Jeep Cherokee Trim Levels

While the 2017 Jeep Cherokee has long been known as one of the finest off-roading vehicles on the market, do you know just how luxurious it can be? Across the eight available trim levels, Chicago, Skokie, and Park Ridge drivers will have access to tons of creature comforts and additional features.

It might be a lot to parse through on your own. So, to give you a leg up, our team at Marino Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram has put together this helpful Cherokee trim guide.


Jeep Cherokee Trim LevelsThe Sport trim serves as the base model of the 2017 Jeep Cherokee (though “basic” is by no means how we’d describe it). While it has many versatile and high-powered features, we’re going to be focusing on the highlights of each trim.

Performance Specs

The Sport comes equipped with a 2.4L inline 4-cylinder MultiAir® engine. With this streamlined powertrain, it can generate up to 180 horsepower, all while maintaining 28 highway MPG and 21 city MPG.1 With all that power, the Sport can easily haul up to 4,500 pounds of cargo.

Off-Road Capability

The Jeep Cherokee includes two very important systems in lieu of a standard drivetrain: Jeep Active Drive I and the Selec-Terrain® system. When paired together, these features grant you the capability to traverse almost any road surface imaginable.

Interior Comfort

A total of 103.4 cubic feet of space is available for Cherokee passengers, including 24.6 cubic feet of cargo space. In the Sport, drivers will also have cloth low-backed bucket seats with 6-way manual adjustment for drivers.


The standard entertainment suite in the Cherokee includes a 6-speaker audio system and media hub with USB port, auxiliary jack, and SD card reader. Together with a 5-inch touchscreen, these features complete the Uconnect® 5.0 package.

Safety Features

To increase vehicle stability, the Sport comes equipped with all-speed traction control and Electronic Stability Control. Advanced airbags have also been installed throughout the entire vehicle.
