About Jeep Cherokee

Although the 2017 Jeep Cherokee is sized and priced like the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape and Nissan Rogue, it is so much more than just a compact SUV with all-wheel-drive abilities. In fact, the Cherokee line is all-inclusive, running the gamut from basic transportation to rugged off-road-ready SUV. In between are a number of models, some showing a more sporting side to compete with the SUVs like the Mazda CX-5, while others offer luxury on par with the Lexus RX, Land Rover Evoque and BMW X3. Jeep’s Cherokee compact SUV suffers from some shortcomings, however, like its underpowered 4-cylinder engine and, on upper trims, a rather exorbitant price tag. An available V6 solves the power problem, plus provides an impressive 4,500-pound tow rating.

Pros: "Fun to Drive, Muscular Stance"

Cons: "Snow Chains"

"2016 Trailhawk, V-6, Active Drive 2, Selec-Terrain System. Due to its wind-swept aerodynamics, this Jeep handles well in heavy winds. More importantly, I havent had the tranny issues noted in earlier-year Trailhawks. Gas mileage is 24.6 (highway) and 19 mpg (city). The Trailhawks unique Italian-inspired design and muscular stance is eye catching. Something to be aware of: snow chains are not recommended unless you downsize your tires. Apparently, space between the wheel wells and the original P245/66R17 tires is tight and chains may cause damage if the tires are not downsized."

"Shortly after purchase the entire radio/navi/screen/unit had to be replaced. Then squeaky fan which was replaced and yesterday radio/screen went out again. Putting in the third screen/radio/navi unit. Adult owned and cant get the screen off of the word loading. The suv is good in snow, but dont plan on using radio, navigation or answer your phone as advertised without a lot of replacement parts and time spent in the shop. Not great for brand new. YUK! Not reliable electronics, but I guess it always starts. A brand new car that starts is all I can say that is reliable."

"I am leasing my 2016 Cherokee Trailhawk edition. I absolutely love this vehicle. This vehicle dominates snowy road conditions. Except for needing to re-lubricate the sunroof seal I have not had one single issue with this vehicle. I get compliments all the time on it. No regrets with this choice."
