2015 Jeep Cherokee review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2015 Jeep Cherokee?

The 2015 Jeep Cherokee is a five-seat compact SUV offered in four trim levels: Sport, Latitude, Limited and Trailhawk. Front-wheel drive is standard and can be upgraded to four-wheel drive on all but the Trailhawk, which has four-wheel drive standard. The Jeep Cherokee competes with other off-roaders like the Nissan Xterra and Toyota 4Runner, as well as the Chevrolet Equinox and Subaru Outback.

What's New on the 2015 Jeep Cherokee?

For 2015, Jeep Cherokees powered by the V-6 engine get stop-start technology for better fuel conservation. Trailhawks can be had with ventilated front seats, while Latitudes feature new cloth seating. The available collision warning system gets autonomous braking, and a cargo cover is offered as a stand-alone option.

How Does the 2015 Jeep Cherokee Compare to Other Compact SUVs?

The Jeep Cherokee's four-cylinder engine is on par with other small SUVs, but much like the Chevy Equinox, acceleration is hindered by weight. Off-roading enthusiasts might turn their noses up at the Cherokee in favor of the Wrangler, but the Trailhawk is a solid choice for adventurers wanting more oomph from their SUVs. Additionally, the Cherokee's interior is much more stylish than those of the Honda CR-V or Toyota RAV4, but it lacks their cargo space.

What Features in the 2015 Jeep Cherokee Are Most Important?

The 2015 Jeep Cherokee comes standard with front-wheel drive, a 184-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and a nine-speed automatic transmission. For more power, you can opt for an available 271-hp, 3.2-liter V-6. Three distinct four-wheel-drive systems are available.

Standard features include the familiar Jeep seven-slot grille, 17-inch steel wheels, high-mounted running lights atop the fenders, five-person seating, cloth upholstery and a 60/40-split folding backseat. Notable options include 18-inch aluminum wheels, underbody skid plates, fog lights, a panoramic moonroof, a power liftgate, heated side mirrors, a 7-inch screen in the instrument panel, an 8.4-inch touchscreen entertainment system, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a wireless charging pad and a self-parking system.

As required in all new vehicles from this model year, front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system are standard. Ten airbags are also included. You can equip the Jeep Cherokee with optional safety features like front and rear parking sensors, a backup camera, blind spot warning system with rear cross-path detection, lane departure warning and forward collision warning with autonomous braking.

Should I Buy the 2015 Jeep Cherokee?

From the front, the Jeep Cherokee appears bold and stylish, but not so much from the back. The interior lacks the cargo room offered by some competitors, which could be a problem if you don't pack light. One good reason to buy the Jeep Cherokee is its many impressive features, which include an 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, panoramic moonroof, self-parking system and collision mitigation system.

Comfortable, reliable good gas mileage.

I purchased this car new in 2015. I have enjoyed the quiet drive and the excellent radio. I have the Convenience package which has all the extra's that I like. The vehicle has been very reliable, fuel economy is OK in the city about 22, but on the highway with just me in the car I averaged over 30 MPG.


I was sold a lemon, it might be a recall!!!

I am paying $600. A month for a car that has giving me nothing but trouble, the worst part is that I purchased this vehicle a year ago and I already put in 1000 extra into this car and I have been calling San Marcos Dodge and nobody will help meI have CANCER and no AC to get to my Doctors appointments, when AC went out it smelled like burn and they also sold Mathis car with two tires that already had patches, I don’t need help leaving this word I think I’ve got that on my own…PLEASE HELP I AM DESPERATE!!!!


Great looking SUV

This is my second Jeep, my first was a 2008 2door Wrangler absolutely awesome. This 2015 Cherokee looks great inside and out. Great interior design, easy to navigate through your options while driving. The exterior design is as well done as the interior. Fuel economy is good, plenty of aftermarket accessories available. Love the modified Jeep grill, modern yet recognizable. I have been very happy with this Cherokee so far and don’t see that changing any time soon.
