Jeep Cherokee Overview
This small SUV could be a contender, but the Dart-based Cherokee is too underdeveloped and unrefined. If you have your heart set on one, get the 3.2-liter V6 in Limited trim. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder is slow and gets lousy fuel economy for the class--just 22-mpg overall. The nine-speed automatic is not all that responsive or refined. Handling is competent but short on agility, and the ride is jittery. The mostly quiet cabin features comfortable rear seats and a state-of-the-art infotainment system. Midtrim Limited versions can be fitted with a variety of high-end equipment. The range-topping Trailhawk is very capable off-road, and the V6's 4,500-pound towing capacity is impressive for this class. First-year reliability has been much below average.
