Best bargain cars at the New York auto show
2014 Jeep Cherokee
Jeep has brought back the Cherokee model and with it, a copious amount of top-notch features -- including more than 70 advanced safety and security features. While not a bargain in the economy car sense -- like some of the others on this list -- we've added the 2014 Jeep Cherokee because of its excellent gas mileage, which will save money in the long run.
The new Cherokee has improved its fuel economy by more than 45 percent in both of its new engine options. The 184-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and the 271-horsepower 3.2-liter V-6 engine are paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission, giving an expected fuel economy rating of up to 31 mpg. Like all Jeeps, the new Cherokee will also be highly capable at towing and off-road driving, offering three four-by-four systems based on how you'll use the vehicle. The V-6 model will have a towing capacity of 4,500 pounds.
On the inside, the Cherokee offers a soft-touch interior as well as a 7-inch LED instrument cluster, a media center featuring Uconnect and a unique cargo-management system.
