Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

The 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is a Chrysler global engine (called Tigershark), powerful enough for the globe maybe, but with no power to spare. No room for a heavy load. With five occupants and/or a dozen cinderblocks in back, it’s a slug.

For the small fuel cost and extra price, the 3.2-liter V6 with nearly 90 more horsepower is a better call. It’s quick, confident and refined. It does make the Cherokee heavier in front, so it’s less nimble, and that’s a consideration. The V6 might not be the call for rugged duty, like a lot of driving on dirt roads. But it’s the call for sure if we’re talking highway towing.

The 9-speed automatic can be balky, indecisive and late to shift. Sport mode makes it better.

Cherokee behaves okay on the pavement, about average. The steering is crisp and the ride well-damped, but for everyday driving, there are better crossovers.

Off the road, where Jeeps rule, it’s another matter. With an I4 engine and the Active Drive II system, the Cherokee’s backwoods talents are amazing.

A Cherokee Trailhawk can conquer hills like you wouldn’t believe, while continuing safely and very slowly back down, using the hill descent control. With its taller ride height and off-road tires, at low speeds, the Trailhawk absorbs almost everything.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

The Cherokee has lovely lines for an SUV, not traditional; even the seven-bar grille is stylized. The headlamps are separated from the LED running lights, giving the front a tiered appearance that’s less than Jeep-like. It’s sure not square, like a Jeep Patriot for example. Even though the design has been around for five years, the Cherokee’s unexpectedness keeps it fresh.

The rear end and sides are more ordinary.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

The cabin is handsome and quiet. It’s nicely finished, generally well composed, and quite refined. It’s more sporty than suv-like, blending colorful elements with subtlety. We just wish the controls weren’t hard to find. It would be nice if function matched the form.

However, the infotainment system is clearly laid out, and the screen is responsive. In-car data is available by subscription.

The front seats are comfortable, but the cabin is narrow so shoulder room is limited, as wide drivers might rub the door panels or console, and tall ones might have trouble finding a suitable position. The headrests sit somewhat forward.

The rear seat can take a third passenger in the center, without argument, for a short trip. The three of them will feel cramped, although the seat slides back a few inches, and that helps.

There’s plenty of storage spots for small items, around the cabin. For larger items, there’s a decent 24.6 cubic feet behind the rear seat, and a healthy 58.9 cubic feet when the rear seats and front seat are folded. The cargo floor is somewhat high.


New Car Test Drive

Jeep Cherokee has many faces. We recommend getting all-wheel drive. The V6 is superior for everyday driving, though the four-cylinder offers better handling on unpaved roads. The Trailhawk is best for rugged terrain. The Overland is nicely trimmed, if it’s in the budget. We found the 9-speed automatic unrefined.
