If you intend to buy the 2022 Jeep Cherokee, for experiencing its true potential and Jeep pedigree we recommend going for the Trailhawk trim without any doubt as it packs lots of 4x4 settings and features plus the optional and more powerful V6 engine. The 19-inch wheels will ensure a comfortable ride quality even over forgiving terrains. With a starting price of $38,000, the Cherokee Trailhawk is loaded with features and makes complete sense.

2022 Jeep Cherokee Engine and Performance

7.5/10

As you'd expect from a Jeep, the Cherokee drives with heftiness and solidity, amking it feel larger than its rivals - Car and Driver

The 2022 Jeep Cherokee is expected to retain its engine options. The base Laredo trim gets a solid 2.4-liter Inline-4 engine that outputs 180 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque. The Latitude Lux trim offers two engine options- a 2.0L Turbo Inline-4 that puts out 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque; The other engine is a 271 horsepower 3.2-liter naturally aspirated V6 which produces 239 lb-ft of torque. Both the Limited and Trailhawk trim will offer the V6 as standard under their hood. The base engine seems slightly underpowered as compared to the rivals. All the trims will offer a standard FWD and an optional 4WD system.

The engines will be mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission with Overdrive. Only the Trailhawk trim offers a standard 4WD system and up to 2,000 lbs of towing capacity which is the best in its class. The Jeep Cherokee has been one of the most capable SUVs in the segment both in terms of power and capabilities. 2.4L Inline-4 backed 2022 Cherokee can do the 0-60 MPH run in just 8.3 seconds whereas the quarter-mile takes 16.5 seconds. The available 271 hp V6 engine can do 0-60 MPH sprint in 6.8 seconds and the quarter-mile comes in 15.0 seconds.

Contrary to Jeep’s image, the 2022 Cherokee offers a supple ride quality without compromising the high-speed stability. The Cherokee offers decent off-roading but at the end of the day, it's more like a daily-driving car and thus drives like one. The braking is also decent and the 2021 Jeep Cherokee managed to stop from 60-0 mph in 128 feet. In terms of performance and capabilities, even the top brands couldn't match Jeep. The standard engine is good enough to compete with the rivals. Jeep goes all the way up to V6 engines if we talk about engine options whereas the rivals settle with their 4 cylinder motors.

2022 Jeep Cherokee Fuel Economy

7.0/10

For the 2022 model, the Jeep Cherokee will retain its powertrain, thus the fuel economy will remain similar to the previous year’s model. The base Inline-4 engine powered 2022 Cherokee will deliver 22 MPG in the city, 31 MPG on the highway, and 25 MPG combined. The Inline-4 engine will offer a lower 21 MPG in the city, 29 MPG on the highway, and 24 MPG combined. The V6 will deliver more or less similar MPG to the Inline-4 except it offers a lower 22 MPG combined economy. The massive 15.8-gallon fuel tank ensures that the Cherokee has a good enough 395 miles of combined mileage.

Opt for the 4WD Trailhawk model, and the 2022 Cherokee will deliver 18 and 24 MPG in the city and highway respectively, which is reasonable considering the off-road capabilities it puts on offer. As for the rivals, the Subaru Forester is the most fuel-efficient offering out of the rest, as it delivers a combined efficiency of 29 MPG, and it also comes with a segment-best 16.6-gallon fuel tank.

2022 Jeep Cherokee Interior

6.0/10

On the road, the Cherokee is comfortable thanks to its supportive seats and smooth ride - Motortrend

The Jeep Cherokee has been amazing since it arrived in terms of interior quality and space. The cabin is big enough for five people. The 2022 Cherokee will offer premium materials and better comfort levels than the outgoing model. You will also get the latest tech and entertainment features on the new Cherokee. With the 2022 Cherokee, we will get the dedicated Latitude LUX trim with a much more luxurious interior.

The interior space in the Jeep Cherokee is sufficient for all size adults. Compared to that among the rivals Subaru Forester offers the most spacious leg space in the front row of seats but gets mediocre rear-seat space. As for the rear seat space, the 2022 Honda CR-V is better among the rivals. Coming to the cargo space the Honda CR-V offers the most 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space, followed by the Subaru Forester with 31.1 cubic feet of cargo space.

2022 Jeep Cherokee Exterior

9.0/10

The second generation of the Jeep Cherokee has never been better. The upcoming model will offer better features and advanced tech. The upcoming model will retain its glory by slaying similar body lines yet slightly different from the previous generation. The spy shots say that the design is slightly sharpened with a sleeker grille, thinner LED headlamps, and new bumpers. However, the 2022 Cherokee will not be as boxy as its successor. The compact SUV platform is the most rugged and stylish in the whole segment. It gets a rigid structure that allows it to stay intact and deliver amazing capabilities both on the road and off the road.

The off-road capability will be the top priority of Jeep as the Cherokee is known for its massive ground clearance and the new one will walk on the same path. The adjustable suspension will enhance its capabilities in all types of challenging terrains. The leaked images show a wider body stance and better height. The 2020 Jeep Cherokee is rumored to get bigger wheels to become more capable. We have 18-inch standard and 19-inch optional alloy wheels as well.

2022 Jeep Cherokee Safety

8.0/10

The 2021 Jeep Cherokee used steel and magnesium to provide durability to the structure by keeping the weight on the lower side. The unibody structure comprises 60% high-strength steel that will keep it in good shape for longer. As it sits on the FCA Compact SUV platform, the Cherokee has rigid underpinnings. The safety features in the 2022 Cherokee vary according to the trims whereas the top trims offer the latest and most advanced safety tech. The 2022 Jeep Cherokee hasn’t been crash-tested so we will take the 2021 Cherokee’s data to give you an idea. The 2021 Cherokee was tested by the NHTSA where it scored overall four out of five-star ratings. However, the IIHS ratings tell another story as it scored an overall ‘Good’ rating in all the parameters and the front crash prevention is rated superior. The Cherokee will carry the same safety standards for 2022 MY.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control

  • Lane departure warning

2022 Jeep Cherokee vs 2022 Subaru Forester

The 2022 Jeep Cherokee will be a very unique offering in the segment. It offers a mix of both power and off-road capabilities with a hint of a modern daily-driven SUV. The Subaru Forester is a worthy rival with similar performance but better practicality and space. That said, with the Jeep Cherokee you get robust performance whereas the Forester is more of an outdoor touring vehicle.

2022 Jeep Cherokee vs 2022 Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V gives direct competition to Jeep Cherokee as it offers better performance and also outright practicality, fuel economy, and reliability. But when it comes to off-roading the Jeep Cherokee aces this test, which can’t be said about the Honda CR-V. Still, both the cars enjoy separate demand in the market as both of them are unique in their way. With the 2022 model, the Cherokee can now compete better against the feature-rich Honda CR-V. While the CR-V offers a great value for money, Cherokee has a huge line-up of capable trim levels and multiple engine options.

This nameplate has certainly survived for so long without losing its charm.
