What's the Best 2018 Jeep Cherokee Trim Level for Me?

Shoppers have plenty of reasons to consider the 2018 Jeep Cherokee. This modern SUV packs plenty of capability for the road or trail, and it also runs efficiently. You even benefit from a comfortable and functional cabin. The only hard part is deciding among the several Jeep Cherokee trim levels.


As the Jeep Cherokee base trim, the Sport offers plenty of value for the price. Thanks to the 2.4-litre inline 4-cylinder engine, you aren't constantly stopping to refuel this SUV. It provides good acceleration and hill climbing capabilities. The Jeep Active Drive I 4x4 system can be added, which sends power to all four wheels for superior capability in difficult conditions. When the system isn't needed, a rear-axle disconnect conserves energy.

Among the many interior conveniences is the Jeep Cargo Management System. Add to it with all kinds of accessories, depending on your tastes and lifestyle. The Uconnect 3 multimedia centre, which features a 5-inch colour touchscreen, is also standard.


The Jeep Cherokee Altitude has everything from the Sport, plus a more upscale and darker exterior design. Gloss Black 18-inch wheels contribute greatly to that effect. Bi-xenon HID headlights help with nighttime visibility, too.

On the inside, the SUV gains a leather-wrapped steering wheel.


If you select four-wheel drive for the North trim, automatic headlights come standard, so you don't need to turn them on or off. Also, the exterior mirrors and doors handles match the SUV body colour. In addition, 17-inch aluminum wheels go for a brighter appearance.

You can fold the front passenger seat flat, making it easier to load especially long items into the Jeep Cherokee North.


Choosing the Jeep Cherokee Limited means even more luxuries, if that's what you want. The seats are faced with Nappa leather, and the front seats contain heaters for greater cold weather comfort. The Uconnect 3C multimedia centre has an 8.4-inch colour touchscreen, making reading menus and selecting options easier.

A standard ParkView rear back-up camera switches on whenever you shift the transmission into reverse, eliminating the risk of hitting something. Capping things off are 18-inch polished aluminum wheels.

High Altitude

Like the Altitude, the Jeep Cherokee High Altitude trim darkens up the exterior. The badges, grille surround, roof rails, and side window moldings all are done in Gloss Black. Even the 18-inch wheels have the same Gloss Black finish. Plus, you get the luxurious Limited equipment.


If you plan to leave the pavement behind and head out on dirt pathways, the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk will serve you well. It doesn't have the leather-faced seats or heaters up front, but this SUV does help you go just about anywhere. Among the unique equipment for this trim is a Jeep Active Drive Lock 4x4 system. It combines with Selec-Terrain Traction Management's Rock mode to aid in crawling over obstacles with relative ease.

Wrapped around the 17-inch off-road aluminum wheels are all-terrain tires. They help maintain excellent traction on all kinds of surfaces.

Trailhawk Leather Plus

Adding to the equipment list, the Trailhawk Leather Plus comes with Nappa leather-faced seats, plus heating/ventilation up front. The heated steering wheel makes cold winter mornings and nights more enjoyable. Even more conveniences come in the form of a power liftgate and Keyless Enter 'n Go with remote start.


For the most premium version of the SUV, choose the Jeep Cherokee Overland. Body-colour front fascias and wheel flares communicate what this SUV is all about.

On the interior, the Alpine sound system with 9 amplified speakers pairs up with the Uconnect 3C NAV system with an 8.4-inch touchscreen for the ultimate in entertainment. Zebrano wood trim on the steering wheel accentuates the fact this trim is all about exclusive touches.
