2024 Jeep Cherokee: Is There Going to Be a 2024 Jeep Cherokee? – Jeep Cherokee 2024 is a two-row compact crossover SUV. The Cherokee has been praised by our editors for its large interior, off-road capabilities, and sporting handling. The Cherokee’s last redesign was in 2014. This is a long time ago by today’s standards. Jeep, to its credit, has updated the Cherokee’s features, looks, and trim levels in the last few years. However, it wasn’t enough to keep it at the top of a very competitive market.
The 2023 Cherokee model received minor updates. In the year prior, the Cherokee X trim was introduced, a rugged version with a V6 and all-terrain tire, as well as an off-road suspension. The 2024 Cherokee will likely continue to be incrementally changed, but the needed redesign is not expected until the 2025 model. Like other Jeep vehicles, it’s likely that the 2024 model will feature a plug-in hybrid 4xe.
A Jeep Cherokee 2024 model is possible. It’s not clear where the 2024 Jeep Cherokee would be produced. The 2024 Cherokee will likely have some updates, but not new engines.
The 2024 Cherokee may be mostly a carryover. Jeep Cherokee 2025 would be a redesigned version to begin the next generation. The Cherokee could be replaced with a new, electric version.
Jeep has only shown us two of the new electric cars that it plans to launch in North America before 2025. Jeep has only shown us the Jeep Wagoneer S and Jeep Recon, both of which are expected to be produced by 2024.
This leaves the Cherokee open to being replaced by two new electric models. Jeep Cherokee EV may be introduced, but it might also wear a new badge. The Jeep Cherokee 4xe was a big hit, but it doesn’t seem to be an option anymore.
The STLA platform is expected to be used. The STLA platform supports hybrid and electric powertrains. The new Cherokee may be bigger.
Jim Morrison is the head of Jeep Band North America. He said that Jeep’s new Cherokee would be better and bigger than before. That’s it. The codename for the project may be KM. The Jeep Commander and Grand Cherokee L might both have a 3rd row.
Jeep will make a major change to the Cherokee crossover’s trim level and engine in 2024. The Cherokee is now available only in two trims: Altitude Lux or Trailhawk. This has had an impact on the starting price of the Cherokee. A 2.7-liter turbocharged inline-4 with 270 hp replaces the 271-hp V-6, and is only available on Trailhawk, a trim that’s designed for off-road driving. Altitude Lux is equipped with heated seats and a remote starter. The production of the Cherokee KL, which is largely unchanged since its debut in 2014, will end in 2024.
The Trailhawk is not only the most expensive Cherokee model, but it is also the best. The powerful turbocharged 4-cylinder engine not only offers a greater towing capability but also a better EPA rating over the 2.4-liter naturally aspirated in the Altitude Lux. Jeep Active Drive Lock is standard on the Trailhawk, and it beefs up the drivetrain by adding a locking differential at the rear, as well as a special mode to help you climb out of muddy, rocky conditions. Trailhawk has an additional inch in ground clearance and more aggressive tires. It also features a bigger infotainment display.
The Cherokee cabin offers a comfortable ride with supportive seats and simple controls. We would expect the Cherokee to be more spacious inside, but given its larger size on the exterior than most of its rivals. The feeling of confinement is exacerbated by the small windows and high window sills. Its cargo space is much smaller than that of most cars this size. The interior storage cubbies are also average. The Jeep has a higher liftover height than some rivals, making it more difficult to load things into the back. The Jeep’s cargo space is also smaller than its top competitors, such as Ford Escapes (34 cubic feet) and Honda CR-Vs (39).
Jeep Uconnect is a top-notch infotainment unit, offering a well-organized interface and countless features. The standard touchscreen size is 8.4 inches. The rear seat passengers can use two USB ports in the rear of the console starting with the Latitude Plus trim. Each Cherokee comes with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and an optional Wi-Fi Hotspot.
Jeep Cherokee’s Altitude Lux trim comes with a 180 horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, while Trailhawk gets a 2.0-liter engine that produces 270 horsepower and 295 pounds-feet-of-torque. The Jeep Cherokee comes standard with an all-wheel-drive system and a nine-speed automatic transmission. We haven’t tested either engine, but its 2.0-liter powerplant is one horsepower less than the V-6 in last year’s Cherokee. The Jeep Cherokee is a solid and hefty vehicle, which makes it seem larger than any of its competitors.
The suspension is tuned to be relatively firm, which controls the body roll when turning corners. This does not compromise ride quality. The Jeep is able to absorb impacts without a lot of reverberation and never feels floaty while driving. The steering is accurate and nicely weighted, although we wish it provided more road feedback. The Cherokee has a firm brake pedal that calms panic-braking situations. Its performance from 70 mph to zero is also average in its class.
For Trailhawk models equipped with the Trailer Tow Group optional equipment package, the Jeep Cherokee’s maximum towing capability is 4000 lbs. The 2023 Jeep Cherokee has a towing capacity of 4000 pounds for Trailhawk models with the optional Trailer Tow Group equipment package. This is 500 lbs less than its predecessor, whose V-6 engine had an advantage in trailering. This is still a big advantage over competitors like the Honda CR-V Mazda CX-5 and Volkswagen Tiguan. The Cherokee compact crossover actually has a better towing rating than larger SUVs like the Jeep Wrangler or Ford Edge.
According to the EPA, the Cherokee is among the least fuel-efficient vehicles in the compact crossover and SUV segment. According to the EPA, it is estimated that this version gets 21 mpg in city driving and 29 mpg on the highway with its 180-hp 2.4 liter four-cylinder engine. Trailhawk 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 with 270 hp is less fuel-efficient, achieving 20 mpg city and 26 on the highway. This is 2 mpg more than last year’s Trailhawk powered by a V-6. However, we have not yet tested either of the two versions on our 75-mph route for fuel economy.
Release Date and Price
The 2023 Jeep Cherokee may be available but there is a limited supply. The sixth generation Cherokee is expected to be luxurious, so it could be the final affordable Cherokee. The Jeep Grand Wagoneer could have the same interior as this model.
It is shocking that the 2024 Cherokee’s base model has been dropped. Latitude Lux is the first trim level in the lineup. The Latitude Lux trim includes features like leather upholstery, power liftgates, roof rails with LED lighting, digital gauge clusters, keyless ignition, heated seats, and heated steering wheels.
We know, however, that there will be new Jeep SUVs on their way. Two new Jeeps will be electric. The new Cherokee may also be a hybrid.
Early 2024 will see the release of Jeep Cherokee’s new SUV. Jeep Motors is offering the Jeep Cherokee in five different trims: Laredo Limited Trailhawk Overland Summit. Prices for each trim will begin at $30,000.
