"The Cherokee is a very capable small sport-utility vehicle that can also handle all off-road conditions," said Jim Arrigo, owner and President of Arrigo Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep. Two powerplant options are available for the 2014 Cherokee. There's a 2.4-liter, MultiAir four-cylinder that generates 184 horsepower and 171 lb.-ft. of torque. The efficiency is remarkable with this engine, but for those who want a little more under the hood, there's a 3.2-liter V6 that produces 271 horsepower and 239 lb.-ft. of torque. The V6 also delivers a best-in-class towing capacity of 4,500 pounds. "The Cherokee appeals to everybody, and it's exciting to be able to offer such a special vehicle in a segment we haven't really been playing in," said Arrigo.
"This is a game-changer for Chrysler," said Arrigo.

After 17 years selling cars in West Palm Beach, Fla., James Arrigo knows a thing or two about what consumers want. "There shouldn't be 1,000 ways to order a minivan," he says. And he's tired of watching Chrysler botch the launch of critical new models like the Sebring, a midsize sedan. "It should be a front-runner in that segment, but because of quality and marketing issues, it doesn't compete."For years Arrigo and outspoken dealers like him have offered suggestions for how Chrysler could sell more vehicles and improve its image. Too often, especially in recent years, when Chrysler was owned by Germany's Daimler, those ideas took a back seat to concerns about cost control or factory productivity. ow Chrysler has a new owner, new bosses and a newfound interest in what its dealers are saying. Between now and the end of the year Chrysler's executives are hitting the road for a series of "fireside chats" with dealers to solicit feedback on how the company can turn its business around and simultaneously help dealers improve their profits. he discussions are needed to repair dealer relations after a disastrous 2006. Chrysler built more cars than it could sell, forcing dealers into a financial bind: They had to pay higher borrowing costs to carry the extra inventory yet offer bigger discounts to move unsold cars off their lots. "We couldn't make any money," explained Arrigo, who is president of the Chrysler-Jeep Dealer Council. As inventories piled up, he says, "dealers lost faith in the company."The frosty relationship started to thaw in January, after Chrysler ousted its top sales and marketing executive and began putting in place more dealer-friendly policies. Under Cerberus Chrysler has accelerated those efforts.
Probably."Noting that 70% of Chrysler's sales are of trucks, SUVs and minivans, Arrigo says: "There's a huge passenger-car market that we haven't even begun to touch."For all the problems, however, Arrigo is more optimistic than he's ever been as a Chrysler dealer.

Jim Arrigo, chairman of the Chrysler-Jeep National Dealer Council, says he expects advertising for Chrysler and Jeep to focus more on brand identity and vehicle nameplates and less on sales events and incentives.
"Bring the Chrysler brand back to what it was in the past," says Arrigo, who owns a Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep dealership in Palm Beach, Fla. "Try to get more passion back in the brand.
