Jeep has greatly pared down the Jeep Cherokee lineup for what appears to be the final model year of the current generation. The 2023 Cherokee is now available in Altitude Lux and Trailhawk trim levels, with the only engine options now being the 180-hp naturally aspirated 2.4-liter inline-four and a 270-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four; the previous 3.2-liter V-6 engine has been dropped.
The 180-hp 2.4-liter inline-four is the base engine, and the 270-hp 2.0-liter turbo four is optional.
Pricing starts at $39,290 for the Altitude Lux and $42,890 for the Trailhawk, and both come standard with all-wheel drive. That’s a big jump from the base price of the 2022 model, which started at $31,590 for the front-wheel-drive Altitude; However, even the 2022 Altitude 4×4 was $6,200 less than this year’s Altitude Lux model, which has extra equipment including leather seats, a heated steering wheel and remote start. The Trailhawk, which previously had the 3.2-liter V-6 engine, gets a $3,750 price increase over last year.
