"Jeep Cherokee is absolutely packed with content that includes numerous industry and segment 'firsts' that directly translate to a tremendous value for consumers shopping in the mid-size SUV segment."
Select the Cherokee Latitude ($25,490) and this new SUV adds body-color side mirrors and door handles, chrome window and roof rail trim, dark-tinted rear privacy glass, fog lights, and 17-inch aluminum wheels. The Cherokee Latitude is also equipped with power side mirrors, power windows, air conditioning, leather-wrapped steering wheel, LED cabin lighting, 115-volt power outlet, and a fold-flat front passenger's seat with an in-seat storage bin.
The Cherokee Limited ($28,990) is equipped with 18-inch aluminum wheels, chrome exterior trim, automatic headlights, and heated side mirrors with turn signal indicators and puddle lamps. Inside, the Limited trim level gets dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, 8-way power driver's seat with 4-way lumbar adjustment, and Keyless Enter-N-Go passive entry with push-button starting.

People with serious off-roading intentions will want the new Cherokee Trailhawk model ($30,490), which is equipped with standard 4WD. Based on the Cherokee Latitude, the Trailhawk model receives significant mechanical, drivetrain, and suspension modifications designed to help the SUV withstand rugged terrain, as well as skid plates, all-terrain tires, full-size spare tire, and unique design elements that set this version apart from other Cherokees. Ground clearance measures 8.7 inches, and Jeep improves the Trailhawk's approach, departure, and breakover angles.

Depending on the trim level selected, the Cherokee can be optioned with a new 3.2-liter V-6 engine good for 271 horsepower, a premium sound system, dual-pane panoramic sunroof, navigation system, wireless phone charging pad, and trailer-towing equipment.
