Expert Rating

Not Available

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.

What you must know before buying the Jeep Cherokee

John Diether
Automotive Editor - November 6, 2019
  • 2019 Cherokee still on sale; 2020s arriving
  • Up to $3,250 rebate + Employee Pricing on 2019s
  • Lease offers take a pause
  • 0% APR for up to 60 months + bonus cash

Designed to sell:

The freshened 2019 Cherokee remains in good supply across the country. You should have no problem finding the one you want. As usual, pricing is aggressive.

The Sport trim has been dropped, leaving the Latitude as the entry-level model, not to mention the most popular. The plush Limited, rugged Trailhawk, and line-topping Overland models are stocked in much smaller numbers.

The carryover 2020 Cherokee continues arriving at dealers and supplies are looking good.

Current factory offers will remain in effect until December 2, 2019. Lease promotions listed here are available nationally, but rebates and APR offers can vary by region. These figures are for California. Black Friday promotions are already factored into these offers.

New ways to save big:

Everyone can get Employee Pricing (5% below invoice) this month on the 2019 Cherokee in return for paying a $200 fee.

On top of that, Jeep is offering a $3,250 rebate on the 2019 Latitude and Upland, and $2,500 on the other trims.

In addition, buyers who finance through Jeep at non-promotional rates will receive a $1,000 finance bonus toward any model.

The rebate on all 2020 Cherokee trims is $1,750, and a $750 finance bonus is available.

In-between leases:

Lease specials on the 2019 Cherokee appear to have ended for the model year. Offers on the 2020s haven't started yet, but they will probably appear by next month. For now, see your local dealer for a quote.

Choice of APR deals:

Instead of the standard rebate on a 2019 Cherokee, you can take advantage of 0% financing for 60 months throughout the lineup. The deal comes with $1,000 bonus cash. Your other option is 0% for 36 months, plus $2,500 bonus cash.

On the 2020 Cherokee, Jeep offers 0% for 36 months, plus $2,500 on all trims. Longer terms are available at incrementally higher rates.

2020 Jeep Cherokee Overview

Willis Kuelthau
Automotive Editor

What's New

The 2020 Jeep Cherokee sees only minor updates. The biggest is the increased availability of advanced safety tech, which can now be added to any trim except the Trailhawk. Otherwise, the Cherokee gets an expanded repertoire of rim and color options, plus connectivity with Amazon Alexa is available.

Choosing Your Jeep Cherokee

The Jeep Cherokee comes in five trims: Latitude, Latitude Plus, Limited, Trailhawk, and Overland. Prices start at $27,235 including destination for the Latitude and extend up to $38,490 for an Overland.

Engine Choices

The Cherokee comes with a choice of three engines: a 2.4-liter four-cylinder, a 3.2-liter V6, or a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
2.4L 4-Cylinder180 hp171 lb-ft25 mpg
3.2L V6271 hp239 lb-ft23 mpg
2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder270 hp295 lb ft26 mpg

The Latitude, Latitude Plus, and Limited come standard with the 2.4-liter unit, but offer the V6 for $1,745. The Latitude Plus and Limited are also available with the 2.0-liter turbo-four for a $2,245 premium. The Trailhawk and Overland come standard with the V6 and make the turbo engine available for $500.

All three engines use a nine-speed automatic transmission and can power either the front or all four wheels. Four-wheel drive is $1,500, except on the Trailhawk where it is standard.

The turbocharged engine is the winner in nearly every respect – it has more torque than the V6 and better fuel economy than the base engine. The only win for the V6 is towing capacity: it can tow 4,500 pounds to the turbo’s 4,000.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

All Jeep Cherokee models can seat five passengers. Rear leg room is fairly good at 40.3 inches, although the Cherokee is narrower than some rivals.

Cargo capacity, however, isn’t inspiring. The Cherokee can fit only 24.6 cubic feet of baggage behind the rear seats, and only 54.7 with the seats folded. These numbers don’t compare well to the competition — the Ford Escape and Nissan Murano both swallow around 67 cubic feet of cargo.


Safety Features

The Cherokee has a mixed record in the safety department. There are no standard active safety features on the base trim, but additional features are now more widely available for 2020. We applaud the increased availability, but as more competitors make these features standard, keeping them locked in packages looks old fashioned.

The Latitude Plus trim and up get standard blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear parking sensors. These three features are available on the base Latitude through the $695 SafetyTec package.

On the Limited and Overland, the available Technology Group ($1,595) adds adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, park assist, and automatic high beams. These features aren't available on the Trailhawk.

The Cherokee has a four-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA.

Connectivity

The Cherokee starts with a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The Trailhawk and Limited upgrade to an 8.4-inch touchscreen, where navigation is an $895 upgrade. The Overland gets the navigation-equipped 8.4-inch touchscreen, which includes Amazon Alexa compatibility this model year.


Latitude - From $27,235

The Cherokee Latitude keeps things basic with manually adjustable seats and cloth upholstery, but it does include 17-inch aluminum wheels, LED headlights and taillights, tinted sunscreen glass, and keyless entry.

Heated front seats are bundled with remote start and a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel in the Cold Weather Group ($895).

For 2020, Jeep offers an Upland appearance package for the Latitude. A $4,680 upgrade, the Upland includes the V6 engine, all-wheel drive, aggressive fascia, and blacked out trim.

Latitude Plus - From $28,890

The Latitude Plus trim adds a few creature comforts for a relatively modest price increase. The seats are upholstered in cloth and vinyl, the driver’s seat is eight-way power adjustable, the steering wheel is wrapped in leather, and the blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear parking sensors come standard.

Dual-zone automatic climate control still isn’t standard. It requires the Comfort and Convenience Group ($995), which also includes a power liftgate and remote start. An Alpine audio system is available for $695, while a sunroof is $1,595.

The Latitude Plus gets its own blackout package, here dubbed the Altitude. It’s similar to the Upland, but it adds 18-inch rims and doesn’t include the engine or four-wheel drive upgrade. That means it’s cheaper, costing just $995 extra.

Limited - From $32,845

The Cherokee Limited adds some luxury features, like 18-inch rims, leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, a power passenger seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, and the 8.4-inch infotainment screen.

This is where Jeep's full offering of active safety features becomes available in the Technology Group ($1,595). A hands-free liftgate is available as well, bundled with ventilated front seats and more in the Luxury Group ($1,345).

The premium sound system isn’t available on its own at this trim – getting it means selecting the Limited’s blacked-out trim, the High Altitude. Costing an extra $3,540, the High Altitude adds 19-inch wheels, the V6 engine, black leather upholstery, navigation, and unique exterior trim.

Trailhawk - From $36,000

The V6-equipped, 4WD Trailhawk is Jeep’s off-road version of the Cherokee. It comes with the usual barrage of all-terrain upgrades: extra clearance, knobby tires, a lockable rear differential, a beefier suspension, and sophisticated traction software. Of course, the Trailhawk gets Jeep’s usual aggressive exterior cues, including the flashy two-tone hood.

It doesn’t entirely skimp on creature comforts, including automatic climate control and the larger infotainment screen, but it's back to cloth/vinyl upholstery and a manually adjustable passenger seat.

The Trailhawk shares the available Comfort and Convenience Group ($995) and the Cold Weather Group ($895) of the lower trims, but it can’t get the more advanced safety tech.

Overland - From $38,490

The Overland trim is the closest Jeep has to a luxury crossover SUV. It comes with Nappa leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, 19-inch wheels, a hands-free liftgate, the Alpine audio system, and the 8.4-inch infotainment system with navigation.

The best active safety tech still isn’t standard, although it’s cheaper here at $1,095. Otherwise, just about everything except the sunroof is included with the Overland.

CarsDirect Tip

The Trailhawk is as capable a crossover as you’ll find away from pavement. For the best value in the 2020 Jeep Cherokee lineup, however, look to the Latitude Plus trim.
