When we first laid eyes on the new Cherokee at an invitation-only preview, we were uncertain how the traditionally conventional and conservative crossover market would receive the unusually styled new Jeep. But the marketplace has spoken, and there’s no question about it: The new Cherokee is a major hit with customers. In just a little more than a year since its introduction, the Cherokee has gone on to become the brand’s best-selling model. Spend a little time behind the wheel, and it’s easy to see why. The new Cherokee has a refined, comfortable interior, with a great, intuitive Uconnect touchscreen interface. Performance from the TigerShark 2.4L I-4 engine is adequate, but the Cherokee really comes alive with the optional 3.2L Pentastar V-6—an increasingly rare option in the I-4–dominated crossover segment. The Cherokee is also the only crossover available with low-range four-wheel drive, a distinction that allows the Trailhawk model to legitimately wear the “Trail Rated” badge. The only major flaw with the Cherokee is its nine-speed automatic transmission; Jeep has struggled with perfecting its calibration since launch. But that alone isn’t enough to detract from the Cherokee’s otherwise excellent overall package. If you’re looking for a crossover with unique style and real off-road ability, the Cherokee is it.
