One of the best features of an arcade or simulation style racing game is the ability for players to customize every detail of their ride, from tinkering with the aesthetic for the right look to adjusting the performance to ensure a first-place finish.  With about a month to go before the release of the 2014 Cherokee, Jeep presents a create-a-vehicle feature of their own with the Jeep Cherokee Configurator.

Users first pick between the Sport, Latitude, Limited, and Trailhawk models and drive options (4WD or 4×4) where available.  From there, you may select your choice of color before being given an extensive list of options.  These include individual choices like 9 amplified speakers with subwoofer, black hood decal, full sunroof, and engine block heater.

Additionally, users can apply a number of packages to their 2014 Cherokee, including Technology Group (includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Advanced Brake Assist, Backup Camera), Cold Weather Group (includes heated seats and steering wheel, remote start, and windshield wiper de-icer), and Comfort/Convenience Group (includes A/C Auto Temp. Control with Dual Zone Control, humidity sensor, power seating, and universal garage door opener).

We opted to tinker with a 2014 Cherokee Trailhawk 4×4, adding every high-end accessory and package offered (including upgrading to the 3.2L V6 24-Valve VVT engine for $1,495), all of which adds more than $10k to the overall vehicle price and makes it an insanely  versatile, beautiful, and powerful ride that is, appropriate of its digital analog, absolutely game.
