The 2021 Jeep Cherokee prioritizes off-road capability beyond all else.

Pros
Excessive off-road talent
Refined turbo-4
Better looks than before
Good active safety features

Cons
Pricey compared to class
Poor gas mileage

Cramped interior

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2021, Jeep gives the Cherokee several newly standard active safety features. These include automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, and more. The lineup also benefits from reshuffled standard features. For instance, the base model adds heated exterior mirrors and one-touch up/down front side windows; the Trailhawk adds a heated steering wheel and front seats as well as remote start. There's also a new 80th Anniversary Edition that's based on the Latitude LUX trim level, so it inherits all the same standard features. Highlights include Granite Crystal 19-inch wheels, leather upholstery with contrast stitching, power-adjustable front seats, the larger 8.4-inch touchscreen, a panoramic sunroof, and more.

Pros
Tows more than its competition, multiple powertrain options, class-leading off-road capability.

Cons
Drives bigger than compact rivals, interior isn't exactly spacious, less cargo space than top competitors.
