The all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee and the new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee – the most awarded SUV ever – continue their winning ways with three more accolades from the Active Lifestyle Vehicle (ALV) awards.

The 10th annual Carspondent.com “Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year” awards competition took place in Chandler, Arizona, on Saturday, Oct. 19. More than 100 athletes and outdoor enthusiasts from around the country who participate in sports such as marathon running, bicycling, soccer and kayaking, evaluated and judged new vehicles in the 10 award categories in this unique competition.

Jeep vehicles were the biggest winners in the ALV event, taking three of the 10 categories:

Green (alternative fuel and hybrid powertrains) – Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel



“We are thrilled to have won these important Active Lifestyle Vehicle awards for the Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee,” said Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “They are especially rewarding as Jeep vehicles more than any others represent a true active lifestyle. The athletes and outdoor enthusiasts who served as jurors clearly recognized these Jeep vehicles as being perfect for their active lifestyles.”

The ALV awards are the only annual vehicle awards in which active, outdoor enthusiasts choose the winners, along with a small contingent of automotive journalists who accompany them in the ride-and-drive tests. Testing includes a challenging off-road course as well as on-road driving.

"The 10th annual ALV program was our most competitive ever, with more athletes and manufacturers participating. Athletes have always responded to the Jeep brand because of the products’ ‘go-anywhere, do-anything’ orientation,” said Nina Russin, a co-founder of the Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year awards. “In addition, clean diesel technology has made the Jeep Grand Cherokee more environmentally friendly. As athletes, we are all mindful of preserving the planet for future generations."

The ALV awards were co-founded by Bob Babbitt, a member of the Ironman Hall of Fame, and Jim Woodman, longtime journalist, triathlete and founder of Active.com as well as Nina Russin, longtime distance runner and auto journalist.

Popular Jeep® Altitude Models Return For 2014


2014 Jeep Cherokee, Grand Cherokee and Wrangler debut special-edition Altitude models

New Jeep Altitude models feature unique “blacked out” exteriors with distinct, aggressive flair

Available for first time on Cherokee, and returning for Grand Cherokee and Wrangler, the new models join the 2014 Jeep Compass and Patriot Altitude models that are in dealerships now

New special-edition Altitude models to arrive in Jeep showrooms this spring


January 22, 2014 , Houston -

New special-edition ‘Altitude’ models of the 2014 Cherokee, Grand Cherokee and Wrangler were introduced this morning at the Houston Auto Show. Featuring unique “blacked-out” exteriors with a distinct and aggressive flair, the vehicles arrive in Jeep showrooms this spring – thanks to a positive consumer response from earlier Jeep Altitude models.

Two years ago, Jeep introduced a production-intent concept Grand Cherokee at the Houston Auto Show, and connected with customers to name the model. More than 100,000 entries were submitted by Jeep enthusiasts, with ‘Altitude’ emerging as the winning vehicle name. The brand then created a limited run of Altitude models across the Jeep lineup.

“The unique ‘blacked-out’ theme of the Jeep Altitude models resonated so well with consumers two years ago that it makes perfect sense to bring them back now, particularly since we have new versions of the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee,” said Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “What began as a production-intent concept and naming contest generated significant buzz and evolved into a lineup of special-edition Jeep vehicles that appeal to many consumers – especially those wanting a very distinct, aggressive and edgy look.”

The new, special-edition 2014 Cherokee, Grand Cherokee and Wrangler Altitude models will arrive in Jeep showrooms this spring. Jeep Compass Altitude and Jeep Patriot Altitude models are available now.
