The Jeep Cherokee is an iconic off-road platform that can be seen on trails all over the United States, but the 2022 Cherokee ventures away from what it once was. The 2022 Cherokee has gone with the time of the midsize SUV, all while still being packed with desired features. We took a look at the top 5 features of the 2022 Jeep Cherokee.
5. Multiple Trim Levels
For 2022, the Jeep Cherokee lineup consists of four models that include the Cherokee X (4×4 only; late availability), Latitude LUX, Trailhawk (4×4 only), and the Limited (4×4 only). Each trim has unique features, but they are all available in Billet Silver, Bright White, Diamond Black, Crystal, Granite Crystal, Hydro Blue, Slate Blue, Sting-Gray, and Velvet Red along with a Black or Black / Ski Gray interior.
4. New Trim For 2022
New to the Cherokee lineup in 2002 is the all-new Cherokee X trim. This trim pairs rugged off-road Jeep brand styling cues with a distinguishable on-road front fascia and new graphics for a unique exterior appearance. Also included are upgraded cloth/vinyl seats with unique inserts, 1-inch lifted suspension and a standard 3.2-liter engine at a desirable price point.
3. Refined Front Design
The front of the 2022 Cherokee has been updated including the front fascia, hood, LED headlamps, daytime running lamps, and fog lamps. The aluminum hood evolves the Cherokee’s waterfall grille design to more closely align with the latest Jeep brand styling. Front bi-LED projector headlamps incorporate the signature Cherokee daytime running lamps.
2. Powerful Powertrain
With two available engine options, the 2022 Cherokee has something for everyone. There is a 2-liter I-4 turbocharged engine, which is one of the most technologically advanced engines in the automotive industry which optimizes premium performance and fuel economy up to 31 mpg with 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Also available is the 3.2-liter Pentastar V-6 engine that delivers up to 29 mpg highway with 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. Under the hood isn’t the only impressive feature, the standard nine-speed automatic transmission and industry-first rear-axle disconnect, results in reduced energy loss and improved fuel efficiency when 4×4 capability isn’t needed.
1. It’s Still A Jeep
The Jeep brand has history to it and the all-new 2022 Jeep Cherokee sticks to its roots. There are two available four-wheel-drive systems that feature Jeep Selec-Terrain traction control system with up to five customized modes (Auto, Snow, Sport, Sand/Mud and Rock) and up to a 51:1 crawl ratio for low-range traction.
