Jeep Cherokee Questions

I was wondering what are the most pressing questions are about the Jeep Cherokee? As we approach the official launch and the Cherokee will be available to the public I would like to make sure everyone has all their questions answered.

Re: Jeep Cherokee Questions

I love my 2012 Grand Cherokee and my wife's Pilot is nearing replacement time.
1. How does the Cherokee compare (size, features, comfort) to the GC?
2. Specifications (size)?
3. Cost???

Re: Jeep Cherokee Questions

my questions mirror Tom's. I need to be able to fit 3 kids in the backseat, two of which will be in car seats/booster seats.
In addition, will the launch include all 4 models, specifically the Trailhawk?
More specific information relating to gas mileage...
Will Xenon (HID) headlights be an option on the Trailhawk?
When will there be additional information regarding accessories?

Oh, and when does it hit dealer lots (or at least the order banks open)?

Thanks!

Re: Jeep Cherokee Questions

What does it cost?? I would like to be able to build on the Jeep site. When will it hit dealerships?

I'm looking to purchase a new car for my wife in the next month or two and would love to consider the Cherokee if i had this info.

Couldn't be happier with my 2012 GC.

First of all, thanks for this thread! I hope to order one the moment its possible.

1) What size tires on the TrailHawk
2) What is the height of the cargo opening?
3) What is the depth of the cargo space from the inside of the gate (closed) to the back of the seats (middle position)?
4) What interior colors will be available on the TH?
5) Will the wheels from my 2012 Wrangler work on the TH?

Re: Jeep Cherokee Questions

I hope this chart helps. I gave you both dimensions and calculated the percent difference on each one. I’m sorry pricing hasn’t been released yet, but I will let you know when we’re ready to discuss that.

If you are looking for specification sheets you can also find them as well as images on:

media.chrysler.com this information is available without a log-in. Just simply click the brand you are interested in and you can find specifications there.

I really hope this was helpful. Thank you for the question.

Re: Jeep Cherokee Questions

what about official fuel economy numbers for both i-4 and v6?

Will they break out the fuel economy for trailhawk separately from the regular cherokee. I expect fuel economy will be a bit worse because of the higher ride height and beefier tires.
