If the Cherokee's welcoming front end appears familiar, that's because Jeep hasn't made many changes to its compact crossover since it was first introduced in 2014. In automobile years, that's Social Security-eligible. While the current KL generation of Cherokees will end production in 2023, the newest old Cherokee will have some updated mechanicals under its dated skin. A new powertrain and two trim levels are all that Jeep has left as it gets ready to replace the old Cherokee. All Trailhawk and Altitude Lux models available this year come standard with all-wheel drive. The Cherokee's starting price is now far higher than that of rivals like the Kia Sportage, Mazda CX-5, and Honda CR-V, but Jeep does make up for some of that by including amenities as standard equipment. The old V-6 was discontinued in favor of a new four-cylinder 270-hp turbocharged engine, which is available only on the Trailhawk trim. The Cherokee's comfortable ride and copious driver aids are not enough to keep it competitive against newer and less expensive competitors. That said, it does offer credible off-road capability that its rivals lack, as well as one of the strongest brand names in the SUV segment.
