Edmunds Reviews

Edmunds.com – notes that advanced safety features that were once optional in previous model years are now standard for 2021. What’s more, each trim boasts more standard comfort features! Plus, if that’s not enough, new for 2021 are a Jeep Cherokee Latitude Lux Edition model and a 2021 Jeep Cherokee 80th Anniversary Edition model.

Car and Driver Reviews

Car and Driver – notes that the 2021 Cherokee “tows more than its competition, [offers] multiple powertrain options, [and provides] class-leading off-road capability.” Car and Driver also says:

  • For 2021, Jeep gives the Cherokee several newly standard active safety features. These include automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, and more. The lineup also benefits from reshuffled standard features. For instance, the base model adds heated exterior mirrors and one-touch up/down front side windows; the Trailhawk adds a heated steering wheel and front seats as well as remote start. There’s also a new 80th Anniversary Edition that’s based on the Latitude LUX trim level, so it inherits all the same standard features. Highlights include Granite Crystal 19-inch wheels, leather upholstery with contrast stitching, power-adjustable front seats, the larger 8.4-inch touchscreen, a panoramic sunroof, and more.
  • The 2021 Jeep Cherokee separates itself from the typical compact crossover with class-leading off-road and towing capabilities. Its Jeep genealogy will appeal to outdoorsy types, some of whom may actually need a vehicle that can handle driving beyond where the pavement ends.

Kelley Blue Book Reviews

Kelley Blue Book – notes just how versatile the 2021 Jeep Cherokee is compared to most other compact crossover SUVs:

  • Those ever-popular Japanese vehicles are great for running around the suburbs as well as longer trips. The Cherokee can easily cover such duties as well. And its safety features are just as plentiful. But if someone wanted a stronger SUV flavor, with a choice of engines and perhaps some real off-roading capability, then the Cherokee stakes a particular claim…Most competitors come with a single engine. The Cherokee offers three. It weighs more than most in this segment and has one of the smallest cargo compartments, but compensates with its style, power, towing ability (up to 4,500 pounds), and off-road readiness.
