2023 Jeep Cherokee Offered in Just 2 Trims


Two years ago, Jeep offered the Cherokee compact SUV in nine different trim levels. Last year, Jeep cut its lineup down to four. This year, Cherokees are down to just two.

Jeep announced this week that its compact SUV will be available in the off-road-specialized Trailhawk trim or the jack-of-all-trades Altitude Lux 4×4 model. The company has not announced pricing. The 2022 Cherokee starts at his $34,895, but we expect the 2023 price to rise slightly.

The Altitude Lux is powered by a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 180 horsepower and delivers power to all four wheels via a 9-speed automatic transmission. It comes with heated Nappa leather seats, a heated steering wheel, Piano Black interior trim and an 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment screen.

Instead, the Trailhawk uses a 270 horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Same with equipment list. However, it does add automatic high beam lights, auto-dimming rearview mirrors, a security alarm, and a universal garage door opener.

The venerable 3.2-liter Pentastar V6, which has served Jeep vehicles for over a decade, has disappeared from the Cherokee line-up.

If the number of trim levels seems to be heading towards zero, there’s a reason. Jeep management has begun hinting that a Cherokee successor could appear on his 2024 model year. CEO Christian Meunier told Motor Trend last year that the next-generation Cherokee will have “a lot of electrification.” This could indicate a fully electric vehicle like the European-only Jeep Avenger, or a plug-in he hybrid like the Wrangler 4xe.
