Kelley Blue Book Review:


Although the 2017 Jeep Cherokee is sized and priced like the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape and Nissan Rogue, it is so much more than just a compact SUV with all-wheel-drive abilities. In fact, the Cherokee line is all-inclusive, running the gamut from basic transportation to rugged off-road-ready SUV. In between are a number of models, some showing a more sporting side to compete with the SUVs like the Mazda CX-5, while others offer luxury on par with the Lexus RX, Land Rover Evoque and BMW X3. Jeep’s Cherokee compact SUV suffers from some shortcomings, however, like its underpowered 4-cylinder engine and, on upper trims, a rather exorbitant price tag. An available V6 solves the power problem, plus provides an impressive 4,500-pound tow rating.
