2018 Jeep Cherokee review: Our expert's take

What it is: The Jeep Cherokee compact SUV comes with four-cylinder or V-6 power and front-wheel drive or a choice of three four-wheel-drive systems. All models have a nine-speed automatic transmission. While certain Cherokee models have more off-road capability than the class norm, most versions compete with on-road-focused small SUVs like the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V and Nissan Rogue.

The Latitude is now the base trim and comes with standard 17-inch aluminum wheels, foglights, high-intensity-discharge headlights and a backup camera. A new Latitude Plus trim level adds an 8.4-inch touchscreen multimedia system, satellite radio, keyless access, an eight-way power driver's seat and a household power outlet.

I love the spacious on the inside

Love the interior and exterior , has all the features I need and will use ! Very sexy car :) I love the fact I can take my fur babies to beach now . They love to ride.


Love it all!

The interior is spacious, comfortable, and full off options. The exterior is sleek and attractive. Handles well. Good gas mileage. Haven't had any issues with it yet. Also love that it has a full sized spare tire and not a donut or the kits that the jeeps come with now.


Perfect fit

This car met all of our expectations plenty of leg room and is peppy enough to get up to speed without worrying about getting run over
