Off-roading in a 2014 Jeep Cherokee

Where is Hot-Lips?

Mitch Claw, Jeep Vehicle Line Engineer (VLE), drove with Lou Ann Hammond, CEO, Driving the Nation, in the new Jeep Cherokee around Canyon Ranch in Southern California. Is the 2014 Jeep Cherokee everything Jeep wants it to be? Claw directs Hammond over a rugged loop of the hot, dusty off-road course that has seen such TV series as MASH produced here.

Claw tells us about the car while telling us what gear to put it in. What is the rear lock?

We have waited for the iconic Jeep and the wait is over, let’s drive.
