2014 Jeep Cherokee: Trim Level Breakdown

Cherokeetrims

Prices for the all-new Jeep Cherokee were recently released, highlighting its competitive place in the segment when it goes on sale later this summer.

The crossover is similar in size to the Chevrolet Equinox. That makes it larger than the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4s of the world, but smaller than midsizers like the Ford Edge and Jeep Grand Cherokee. It's priced similarly to the smaller crossovers as well.

Like most new models of any stripe introduced lately, there's a fair amount of standard equipment on base Cherokees. However, base Cherokees will have items like black door handles and side mirrors that could force many to move up a grade.

Find out what each trim level delivers for the price below. All prices include a $995 destination fee.

JCTrimSport

  • Jeep Cherokee Sport 4x2: $23,990
  • Jeep Cherokee Sport 4x4: $25,990

Basics: The Sport comes with a 184-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, nine-speed automatic transmission, 17-inch steel wheels, cloth seats, height adjustment, power windows with one-touch down for driver, armrest, cruise control, vanity mirrors with lights and those black door handles and side mirrors.

Interior & Tech: A six-speaker stereo is standard along with Chrysler's Uconnect system with a 5-inch touch-screen, Bluetooth connectivity, USB input and SD card reader.

Misc: LED running lights in front and taillights in back are also standard. A cargo management system with a tote is an unusual standard item included in base Cherokees.

Options: You need to pay extra for a backup camera, 17-inch alloy wheels and Cold Weather or Trailer-tow packages.

JCTrimLat

  • Jeep Cherokee Latitude 4x2: $25,490
  • Jeep Cherokee Latitude 4x4: $27,490

Basics: You get everything from the Sport model plus niceties like body-colored side mirrors and door handles. Roof rails, tinted glass, fog lamps, 17-inch aluminum wheels and a compact spare tire are also lumped into the Latitude grade.

Interior & Tech: A leather-wrapped steering wheel and ambient LED interior lighting liven up the interior.

Misc: The nifty in-seat storage compartment found in other Chrysler vehicles is also included in the Latitude's fold-flat front passenger seat.

Options: More power can be added to the Latitude with the optional 271-hp, 3.2-liter V-6. Other options include an upgraded multimedia system with an 8.4-inch touch-screen and a 506-watt nine-speaker stereo with a subwoofer. A panoramic sunroof and the Cold Weather, Comfort/Convenience and Trailer-tow packages also will cost extra.

JCtrimLimited

  • Jeep Cherokee Limited 4x2: $28,990
  • Jeep Cherokee Limited 4x4: $30,990

Basics: The Limited is the high-end version, so standard equipment includes everything from the Latitude plus heated power leather seats, a heated steering wheel, 18-inch aluminum wheels, automatic headlamps and dual-zone climate control.

Interior & Tech: Keyless entry and push-button start, 7-inch digital gauge cluster, 8.4-inch touch-screen stereo with six speakers, a backup camera and remote start are a healthy group of features for this amount of money.

Misc: Puddle lamps, auto-dim rearview mirror, universal garage door opener and even a cargo net are nice to have, too.

Options: The Limited trim's available features are similar to the Latitude's offerings in almost all respects, including the optional 3.2-liter V-6. Navigation can be added to the standard 8.4-inch touch-screen as can the 506-watt nine-speaker stereo with a subwoofer. A panoramic sunroof and Cold Weather, Comfort/Convenience and Trailer-tow packages will still cost extra.

JCTrimtrailhawk

  • Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk 4x4: $30,490

Basics: The Trailhawk is an off-road trim level that adds equipment to the Latitude list, but not the Limited model. Standard items for off-roading enthusiasts include a 4x4 system, off-road wheel flares, red tow hooks, skid plates, off-road suspension, a 1-inch increase in ride height, heavy-duty engine cooling, hill start assist and hill descent control, 17-inch aluminum wheels with black pockets and all-terrain tires.

Interior & Tech: A leather-trimmed cloth interior, 7-inch digital gauge cluster, 8.4-inch touch-screen stereo with six speakers, backup camera and remote start aren't forgotten.

Misc: Because the Trailhawk is for off-roading, Jeep revised the front and rear bumpers to allow for more aggressive approach and departure angles of 29.8 and 32.1 degrees, respectively. Total ground clearance is 8.7 inches.

Options: Extras are the same as the Limited's offerings with the optional 3.2-liter V-6. Navigation can be added to the standard 8.4-inch touch-screen as can the 506-watt nine-speaker stereo with a subwoofer. A panoramic sunroof and Cold Weather, Comfort/Convenience and Trailer-tow packages will still cost extra. The matte black hood decal you've seen in many photos is also an added extra. And if you like to off-road in style, there's a Leather Interior options package.

Beautiful design, and the pricing isn't awful.

Disgrace to the XJ Cherokee name. Over 30 grand for a "trail rated" version is so far from the heritage of Jeep that Fiat obviously doesn't understand it's customer base.

Steve

The Trailhawk version is the only one that doesn't look hideous. It's amazing to me what paint can do to enhance an ugly design. It separates the weird headlight pattern to a more normal looking one with the black accents and wider fender flares. Other than that, yuk.

jyd

Steve, right on with that analysis.

Waterloo, you're an obvious plant. Nice try.

I guess someone forgot to mention to you that the whole 'ban this' thing stopped being funny months ago. Now it's just a sign you can't think up anything intelligent to add to the conversation.

Dunno..I think this is the best looking Jeep in years. I really love the headlights and overall design. I cant wait to check these out in person, the Trailhawk edition looks the best overall but I dont need 4x4 in flat Florida.

Mr Q

I guess the team that designed the Pontiac Aztec got themselves a job?

Yikes!

What an ugly mess. I'll just wait for a few years down the line when they finally do an updated redesign resembling an actual Cherokee... though I won't hold my breath. For now, I'm doing just fine with my 99 XJ with 80k... she's a beauty.

Does anyone know whether the Limited will have front POWER passenger as well as driver seats? Need that for a passenger who has had major back surgery. Info on jeep and other sites is confusing, and I still can't find out when the Cherokee will be available.... thanks.

Michelle

I just purchased the 2014 Jeep cherokee and I LOVE it! I love the design love the interior and the way it drives!!! Before you knock it go test drive it. :)

Phil

I've had a 94 XJ and 2 WJs. The new trail hawk is soooo sick, I have an eye for things and this design looks soooo good. Change is the only constant, I love tech & design that gets out of front of competition and offers me something completely different and cool this jeep Will be a big hit. Everyone will have to admit that in due time.

Scott

So the Latitude has "... a compact spare tire.." not according to our local jeep dealer, or the Cherokee forums.

Perhaps a little update to the misleading page would be in order.

The way headlights are designed I would like to hear how well do the headlight perform on this Jeep Cherokee?

PJ

Just got a new Cherokee ... like most of you I hated the look until I actually accepted the fact that it isn't 1994 anymore and test drove one to appease my wife. A week later, it was in my garage. I may have given up some off road capabilities, but this thing is fantastic in the snow, handles like a sports car compared to the Liberty, gets good gas mileage, and has an impeccably awesome interior. If you want an XJ, go buy one, they are still around. You'll have fun taking your 1994 XJ off road, getting 17 mpg, and spending $100's on 4wd.com for replacement parts. I'll be comfortably enjoying my 2014 Cherokee living in the present.

Marcos Guzman

The new design of the Cherokee is unique and stylish. 271 horses for the V-6 and up to 28 m.p.g. isn't bad either. The interior is sporty and clean. It looks like a predator compared to all the other s.u.v.'s out there. That 9 speed transmission gives it the best of both worlds; performance and fuel efficiency. If you don't believe me, drive one.

Jose Kortright

My jeep Latitude, is useless......first when is raining or there is moist on the air...the backup camera is blocked by water. You just see the water...., if you want heated mirrors can't get something else...is ridiculous. Don't have a common item that you can get in other cars, under standard equipment, parking sensors....etc, etc, etc.

Owned 2 JGC limiteds in the 90's.Loved them.They didn't change the styling much and I didn't want to buy the same old same old.Ordered a 2014 after test driving it.Loved the comfort of the seats, the solid ride and all the bells and whistles.Minor faults, the shift is confusing(but getting better),the v8 engine little slow(I think) on the uptake, the ratio of steering seems not as good as the others I owned.WARNING: if you use a CD player and want one in the 2014 you have to pre-order it.No add-ons after the fact.I assumed it came with it, but Jeep and some other makers are stating it is becoming obsolete.Thanks to the auxiliary port, and the Jeep Forum, am using a Sony walkman.It plays through the radio.Few quirky things, but all in all am content.Won't get stuck in the snow in the future years.

The times they are a changing having owned 5 jeeps I should be biased toward traditional styling but I love my new trailhawk in anvil color!

I just sold my 01 V6 TJ sport, which I had completely done up for off roading. I too was skeptical about buying any old SUV but I just got a 4x4 v6 trailhawk and it is nasty. I got most of the upgrades and I can safely say it beats any SUV I have seen. The interior is probably better than any US car under 50 grand. The exterior looks awesome. And it's handling and speed are great. I dare you to try and roll this as the salesman dared me. Now I haven't taken it off road yet and I am sure that it will not have the same level of off roading ability as my old jeep but all around this is 100 times better. It is an SUV. If you want pure off roading a hummer beats a jeep and an mrap beats a hummer. This is a modern SUV.

KJ

Just got a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Lattitude for my work. Does anyone else feel the driver's side seat is very uncomfortable to get out of? It feels like the plastic seat molded frame is higher than the seat cushion and you have to go up and over the seat edge to get out. Repeated exits for my job cause pain and bruising to legs. I can't be the only one wondering how to fix this?

Skinny Bill

I hated the new Cherokee just as much as everybody else when it was first released. I thought it was an insult to the legacy of my 99 XJ. Then I saw/drove a Trailhawk. Ordered one the next week. Don't knock the Trailhawk until you drive it.
