All new Jeep Cherokee was introduced as 2014th model so we are sure that the 2015 Jeep Cherokee will not come with any significant changes. This has been officially confirmed and that is not the only information that we have received regarding this model that should come to the market before the end of this year.
For those drivers that are looking for a mid-size SUV vehicle we can recommend the 2015 Jeep Cherokee as one of the models that needs to be tested since we are sure that it will please most drivers. When originally launched during previous year it brought nine speed automatic transmission in combination with one of the best 4×4 powertrains. More gears and higher efficiency of engines allows this car to improve fuel economy up to 40 percent in certain drive conditions.
We can agree with President and CEO of Jeep, Mike Manley that this mid-size SUV vehicle will set at least few standards in this segment. One of the biggest advantages that this generation of Cherokee will offer is the fact that it brings more than 70 advanced security and safety features making the ride much safer and occupant protected in any situation. Another thing that we really like for the 4×4 system in this model is the fact that the rear axle will be disconnected when there is no need for all-wheel drive and when it is needed it will come back on seamlessly.
Base engine in the 2015 Jeep Cherokee will be 2.4 liter Tigershark MultiAir 2 I4 unit that produces respective 184 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque. When on the highway you can expect it to return about 31 mpg but have in mind that this is pretty large and heavy vehicle which means that this result is even more impressive.
More power is supplied by the 3.2 liter V6 Pentastar powerplant that offers 271 hp and 239 lb-ft of torque which should be more than enough for most drivers. Since this unit is made by sourcing of the 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 unit that received many awards, you can be sure it will use same technology and that it will again return great performances, smoothness and fuel economy ratings. When this engine is under the hood the 2015 Jeep Cherokee will be able to tow up to 4,500 pounds.
With the 2014th model Jeep needed to create modern and refined looks that will not significantly differ from the original looks of the older models. This was done successfully and we are now getting modern yet root oriented vehicle. One of the main advantages of Jeep vehicles, off-road capability have been preserved and you can be sure that it will not let you down no matter what type of terrain you have prepared for it. Size and height of this model will give it commanding road presence while seven slotted grille in combination with LED technology pronounces its power. On the back, we again have LED technology incorporated into harmonious taillights.

Those drivers that want their Cherokee to look different than most and be more capable should opt for the Trailhawk model that brings skid plates underneath, rugged exterior looks and exposed tow hooks. This model will allow any driver to attack must steeper slopes and clime angles that usually is not possible with this type of vehicles and all this is done thankfully to fantastic 4×4 system.
All those innovations that are offered to the exterior are followed with improvements in the interior and the 2015 Jeep Cherokee comes with many luxury options. Signature trapezoidal view is something that we could see in many previous Jeep models and craftsmanship is on the high level. Everything is fitted nicely and can be easily reached by both driver and front seat passenger. Center console is dominated with the large touch screen that offers all the most important information’s about car and allows control over the infotainment system. Wheel comes with controls on it so you will be always holding the wheel with two hands. Overall impression is quite positive thankfully to high quality materials and effort that was invested into building of this model.
Base trim level of the 2015 Jeep Cherokee is Sport and it comes with a price tag of $22,995 but as the trim levels and optional features increase price goes up drastically. For the top of the line Limited 3.2L V6 AWD model you will need to pay $30,395 and if you add optional features price will be even higher.
