The upcoming 2022 Jeep Cherokee is still one year away. Because of that, most of the details are still not available. However, the latest renderings are showing how the new model could look like. On top of that, Cherokee will offer a very spacious cabin with plenty of modern amenities. The comfort is great, along with the ride quality.
Under the hood, this SUV will probably offer Pentastar and Hemi engines. The price is still a mystery but anything above $30k would be a huge surprise. The sales will begin in the last quarter of 2021 and here’s all the info you need to know about the arriving Cherokee.
2022 Cherokee Redesign
Thanks to the latest renderings, we have an idea of how the 2022 Jeep Cherokee could look like. First of all, this SUV won’t depart from its Grand Cherokee sibling. Of course, dimensions are different but styling is basically the same. Both models will wear a design that is based on the Grand Wagoneer concept.
That means we should be seeing smaller corner vents, horizontal LED headlamps, and the grille that will dip into the lower fascia. The rear section comes with taillights that will sit taller than before. Furthermore, the rear part will host a prominent trapezoidal exhaust.
The interior of the 2022 Jeep Cherokee will look very stylish and modern. As you probably know, Cherokee will offer an optional third row of seats. Thanks to that, customers can choose between five-seat and seven-seat cabin configurations. As for the changes in 2022, Cherokee will gain a couple of improvements.
For a start, spy photos are showing new and more upscale greenhouse. This SUV will arrive with more wood trims, especially on the dashboard and door panels. The 2021 model is about to arrive with new upholstery and touchscreen options. Thanks to that, the 2022 Cherokee won’t introduce many changes.
Numerous Engines are Available
The forthcoming 2022 Jeep Cherokee will probably offer both Pentastar V6 and Hemi V8 engines. On the other hand, some reports are writing about the Jeep ditching one of the two outputs. The reason is a new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Moreover, this engine comes with the eTorque assist, which means Cherokee could offer a hybrid powertrain.
The most likely outcome is that all three units will be available at launch. We are waiting for Jeep to release exact engine specs and to confirm the diesel powertrain option. Yes, Cherokee will probably get a diesel engine as well. It is a 3.0-liter V6 engine that is available in Ram 1500 truck and it generates 260 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque. Jeep is yet to confirm Cherokee’s engine lineup for 2022.
2022 Jeep Cherokee Price and Release Date
The all-new 2022 Jeep Cherokee will hit the dealerships at some point during 2021. Most likely, Jeep will release its new SUV in the second half of the year. As for the price, Cherokee will cost slightly below $30,000. This is not official, but we know the Grand Cherokee variant will start at $34,000.
