The third generation of the Jeep Cherokee will reportedly arrive next year, and its design is getting a mild facelift. The last model received some mild changes in 2021, so we do not expect significant upgrades at all. As usual, the 2023 Jeep Cherokee will continue to be offered as small SUVs, offering modern exterior design.
If you do plan to get the new SUV, we highly recommend going for the Trailhawk version, which comes with raised suspension, advanced four-wheel-drive system and all-terrain tires. As the second generation, the third one should deploy the same strong V6 and turbocharged engines.
Is Jeep Going to Redesign the Cherokee?
In terms of styling, the 2023 Jeep Cherokee looks the same as the bigger and more expensive Grand Cherokee. We can surely say it looks both rugged and premium. Unlike the boxy and military-inspired Wrangler model, the Cherokee features modern styling with great off-road capabilities. Like before, the design of this SUV can change a bit in the upper trim. For example, if you decide to go for the X model or even the Trailhawk trims, you can count on more rugged styling and better off-roading.
Compared with other Jeep models, the Cherokee is way bigger than the Compass, but it’s still smaller than the Grand Cherokee. In general, it’s very similar to the models like the Subaru Forester, Chevrolet Equinox, and Honda CR-V.
The 2023 Jeep Cherokee is not the roomiest SUV in its class, but it still offers a very comfortable cabin that can fit five passengers. The cargo space of this SUV is only 25.8 cubic feet. Anyway, if you’re looking for a more spacious model, rivals like the Honda CR-V and the Mazda CX-50 offer a bit more refinement.
Since the last Jeep Cherokee received a few updates, the new one will mainly remain the same, with some additional features. As standard, the Cherokee is available with a user-friendly 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system and Android Auto/Apple CarPlay. Safety is also good thanks to a blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, rear parking sensors, automatic headlights, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.
2023 Jeep Cherokee Engine
Like before, the forthcoming 2023 Jeep Cherokee should be powered by the same standard 2.4-liter inline-4 that produces an amazing output of 180 hp. Of course, as an optional thing, you can still get a torquier 3.2-liter V6 with 271 hp output and 239 lb-ft of torque.
Jeep also offers a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4, producing 270 horses and 295 lb-ft of torque. All mentioned engines are paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission using front or all-wheel drive. The Cherokee with the base engine has a towing capacity of 4000 pounds, while the V6 offers 4500 pounds.
How Much the New 2023 Jeep Cherokee Will Cost?
Apparently, the price of the 2023 Jeep Cherokee should not change too much from its predecessor. In general, we’re expecting some small increase for the upper trims. The pricing of the current Jeep Cherokee starts at $27,995 for the Altitude trim. The upper models as the X start at $32,635, while the Latitude Lux begins at $33,195.
The most favorite Trailhawk model cost $36,795. As before, the Limited trim is the most expensive model that starts at $37,945. The Cherokee is a little more expensive than the Chevrolet Equinox, Honda CR-V, and Subaru Forester.
