Now that winter appears to be finally coming to an end, it is time for the New England Motor Press Association to name their annual winner of the Winter Vehicle of New England contest. And for the fourth consecutive year, the Jeep® Grand Cherokee has come away with the victory. However, this year, the new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel was the model that won the award.

When it comes to brutal winters, New Englanders have it nearly as bad as we do in Grand Rapids, seeing huge amounts of snowfall and frigid cold. This is why winning the Winter Vehicle of New England is such a huge deal for the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids residents love. Significantly updated for the 2014 model year, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee features a number of features that make it a perfect winter vehicle, beginning with the new eight-speed automatic transmission that ensures a smooth ride.

Also, the four-by-four driving system makes it so that you have a safe and secure ride over any ice patches that may have formed, while the SelecTerrain system has a setting that automatically adjusts the suspension for driving in icy conditions. President of the New England Motor Press Association, Craig Fitzgerald had nothing but good things to say about the award-winner, stating, “Grand Cherokee continues to manage New England's snow and ice with highly competent handling and traction, an excellent ride, and a comfortable, tasteful interior, with proper cold weather amenities.

Of course, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is also more than appropriate for the other seasons, featuring a number of technological innovations, such as GPS navigation, satellite radio, and smartphone integration. Come check it out at our Grand Rapids Jeep dealership!
