2022 Jeep Cherokee Configurations: For 2022, the Jeep Cherokee lineup consists of four trim levels or models: X, Latitude Lux, Trailhawk, and Limited. 4WD is standard on all but the Latitude Lux configuration.
The 2022 Jeep Cherokee delivers daily practicality with superb ride-and-handling qualities, independent front and rear suspension systems with world-class body torsional rigidity, and a choice of two engine options connected to an upgraded, high-efficiency nine-speed automatic gearbox.
New for 2022
The new Cherokee X configuration combines strong off-road Jeep brand style elements with a distinct on-road front fascia and fresh graphics to create an outward look that is all it’s own. Additionally, it has enhanced cloth/vinyl upholstery with distinctive inlays, a 1-inch raised suspension and a standard 3.2-liter engine all at a competitive price.
On the Latitude LUX, new standard equipment includes a power liftgate, a 7-inch full-color TFT display, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a security alarm, a universal garage door opener, and a 115-volt power outlet.
All 2022 Jeep Cherokee configurations are now equipped with the Uconnect 4C with an 8.4-inch touchscreen and SiriusXM Radio as standard equipment.
3.0-liter Hurricane Twin-turbo I-6 Engine
There are two engine options for the Jeep Cherokee in the year 2022.
A 3.2-liter Pentastar V-6 engine is standard on all models. It can get up to 29 mpg on the highway and has 271 horsepower and 239 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the best in its class. The 3.2L Pentastar V6 engine has a lot of horsepower and torque. It has dual overhead camshafts, high-flow intake and exhaust ports, Variable Valve Timing, Electronic Throttle Control, and Engine Stop/Start. When the car comes to a stop, the fuel flow stops and the engine shuts off. When you let go of the brake pedal, the engine starts up and the nine-speed automatic transmission starts up.
A 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine is available on the Latitude Lux and Limited. This is one of the most advanced engines in the automotive industry, and it can get up to 31 mpg. This engine has 270 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque, so it can do a lot of work. The 2.0L direct-injection turbo engine has Electronic Stop/Start technology, which makes the car more efficient, faster to start, and more comfortable for the driver.
Both engines come with a nine-speed automatic transmission that comes with them as well. The 9-speed automatic transmission on 4×4 models makes sure the engine is working at its best and allows for quick starts and smooth power delivery. When 4×4 capability isn’t needed, the standard nine-speed automatic transmission and industry-first rear-axle disconnect help save energy and improve fuel efficiency by disconnecting the rear axle.

Which 2022 Jeep Cherokee to Buy
I believe that the Latitude Lux trim might be the best option for the majority of consumers. At a modest price, you get leather seats as well as a slew of extras that improve the Cherokee ownership experience. The turbocharged engine is also available as an option with the Latitude Lux configuration. The Trailhawk, on the other hand, is the obvious victor if you want to do any form of off-roading at all.
There are 8 exterior paint colors available across all configurations.
- diamond black
- granite crystal
- sting gray
- billet silver
- slate blue
- hydro blue
- velvet red
- bright white
What’s your favorite of the 2022 Jeep Cherokee configurations? I think I like the Trailhawk the best. I’d have to option it with the comfort and Convenience group, Premium leather package, Sun sounds and navigation group, and Technology group packages to make it just right!
