Jeep has refreshed the Cherokee, giving it a face-lift, additional creature comforts, and a turbocharged engine option.
But despite those improvements, it’s still a mediocre model -- with little to like -- in a popular and competitive segment.
It still suffers from an uncooperative transmission, a stiff ride, and mundane handling.
We expect the 2022 Cherokee will be less reliable than the average new car. This prediction is based on data from 2019, 2020 and 2021 models. Select the used car model year to see reported issues with those similar past models.
Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting
how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive
reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest
subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown
on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the
engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system.
NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide
data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.
For this Rating, we averaged a model’s Overall Reliability for the newest three years, provided the vehicle did not change significantly in that time and hasn’t been redesigned for 2021.
We include a prediction for a model that is new or has been redesigned, based on its reliability history or the manufacturer’s track record.
