Under the Cherokee's Hood

There are two engine options: the standard 184-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder and an optional 271-hp, 3.2-liter V-6. Both are teamed to a nine-speed automatic transmission, a first for Jeep and its Chrysler parent. The 9-speed transmission feels great, and Jeep representatives say that the manual feature allows for shifts within a threshold of maximum efficiency.

Design of Jeep Cherokee

Cherokee continues in 2-door and 4-door styling, and the latter is far more popular. The 2-door comes in a Sport price level, and the 4-door comes in Sport and Limited price levels. Both body styles are 167" long, 14" shorter than the Grand Cherokee. Cherokee holds five people, though the rear seat is cramped compared to some rivals', and the narrow rear doors can be tight for adults to negotiate. The spare tire is mounted upright in the cargo area, eating up some storage space. An outside tire carrier is available from Jeep dealers.
