The Jeep Cherokee is a compact crossover SUV that has been manufactured by Jeep since its debut in 1974. It is considered the smaller version of the full-sized Jeep Grand Cherokee.
There has been a total of five iterations. Modern generations have been given the designations of KJ, KK, and KL. Interestingly, the KJ and KK models were sold as Jeep Liberty only in North America. They were both sold globally as a new generation of the Jeep Cherokee.
The latest generation, KL, was released in 2014.
It has a 5-door layout and is currently built on the FCA Compact Wide platform. While this is a commonly used platform by Fiat, it is the first time Jeep has implemented the platform.
There have been several different trim options throughout its lifespan. Since 2019, these are the base Latitude, followed by Latitude Plus, Altitude, Trailhawk, Limited, and Overland. Depending on the trim option, the Jeep Cherokee was available in front-wheel or four-wheel-drive.
Diesel powertrains for the later generations range from Fiat’s modern 2-liter Multijet II inline-4 to the older and larger 2.8-liter VM Motori inline-4.
Petrol options have also decreased in size over the years. The smallest option in recent years is the 2-liter GME T4 Hurricane inline-4 and goes up to the 3.7-liter PowerTech V6.
These later generations were given the options of 4-speed, 5-speed, and 9-speed automatics. There has also been a 6-speed manual option for a number of years.
