Jeep Plays The Luxury Card With The New 2021 Cherokee LUX

Jeep introduces the 2021 Cherokee LUX to compete with premium offerings with loads of kit and attractive price


  • The Cherokee LUX is the definition of fully-loaded.

  • Nappa leather does not come at the expense of true off-road capabilities.

  • Priced from $31,145 in the US.


The ever increasing competition in the compact SUV segment is helping push boundaries. By that, we mean that special off-road and luxury editions are growing in numbers. The Jeep Cherokee is already an accomplished and capable SUV and now, FCA has introduced a LUX trim to compete with premium entries as well.

The name leaves little to the imagination. As such, standard features like Nappa leather heated seats, power front seats with power lumbar adjuster, premium-wrapped heated steering wheel, remote start, windshield wiper deicer, and Uconnect with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Numerous safety features will also be included such as Full-speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, Blind-spot Monitoring, and LaneSense Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist.

The 3.2-litre Pentastar V6 with a 9-speed automatic transmission will drive the front wheels or all four wheels as an option. With AWD, the Cherokee LUX will be delivered with Jeep’s Selec-Terrain traction control system with rear-axle disconnect.

The list options features a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, premium 9-speaker Alpine sound system and 8.4-inch touchscreen radio, as well as a Trailer Tow group.

The 2021 Jeep Cherokee LUX is available now, priced from $30,145 or $31,645 with AWD.
