The 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk was named “Four Wheeler of the Year” by Four Wheeler magazine. The editors of the opinion-leading off-road enthusiast magazine give the award annually, said Fiat Chrysler spokesman Todd Goyer.
“The 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk marks the 13th time a Jeep vehicle has earned the prestigious title, Four Wheeler of the Year,” said Four Wheeler editor Christian Hazel.
“From our first competition won by the 1974 Jeep Cherokee to the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition, the 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk joins the ranks of other off-roadcapable Jeep vehicles earning the Four Wheeler of the Year award.
“The team of seasoned judges appreciated Cherokee Trailhawk’s cutting-edge technology, fresh styling, and luxurious interior amenities packed in a vehicle designed for the 21st century that still maintains true off-road capability.”
Four Wheeler’s jurors conduct a variety of tests over more than 1,000 miles on a variety of terrain, including pavement, gravel, dirt, sand, rocks, mud and snow at elevations ranging from sea level to more than 9,000 feet, Goyer said.
“Winning the prestigious ‘Four Wheeler of the Year’ award reinforces the fact that the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk is unquestionably the most capable mid-size SUV on the planet,” said Mike Manley, CEO – Jeep Brand.
“We are thrilled the influential editors of Four Wheeler magazine recognized Cherokee’s benchmark off-road capability, as well as its combination of new engine stopstart technology, exterior styling and interior amenities.”
Cherokee is available in four different models in the United States: Cherokee Sport, Cherokee Latitude, Cherokee Limited and the award-winning Cherokee Trailhawk.
