This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Jeep Cherokee (08-10) review.

Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Robust, but dated looking interior will not please everyone. Manual 2.5 petrol and diesel models have an agricultural feel to the gearchange. Driving position and visibility is good.

Cosseting seats; luggage area impaired by vertical spare wheel. Rear passenger space not as roomy as you would expect. Ride is typical of a heavy-duty 4x4 - suspension seems to crash over nasty bumps and can be bouncy over undulating surfaces.
