Jeep Cherokee Sales Figures

Jeep Cherokee

Here you will find monthly and yearly Canadian and U.S. sales figures for the Jeep Cherokee. The Jeep Cherokee is a series of SUVs manufactured by Jeep, a division of Stellantis (formerly Fiat Chrysler Automobiles). The Cherokee nameplate has a storied history that dates back several decades and has become one of the brand’s most recognized and best-selling models. The Cherokee is known for its rugged design, off-road capability, and comfortable ride. It is also a good choice for those who need a car that can handle light to moderate off-road driving.

Jeep Cherokee Overview

Over the years, the Cherokee’s design has evolved, moving from the boxy and utilitarian look of the XJ to more modern and aerodynamic styles in recent models. Still, elements like the grille have maintained a link to Jeep’s heritage. Jeeps, in general, are known for their off-road prowess, and the Cherokee has often been offered with multiple 4×4 systems to cater to various off-roading needs. The Trailhawk variant, for instance, is a more off-road-focused version of the modern Cherokee, featuring increased ground clearance, skid plates, and superior 4×4 systems.

The Cherokee has generally been well-received, especially in markets like the U.S., where SUVs are popular. The XJ, in particular, has gained a cult following among off-road enthusiasts and is often regarded as one of the best SUVs ever made. The more modern Cherokee faced some criticism for its initial design (especially the front lighting arrangement), but subsequent facelifts and updates have addressed many concerns. The Cherokee’s transition from a full-size SUV to a compact and then to a mid-size SUV reflects broader shifts in consumer preferences and market demands. Yet, through these shifts, the Cherokee has maintained a focus on versatility and off-road capability.

The current Jeep Cherokee is a compact crossover SUV that was first introduced in 2014. It is the fifth generation of the Cherokee nameplate, and is based on the Jeep Compass platform. The Cherokee is available in three trim levels: Latitude, Trailhawk, and Limited. It is powered by a 2.4L four-cylinder engine that produces 180 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. An optional 3.2L V6 engine that produces 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque is also available. All models come standard with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is available.
