The Jeep Cherokee is a line of vehicles sold by Jeep under various vehicle classes. Originally sold as a variant of the popular Jeep Wagoneer, the Cherokee has evolved from a full-size SUV to one of the first compact SUVs and eventually into its current incarnation as a crossover SUV. The nameplate has been in continuous use in some form since 1974 and also spawned Jeep's most successful vehicle, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which was originally slated to be part of the Cherokee's lineup. The vehicle is named after the Cherokee tribe of Native Americans.

For the fifth generation, the Cherokee nameplate returned to North America as the vehicle was converted to a crossover and grew to midsize in order to make room for the Jeep Renegade below the Cherokee and Compass. It was introduced for the 2014 model year at the 2013 New York International Auto Show and the sales started in November 2013.[14][17][17] The Cherokee is the first Jeep vehicle to be built on the Fiat Compact/Compact U.S. Wide platform, co-developed by Chrysler and Fiat.[16] The Jeep Cherokee is built at Toledo North Assembly Plant in Toledo, Ohio.[18]

The Cherokee has a highway fuel economy rating of 31 miles per U.S. gallon (7.6 L/100 km; 37 mpg‑imp);[16] and a 45% better fuel economy rating than the Liberty/Cherokee it replaced.[17][18]

Despite its controversial front end styling[17][18] , the fifth-generation Cherokee would become such a sales success that FCA discontinued the slow-selling Dodge Dart and Chrysler 200 (both mechanically similar to the Cherokee) in order to increase production capacity for the Cherokee to meet demand. For 2018 the front end is to be updated to a more conservative style.

      I have the 2016 limited. I love my Jeep. I have the V6, it has lots of power. I also have the panoramic sunroof and I think it is very cool. I guess to each's own.

      Dude, all these things are the smallest things that only bother you. Cars have a overhang, and you just have to deal with brushing against the bumper, it's the same worth every car. I love my 2017 Cherrokee, and always will.

      You'll be happy with the 2019's as they have redesigned the front yet again to the more traditional Jeep look. Thanks for the look see.

      I don't know if it's my OCD or not. But the fact that I cant physically turn my stereo off on my 2016 drives me nuts. You can mute it. But not turn it off. Who designed that winner?

      A white one with black rims and tinted windows would be nice. You have to add shit to this car to make it look nice. Looks ugly just basic

      Mopar accessories still only offers the worst cargo privacy cover with its HUGE hole and is still not mountable flush to the rear seats.

      Good review Peter! I like that the rear bumper sticks out a bit-when backing up better to hit that than do damage to the metal body.

      Peter, that "accent" light on top is great if you live in an area that is full of wildlife. It helps tremendously for spotting dear etc. while driving at night.

      The new body design is actually refreshing , certainly a departure from the O.G. jeep design, but I think it was a great choice....your nuts, but to each his own!

      I have a 2015 Cherokee Limited with even fewer features and I still like it a lot. The Chrysler uConnect touchscreen is the best touchscreen you can get on the market. I do have the RA4 option which gives you the nav, the HD radio, and the Sirius travel link. The voice control button does a bit more than you mentioned. For example I can control the stereo completely I can even tell the car what I want the inside temperature to be. For the exeption of Bluetooth audio, I can control the audio completely. And I have the most recent update where you can use Siri for the iPhone by holding down the voice button.

      Jonathan Moosey yes it should be the V6 moves effortlessly and well equipped one thing i was not happy about was the front seat, its a 6 way manual its comfortable and heated but not a automatic adjustable seat with lumbar support ... dealer option is 700 to replace smh so that was only peeve but the rest of the car is perfect to me

      This poor vehicle gets beat up like an unwanted street orphan..I own the 2017 jeep cherokee latitude 4 cyl. and I am quite
      happy with my purchase so far...I was concerned about the 9 speed automatic transmission.. but so far so good..
      I usually buy toyota and honda vehicles ..but I liked everything about the cherokee so I purchased it.Hope it will give me many years of trouble-free driving pleasure.The jeep people seem to want to keep the customer happy with their purchase.
