Cherokee current
We would never recommend trying to drive a vehicle through swift moving water…unless of course your machine of choice is a remote control car.  The owner of this Jeep Cherokee RC car isn’t afraid of a little water.

Jeep Cherokee Roll
This Jeep Cherokee driver experienced the full effects of gravity after putting his rig on its tail.  That was a LONG way to roll!

Big Tires
Many think that bigger is always better in the off-road world. But these vehicles really take the idea of bigger tires to the next level. Here are five vehicles that that push the envelope of “bigger is better” when it comes to running big off-road tires.

Jeep Cherokee Jump Water
We’ve seen some great Jeep Cherokee jumps in our day, but we’ve never seen one completely submerged in water upon landing.  Apparently the driver was planning for a wild ride because he had the good sense to strap on a helmet. Watch this Jeep Cherokee take on a pond.

Nice Save
Most of the time, when a Jeep driver feels the vehicle going over, there is rarely enough time to shift gears and save the crash.  This guy narrowly avoided a rollover thanks to his incredibly fast reflexes.

With Jeep recently releasing the new 2014 Jeep Cherokee, the Mopar team went to work creating a Trailhawk version of the Cherokee with a few added goodies to create the Cherokee Trail Carver at the 2013 SEMA Show.

THUMB-Tables-Moab-Diner-3-27-13Earlier in the month, we posted a news item about the BlueRibbon Coalition working to raise funds through the sale of an Easter Jeep Safari-themed t-shirt that would be sold in the Moad Diner. The shirt, designed by RCH Designs, would generate money to help keep trails open to four-wheeling in Moab, Utah.

We at Off-Road.com try to stop in at least once to the Moab Diner for some of their famous green chili, and we were pleasantly surprised to see some off-road-themed tables throughout the joint during the 47th Easter Jeep Safari.

Leaked photos last week prompted Jeep to at least reveal images of the 2014 Cherokee, which hit the news cycle while we were in Texas testing the new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The all-new design of the popular Jeep Cherokee platform is certainly unique.

The new 2014 Cherokee will be filling the spot of the Liberty, which will not return to the company’s lineup in 2014. It does feature styling of the Grand Cherokee and Compass, but its size and smaller headlights also put it more in line to the Nissan Juke and vehicles of that size.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich.– An original 1941 Willys MA is the focal point of an anniversary exhibition at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, Mich., that celebrates one of the automotive industry’s most iconic vehicles.  70 Years of Jeep® runs April 19 – Dec. 30, 2011.

Featuring a changing array of eight production and concept vehicles, 70 Years of Jeep traces the vehicle’s evolutionary rise from military reconnaissance use to the transportation of choice in navigating all manner of terrain for millions of adventure-seekers.  The special exhibit also features historical images, memorabilia and extensive narrative that chronicles Jeep’s embodiment of freedom and pride for seven decades.

The Museum is showcasing Willys MA78621, one of approximately 45 known 1941 models in the world, an estimated 20 of which are restored.  Of the 20 restored vehicles, eight are in the U.S.  Willys MA78621 is on loan from the private collection of George and Bernadette Hollins of Palos Park, Ill. who have traced the vehicle’s origins back to July 5, 1941, the day it was delivered to the U.S. Army from the Willys-Overland plant in Toledo, OH.  It is believed to be one of four MA shipped to the 15th Infantry for testing in Fort Lewis, Wash.
