Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee’s weak base engine power, below-average cargo volume, and low predicted reliability rating contribute to its place in the bottom half of our rankings. However, it does have some positives, such as a comfortable ride and admirable off-road abilities.

Pros
Comfortable, upscale cabin
Easy-to-use infotainment system
Remarkable off-road capabilities in this price range

Cons
Less cargo space than most compact SUVs
Underpowered base engine
Below-average fuel economy
Low predicted reliability rating

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee performs its crossover chores as asked, but loves the off-road tasks more.

Pros
Lovely cabin trim
Very good front seats
Trailhawk off-road skills
Lots of active-safety options
Good infotainment

Cons
Styling alternates from odd to derivative
Fuel economy is just okay
9-speed’s occasional hiccups
Interior space arrangement

Go with the Trailhawk if your budget allows. While it's more expensive than most of the other Cherokee trim levels, its exclusive feature set makes the most of the Cherokee's off-road abilities, and that's the main reason to buy a Cherokee instead of another crossover in the first place.

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