Review 

The 2021 Jeep Cherokee is in the lowest half of our compact SUV category, despite its great off-road ability. It suffers from mixed road performance, an excellent cabin material, and a poor reliability rating.  Although the current Jeep Cherokee does not share the original boxy, except its name, it still occupies a particular place in the stable SUVs of the off-road brand. And while the Wrangler and even the Grand Cherokee do not reach a full level of capacity, the Cherokee provides enough off-road equipment to differentiate it from a segment full of car crossover.

For the model year 2019, the Cherokee underwent an important redesign, and there are few changes for 2021. Both Cherokees now have blind-spot tracking and rear path detection systems, full-speed front collision warning, lane departure warning with lane assist, rain-sensing wipers, etc. The Cherokee is sold at five levels: Latitude, Latitude Plus, Latitude Lux, Trailhawk, and Limited, in 2021. The Latitude Lux edition of the 80th Anniversary is a 19-inch Granite Crystal wheel, an interior with tungsten light stitching and anodized gunmetal accents.

The Cherokee is not much larger than the cheaper Compass, which it shares on the showroom floor. Even so, Jeep offers a Cherokee with a V6 engine, unlike any other crossover. Cherokee’s optional 3.2-liter six-cylinder will tow up to 4,500 pounds with its 271 horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque. This is far better than other rivals can manage.

What is the seating capacity?

Five people sit in this crossover. In front, accommodation is mostly fine, but you can find a good driving position with difficulty. Average adults in the second row of the Cherokee would have a good deal of space. However, a little more head and legroom could be desired.

How many Child Car Seats are there?

The back outboard seats are fitted with two full sets of LATCH connectors. The middle seat is connected with a tether anchor, and the lower anchor can be pulled out of the driver’s seat. It is really quick to use this LATCH system.

Interior Quality

While the Cherokee has some nice soft-touch surfaces and a selection of higher quality materials, significantly harder surfaces hold it a step back from the leaders.

Cargo Space

The 2021 Cherokee load area behind its rear seats is about 25.8 cubic feet. You will reduce the adjustable cargo floor to 27.6 cubic feet.

Fold the second row to open up a room of 54.7 cubic feet that is one of the lowest maximum volumes in the class.
