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

By: 
usnews.com

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

By:

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
