Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

If the 2017 Jeep Cherokee is going to stand out during your search for a small crossover SUV, its exceptional off-road ability is likely going to come to the fore. That's what Jeeps are known for, after all, and particularly in "trail-rated" Trailhawk trim, the Cherokee can take on dirt and rocks better than any other rival crossover. But most shoppers are looking for pavement-based performance in this class, and fortunately the Cherokee succeeds here as well. With a supple suspension and a strong V6 engine option, plus an excellent 8.4-inch touchscreen inside, the 2017 Cherokee is equally prepared for the daily grind.

We're less bullish on the Cherokee's standard four-cylinder engine, which suffers from lackluster acceleration and a nine-speed automatic transmission that doesn't shift as crisply as we'd like. But if that underhood tandem doesn't bother you too much, there's not much else about the Cherokee that merits disapproval. To some, the sleek styling might seem un-Jeep-like, but we'd counter that it shows the company's forward-looking perspective. More objectively, the Jeep does come up a bit short in regard to cargo space, as some rivals allow you to shove more stuff in back, which can enable bigger Costco runs or less cramped road trips.

If you're not totally sold on the Cherokee, you picked a great segment for cross-shopping. The usual suspects include the tried-and-true Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4, with the latter also available in exceptionally fuel-efficient Hybrid form. For more driving excitement, we'd steer you toward the athletic yet wholly practical Mazda CX-5. Meanwhile, the Subaru Forester delivers welcome doses of style and value. But with its blend of off-road skills and on-road refinement, the 2017 Jeep Cherokee continues to make a strong case for itself.

Standard safety equipment on all 2017 Jeep Cherokees includes antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front- and rear-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags and front knee airbags. A rearview camera is optional on the Sport trim level and standard on all other models. Cherokees with the 8.4-inch touchscreen come with a Uconnect Access system that includes automatic crash notification, on-demand roadside assistance, remote door unlocking and stolen vehicle assistance.

Trailhawk, Limited and Overland models can also be equipped with an optional package that adds adaptive cruise control, a forward collision warning and mitigation system (with automatic brake intervention in potential collision situations), a lane departure warning system, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

In Edmunds brake testing, a Cherokee Trailhawk came to a stop from 60 mph in 131 feet. The all-terrain tires contributed to that lengthy stop, but it's still one of the longest distances we've recorded in this segment. A Cherokee Limited with more common all-season tires and 4WD came to a stop in 122 feet, which is about average.

In government crash tests, the Cherokee received an overall rating of four out of five possible stars, with four stars for total front-impact protection and five stars for total side-impact protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Cherokee the best possible rating of Good in the moderate-overlap front-impact, side-crash and roof strength crash tests. The Cherokee's seat and head restraint design was also rated Good for whiplash protection in rear impacts, but the Jeep received a Marginal rating (second worst of four) in the small-overlap front-impact test. The IIHS also tested the Cherokee's optional forward collision mitigation system and gave a high score of Superior.

Trim levels & features

The 2017 Jeep Cherokee is a five-passenger crossover SUV offered in five main trim levels: Sport, Latitude, Trailhawk, Limited and Overland.

Standard equipment on the Sport includes 17-inch steel wheels, LED running lights and taillights, remote keyless entry, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, cruise control, height-adjustable front seats, sliding and reclining rear seats with 60/40-split folding seatbacks, Bluetooth, a USB charge-only port and a six-speaker audio system with a 5-inch touchscreen interface, an auxiliary audio input and an SD card reader.

The Latitude adds alloy wheels, roof rails, foglights, automatic xenon headlights, a rearview camera, body-colored door handles and mirrors, tinted glass, LED interior lighting, upgraded cloth upholstery, a folding front passenger seat with a storage compartment inside the seat cushion, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with built-in audio controls and a 115-volt outlet.

The off-road-themed Trailhawk comes with an advanced four-wheel-drive system (Active Drive II) and also boasts slightly wider 17-inch wheels and all-terrain tires, increased ground clearance, off-road-oriented suspension tuning, a locking rear differential, hill ascent and descent control, skid plates, tow hooks, unique exterior trim, cloth and leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped shift knob, a larger driver information display with color graphics, satellite radio and Jeep's 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen interface with a USB audio interface, Siri Eyes Free and smartphone-app integration.

The Limited sheds the Trailhawk's off-road hardware, but it includes largely the same standard convenience items plus 18-inch alloy wheels, remote ignition, a wiper de-icer, upgraded power-folding side mirrors (with heating, integrated turn signals and puddle lamps), keyless entry and ignition, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, an eight-way power driver seat (with four-way power lumbar) and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

The range-topping Overland includes its own 18-inch wheels, rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-path alert, a power liftgate, unique body-color exterior trim, cornering lights, sound-deadening windshield and front windows, driver memory functions, a leather-wrapped instrument panel, wood steering-wheel inserts, upgraded leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, a power-adjustable passenger seat (with four-way power lumbar), a nine-speaker audio system with a subwoofer, a navigation system and HD radio.

Some of the higher trims' features are available on lower trims via optional packages or as standalone extras. Additional options, depending on trim, include various appearance packages (including a 75th Anniversary package that comes with bronze exterior trim and "tangerine" interior accents), a towing package, a dual-pane sunroof (power front, fixed rear) and a safety-oriented Technology package (automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning and lane-keeping assist, automatic wipers and — if not already specified — the upgraded exterior mirrors, rear parking sensors and an automated parking system).

Standard on most 2017 Jeep Cherokees is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 184 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. Optional on most is a 3.2-liter V6 that makes 271 hp and 239 lb-ft of torque. A nine-speed automatic transmission is standard with both engines.

You have your choice of front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive with either engine, but Trailhawk models are 4WD-only. Jeep offers two 4WD systems. Standard on four-wheel-drive Sport, Latitude and Limited models is the light-duty Active Drive I 4WD system; it requires no input from the driver, though it does come with a Selec-Terrain dial that features different terrain modes. Standard on the Trailhawk and Overland and optional on the Limited is the more rugged Active Drive II system, which features low-range gearing and a locking rear differential along with an additional Rock mode for the Selec-Terrain dial.

The optional towing package gives V6 models a healthy 4,500-pound towing capacity.

When equipped with front-wheel drive and the four-cylinder engine, the Cherokee is EPA-rated at 25 mpg combined (21 city/30 highway). Surprisingly, the V6 and front-wheel drive is nearly as good with 24 mpg combined (21 city/29 highway). EPA-estimated fuel economy for 4WD Cherokees is slightly less than above, with the Trailhawk bringing up the rear at 22 mpg combined with the four-cylinder and 21 mpg combined with the V6.

In Edmunds testing, a V6-powered Cherokee Limited with Active Drive I went from zero to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds, a satisfactory showing for a small crossover with an upgraded engine. A Cherokee Trailhawk, also with the V6, fell back to 8.0 seconds.

Driving

The 2017 Cherokee is on the heavy side for this segment, which is why the four-cylinder engine can feel sluggish despite its competitive horsepower and torque. This engine also has a more raucous sound than some other four-cylinders in this class. We really like the V6 engine, though; it gives the 2017 Cherokee a relaxed, refined demeanor not found in the typical four-cylinder SUV. There's plenty of power, too, and the nine-speed automatic feels more at home in this pairing. With either engine, though, that transmission can be a bit reluctant to downshift once you're cruising on the highway.

The Cherokee is exceptionally quiet for this class at elevated speeds, and over rough city streets it provides about as cushy a ride as you'll find for the money. The downside is that the Jeep feels rather ponderous when going around turns. Its steering is precise, but there's nothing like the sportiness that segment standouts such as the Ford Escape and Mazda CX-5 bring to the table. All Cherokees have solid off-road potential if one of the 4WD systems is specified, but it's the Cherokee Trailhawk that stands out for its trail-conquering ability. If you have the inclination, the Trailhawk can take on some pretty serious terrain, thanks to its low-range gearing, rear locking differential and other exclusive off-roading equipment.

Interior

The cabin of the 2017 Jeep Cherokee has a quality look and feel, especially on upper trim levels. The available Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen isn't the freshest system in this class anymore, but it's still wholly satisfying thanks to easy-to-navigate menus, large virtual buttons and an accompanying knob that makes whipping through long lists a breeze. It's certainly worth the extra cost if you can make the jump out of the Sport.

Passenger quarters are generous in the 2017 Jeep Cherokee. It's easy to get comfortable in the available power driver seat, which offers ample adjustability, but we also like that even the manual front seats come standard with height adjustments for both driver and passenger. The Cherokee also features one of the better backseats in the compact crossover class. Not only does it recline, but it also provides for fore-and-aft adjustment, and the high-mounted bench supports adults' thighs without pushing their heads into the rafters.

Alas, cargo capacity is unimpressive. There's just 24.6 cubic feet of space behind the second row and 54.9 cubic feet with the rear seatbacks folded down. Both figures are 5 to 15 cubic feet less than what most other small crossover SUVs offer; indeed, they're closer to the norm in the smaller subcompact crossover class. Another drawback is the lack of useful storage space up front for personal effects.

Cherokee tops Honda CRV ..USA,USA, USA
Edgar,02/06/2017
I just purchased a 2017 Cherokee Latitude a few weeks ago, and continue to be impressed. To put it in perspective, I also have a 2016 Honda CRV and can make a good comparison now. I had shopped both cars and negotiated rock bottom deals on both. The sticker price of the Jeep was $36K but with big rebates to be had the price of both cars ended up within $100 of each other, or $27.5K out the door going with their mid level trim; Latitude for the Jeep and EX for the CRV. But compare what I got in terms of value: Power: the 6 cylinder engine of the Jeep is is much more powerful and smooth than the 4 cylinder in the Honda..a 90 hp difference..advantage Jeep. Convenience: The Jeep has Power tailgate, Much better/larger LCD Infotainment System, Remote Start, More Adjustable and comfortable power front seats Auto Mirror, integrated 911 system etc not on the CRV. The CRV came with heated seats and the blind spot camera, both nice things but not of the value of the Jeep. Utility: The Jeep came with Roof Rails, Tow package (can tow 4500 lbs!), and full size spare. Honda did not include roof rails at that price point or tow hitch, and can tow only 1500 lbs if so configured. Advantage Jeep. Design: The Jeep has a unique outdoorsey presence about it, with off color stitching. The Honda is a good design, but more boring. The Jeep has a full panoramic sunroof, while the Honda just has a small standard one. 4WD: The Jeep has adjustable settings of the drive system, not to mention higher ground clearance and approach angles. While not a Trailhawk, the Jeep Latitude wins vs the CRV re offroad capabilities. Ride Quality: This is a big factor.:The Jeep is as smooth as can be; The Honda is great compared to other small SUV's and has an impressive CVT transmission but compared to the Jeep ride quality is not as good and does not feel as substantial. Especially on long highway trips, the Jeep with the V6 is just a better place to be and feels like a luxury car. In fairness the CRV scores some points with more cargo room, better mpg, and the blind spot camera. So in terms of Value, the Jeep is the clear winner and would even be worth the sticker price. In terms of reliability, I guess that is TBD, but the Jeep seems impressively solid and unstressed. If that is a big concern, Jeep offers an insane Lifetime/Unlimited Miles Warranty Upgrade for $2-3K. Being an import car buyer since 1982 ( my CRV was assembled in Canada), I am now changing my perception. Honda and CRV are always rated at the top of pack, and there are some outdated perceptions out there that imports are somehow better. Jeep Cherokee has one of the highest US contents of any vehicle. It is great to support fellow hard working Americans who make a product that is world class. USA, USA, USA!!
6 cyl Latatude
Tim,05/25/2017
Having done some research prior to making this purchase, I didn't waste my time even looking at the 4 cylinder model. The 3.2 6 cylinder does a very nice job with excellent acceleration and a very smooth feel. It is a bit hesitant to down shift in response to increased throttle; if you want the sportier feel you can set the 4 wheel drive to "sport" mode and the transmission response feels much quicker. The sport mode does cause a hit to fuel economy so there is a trade off. I've been getting right around 25 mpg for mostly highway (probably 70/30) driving in the standard setting which I feel is quite reasonable. As I'm older (65) the ability to easily get in and out of the car was important to me and as one would expect with an SUV, it is quite comfortable to enter. The seats are comfortable as well and the power adjustment along with adjustable steering column provides for very comfortable seating. That being said, leather would have been a nice option. Of the other vehicles I looked at the Chevy Equinox came closest. The Jeep won out with a more substantial feel, was better equipped for the price, and the jeep dealer was much more willing to discount the price; the discount for the Jeep was about $4500 while the Chevy dealer seemed to hit a hard stop at about $2300. I'm sure there are other small SUVs that might be better choices depending on the buyers requirements, but given my need for towing capability as well as basic transportation, the Jeep really seemed the right choice and after 2 months I've found no reason to believe otherwise. As things are right now, I'd make the same buying decision and would recommend the Cherokee to family or friends. Up date at 8 months and 6000 miles. The gas mileage has settled in to about 23 mpg as I've stopped trying to keep it up and become a bit more heavy footed. Still very happy with the car. It has been completely trouble free to this point (as would be expected for a new car in this day and age). I've had reason to use the heated seats and, unlike other cars I've owned, the heated seat can be set to two levels and the lower is quite comfortable with the high setting being a bit on the overkill side. The heated steering wheel, while not dual level causes a temperature rise that is quite comfortable. The performance continues to impress.
it's a JEEP with luxury and sophistication !
Mike,05/17/2017
it's a great vehicle over all ! worth the money, but make sure you seriously consider the V-6 ! The 4 cylinder lacks bite, and will leave you disappointed. I have the 2.4 cylinder right now and am truly wishing I had the six as the four seriously is sluggish and unresponsive. Not sure what JEEP was thinking putting this engine in a Cherokee...I will say If acceleration isn't that important to you then the four will be fine for you. It does it's job, but for me not impressed ! I enjoy driving it as it's seats are comfortable and the ride is smooth for the most part. Have 10,000 miles on mine now and have no problems and changed the oil once. The 8.4 Connect is user friendly and easy to use, the auto climate dual climate control is nice and works well and maintains a comfortable cabin. Gas mileage is average for a SUV I guess, but not bad. I do love my JEPP and am not disappointed in it thus far. But, because of the engine I am trying to turn it in early as it is a lease to upgrade to a Trailhawk with the V-6 or get in a grand Cherokee if possible ! Stay away from the 4 cylinder if possible.....other then that I am not disappointed in the JEEP Cherokee, great SUV and is stylish, comfortable, and you will have a sense of pride driving your JEEP around !
Impressive features and handling
A. Polk,07/30/2017
After test driving a 2017 Jeep Cherokee Latitude 4x4 with a 3.2L V6 9-speed automatic last month, I purchased one this past week to celebrate my 50th birthday. After buying my new Jeep I promptly drove it home from a dealer 250 miles away, and left on a 600 mile round trip vacation with my family. I was thrilled to get 30 mpg when most of my driving was freeway at 70-75 mph, and happy with the 25 or so in town. This was better than the 4-cylinder 2014 Toyota RAV4 AWD I recently sold, and the Jeep is much more comfortable! I chose the Jeep because I could get a tow package capable of towing 4500 pounds with the V6 engine, and still get an amazingly luxurious smaller SUV for a great price. I actually paid $10,300 under MSRP for a Latitude with the Comfort and Convenience (power liftgate), Cold Weather Package (heated seats and steering wheel), Comfort and Audio (power seat with lumbar adjustment and a 9 speaker audio system with a subwoofer), tonneau cargo cover, the V6 3.2L engine upgrade, and the tow package. I didn't want leather (the True North Edition has it) and found it was very tough to find a Latitude with both the tow and the power liftgate, so when I found one I was very interested. The dealer discount, factory incentives, Chrysler financing incentive and a USAA bonus incentive gave me a great deal and I'm very happy with my first-ever new vehicle and Jeep product! It's comfortable to drive, handles well, has a quiet cabin, lots of cubbies to store things (my favorite is hidden under the passenger seat), feels luxurious inside and out, and yet still has lots of off-road 'truck' capabilities at the right price. I've owned SUVs by GMC and Toyota, but this Made in the USA (mine was made in Illinois) vehicle is much more impressive in terms of performance and style. I look forward to putting my roof rack and rear cargo basket on it and seeing where the roads (paved and dirt) take me!

2017 Jeep Cherokee video

TRAVIS LANGNESS: I'm Travis Langness, Edmunds editor, with an Expert Rundown of the 2017 Jeep Cherokee. For 2017, the Cherokee gets a couple of minor equipment revisions, like HID headlights on a few trim levels. But pretty much, it's the same as it's been for the last few years. One of the things we're not a big fan of with the Cherokee is the base four-cylinder engine. We definitely recommend upgrading to the V6. It's got more power. And despite the kind of clunky nine-speed automatic transmission, it's the engine we'd go with. A cool available trim level for the Cherokee is the Trailhawk. Jeep offers it on several different vehicles. And it provides you with a lot of off-road equipment, different tires, and a cool look on the outside as well. Aside from the Trailhawk, the standard Jeep Cherokee has good smooth suspension, it's quiet on the highway, and an excellent tech interface. The 8.4-inch Uconnect screen is one of our favorites in the class. Even though it's not one of the newest, it's one of the easier to use. When you connect to your device, it loads really quickly. The touchscreen is super responsive. It's definitely one of our favorites. Unfortunately, there's less cargo room in the Cherokee than most of its competitors, anywhere from five to 15 cubic feet of difference when you fall down the rear seats, which is quite a bit in this class. The bottom line is the Cherokee's a comfortable, quiet SUV with higher than average off-road capability. But competitors like the Honda CR-V and the Mazda CX-5 are going to be a bit better to drive and have more space. For more reviews of key competitors, go to YouTube and check out more of the Edmunds Expert Rundowns.

More about the 2017 Jeep Cherokee

Being tops in off-road capability is as much a part of Jeep's DNA as speed is to Usain Bolt's genetics. And the 2017 Jeep Cherokee lives up to that reputation, especially in the "trail-rated" Trailhawk trim level. Indeed, in that guise a Cherokee can tackle off-road terrain that would make drivers of less off-road ready compact crossovers think twice before venturing forth. Yet for the majority of compact SUV shoppers who care more about on-pavement performance, the Cherokee still has strong appeal. Some of its more notable features include a supple ride, a muscular V6 option, roomy front and rear seating, and a well-trimmed interior with an available user-friendly infotainment system that boasts a generously-sized 8.4-inch touchscreen.

Perhaps less laudable for some are the 2017 Jeep Cherokee's love-it-or-hate-it styling and the four-cylinder engine with nine-speed automatic transmission. The former is quite a departure for Jeep, whose styling identity is typically more macho and square-jawed, while the latter draws criticism for its somewhat lackluster performance and unrefined nature. Furthermore, the cargo space is a bit lacking compared to some rivals, something to keep in mind for those who frequently nab big hauls from Costco or who tend to take a lot of stuff on road trips.

Thrifty buyers who don't plan on hauling or towing heavier loads may be satisfied with the four-cylinder engine, as it delivers fairly respectable fuel mileage. However, those who like more spirited performance and/or plan on towing should strongly consider the V6, as it is considerably more powerful and responsive. Other notable benefits of the V6 are smoother and quieter operation and minimal fuel economy penalty. Buyers of the 2017 Jeep Cherokee have a choice of front- or four-wheel drive (4WD), and EPA fuel economy estimates range from 21 mpg combined (18 city/24 highway) for a 4WD V6 Cherokee to 25 mpg combined (21 city/30 highway) for a front-wheel-drive Cherokee with the four-cylinder engine.

The 2017 Jeep Cherokee is offered in a quintet of trim levels that range from the base Sport to the loaded Overland, with the latter boasting such niceties as a navigation system and power liftgate. Between those two are the well-equipped Latitude, aforementioned Trailhawk and luxurious Limited.

With its solid on-road manners, off-road capability, welcoming cabin and varied range of trim levels, the 2017 Jeep Cherokee makes a strong case for itself among the many available crossover SUVs. Be sure to use Edmunds to help you find the Cherokee that checks all your boxes.

Should I lease or buy a 2017 Jeep Cherokee?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
