This just in: A seriously enhanced Jeep Cherokee for 2022

A longtime fixture in the Jeep world, reaching back to when it was an American Motors property, the Jeep Cherokee is made over big time for 2022 across no less than four trims levels, not bad for what once was a standalone model. The new-generation Cherokee for 2022 blends standard, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder power with independent suspension at all four corners, a level of chassis sophistication that once would have been unthinkable at Jeep Central in Toledo. The optional engine, we should add, is a 3.2-liter V-6 with Chrysler lineage, along with a standard nine-speed automatic transmission.

The image you see here shows a 2022 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk, one of the four models that now compose the Cherokee range and which also include the Cherokee X – talk about hearkening back to AMC – the Cherokee Latitude LUX and the Cherokee Limited, with the Trailhawk slotted just below the Limited in the model hierarchy. Two four-wheel-drive systems are offered – the Latitude LUX also offers two-wheel drive – with a best-in-class towing rating of 4,500 pounds for Cherokees with V-6 power. Suffice to say that the list of available safety and convenience appointments runs to more than 80 items.
