The 2021 Jeep Cherokee is a compact crossover utility vehicle offered in a plethora of trim levels, with multiple engine and drivetrain choices.

In Canada, the Cherokee is available in Sport, North, 80th Anniversary Edition, Altitude, Trailhawk, Limited, Trailhawk Elite and High Altitude trim levels. In the United States, the lineup consists of Latitude, Freedom, Latitude Plus, Altitude, Latitude LUX, 80th Anniversary Edition, Limited, Trailhawk and High Altitude. Some boast a sportier appearance, while others present a more luxurious look, and the Trailhawk is the only variant that wears Jeep’s Trail Rated badge.

A naturally aspirated, 2.4L four cylinder serves as the base engine with 180 horsepower, while a 3.2L V6 with 271 horsepower and a turbocharged 2.0L producing 270 horsepower are also available in select trim levels. All three are managed by a nine-speed automatic transmission. In Canada, only the base Sport trim can be specified with a front-wheel drivetrain, while the rest are equipped with a 4×4 system. In the U.S., almost every trim level is available in either FWD or 4×4 configurations.

Buyers can choose the either the Jeep Active Drive I or Active Drive II four-wheel drivetrain, while the Trailhawk gets a system called Jeep Active Drive Lock. The latter adds the Active Drive II’s low range and is paired with a mechanical locking differential as well as hill descent control with a selectable speed program.
