The front end splits its headlamps and underplays the grille-the one design detail that connotes Jeep no matter where it's seen, around the world.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
Breaking up its LED running-light eyebrows from the headlamps sounds like a clever idea for cool looks after dark, but in daylight it delivers an Aztek-like effect-a tiered face that looks like it's always being woken up too early.

Reviews Word on the street for the Jeep Cherokee


9.0
Shifts weren't whip fast in the four-cylinder model, and with the V-6 I wasn't able to shift among the higher gears manually.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Powertrain

We've driven all the drivetrain combinations offered with the new Cherokee, and admire the performance range that can be dialed into its lunar-rover body with the right ticks on the options box.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
The nine-speed transmission felt relatively ordinary, certainly not extraordinary versus a continuously variable transmission or more common six-speed automatic.

The choice of engines doesn't have to be a vexing one: for a change at this end of the Chrysler lineup, they're both pretty good.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)

Engine

While several models in this class have gone all-four-cylinder, the Cherokee offers a choice between a four-cylinder or a V-6.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
It's also, easily, the best-sounding Chrysler four-cylinder in a long time.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
So while the four-cylinder engine's specs compare favorably with smaller crossovers, it is definitely at a disadvantage due to its weight.

Kind

crawl ratio of 56:1 with the four-cylinder, which Jeep says is 90 percent better than that of the Liberty.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
There aren't many V-6 options in the class, and the Cherokee surpasses the Chevy with a more fun-to-drive experience; it's neck and neck with the Escape's sprightly, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder.
by cars.com (Aug, 2013)
All models with 4WD have the Selec-Terrain system, with separate ’smart’ modes for Snow, Sport, Sand/Mud, and Rock, and in low-range models with four-cylinder engines, its crawl ratio is an astonishingly good 56:1, which Jeep says is 90 percent better than that of the Liberty.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)

Handling

The Cherokee's ride and handling are a pleasant surprise.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
But they're good derivatives-even the Dart doesn't have as much of the nice stuff that sits on the Cherokee's stitched dash cap, the console cover, or even its steering wheel.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
That starts with its flavor of electric power steering: it has a dual-pinion rack that delivers no feedback and somewhat heavy weighting, but good accuracy despite its off-road intentions and all-season tires.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)

Drivetrain type

The 2014 Cherokee comes relatively well-equipped at a starting price of $23,990, including destination, for the 4x2 and $25,990 for the 4x4.
by cars.com (Aug, 2013)
All Cherokees with four-wheel drive have Selec-Terrain, which lets drivers choose the best mode from Sport, Snow, Sand/Mud, and Rock.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
The Cherokee's high cargo floor lets four-wheel-drive components ride beneath it, but it trims down on total cargo space.
