Overview

Compact crossovers are all the rage these days, but most are only slightly more rugged than commuter cars. The Jeep Cherokee is a welcome exception, with a name built on its off-road abilities. It can also tow up to 4,500 pounds, which is top-of-class. The cargo area is small, and fuel economy is subpar, but the interior comes with many standard features. The Jeep Cherokee is for drivers who want a small SUV that's comfortable on- or off-road.

Pros

Better off-road capabilities than rivals; Superb 4,500-pound max towing capacity; Easy-to-use Uconnect infotainment system

Cons

Lacks the sporty handling of other crossovers; Fuel economy is below-average for the class; Cargo capacity could be better

  • What is MSRP?

    MSRP stands for Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price, sometimes also known as the sticker price. Because this price is only a suggestion, a dealer can choose to sell a vehicle above—or, more often, below—MSRP.

  • What is Market Average?

    Based on actual recent transactions other buyers have made, the Market Average shows you the average price others paid for vehicles similar to the one you want, while taking into account that most of these vehicles have different option combinations from the ones you specified.

  • Statewide, Regional, and National Data

    If there are insufficient transactions in your area, we calculate your Market Average by gathering statewide, regional, or national data. Because this data can come from a large geographical area it may not be as representative of your local market.

2021 Jeep Cherokee Model Description

What's New Once-optional driver safety aids now standard; Upper trim levels get several more features; 80th Anniversary trim celebrates its heritage

Drivers who want a vehicle they can comfortably drive on-road and off will appreciate the Jeep Cherokee's strengths. Unlike most crossovers, it comes with a four-wheel-drive system that has a low range for maximum traction. It also makes the Cherokee a good choice for those who live in environments that get a lot of snow. The Jeep's stout towing abilities make it a practical way to transport a small boat or RV. The interior space is adequate, and there are many standard tech features. Drivers have access to a suite of advanced safety aids that provide extra peace of mind. Cargo space isn't as good as rivals, nor is fuel economy, impacting the Cherokee's credentials as a daily driver. But overall, for drivers looking for something small and affordable that can handle dirt trails as well as stop-and-go traffic, the Cherokee could be right for them.

The Cherokee comes in eight trim levels: Latitude, Latitude Plus, Altitude, Latitude Lux, 80th Anniversary, Limited, Trailhawk, and High Altitude. The Latitude has a starting price of about $27,000. It features automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, cloth upholstery, rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlights, power heated mirrors, keyless entry, air conditioning, cruise control, a seven-inch infotainment display, and six speakers. For about $29,500, the Latitude Plus adds things like rear parking sensors, fog lights, heated front seats, a power driver's seat, remote engine start, keyless ignition, a heated leather steering wheel, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and satellite radio. The Altitude adds 18-inch gloss-black wheels, black exterior accents, and other sporty features for around $30,500. For about the same price, the Latitude Lux swaps out the sporty styling for leather upholstery and a power passenger's seat. New for 2021, the 80th Anniversary trim starts around $32,500. It gets unique 19-inch grey wheels, contrast-stitched leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen. The Limited retails for about $34,500 and comes with an alarm, front and rear parking sensors, memory side mirrors, a power liftgate, automatic parking assistance, driver's seat memory, dual-zone climate control, adaptive cruise control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a premium audio system. The Trailhawk is the most off-road capable Cherokee, and it starts around $36,000. It adds to the Latitude trim level, with a lifted suspension, a locking differential for extra grip in harsh environments, underbody protection, and all-terrain tires. It also comes with unique seats with Nappa leather bolsters and other exclusive interior accents. The top-of-the-line High Altitude, for $37,000, has all of the Limited's features, plus things like a turbocharged engine, navigation, heated and ventilated front seats, Nappa leather upholstery, and extra sound-deadening materials.

Drivers can select between three engines for their Cherokee. The base 2.4-liter four-cylinder makes 180 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. It's not very fast, but it works well enough for daily driving. The EPA estimates the front-wheel-drive variant should return 25 mpg combined. That's not a very high score for the compact crossover segment. Upper trims get a 3.2-liter V6, which has plenty of power and can tow more. It produces 271 horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy slips to just 23 mpg combined. The High Altitude trim gets a unique engine -- a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes about the same horsepower as the V6, but torque is now 295 pound-feet. It's plenty of pulling power for steep hills and dusty trails. Surprisingly, it offers the best fuel economy of the bunch, at 26 mpg overall. All new Cherokees have a nine-speed automatic transmission and a 15.8-gallon fuel tank.

The Cherokee's cabin is similar in style to the larger Grand Cherokee, though it does not feel quite as premium. But the driver layout is well-designed, and everything is easily accessible. Jeep's Uconnect infotainment system is straightforward, with intuitive menus, and Jeep includes a good seven-inch screen even in the base trim. Interior space is average for the class. There is good front headroom, with 39.4 inches of space, and the rear headroom is only slightly less at 38.5 inches. The rear legroom is amongst the best in its class, meaning backseat passengers will feel comfortable on long trips. Cargo capacity is where the Cherokee lags its competition. With just 25.8 cubic feet behind the back seat, the Cherokee's trunk is quite a bit smaller than other SUVs. The rear seat is foldable, and that improves cargo space, bringing it to 54.7 cubes.

People who viewed the 2021 Jeep Cherokee also considered

The Starting Market Average is a proprietary mathematical calculation based on actual recent transactions. It provides a statistically accurate understanding of what other buyers are paying for the least expensive configuration of this vehicle. Adjustments to the calculation beyond make, model, and trim are normalized based on detailed, anonymized transaction information. This accounts for the fact that most or all recently-sold vehicles included different option combinations. The data underlying the Starting Market Average calculation are filtered for extreme outliers and subjected to a weighted averaging process that considers factors such as the recency of transactions and the timing of data lags. In certain instances, the calculated result is adjusted to take account of abrupt changes in the market that may not yet be fully reflected by recent transaction prices. In all cases where the Starting Market Average is shown there is sufficient sample size and transaction detail to be statistically reliable.
