Jeep radically simplifies the 2023 Cherokee lineup. Only two trims will be available for this model year: the new Altitude Lux 4×4 and the Trailhawk. Prices for this are not yet available.
the Cherokee® Altitude Lux 4×4 with gloss black parts for the grille surrounds, body panels and emblems. The model rides on 17-inch wheels with a gloss black finish, and an 18-inch size is optional.
Inside, the Altitude Lux is upholstered in black nappa leather and trimmed in Piano Black. Heated steering wheel and seats are standard. It features an 8.4-inch infotainment display with navigation. Safety tech includes adaptive cruise control, parking sensors, and parallel and perpendicular parking assist.
The only engine option is a 180 horsepower (134 kilowatts) and 171 pound-feet (232 Newton meters) 2.4-liter four-cylinder. It’s hooked up to a nine-speed automatic. The model features Jeep Selec-Terrain traction control system with Auto, Snow, Sport and Sand/Mud modes.
Jeep is also making some upgrades to the 2023 Cherokee Trailhawk. It now comes standard with automatic high beams, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a security alarm and a universal garage door opener. Inside is the 8.4-inch infotainment system with navigation. Adaptive cruise control and parking assistant are also among the improvements.
The Trailhawk uses a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 270 hp (201 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm). It also has a nine-speed automatic but wins a rock drive mode.
The revised lineup means the Latitude Lux, X, and Limited are no longer available. These changes came just a year after Jeep streamlined the Cherokee lineup for the 2022 model. At this time, it introduced the X model and discontinued the Altitude, Freedom, and 80th Anniversary variants.
The current generation Cherokee is reportedly nearing the end of its run. The new one is reportedly larger than the existing model. There would be an electrified powertrain. The vehicle would also spawn a Wagoneer version, according to a rumor.
