excessive oil usage

I have a 2016 Cherokee that I purchased in August 2015. I am adding 1 quart of oil about every 2500 miles or so. I took it to the dealer I bought it at and the service adviser said "Oh that's normal for these jeeps to use a quart or two between oil changes". I have spoken to 2 other Cherokee owners, a lead instructor at an automotive technologies school and they all say no that's not normal. I am going in tomorrow to have a consumption test done, and have it documented in case there are problems in the future. Is anyone else having the same issue or is the service adviser blowing smoke up my tailpipe.\?

Re: excessive oil usage

My '13 Hemi likes a little oil between changes. Here is the "standard" allowed by FCA that I found:

Here is the similar TSB on it. I don't think I'd be too happy if I had 50k on my jeep and it was using 1 quart every 750 miles and they told me it was normal

Re: excessive oil usage

Thanks for the help and info. If I have 7500 miles on it and do not like having to add oil every month or two. I may
have to get rid of it already. I never had to add oil like this to any vehicle I've owned and I have had a few lousy cars in my time. Thanks again.
