The 2021 Jeep Cherokee is available in 5 trims – Latitude Standard, Latitude LUX, Latitude Plus, Limited, and Trailhawk. While all these options come with a nine-speed automatic transmission system, engine power depends on the trim level – the standard engine being a 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder engine producing 180 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque, and the most powerful being a 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 270 hp, 295 lb-ft of torque, and a towing capacity of 4,000 pounds. The most striking features of the SUV, however, are its MSRP and fuel economy.

How to improve the fuel economy?

The fuel economy of the 2021 Jeep Cherokee Latitude can be improved by following these steps:  

  • Avoid mounting heavy weights on your SUV – Heavy weights require the engine to combust harder, reducing gas mileage
  • Maintain steady speed within the speed limit – Aggressive braking and acceleration leads to a faster rate of switching gears, which in turn reduces the fuel economy by almost 30%
  • Perform regular maintenance – Regular maintenance can nip all the performance buds in your SUV and help the engine to run efficiently, thereby improving fuel economy
