5 reasons to buy the 2021 Jeep Cherokee

1. Off-road abilities

Jeep is a brand built around off-road capabilities and the 2021 Jeep Cherokee is no different. Whether you want to reach the best crag for rock climbing or the most remote beach to hit the surf, the 2021 Jeep Cherokee can get you there. Although four-wheel drive doesn't come standard on the Cherokee, it's available on all trims, just waiting to help you get where you want to go.

2. Towing capacity

No need to cut your adventure short. The 2021 Cherokee lets you tow your boat or camper so that you can spend more time outside. Compact SUVs aren't always known for their towing prowess, but with the available tow package and available 3.2L V6 engine, the 2021 Cherokee can tow up to an estimated 4,500 lbs, when properly equipped, which is pretty impressive considering its compact footprint.

3. Upscale stereo options

If you like to keep your music bumping, you'll appreciate the 2021 Cherokee's upscale stereo options and the infotainment system that makes it easy to stay connected. The 2021 Cherokee comes standard with a seven-inch touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto connectivity, and a six-speaker audio system. An available 8.4-inch touchscreen and Alpine premium stereo allow you to crank your favorite hits even louder.

4. Anniversary models

The 2021 Jeep Cherokee offers two limited edition trims: the 80th-anniversary edition and the Latitude LUX. The 80th-anniversary model features unique badging throughout, celebrating Jeep's origins during World War II. The Latitude LUX trim offers upscale features like Napa leather seats. If you want your Jeep to stand out, either trim can give you a bit of extra flair.

5. Plenty of powertrain options

If you like the look of a Jeep, but don't need four-wheel drive, that's fine. Or perhaps you want to focus on acceleration and speed. Whatever your priority, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee has a powertrain option that will work for you. Choose from the standard four-cylinder engine, the available V6, or the available turbocharged four-cylinder. Each is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and your choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive.
