2022 Jeep Cherokee review: Our expert's take

By Brian Normile and Jennifer Geiger

Most significant changes: Consolidation to four total trims for 2022, starting with the new base X; base 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine dropped; Uconnect 4C with 8.4-inch touchscreen standard; additional standard equipment for Latitude Lux

Pricing: The 2022 Cherokee starts at $35,590 for an X or Latitude Lux model, a significant $6,105 increase over the base 2021 starting price for an erstwhile Latitude trim with front-wheel drive. Prices for the Trailhawk and Limited trims increase slightly for 2022.

On sale: Now, with X trim arriving later in 2022

Which should you buy, 2021 or 2022? Shoppers looking for the most affordable Cherokee should look for a 2021; prices are up for 2022 on the base model, but you also get more features, including a standard V-6 engine. Those shopping for higher trims may also want to consider a model-year 2021 since prices are also up, but not as significantly.

Jeep’s Cherokee SUV sees some minor changes for 2022, including a trim level shake-up that moves the Latitude Lux to the base trim instead of 2021’s Latitude. In addition, there’s more standard equipment for the Latitude Lux and the Uconnect system with the 8.4-inch touchscreen is now standard; the 2021 base model used a 7-inch display.

For 2022, the new Cherokee X trim joins the lineup. It adds more rugged-looking graphics outside as well as upgraded cloth and vinyl seats with a trim-specific pattern inside. The X has standard four-wheel drive, rides on a 1-inch-taller suspension and uses the 3.2-liter V-6 engine. Also new for 2022, the base Latitude Lux trim gets additional standard equipment such as a power liftgate, 7-inch color display, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and a 115-volt power outlet.

The 2022 Jeep Cherokee in base Latitude Lux with front-wheel drive trim and the V-6 engine starts at $35,590, a significant $6,105 increase over the 2021’s $29,485 starting price for a lower Latitude trim with FWD and the previous base four-cylinder engine (prices include a $1,595 destination).

That base 2.4-liter four-cylinder has been dropped entirely for 2022. The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is an additional $695 across the lineup. For 2022, the Latitude Lux is the only model with FWD; 4WD costs an additional $1,500.

The new Cherokee X trim, like the Latitude Lux, starts at $35,590. The 4WD-only Trailhawk trim starts at $38,640, up slightly from 2021’s $38,135. At the top of the list, the 4WD-only Limited starts at $40,340, also more than a model-year 2021 Limited 4WD’s $38,935 price.

The 2022 Jeep Cherokee is on sale now; Jeep said the new X trim will be out later.

Still A Jeep Girl...BUT

I love my Cherokee overall. This is my 3rd one. Sadly I've noticed the quality slipping. Jeep no longer provides a spare tire - WHAT? The floor mats are now of lesser quality and no longer have the Jeep emblem embroidered on them. The transmission is still a little iffy but not as bad as my '15. The tail lights fill with condensation but the dealership tells me it is normal to do so - WHAT? Additionally you're never gonna be able to find a V6 anymore. I had to go down a year to a '22 in order to get one. They are pushing EVs and Hybrids. All this being said I'm still Jeep girl and still love my Cherokee.


New car making noise when press brake on reverse

I do have 1 complaints about my brake issue, when reverse it making da da noise, even forward when press brake down to 5mph, also making da noise, dealership told me is software issue wait for few month for software update to solve the issue, so I still waiting to see if it can be fix, but it is annoying with that noise especially is a new car, can not accept that . Will keep it update see if they fix it or is a lemon car before I call dvm to file complaint.


Power to Spare

Go with the 3.2 V 6 it has plenty of power. The Auto engine stop/start is terrible even if it does save gas it is too jerky
