2018 Jeep Cherokee Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team


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.

New for 2018

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.

So far so good

by Customer from Pa on February 10, 2020

Coming out of the Wrangler life after 3 of them and into a Cherokee. So many bells and whistles compared to a spartan Wrangler JKU. Very much enjoying the Cherokee’s ride, handling and amenities. I ... Read full review

I like the vehicle.

by I. Walley from Winter Haven on January 12, 2020

This vehicle does not have enough head room and it is too compact for my liking. Other than that the car has held up well so far. I would only recommend if I think it is suitable for the person. Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
