The Jeep Cherokee is an affordable compact crossover/ SUV meant for both fun and families. Depending on the trim, the Cherokee can be the perfect vehicle for the adventurer or the busy parent who needs to drive the kids around town. The 2017 Cherokee lineup consists of eight trims, so how does a consumer know which is the one for them? To help you decide, here’s a quick rundown of each Cherokee trim.
There are a couple of mechanical options for buyers. All Cherokee trims, except for the Cherokee Overland 4×4, are equipped with a 2.4-liter I4 MultiAir engine paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission. The Cherokee Overland 4×4 comes standard with the 3.2-liter V6 engine with electronic start/stop and buyers of other trims can opt for the 3.2L engine or the other available 2.4-Liter I4 PZEV M-Air Engine.

If you want a Jeep model that is not as traditional as the Jeep Wrangler, but don’t want to lose the ability to off-road, Miami Lakes Jeep has you covered. We have a large collection of the Jeep Trailhawk models, which are a trim specifically created for off-roading and have their own style.
Currently, the Jeep Trailhawk trims include the Renegade Trailhawk, Cherokee Trailhawk, and Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and the anticipated all-new Jeep Compass Trailhawk (coming early 2017). Here are some features of Trailhawk vehicles that make them different than the other Jeeps in the lineup and add to off-road capability.

2017 Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot
Aside from the exterior style, the 2017 Jeep Patriot and Compass models have similar specs and very few changes were made to the 2017 models. The Jeep Patriot has a more boxy and rugged look, whereas the Jeep Compass looks similar to the Grand Cherokee, but it is a smaller compact SUV.
Both models are equipped with a 158-horsepower 2.0-liter I-4 World gas engine, that give both models an excellent fuel economy of 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. The 2017 Patriot and Compass lineups have been condensed from five trims to two, the Sport and Latitude trims. Since buyers have different needs, the Patriot and Compass models are available in three drivetrain configurations – standard front-wheel drive, available Freedom Drive I or Trail Rated Freedom Drive II 4×4 systems.
2017 Jeep Renegade
For the 2017 model year, all Jeep Renegade trims have received a couple upgrades. The Jeep Renegade is still equipped with a standard 1.4-liter MultiAir turbo engine and the 2.4-liter Tigershark engine with MultiAir2 paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission is also an available option to buyers, but it is standard on the Renegade Trailhawk. That engine configuration makes the Jeep Renegade the most fuel-efficient Jeep available with an average of 24 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.
Since the Renegade Dawn of Justice Edition and 75th Anniversary Editions are no longer available in 2017, the Renegade lineup will now only consist of four trims, including the off-road Trail Rated Jeep Renegade Trailhawk. All 2017 Renegade trims will have Keyless Go standard on all trims (late availability) and HID headlamps (late availability) and automatic high-beam headlamps will be an option to buyers. Finally, the Renegade Limited will have standard passive entry.
2017 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited
As one of the most popular models made by Jeep, the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited haven’t received many upgrades or changes for the 2017 model year. The Wrangler is a two-door SUV with seating for four people, and the Wrangler Unlimited is a larger four-door model with seating for up to five people. Read the rest of this entry
