sang as long as she could, and Jeep returned the Cherokee nameplate to the North American market. With a complete refresh, new powertrains, extra features, and additional trims, the Jeep Cherokee reemerged, but so did the debate. During the time of the Cherokee’s reestablishment, controversy ensued, and sports and business corporations had to retire Native American names. So here we are nearly ten years later; where does the Jeep Cherokee stand?  

For starters, America’s favorite automaker is a mastermind brand that continues to grow and expand. For instance, the Jeep Grand Cherokee L now features three rows, and the accolades soon followed with the release. The full-size flagship, the Jeep Wagoneer, and the premium Grand Wagoneer also reprise their iconic roles. Moreover, Jeep also has a small electric crossover due for a debut in 2023.   

However, there’s little to share about the OG of Jeep’s empire. The Jeep Cherokee that once read welcomes consumers to the sport-utility vehicle segment now goes overlooked by enthusiasts. Now the Cherokee’s relationship with fans is no fault to fans, especially since the Jeep SUV hasn’t attained a refresh since the 2014 model year. Since the Cherokee hasn’t retained a refresh, the SUV is one of the oldest compacts on the market. Even the 2022 Jeep Compass welcomes a mid-cycle refresh resembling a miniature Wagoneer. 

So what’s Jeep’s plan for the Cherokee? Will the automaker ‘Old Yeller’ be the loyal SUV? 

The Cherokee Plan 

Global President of Jeep Brand Christian Meunier and head of Jeep Brand of North America Jim Morrison spoke about the future of the Jeep Cherokee. Both execs insist that the Cherokee still holds a purpose in the Jeep lineup. Morrison stated the plans for the next-generation Cherokee will be “bigger and better than ever.”

Morrison mentioned that the automaker would not meet expectations for the sixth-generation Cherokee anytime soon. However, when the Jeep Cherokee is ready for refinement, it will receive a lot of electrification. The automaker’s electrification plan will introduce the smaller Jeep in the first half of 2023; from there, an off-road SUV, and a family SUV will come to fruition in 2024.

Here Are the Best Accessories for the 2021 Jeep Cherokee

Jeep

The 2021 Jeep Cherokee is unlike any other crossover. The midsize crossover has off-road and towing capabilities; it also encompasses high-end technology and a plethora of powertrains. As a result, the Jeep Cherokee is the perfect SUV for power, execution, and style. It doesn’t matter if enthusiasts seek adventures or a local commute. The Cherokee holds class-leading specs to keep the Jeep SUV standing tall above the rest. 

The Jeep Cherokee carries nine available trims plus a handful of nifty features and accessories. Selecting the Cherokee over its competitors is a no-brainer, especially with the zestful V6 engine and all-wheel drive. Yet, however powerful the off-road SUV may be, the genuine difficulties lie in finding the right accessories. Thank goodness we are here to help, spend some quality time with the Jeep Cherokee’s interior and exterior accessories

Exterior Accessories

The Cherokee’s exterior looks the same across every trim. However, aside from the distinctive headlights and firm profile, these additions are sure to separate every fan’s Cherokee trim from the mundane. So again, there are a handful of options for exterior accessories, but these are accessories Cherokee enthusiasts should acquire sooner than later. 

First, there’s the hands-free power liftgate. The power liftgate provides access to the cargo without the use of hands. Next up, the windshield wiper de-icer is super convenient for inclement weather. Lastly, a tire fill alert notifies drivers when the tire pressure is abnormal. 

Tech Accessories

Some of the best attributes of the Jeep Cherokee are found nestled away in the SUV’s tech options.  First, there’s the UConnect 4C NAV inside the 8.4-inch touchscreen with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, Navigation, and drag-and-drop functionality. The Uconnect accessory assures that the driver is constantly connected with easy navigation through other features. 

There’s also the unforgettable Alexa compatibility. The Jeep SUV connects via Amazon Alexa and from there, Cherokee enthusiasts can start the car, check the fuel, and upgrade locations in the Navigation system all from the comfort of their home. 

Safety and Security Accessories 

No accessory list would come to completion without safety and security features. Although every premium option isn’t available for every trim, some standard features go above and beyond their call of duty. 

One of the best features the Cherokee has to offer is the full-speed forward collision warning with active braking. The full-speed forward collision feature allows the driver to react to any immediate hazard.  There’s also LaneSense Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist to guide the driver on a steady course.

Miami Lakes Auto Mall McIntosh

Jeep Chose McIntosh’s Audio System Here’s Why

Miami Lakes Auto Mall McIntosh

Audiophiles are obsessed with McIntosh audio systems, and it’s easy to understand why. But, unfortunately, the McIntosh name isn’t a household name. But first, understand that McIntosh keeps the home audio segment on lock. The New York-based company set out its journey to quality audio in 1949. Then, in the mid-’90s, McIntosh waltzed into the car audio arena, but unfortunately, it took two to tango. 

Automotive Transition 

Initially, McIntosh introduced the MX406 Audio Center Control. The Audio Control Center included AM/FM Tuner and a CD Player. In addition, the single-DIN unit incorporated speakers with the trademark McIntosh blue meters. 

The millennium strikes and McIntosh premiered the 200-watt McIntosh Audiophile Sound System for the third-generation Subaru Legacy and a Harley Davidson motorcycles system. By 2005-2006 the Ford GT received a customized audio system from McIntosh, but the relationship wasn’t lasting, and McIntosh retreated from the automotive audio industry. 

The Lessons of ‘Failure’

McIntosh set out a goal, arousing interest in the home audio arena. So they bought a Jeep Grand Cherokee and installed a reference audio system. Next, McIntosh took the Jeep to Detroit and demonstrated the home system to the Stellantis dream team: Executive automobile designer Ralph Gilles and Former CEO of Fiat Sergio Marchionne were captivated by the audio system. Both knew the McIntosh to be the perfect fit for the new Grand Cherokee L and the re-energized Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer

McIntosh MX1375

Available solely on the Jeep Grand Wagoneer, the entertainment system appears standard on the Obsidian and Series III models and optional on the Series II models. With 1,375 watts over 24 channels to 23 speakers stationary to 16 locations in the cabin. There are also 6×9-inch woofers in each door, four 2-inch ceiling mount speakers, and a 12-inch dual-coil subwoofer in the cargo. 

McIntosh MX950 

The audio system comes standard in the Grand Wagoneer, premium trims of the Grand Cherokee L, and optional in the Wagoneer Series III. The entertainment system consists of  950 watts over 17 channels through 19 speakers in 12 different locations throughout the vehicle. The speakers in both setups illuminate with the McIntosh logo, the volume and tuning knobs with ribbed edging similar to the home systems. 

The Sound of Music 

Attention to detail was the mantra. Jeep and McIntosh enriched the vehicles with quality sound and a vigorous bass in every trim level, starting with the trim fasteners and isolators on the interior panels. Jeep engineers also created a “low noise floor,” acoustically laminated glass, active noise cancellation, with sound restraining pads enclosed in the doors. The low noise floor stipulates a vehicle that sounds consistently impeccable, whether 80 mph or at a complete standstill.
