2021 Jeep Cherokee Performance Features


Durable, Fun, and Versatile Jeep Crossover

The 2021 Jeep Cherokee is a versatile vehicle for daily driving and off-road fun. Its capable drivetrain and engine choices give drivers what they need with plenty of cargo space, standard safety features, and an impressive towing capacity.

Impressive Performance and Capability

The 2021 Jeep Cherokee is the smaller sibling of the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Cherokee performance features include a standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 180 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. The second engine option is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo with 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Finally, the third engine option is a 3.2-liter V6 with 271 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. All trims and engines come with a nine-speed automatic transmission.

When it comes to towing capacity, the 2.0-liter turbo can manage up to 4,000 pounds when properly equipped with the Trailer Tow Package, while the V6 ups the capacity to 4,500 pounds. The standard Jeep Latitude with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder and front-wheel drive can tow up to 2,000 pounds.

Along with the class-leading towing capacity for a compact crossover, the 2021 Cherokee has a respectable fuel economy. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder has an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 22/31 MPG and the V6 delivers an EPA-estimated 18/24/ MPG. The turbocharged model gets an EPA-estimated 23/31 MPG. When equipped with all-wheel drive, the fuel economy drops about a mile per gallon.

The Jeep Cherokee is a great choice for a daily driver, but it also has impressive off-road capability. Jeep offers three four-wheel-drive options for the Cherokee, and they all include the Selec-Terrain traction management system with automatic 4WD engagement with hill descent and low-ranging gears. Drivers who frequently go off-road should choose the 2021 Cherokee Trailhawk trim with the Active Drive Lock four-wheel-drive system, all-terrain tires, and off-road suspension.

Trims and Technology

Like the offerings for the Jeep Grand Cherokee for sale, the Jeep Cherokee comes in several trims. The newest offering for 2021 is the Latitude LUX with the V6 engine, leather seats, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, and more.

Jeep includes the UConnect infotainment system in all trims. The standard infotainment screen is 7.0-inches and comes with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. Upgraded trims include an 8.4-inch touchscreen. The Latitude Plus trim includes two USB ports, heated seats and steering wheel, and remote start.

All Jeep Cherokee trims come with several standard driver-assistive features that include Forward Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers, and a Rearview Camera.
