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.

Check recalls on 2015 Jeep Cherokee sport's transm

I've only had my Jeep Cherokee sport for 2 weeks now and for the most part, everything is great. I am a little concerned with the transmission however. I've noticed that when I barely tap the gas and then hit the break, The vehicle will jump forward. I've been lucky so far where nobody has been in front of me for me to hit them. The second time it happened I came very close to rear ending another vehicle


Cherokee capable

Overall very capable vehicle. 3.2L with 4wd/factory trailer tow. Silly things show up like the service 4wd light that comes/goes and radio/controller that resets after replacement. Solid car with a good pedigree.


A good 4WD for me!

I bought my 2015 Jeep Cherokee Latitude 4WD in January 2017 as a slightly water damaged vehicle with 18000 miles on it and have been pleasantly surprised at how reliable it's been! It's now at 66,000 miles and still working perfect in any kind of weather. Decent gas mileage, hauls anything I've put in it, gone from PA to Florida twice, Tennessee 3 times, and Myrtle Beach twice. I paid 10800 bucks for it in 2017 and I figure after 6 years of use and multiple trips ~ it's paid for itself already. The key is keeping proper maintenance!
