Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Jeep Cherokee still antes up considerable trail-riding talent, but other crossover SUVs do a better job of daily driving.
The name is one of the oldest applied to a modern-day SUV, but the 2017 Jeep Cherokee is no Conestoga wagon. It's a thoroughly modern family wagon, recast from its hardcore sport-utility roots into something much broader, more capable in all sorts of conditions.

Pros
Family-sized interior (albeit with no third row)
Daring exterior
Front seat comfort
Quick enough with the base engine
Strong active-safety set

Cons
Exterior styling doesn't feel fully committed-to
Numb steering
Gas mileage okay but not excellent
Transmission woes come and go

The 2017 Jeep Cherokee ranks 13 out of 18 Compact SUVs. The 2017 Jeep Cherokee combines an upscale and spacious cabin with good off-road capability. Although you can find a smoother ride and larger cabin in competitors like the Honda CR-V or Ford Escape, the Cherokee’s off-road capability means it strikes a pretty rare balance in this class.

Pros
Premium-quality cabin
Spacious and comfortable seating
Great off-road capability with 4WD option

Cons
Sluggish base engine
Below-average fuel economy
Small cargo space

By:

The 2017 Cherokee gets only minor equipment revisions, including standard xenon headlights on every trim but the base Sport. This is also the first full year for the top-of-the-line Overland trim that was introduced in mid-2016.

Pros
Available V6 engine provides smooth and assertive power
Absorbent suspension smooths out rough surfaces
Capable and user-friendly 8.4-inch touchscreen on many models
Trailhawk offers unique off-road capability for a small crossover.

Cons
Sluggish acceleration with four-cylinder engine
Less cargo capacity than other small crossovers.

The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a benchmark SUV; it's a luxury vehicle, a talented off-roader, a scalding-hot track runner, and a family wagon extraordinaire.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a great family vehicle—just one that's also potentially ready to go off-road, tow a trailer or, on occasion, do things that are more workhorse-like than you'd attempt in most other typical family crossovers.

Pros
Premium look and feel
Responsive 8-speed automatics
Ecodiesel's 30-mpg rating, 730-mile range
Easy-to-use infotainment
SRT is fit for track time

Cons
Quite pricey, to be without a luxury badge
Grille design still not in alignment
Hemi is too thirsty for what it provides
No rearview camera on base Laredo

The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee ranks 8 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee gives you the best of both worlds: a rough-and-ready off-road SUV with a handsome, refined interior and comfortable performance on pavement.

Pros
Excellent off-road capabilities
Powerful engine lineup
Upscale cabin
Intuitive infotainment system

Cons
Small cargo space

By: 
usnews.com

A Trailhawk model with extra off-road kit debuts for 2017, while the top-of-the-line Summit gets slightly revised styling and additional luxury-oriented interior garnishes. Newly available features include a self-parking system and lane departure warning. A rearview camera and rear parking sensors are now standard on every Grand Cherokee.

Pros
Appealing engines, including a thrifty diesel V6 and a brawny V8
Enough off-road ability to conquer practically any trail
Plush interior with plentiful luxury and technology
Impressive tow ratings for the class

Cons
Diesel engine is noisy at idle and low speeds
Ride quality may disappoint, even with air suspension
