2017 Jeep Cherokee Expert Rundown

Looking for a great SUV with comfortable ride quality and appealing features? The 2017 Jeep Cherokee might be a good match. Here's a quick rundown of what we like, what we don't and the bottom line from the Edmunds editors.

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.
