2015 Chrysler 200 and 2014 Jeep® Cherokee Named to Ward’s 10 Best Interiors List for 2014

April 10, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – The all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 and 2014 Jeep Cherokee have been named two of Ward’s 10 Best Interiors for 2014, compiled by WardsAuto.

“To once again be recognized by Ward’s Auto for their ‘10 Best Auto Interiors’ demonstrates Chrysler Group’s commitment to deliver premium materials, unique features and exquisite style to each of our brand’s specific consumer,” said Ralph Gilles – Senior Vice President – Product Design, Chrysler Group LLC. “While the interiors of the Chrysler 200 and the Jeep Cherokee are in contrast to each other both offer innovation and clever details that meet the needs of their respective consumer.”

With a goal of achieving the ultimate driving experience, the Chrysler Group design teams used creation, personal inspiration and attention-to-detail to create the Chrysler 200 and Jeep Cherokee interiors.

“While created with two different customers in mind using different themes, our teams did use the same key principles to design the all-new interiors of new Chrysler 200 and Jeep Cherokee,” said Klaus Busse – Head of Interior Design, Chrysler Group LLC. “Our interior designers conceived both vehicles by first establishing an emotional design impact for both vehicles, and then used high-quality materials including state-of-the-art technology along with developing clever storage features that use the new interior space wisely. Both vehicles clearly express these principles, and we’re extremely proud that Ward’s has recognized both new interior designs.”  

Eight WardsAuto editors spent two months evaluating 41 vehicles during their routine commutes in and around metro Detroit and submitted score sheets ranking the entries on features such as ergonomics, driver information, fit-and-finish, materials, value, safety, comfort and design harmony.

“Designers paid extraordinary attention to detail in the new Chrysler 200C interior design and it shows. Specially engineered wood veneer sweeps across the instrument panel and has a wonderful natural feel,” said Drew Winter – Editor-in-Chief, WardsAuto World magazine. “After this year’s brutal winter, the judges developed a real soft spot for the new Jeep Cherokee Limited. Its interior is roomy, comfortable, and boldly styled with highly sculpted shapes and contrasting colors. Fold-flat rear seats add lots of utility and the Uconnect system is the best in the business.”

2015 Chrysler 200 Interior
The interior of the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 has a “wow” factor. It’s a striking appearance, one of contemporary luxury but with graceful movement. Hand-sculpted, fluid shapes and clean, expressive surfaces are found throughout the cabin. The fluid shapes carry from the instrument panel around to the door panels. The available open-pore wood trim was designed to visually “hold” the instrument panel in place.
The well-crafted components in the interior of the 2015 200 deliver world-class levels of fit and finish for drivers and passengers alike. Furniture-like mechanisms, such as the sliding cup holders in the innovative center console are sturdy and operate smoothly.
The centerpiece of the new 200’s interior is the innovative center console. The contemporary design is pleasing to look at while offering clever functionality that is enabled by full electronic gear shifting with a rotary shift knob. This leading-edge technology doesn’t need the mechanical linkage of traditional shifters that take up space in the center of the vehicle, enabling Chrysler designers to fully utilize the space. A pass-through storage area at the front of the console is accessible by both the driver and front-seat passenger. A thoughtful opening at the rear of the pass-through storage area allows for wires and cables to directly connect to the power supply and media center located in the center console.

2014 Jeep Cherokee Interior
The inspiration for the new 2014 Jeep Cherokee interior included exotic locations and terrain around the world that brought beautiful imagery to mind – Morocco at night, Mt. Vesuvius in Italy and the Grand Canyon.
The Cherokee interior is a sophisticated blend of hand-sculpted fluid shapes, high-quality materials, innovative color and material choices, precision craftsmanship, state-of-the-art technology and thoughtful, clever features. It is inviting and comfortable.
The all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee stays true to the Jeep brand with design cues from the brand’s heritage. The signature trapezoidal plan view feature line is classic Jeep, reminiscent of the trapezoidal wheel arches on the exterior. The center stack bezel is inspired by the outline of the front grille of the 1940s Willys Jeep and continues the design language of its larger sibling, the Grand Cherokee.

The winners of Ward’s 10 Best Interiors 2014 will be honored on Thursday, May 21 at theWardsAuto Interiors Conference in Dearborn, Mich.
