Jeep Cherokee MPG

Jeep Grand Cherokee

The Jeep Cherokee is well-known in the industry as an off-roading legend, capable of taking you near and far, on pavement and off. Chicago and Skokie drivers can do their exploring in the Jeep Cherokee, which has received a refresh for the 2019 model year.

At Marino Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, we know you’re always considering vehicle features, specs, and a whole lot more in Park Ridge and Forest Park. One item all drivers are always thinking about is fuel economy, and in this case, Jeep Cherokee miles per gallon. Let’s take a closer look at the available engines and fuel economy of this vehicle.

Cherokee Engines and Performance

There are six different trim levels of the Cherokee currently available in the 2019 model year, and each one has its own personality. There are also three different engines to choose from in the Cherokee, so you’re able to customize what you want your drive to feel like.

The base engine is the 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir® 2. This 16-valuve engine has dual variable valve timing and a flow-control valve intake manifold. Linked to a 9-speed automatic transmission, it produces 180 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. A new engine on this edition of the Cherokee is the 2.0-liter turbo, which provides 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, for better towing capability.

Saving the most powerful for last, get outstanding performance and efficiency with the available 3.2-liter Pentastar® V6 engine. This includes engine stop/start technology, which can shut the engine off at a stoplight or when idling to save fuel. It can tow up to 4,500 pounds.

Jeep Cherokee Miles Per Gallon

One thing to keep in mind about the Jeep Cherokee is that it can be driven in either a 4×2 or 4×4 set-up. The two-wheel drive Jeep Cherokee has four wheels, but only two wheels are driven. The 4×4 means there are four wheels and all four are driven, for increased traction. This can affect MPG as you might expect.

Here is what you can expect out of the Jeep Cherokee engines when it comes to fuel economy.
