Expert Rating

21 City / 28 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2017 Jeep Cherokee OVERVIEW

When Jeep's senior compact crossover hit the streets three years ago, buyers instantly liked what they saw. Since then, the Cherokee has become a top seller for the brand. To keep the ball rolling for 2017, the Cherokee receives its first significant update.

What's New for 2017

The Cherokee gets a substantial restyle at the front and rear, including a new grille and sleeker lighting and bumpers. The interior has been mildly freshened as well. Revised suspension tuning promises sharper handling on all models.

Choosing Your Jeep Cherokee

The Cherokee offers a good deal of passenger space for its class, and the rear seats slide and recline so everyone can get comfortable. You get 24.6 cubic feet of cargo space with a full crew aboard, and 54.9 cubic feet with the seats folded. While these are passable figures, the interior layout clearly favors passenger room.

The standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine generates 184 horsepower. If that's not enough, you can opt for a 3.2-liter V6 with a hearty 271 horsepower. Both engines are paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission.

There are two available all-wheel drive systems. Active Drive I is designed for bad weather and light off-road duty, while Active Drive II adds low-range gearing and a locking rear differential for true go-anywhere capability. Both systems feature a terrain selector and can be matched with either engine.

The Cherokee comes in five trim levels, from fairly basic to downright plush:


Carries all the expected standard features for this class, plus Bluetooth phone and audio, and a six-speaker sound system with an SD card reader. The Cold Weather Group adds heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, heated power-folding side mirrors, remote start, and wiper de-icers. The Sport rolls on 17-inch steel wheels and comes with the four-cylinder engine only.


Adds a large bundle of convenience and appearance features, including a rearview camera, alloy wheels, roof rails, foglamps, automatic headlamps, body-color door handles and mirrors, privacy glass, a folding passenger seat, and LED interior lighting. The available Comfort/Convenience package tacks on a power liftgate, keyless ignition, a power driver seat, and dual-zone automatic climate control. There's also a SafetyTec Group with blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, satellite radio, and rear parking sensors. The Cold Weather Group remains optional. The V6 engine becomes available at this level.


Comes standard with Active Drive II and off-road features like skid plates, all-terrain tires, tow hooks, and hill descent control. You also get special suspension tuning and higher ground clearance. Other upgrades include cloth and leather upholstery, a larger information display with color graphics, Jeep's Uconnect infotainment interface, and satellite radio. The Latitude's option packages remain available. In addition, you can order a Leather Interior Group with full leather upholstery, heated front seats with driver power, and a heated steering wheel. The Ventilated/Memory Seat Group adds ventilated front seats and driver memory functions. The safety-oriented Technology Group tacks on advanced features like adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, and an automated parking system. A navigation system is a standalone option.


Does without the Trailhawk's off-road hardware, but comes standard with leather seating, the contents of the Comfort/Convenience package, and 18-inch wheels. The available Luxury Group adds upgraded leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, driver memory, and a power tailgate. The SafetyTec Group, Technology Group, and navigation system continue as options.


Comes standard with nearly everything you can get on the lesser models (only the Technology Group remains optional). The Overland also gets an extended Nappa leather interior, berber carpeting, wood steering wheel trim, and a premium Alpine sound system. The outside wears a monochromatic paint job, chrome accents, and polished alloy wheels.

All Cherokee models are eligible for a 4,500-pound towing package. The Latitude and above can also get a dual-pane sunroof and the Overland's Alpine sound system.

CarsDirect Tip

The Trailhawk is the obvious choice for buyers who like to leave the road now and then. It's one of just a few compact crossovers with uncompromising off-road capability. For everyone else, the Limited offers the most content for the money, even though most buyers gravitate to the more affordable Sport.
