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.
