What's New

The 2022 Jeep Cherokee SUV adds a new X trim that brings the Trailhawks off-road attitude without the pricey hardware, brings more standard equipment to the Latitude Lux trim, and installs an 8.4-inch infotainment screen on all trims.

Choosing Your Jeep Cherokee

There are five trims available: Altitude, Latitude Lux, X, Trailhawk, and Limited, and base prices range from $31,590 to $39,590.

Engine Choices

There are three engines available across the Cherokee lineup although only the Latitude Lux and Limited trims can be equipped with the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine for $695. The Altitude and Latitude Lux trims are standard with front-wheel drive and offer all-wheel drive for $1,500.

The 3.2-liter V6 is available with the Trailer Tow Group which increases the Cherokee’s towing rating to 4,500 pounds.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The five-passenger 2022 Jeep Cherokee’s 182-inch length and 73-inch width are basically identical to the Toyota RAV4, Subaru Forester, and Honda CR-V. Inside, the Jeep offers 57.6-inches of shoulder room and 37.9 inches of headroom for the front row, and 40.3 inches of legroom and 38.5 inches of headroom for those in back which are also within an inch of its competitors.

Cargo capacity, however, is not the Cherokee’s strong suit with 25.8 cubic feet behind the second row and 54.7 cubic feet with the seatbacks folded, compared to the CR-V’s best-in-class respective volumes of 39.2 and 75.8 cubic feet.

Safety Features

The 2022 Cherokee is equipped with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic detection, and lane-keep assist. Adaptive cruise control and park assist with braking capability are available on the Trailhawk through the Technology Group ($1,345) and are standard on the Limited trim.

NHTSA awards the Jeep with an overall rating of four stars while IIHS rates its crashworthiness as Good and crash avoidance with a vehicle as Superior when equipped with the adaptive cruise control system. The Cherokee’s headlights are rated as marginal and it’s notable that the automatic emergency braking system is not rated for detecting pedestrians.


All trims feature Jeep’s previous-generation infotainment system (Uconnect 4), an 8.4-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM, Bluetooth, and USB input while navigation and HD Radio are available on the Trailhawk and Limited trims. The Latitude Lux trim gains additional USB power ports and a 115-volt power outlet and the Limited trim features a 10-speaker 506-watt Alpine sound system that is available on the Trailhawk.

2022 Jeep Cherokee Altitude - MSRP From $31,590

The Altitude takes over as the base trim. Most notable for its darkened look with black 17-inch wheels, black roof rails, and gloss black exterior window trim, grille surrounds, exterior accents, and badging, the entry trim also features LED headlight and taillights, heated cloth seats, rain-sensing wipers, a heated wiper park area, and heated mirrors.

The Sun & Sound Group adds a panoramic sunroof and the upgraded stereo for $2,295.

2022 Jeep Cherokee X - MSRP From $34,840

The new-for-2022 X trim adds standard all-wheel drive, a raised off-road suspension, larger fender flares, black 17-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, and a high-clearance rear fascia and rear tow hook taken from the Trailhawk trim to bring a more rugged look. To achieve its more attractive price, the X maintains a simplified list of features yet still includes notable items such as heated seats, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a 3.5-inch driver information display.

The Trailer Tow Group is available for $995 and features lower gearing, additional engine cooling, a hitch, and trailer wiring and the Sun & Sound Group is offered as well.

2022 Jeep Cherokee Latitude Lux - MSRP From $34,840

The Latitude Lux trim gains dual exhaust outlets, 17-inch satin carbon alloy wheels, a black grille with chrome surrounds, a power tailgate, proximity entry, leather-trimmed seating with power adjustability, a seven-inch gauge cluster display, and dual automatic climate control. The Sun & Sound Group is also optional.

2022 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk - MSRP From $37,890

The Trailhawk adds additional hardware to achieve Jeep’s own Trail Rated status including high-clearance front and rear bumpers, skid plates, a locking rear differential, (red) tow hooks, off-road suspension, and 17-inch wheels with all-terrain tires. Despite the rugged exterior, the interior doesn’t forego comfort as evidenced by heated cloth seats with an eight-way power driver’s seat, dual-zone climate control, and a seven-inch gauge cluster display while also offering several option packages.

The Comfort/Convenience Group is $895 and includes a hands-free power tailgate and an auto-dimming rearview mirror and the Premium Leather Package is $1,295 and adds leather seats with ventilation, an eight-way power adjustable front passenger seat, memory positioning for the driver, and power-folding mirrors.

The Sun, Sound & Nav Group additionally includes navigation (as the name implies) and is priced at $2,895. The Trailer Tow Group is again available for $995.

2022 Jeep Cherokee Limited - MSRP From $39,590

The Limited builds off of the Latitude Lux trim and includes 18-inch wheels, a black grille with chrome surround, chrome trim on the rear bumper, piano black interior trim, driver’s position memory, and the features of the Technology Group and Sun & Sound Group. The Limited Elite Group is offered for $1,695 and includes 19-inch wheels, a hands-free power tailgate, chrome front tow hooks, ventilated premium leather seats, heated second-row seats, and navigation.

V6 Power Now Comes Standard. The 2022 Jeep Cherokee’s lineup has been trimmed down for the model year. Last year, the Cherokee was available in a total of nine trims. For 2022, Jeep is offering the compact SUV in four trims.

Unlike last year, when the Cherokee came standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, the 2022 Cherokee is equipped with a 3.2-liter V6 engine. The V6 is a powerful engine, cranking out 270 horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque. This is one of the more powerful engines in the class and endows the Cherokee with strong performance. With this engine, the Cherokee has a class-leading towing capacity of up to 4,500 pounds.

A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine continues to be optional. The turbo engine makes the same horsepower as the V6, but brings 295 pound-feet of torque. Depending on trim level, the turbo four-cylinder engine is an extra $695. While the turbocharged engine has a little bit of lag off the line, it feels peppier than the V6. It also brings better fuel economy with a combined rating of 26 mpg. The V6 can get up to 23 mpg combined.

Seriously Capable Off-Road. The Cherokee may not be as capable as the Wrangler or Grand Cherokee, but it’s one of the more capable off-roaders in the compact class. In the Trailhawk guise, the Cherokee comes with off-road suspension, heavy-duty skid plates, all-terrain tires, and a more rugged design. The Trailhawk trim also comes with Jeep’s Selec-Terrain traction control system and a locking rear differential.

For drivers that aren’t interested in tackling grueling terrain, even regular Cherokees offer enough capability to handle dirt trails without breaking a sweat. The base X trim should provide most drivers with enough off-roading capability, as it comes with all-terrain tires, standard 4WD, and a one-inch lift.

When not off-roading, the Cherokee delivers a balanced ride. The SUV’s suspension is relatively firm, which keeps body movement in check, while the SUV rides over bumps smoothly. The steering doesn’t provide a lot of feedback, but it’s accurate and has a nice weight.

Easy-To-Use Tech Features. For 2022, the Cherokee gets a tech upgrade with a standard 8.4-inch touchscreen. Last year, the compact SUV came standard with a seven-inch screen. In addition to the 8.4-inch touchscreen, the Cherokee comes standard with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and six audio speakers.

Jeep’s infotainment system is one of the easier ones to use thanks to intuitive menus, simple controls, and quick response times. The 8.4-inch touchscreen also has sharp graphics.

On the safety front, the Cherokee comes with a long list of standard safety features. Blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking are all included. Compared to the competition, the Cherokee is missing standard adaptive cruise control, but it’s available on higher trims.

Passenger Space Over Cargo Space. On the outside, the Cherokee is larger than the majority of options in the compact segment. Because of that, one would expect the Cherokee to be more spacious than it is on the inside.

Because of the Cherokee’s design which includes small windows and a high beltline, the compact SUV leads passengers to feel confined. The SUV does have roomy seating for adults in both rows.

When it comes to cargo capacity, the Cherokee has one of the smallest cargo areas in the class. With the rear seats in place, the SUV offers up to 25.8 cubic feet of cargo space. Lowering the adjustable cargo floor increases cargo capacity to 27.6 cubic feet of space. Folding the rear seats down results in a total of 54.7 cubic feet of cargo space. That’s one of the lowest figures in the segment.

Final Thoughts. Thanks to a few updates – we’re not sure if they’ll stick around throughout the entire year – the 2022 Jeep Cherokee is a more competitive SUV than before. Unfortunately, against newer, fresher compact SUVs, the Jeep feels dated. It now comes with a powerful V6 engine and an impressive 8.4-inch touchscreen, but its off-roading capability is still the prime reason for choosing it over other SUVs.

In comparison, the all-new Mazda CX-50 brings all of the same strengths as the CX-5, but adds a more rugged design and extra ground clearance. The Hyundai Tucson doesn’t have the same off-roading capability, but has a more upscale interior, more high-tech features, and more fuel-efficient engines.
