Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 29 - 53 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

As far as fuel consumption goes, lowest Jeep Cherokee running costs belong to the lower powered 138bhp 2.0-litre diesel which averages a claimed 53.3mpg in front-wheel-drive form. Four-wheel-drive models with the same engine are rated at 50.4mpg.

Four-wheel drive Cherokees fitted with the more powerful 168bhp version of the same engine return a 48.7mpg average.

Predictably, the picture is less rosy for the 3.2-litre petrol Trailhawk which manages an alarming 28.2mpg claimed average.

Lowest Jeep Cherokee emissions in terms of CO2 belong to the 138bhp diesel, which emits 139g/km of CO2 in two-wheel-drive form. That just might be enough to attract the attentions of company car buyers looking for something different.

Powering an extra pair of wheels increases those emissions to 147g/km in four-wheel-drive models.

The 168bhp 4x4 Cherokee diesel manages 154g/km and the 3.2-litre petrol 232g/km.

It’s too early to make any cast-iron predictions about Jeep Cherokee reliability, although the diesel engines are established units from the Fiat family and generally Jeep reliability is fine.
