Fuel consumption 7.5 – 12.9 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 68%(view ratings)
Slightly bigger than most traditional compact SUVs, the Jeep Cherokee is a very interesting product for those who want space in a reasonably sized package with solid off-road skills. Available in a variety of trim levels, the Cherokee can be had with one of these three engines: a naturally aspirated 2.4-litre four-cylinder, a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder and a naturally aspirated 3.2-litre V6. That last one boasts a segment-leading towing capacity of up to 4,500 pounds.
