The compact SUV is a popular vehicle choice because it offers both fuel efficiency and space. When compared to the midsize sedan, compact SUVs are more practical and better suited for families. A great example of this body style's family-friendly design is the 2022 Jeep Cherokee. The newest Cherokee offers plenty of passenger and cargo space, including a multi-level cargo floor and 60/40 split-folding seats. As exciting as these features are, they're only part of the reason we recommend this model to buyers.
Unlike many compact SUVs, the Cherokee is very performance-capable and can tow up to 4,500 pounds when properly equipped. It's also Trail Rated, offering an available terrain mode system and rear locking differential for serious off-road performance. Even at a base level, though, the Cherokee is 4x4 capable. This model's towing capacity, paired with its off-roading capability and interior space, creates the perfect balance between family fun and practicality.
Most importantly, if you're already set on getting a compact SUV, know that the 2022 Cherokee outperforms several of its competitors. Whether you're interested in the Subaru Outback or the Honda CR-V, this Jeep outdoes them both––the Cherokee balances efficiency and capability better than any model in its class.
It doesn't matter if you're a nature lover, a city dweller, or a mixture of both, 2022 Jeep Cherokee has a trim option for you. Even at the base level, you've got everything you'll need with the X trim, including best-in-class towing ratings and a standard 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 engine. That said, if you want to increase your capability, you certainly can. The available Trail Rated Trailhawk trim is your best bet for off-roading and outdoor adventures.
Modern Jeep models include something called the "Trail Rated Badge." This badge means that the Jeep has undergone a series of trials to prove its capability. A Trail Rated Jeep must undergo Traction, Articulation, Maneuverability, Ground Clearance, and Water Fording tests. The Cherokee Trailhawk trim is a Trail-Rated model that is designed to tackle the trails. While this model won't get you as far as a Wrangler can, it will take drivers places that regular SUVs can't, thanks to water sealing and several available 4x4 systems.
For the 2022 Jeep Cherokee, there are three different levels of 4x4 available. Active Drive, Active Drive II, and Active Drive Lock. Active Drive is for casual drivers who are looking for all-weather capability. This system automatically kicks it into 4x4 when it's necessary and back into two-wheel drive when the terrain is normal.
Active Drive II is designed specifically with the outdoors in mind. This 4x4 system offers 4-Low mode for steep inclines and slippery terrain, generating more torque than the standard Active Drive system. Finally, the Active Drive Lock option adds an enhanced Rock Mode that increases off-roading traction. It also includes a rear locking differential, which further enhances traction and provides optimal off-roading capability.
It's difficult to balance fuel efficiency and towing capacity. The more powerful your engine, the less fuel-efficient, and vice versa. That said, the 2022 Jeep Cherokee offers a nice mixture of both factors. The standard V6 engine can get up to 23 MPG combined and 29 MPG on the highway. You need this V6 engine to reach the max 4,500-pound tow capacity. The optional 2.0-liter turbo I4 can reach up to 26 MPG combined and 31 MPG on the highway while still towing up to 4,000 pounds.
It's important to keep the kids entertained for the drive and equally important that the commute is smooth and simple for you. This is why the 2022 Jeep Cherokee includes features like available 8-device Wi-Fi Hotspot connectivity, an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, and Amazon Alexa compatibility. SiriusXM Guardian brings even more tech features to the table as well.
Those who need the latest convenience features can add on available SiriusXM Guardian to access remote vehicle controls, along with built-in navigation, an emergency SOS system, and a monthly vehicle health report. This subscription also includes something called "Send & Go," which allows drivers to remotely connect your navigation information from your phone to your infotainment screen. Whether you need to unlock your doors for a friend or you want to preheat your vehicle in the morning, SiriusXM Guardian has you covered.
Every modern vehicle model comes with a standard rearview backup camera. That said, the Cherokee's camera includes helpful gridlines to help you park easier. Parking gets even easier with the available ParkSense Rear Park Assist with Stop, which uses sensors to detect objects when you're parking up. If there's something you don't see via your mirrors or camera, the Cherokee's technologies can detect it and stop the vehicle, avoiding a collision.
Available Parallel and Perpendicular Park with Full Stop goes even further, automatically parking the Cherokee for you when appropriate. When you're ready to park, simply activate this system and let the computer do the rest. Just keep your eyes on the road and follow the commands without needing to do any steering.
Rain-Sensing wipers are designed to activate and adjust the speed at the first sign of rain. As the rain gets lighter or harder, the Cherokee's Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers will adjust to match the rain's intensity. This not only keeps you from having to readjust the wipers––it also helps keep your blades longer due to less wear and tear.
Safety is important to have in any vehicle, but it's especially important to have safety tech features in a family commuter. That's why the 2022 Jeep Cherokee comes with over 80 standard and available safety technologies. In addition to variety, the Cherokee also includes a standard safety suite. This means you get standard safety technologies, even at the base level.
Blind Spot and Rear Cross-Path Detection: Whether you're on the highway or you're backing out of a parking space, these technologies can monitor your path and send alerts when it's not safe to merge or exit your parking space.
Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning Plus: Forward Collision Warning is common on modern vehicles, but this Full-Speed version works at even higher speeds than traditional warning systems. When an accident appears unavoidable, you'll get an alert, along with automatic braking when necessary.
LaneSense Lane Departure Warning Plus: These technologies help keep you centered in the correct lane and are there to keep your attention in check. You'll get an alert if you start to drift into the wrong lane. If you don't correct the issue yourself, this technology will recenter you into the correct lane.
Electronic Stability Control: Using multiple sensors, this technology can detect and help correct oversteer or understeer. For example, if you panicky swerve or don't cut the wheel quite hard enough, Electronic Stability Control is there to help balance out your mistakes.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go: This technology makes the Cherokee as close to "self-driving" as it gets without offering a self-driving feature. Like traditional cruise control, Adaptive Cruise Control allows you to set your speed; however, it also provides an option to keep space between you and the vehicle ahead. You can choose how much distance you want to maintain. The Stop & Go technology will automatically brake and accelerate for you when needed.
Automatic Headlights: You no longer have to rely on personal judgment and memory to appropriately adjust your headlights. The 2022 Cherokee comes with optional Automatic Headlights that include sensors so that the lighting adjusts based on current lighting conditions.
