Jeep Cherokee Review

The Jeep Cherokee sports the familiar rugged and squared off body that the model was known for back in the 90s. But beyond this off roader look is a vehicle providing comfort via luxuries such as heated leather seating. The latest Cherokee balances its hardcore ride performance with different features that will keep passengers comfortable even when driving through the most difficult terrains. Read on to know what else the Cherokee can provide in terms of ride, handling, and performance.

Pros

The latest engine found in the most recent Cherokee is an upgrade from the previous 2.8-litre turbodiesel unit. Now this engine offers more pulling power, while producing 177 bhp. Such capability matters when you need that added low down grunt as the car goes down along the road. The engine also manages to be quiet for the most part, and only tends to be noisy when going at higher revs. You can have a five-speed automatic with this unit, but the six-speed manual is offered as standard.

The latest Cherokee has also improved its performance both on and off the road. Body roll is kept at a minimum and there’s more feel to the steering. Driving and riding is also comfortable along motorways, as the soft suspension is able to absorb the impact from rough surfaces and potholes. As expected from a model of its size and structure, the Cherokee does not disappoint going through tough terrain such as mud, mountain, water, snow, etc. The hill-descent control feature slows down the car as it goes into steep downward slopes using anti-lock brakes.

The Cherokee’s sole trim level, the Limited, is generous with its standard equipment. From rear parking sensors, 19-inch alloy wheels, remote central locking, stability control, roof rails, leather seats, electrically adjustable and heated front seats, electric windows, rain sensitive wipers, to steering wheel audio controls, there’s clearly no other alternative trim since this one has it all.  

Boot space is generous and includes side panels that can keep your things secure.

There’s even a 10cm deep waterproof storage bin under the lid and a reversible carpet found on the load floor. Folding the split rear seats and/or folding the passenger seats forward can make the boot space even larger to fit lengthier items.

Cons

Comfort isn’t sustained throughout all of the Cherokee’s features. Body control is not enough especially for anyone seated at the back. Thankfully the vehicle is able to provide an overall comfortable ride for long journeys along motorways. Although the engine keeps quiet at cruising speeds, wind noise can be heard when going into higher velocities. In terms of space, there’s enough head room at the back and the leather seats make up for any lack of comfort on certain rides.

Although the latest Cherokee has upgraded its interior design to a two-tone colour scheme, the finish could still use more room for improvement. The steering wheel also lacks reach adjustment, a feature usually found in such large cars. Thankfully controls on the dashboard are marked clearly and easy to operate for daily functions.

A History of the Jeep Cherokee

 

The first Jeep Cherokee was the SJ series produced from 1974 to 1983 by the American Motors Company (AMC) in the United States. The Cherokee was developed and based on the Jeep Wagoneer that produced a few years earlier around 1963.

It was marketed as a sports vehicle wherein the first model had a two-door variant. True to how its powerful feature and how it was produced, the Cherokee sets the bar for modern sports utility vehicle (SUV). Over the years, the vehicle has undergone models such as the XJ, KL the Jeep Grand Cherokee that also has various models, and the Jeep Liberty.  

Automobile Magazine has chosen the XJ model as one of the greatest cars of all time. The Jeep Cherokee KL model is the latest model to hit the market. It will replace the Jeep Liberty model that reigned between 2002 to 2013.

 The Cherokee is often compared with  the Isuzu Trooper or the Ford Explorer XLT when it comes to the  size of the cargo area. When it comes to hitting the rough road, it is considered to be a champion. As one of the premier sports utility vehicle, the Cherokee will continue to be the recognized as a leader.
